dude... what would make ur custom XTM painting even better is if you put "RACING" in yellow, right below the TM.

Yeah, but I figure that yellow doesn't really go with the black and red So if anything it will be in red.

I use to have one. Worked pretty well after a few suspension mods.

You'd be suprised. Yellow goes really well up against black and red... like trim and such.

The roto start for the Savage .21 is a direct fit.

Wow the racing kit version is a sweet deal. I want a .12 rear exhaust engine to be race legal. Any suggestions? I want a decent engine at a decent price? And what radio? I want a decent one with dual sterring rates, etc. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I have an X-C and love it, i bought it last summer, this thing is a beast. I am planning on dropping in a new engine probably something like an O.S. .18 TZ Turbo, i might have to make some adjustments but i don't care. Right now i have titanium turnbuckles with blue rpm ball cups and a high torque steering servo, oh and some lime green losi rims with racing tires. Nothing special but planning on upgrading soon. When i get done i want it to be all blue, green, and some orange.

I'd snag a .12 CVR. And you can't go wrong with a JR XR3i or a Futaba 3PM. the XR3i is a better deal, IMO, because of the Z590M servo included.

Does anyone have any pics of a hopped up X-C?? I was thinking about making my X-C into a project. I'm thinking about making it strictly for street use. Any suggestions and what are your guy's opinions??

Here's mine. The upgrade list goes on... I have added a few things here and there since the pictures were taken, but not too much. I stripped off all the black and blue and polished all the aluminum as well. The FR18 is just my bashing engine, I race with the SH .12.








Here are some older pictures. I had painted all the plastic chrome, and it looked KILLER. I gave up on that after realizing how nitro dissolves paint lol. I sent in these pictures to RC Car Action Mag and got a reply from Paul Onnorato saying that it was concidered for the readers rides section. Kinda sucks though, 5 months later and it's still not there... so whatever.
