    So today, I thought my XMods Skyline had completely fried. Took it all apart and I got nothing to work. So I purchased a new black 00 Civic XMod and swapped over all my suspension, awd, and steering stuff. That was a mess. 10000 screws and bolts later, I got the Civic all pieced up and even the 'junker' Skyline back together. Turns out taking the Skyline completely apart and all back together twice fixed it. So now I have nearly $200 worth of XMods & accessories :rolleyes:
    But it's worth it. The Skyline I had painted a gunmetal/pewter color, but several rollovers and a trip to California with it ate it up pretty bad. I had to chop a big piece of the front bumper off. So it's the beater. My Civic Xmod will have the bodykit and lights on Monday and stay fairly clean.
    I love rc cars, especially these since they're so cheap to buy.

    yeah, i used to have a tricked out rc10gt but i was always buying replacement parts for it. I want something that is fun and a little fast. I was curious if the xmods were fast.

    they're running over 20 mph. which, on 4 AAA batteries, aint too bad.

    but that speed is with new bearings and a stage 2 motor
