    The best way to downsize it is get a photo program. I recomend IrfanView.com. Download that, then go to Image, Resize/Resample. Then size it to about 1/3d the size max.

    But you can make 190 into 200... Not sure if they make 200 into 190... but every 190 is a 200.. just not vise versa...

    Ok... im confused. When they say 190, is that the wheel base? Or just how wide out the body is? So the bodys would like up the same leight just be diffrent widths?

    190mm/200mm is the width of the body. all wheelbases are very close within a couple of mm so that is why wheelwells are almost always molded. the only bodies that have cutouts for different wheelbases are some proline bodies that have no molded rear wheelwells.

    190mm/200mm for bodies is the wheelbase not the width.

    its for the width...
    nitro have to wider to fit that huge exaust along the side...
    you can fit a 200mm WIDTH body on a electric, and get like +5 offset...or PVC dish rims

    but you cant fit 190mm on nitro, the pipe will rub and ruin it

    Ya... its width. I check on the 200MM Conversion for TC3... its just longer CVD's and Arms. I may just buy the arms and some hack CVD's... i think buggy ones may fit... or ill jut bite the bullet and buy a 190...

    I dont... i was just finding facts on how to prove what the 190 vs 200 is. and thats the only way i could. The track i will be running on isnt very big... its almost a micro track...

    no man...190mm/200mm refers to the wheelbase. just go look at a 190mm body and the 200mm body and compare them...it really is the wheelbase. nitros have a longer chassis-wheelbase wise. and plus, when i put the nitro body on my TL01, you can really tell the wheelbase on the body has too much cus my chassis comes up too short. you can even see a 10mm difference from the bodies.
