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.

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.
