Okay if you haven't seen it already I posted it in my x=mod w/mini-z pcb thread and forgot there was a Videos forum. Anyway I'll post it again so it's easier to find.

I like the music track, but I can't figure out who it is.

techno hits volume 26 Bass T-power. There will be more vids with that type of music. Gets the racing juices flowing! I need a better camera which will add to the already exciting video.

It's decent. The turning radius is usable for racing say stock class. Anything faster and you'll flip. On another similar project I sanded the center part of the x-mod wheel down and put some old gpm rear tires on. Without realizing it the tire kept slipping because thats what keeps a xmod tire on. Anyway, I have more wheels to work with.

Before I had the body I ran it and it was pretty good. Not a speed demon around the track but it worked on xmod hard tires. I plan on doing 2 more projects and sending them back to arch2b.

With tape on the tires it drifts well. If you practice enough you can get around the track pretty quick even drifting. I think thats what's fun about it, being in complete control of an out of control situation.
