replaced the AAA's with 2Cell 1020mah Lithium polymer saddle pack (7.4volts).

added bearings to the front wheels (taking from GWS gearbox for RC planes)

Just replaced the stock motor with a long can 180 (wattage 01794). Had to lengthen the Acura's chasis and modify the body to make it fit.

This thing screams now.

Next up is AWD, and foam tires. need more traction for all this power.


What did you replace the rear axle with?

First I made a one to replace the broken one and then radio shack all of a sudden where sell replacements for 2.49 each plus shipping. I think I paid around $10.00 all together.

Is that for the whole rear axle, includeing the dog-bones.

I just broke the left dog-bone. But i don't think a simple plastic replacement will last much longer than the original, i am going to have to manufacture my own.

They are dogbones. The Radio Shack nearest you may have them in stock or you may have to order them. I had order mine. They are half metal but well worth the money.

well i successfully made a replacement cup part of the dogbone out of metal.

I took a 3mm allen head bolt, drilled out and deepened the head, hacksawed the slot, cut it to length and then filed down the flat on the end. after a little finish filing it fit.

Works great now.

I have six of them and it is hard to find the upgrade parts to upgarde them and I wish it was not so!

They are the cheapest micro R/C with with an AWD kit for them.

I paid 41 for an AWD kit on Ebay, for that price I could have bought 2 1/2 kits for my cars. I feel that Radio Shack is really losing a lot of money buy not grearing up to meet the demand.
Me and all five of my kids love racing in the garage!

I can't wait to be able to trick thm all out!

I have 3 Civic's, 2 Skylines and 1 Supra.
I will be getting another Supra as soon as another white one comes in!

They are cheaper than those Mini-Z's. and just as fast to me!
I have rewound all the motors and they still go about 30 mins on a charge.

Have fun People, we are!

I've had 3. XMODS suck. I will never own another one until they fix the glitchiness, give them fully proportional radio systems, and build them out of better components.

The Mini-Z and the iWaver are so much better then the XMODS.

Besides.. RWD>AWD>FWD.

Xmods are getting a face lift and have new kits coming out this year. They will have new bodies and a different chassis design with a lot of the components sealed. They will be offering cars and trucks with offroad kits. Here is a site that has the best pictures of the chassis on the internet. Http://www.Atomicmods.com -----Tony
