Default 1:28 scale racing

Ok so winter is around the corner and i cant use my offroad MT's or ST's on my offroad course. so me and my buddies are going to get x mods from radioshack and build a track in his basement. We figure x mods cause they are cheep. we were gonna use mini z's but two of the 4 of us dont wanna spend the money (not me i like going fast) So xmods it is. whats an easy way to smoke these guy's with out spending anymore than $100? we put a cap on the cars to keep it fare. not a penny more and no ebay. cause ebay is like cheeting. i was thinkin about lipo's. can i use a two cell from like a smal air plane? ima try it nomatter what and plan on smoking the electronics. i'll upgrade that when i need to. im lookin so basicly kill these guys. i race 1/10 scale pan cars and 1/10 SK's and also race offroad occasionly. (nitro ST's) so im no dummie when it comes to a good car! and i have the right chargers for lipo li ion and any type of lythium batt. Help me kick my friends a**'s

These guys are trash talking, xmods are a great little car, get a chassis w awd, and bearings, order alloy driveshafts, and get two 750 mah 3.4 lith cells. Do a switch bypass(search xmodworld), and install some good wires.

That's it. Just a stg two, and some liths.


With that basic set up, my xmods were so fast, that on tinnis court, I would eat a set of tires in 3 cycles, and would instantly careen if you let off the trigger too fast, as it barely was touching the ground.

Xmods sometimes require electronics skills, and good sense, but for a small amount, they will certainly hop.
Conversely, the scale limits a lot of electronics options, but there are a ton of ingenious ideas, and helpful how to's to get your car how you want it.

Before xmods, I used to wait for parts, now after being active in xmods, I do most repairs myself, including elects.

If you want to learn a lot, and get a blindingly quick rc, get one.

If you want simplicity, and no hassle, well, get out of rc! Jk

I have 10 - 12 XMOD's. Fun for the indoors. All except two have full bearings and all kinds of other upgrades. Do not play with them as often as I like - Life & that thing called Work just seems to get in the way of me messing with my RC's. [&:]
