>X< Mods

Prelude to my question:

Allright, I was over at my friends house the other day and his 4 yr old brother was having a bday party. He got all kinds of toys, icluding RC cars. Loving cars, we took advantage of the situation. We opened them up and testing them and discovered his 4 yr old brother had received a $99 RC car made by Radio Shack that went more than 1250 feet per minute... Wow this gift is better than the gifts i get now Anways, he has this long gravel path way in his backyard that is on a big slope with some nice turns and scoops. Perfect for a lil racing action. I got the Ford GT (not slow but not that great) and he got the Benz (The Radio Shack made car) Wow the torque on that Merc. tour car was probably more powerful than my hondas engine It was real tite- it would throw up rocks and dirt, power slide thru turns, and even fishtail around corners... even the right rear wheel got all the power. Ive never had a remote control car in my life and this was pretty tite for a nicely made toy (im 17 i wont be rallying in real life anytime soon)

The Question:

Anyway, i was just wondering if any has ever bought or still has an X-Mod. They are new and Supposedly the best RC cars ever made; customizable to the smallest parts, wheel upgrades, all wheel drive upgrade, new rims/body parts/decals, and even engine upgrade... well just let me know what yall think bout them cuz i was thinkin bout gettin one. I dont know how fast they are and all that... Plus they are Super Street sponsered

Got it

I just got an x-mod for christmas. they seem to be fast for their size and they are extremely fun to upgrade (or maybe I just like to take things apart). I only have problems with my wheel alignment. The only way to fix it is with the remote and it is reset back when I turn it or the car off (and I think if I run out of range).

The X-mods are small cars. About the size of a Hotwheels or Matchbox. Maybe a little bigger. Probably not the kind of RC car you're thinking of.
