Default basement winter fun?

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

add another cell or two to the car. way cheaper then lipo and for the $ its adds alot of speed. METAL berrings!! help a ton. motor upgrade with gearing fit to your track.

do you have a 100$ limit for upgrades? or for the car and upgrades?

you guys should just get some micro t's keep them stock and race there $100 and rtr and they will do much better then xmods dont get me wrong xmods are fun but to make the actully drivable you will need a bunch of hop ups just a thought

I used to only be into xmods untill i stopped in my local hobbytown I had over 10 cars and trucks, they have really slowed down on xmods not as many parts and stuff lately. But go to atomicmods.com you will find alot of stuff about xmods on there and there forum.

For speed, you can add a 5th or 6th cell on the evo's. I would only add a 5th, 6th cell is to hard to fit in some bodys. I have only been able to fit a 6 cell in the mustang bodys. Your best bet would be to get some lipo's off atomicmods. I used to always run there lipos. The 2s2p is the best packs and mounts on the stock chassis. Or you can buy the stiletto chassis with li-ions. For motors, there is some upgraded motors you can use with stock fet's but there is many more that require stacked fet's. A 2x4 stack is really the most you will ever need to run any motor with lipo's. Thats really all you can do with them for speed wise but there crazy already with lipos, and you can do aluminum stuff.

But if it were me for basment bashing and stuff i would definitely go with microt's. There about the same size and are way more fun! Brushless, more suspension travel for jumping and stuff.
