I have the Tamiya body on a HPI sprint2 drift. With Tamiya mesh wheels, I think 3mm offset.
The stock staggered wheels fit better though. But they do rub, when running.
No pictures since I have put the grill in.

Actually, the 185mm refers to the track/width of the chassis, and most Tamiya chassis sedans are 185mm, which is more true to scale. When the TA02 chassis came out they offered the TA02Wide chassis which was 190mm, which also was a dimension that HPI latched onto when the RS4 first debut back in 94/95' (It was adjustable between 190mm and 200mm track) . HPI then began making sedan bodies like they had a gun to their heads, from Porsche to BMW and Ford, etc. They were mostly 190mm, which never quite fit Tamiya 185mm track very well. Tamiya has also done slightly wider tracks with the TA04 and TL01 chassis sedans in the late 90's, which bumped them up to be more in line with HPI's 190mm standard. When the Nitro RS4 came out in the late 90's, the stock setup was 200mm, likely because the power to weight realized better handling with the wider track. You could still adjust the track, but by now HPI had a majority of their bodies offered in 200mm so it wasnt necessary. Sorry, I'm old and remember all this stuff and how it has evolved over the last 22 years.
