I have big problem with small models.
I want buy off-road model in scale 1:28 but I don't know which model i should buy.
I think about truckin and overlander.
In shop where I can buy these model is truckin f-150 and mini-z overland porsche cayen.
F-150 is for me more pretty but mini-z have beter performance.
Truckin with 4wd, hilift and lights uprades is even cheper than mini-z.
But overlander has very good suspension.
What do you think about it???
Please help :) :rolleyes:

Is the trucking F 150 an Xmod?

go with the mini-z overland. They rock! You can get a F-150 for the overland if you really want to run a truck body.

Yes thid ford f-150 is truckin.
In kyosho.de I heard that f-150 will be about after 3 months.
Now they have only porsche cayen, bmw x5 and toyota harrier.

Have you got any photos or movies with xmods truckin???

Salvatore, do you have any other pics of your track setup? It looks fantastic from what I can see!

klima, in those pictures the "Truckin" (most people refer to them as xMod trucks) truck is the orange F-150, the Mitsubishi Pajero (white) and BMW x5 (blue) are both Mini-Z's

Has truckin full proportional control???

Have you more photos truckin vs mini-z???

Yea I am waiting for porsche cayen or toyota harrier.
Unfortunately f-150 is inaccessible now :mad: :(

The xMod has "Semi" probo controls, I think it has something like 8 step steering or something like that, where-as the mini-z has true proportionial steering.

Xmod truck as crappy plastic. And very little suspension travel, I can get it to articulate an inch stock, with soft springs.
