Well, this is my car. Its not really a mini-z, its not really an xmod, its not really anything, but my Frankenstein. I built it in the effort to make an xmod gen1 "raceable", but I guess I kinda ended up with a MR-015 with hobby grade elecs and an indepedendent front suspension. Believe it or not, it handles very well (even in my novice hands). I designed it for a small carpet track I made in my basement a few months ago.

What I started with:

Here's where she stands right now:

MR-series Rear Pod
MR-series Kyosho Ver.II Ball Diff
MR-series roll shock (Medium)
MR-series SSG T-plate (Medium)
Medium Front Springs
Purple Aluminum front Knuckles
Intellect 750's
Tazer 12t ESC
Futaba 27MHz AM system
Hitec HS-55 servo
TRM Voodoo 33t
Bearings all around
ATOMIC Deep Dish Rims (+3 offset)
Carpet Radials 8

Also, I don't know if this shouldn't be a thread (rather it being a post in the gallery), but its kinda something ingenuic (if that) and I thought maybe you guys would like to see it. I know, its nothing compared to the 'spensive stuff you hardcore racers drive, but it'll handle itself around the track.

I hope to race it in HFAY next year if I get the chance. :p

Feel free to comment, and don't hate too much :)

Look's like it's just an Xmod with an MR rear end. Certainly unique that's for sure!

i don't think he's even using a servo-saver.
i think it's the most extremely modified xmod that still looks like an xmod

Very cool looking end-product. Keeps XM and Z G1 feel. My question is, how long do those nimh's last you?

Awesome! I still have lots of Gen1s laying around. Maybe I'll try something like this. Can you post pics of the bottom of the chassis???
