Well i had the idea to do this for over a year i wanted to make it really good but i was driving my xmod with my friend and after driving my mini-z i hated it. So i went home and after 4 hours of work i went to sleep at 4am then woke up and worked on it for another hour and a half. i got a very good result out of it and i am extremely happy for only 5 1/2 hours of work.

soory for the crappy quality photobucket would only allow a 100mb or smaller file and i had this at 300+mb so its not the best.

You should put on some overland wheels, I bet they would roll better on the road.

i dont have any overland wheels but i am remaking this. i got it back down to the bare chassis.

That is stripped down to almost an ASC type chassis isn't it.

ASC Auto Scale Collection. The display chassis the Kyosho bodies are mounted on. The kind used in the Mini Z rocket thread. I just said that as it has all the electronic guts striped out.

yupp it WAS like that now i took it all apart i filled the differentials with some putty stuff to weigh it down a bit. the mid section of the chassis will be remade out of brass since the plastic burns when the motor pops for the nose cone to pop of but i don't have one on.

its actually my best working xmod. nothing has yet to break and i got it off a friend of only $8. and now the mid section of the chassis was replaced with a brass frame and will eventually be where the rocket motor will go.
