First:
Setup for carpet track:

-Front Diff almost locked, +100wt silicone oil on diff gears (makes cornering much more controlled)
-Rear Diff almost loose, just normal lithium 1:1 grease on diff gears (makes cornering much more conttrolled)
-Front springs stiff (Blue ones from Xmods kits) (makes steering better and controled)
-Rear Springs medium (Yellow ones from xmods kits) (makes steering on the back, easy, for the front)
-Front Tires more then 30. Medium soft compound. (in here, softer will turn agressevely, hard will not steer at all.....)
-Rear Tires really soft to grip, less then 10. Softer or very soft compound (GRIP an more grip, always needed for control)

From my experience any scale of cars without 4x4 are useless.... so.. what to do?? (except for 2wd racing on tracks with enough grip, but that you need to go to a track.. at home you don't have track)

-Installed!

Much better now... only the crap steering response is driving me crazy! but i know the xmod gen1 pcb is a evoluted toy... :)

When not on a track (where's grip) we need 4x4 to handle any scale of RC, otherwise all will spin out trying to find their own tail, lol!


I enjoy myself, doing this stock upgrades for now...

-Metal bearings... any true rc needs them! And the size as i can remember is 3*6*2. But there are 2 that are a secret in xmods... that on the later end of the project i will tell, that are another measure, because if you use the stock size, problem will happen sooner and faster of a blink of a motor :)

I suppose it's never too late to discover Xmods. :) I still have a mildly tuned Gen 1 Xmod in my box, it's a decent car with surprisingly decent handling once you get the servo working straight. That said, you can modify the chassis SO much more than with Mini-Z's -- the modular chassis architecture is way more user-friendly to creating custom chassis than the Mini-Z's all-in-one box chassis.

To sort the steering out there is a tight turn mod, soldering resistors on to the wires from the servo to the board, also you may want to stack ther fetts as this will aloow you to run the more powerful motors.

Never to late for xmods. True!
When they got mini-z (AM or ASF) pcb or losi micro pcb or any hobby grade pcb, they are indead very good, some say a lot better then miniz's (when Full loaded, €500+), but i do not want to go there. It's an old battle, but the true, is: If you got the Balls and the money, xmods are indead a piece of history :)

Miniz's are a pure racing pedegree, yet they need some hop ups to, but the funny thing is that the handling on xmods when big money was spent, that they are amazing true RC's!

And they are more modular and absolute customs chassis or bodys....to work out! (the stock upgrades are better then the stock out of the box, but for serious Rc's you need to go all full alloy)... in there the miniz's plastics wins!

Well, more of the mine :)

Hope all of this was worth your money man... Also, no GPM knuckles? Also, no MA axle/wheel mod??

-Gpm knuckles on this is crucial, later! (better, everything in alloy is crucial on this... stock plastics are rubish, just not like the miniz plastics, wich eventually give place to alloy too :) )
-MA axle/wheel mod? (what is that, don't know... or maybe know... but not seeing right now, maybe the 3*6*2.5?)

It's worth it, believe. But it's a long battle to make it special,special one!
Have faith! This is a long process!

If you notice it's got a heck of potential for tuning/upgrades, otherwise is a 50dollar evo toy called xmod!
-Central position of motor with pinion right on spur gear to the central shaft!
-Bateries on each side to center balance!
-Low COG on all body!
-4 independent suspension arms

Better not underestimated it. (and i got several miniz's -mr01-mr02-awd-monster...so i just know a little of it all). And we "portuguese" got some credit on the miniz world, you know... lol

But xmods they need some minor tweaks besides full alloy! Dozens of hours to understand what is wrong even with gpm!

In the end is a true RC racing machine. By racing i mean real race! (not just flat out speedays like kids on youtube!) :) and the evo ones are better then gen1!

-The Evo board on the Gen1 chassis.... and it works!!!!!!!!!

:) Problem is reversed steering... when i checked everything on the servo... it goes to right the horn... but on the car horn to right means tires to left ...
no problem, just switch the remote!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZzloN5YJDM
-And a video of the Evo board connected to the Gen1 car.... it works!!!!!!! Better than the stock.... 2x3 fets give some punch... even with stock motor!

hum... got rid of the gen1 pcb and puted an evo one? I gotta be joking... well it's for the better, just a little better! lol

My stress for the GEN1, (pinions) progress...
http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb18/fronterasportforum/Gen1%20X-mod%20Nissan%20GTR/97_220120111163.jpg
-Hammer it :) :shock: I used a old motor arm and puted the metal pinion that i get out from the 8 gear motor with a hammer.
-Then i GET out "again" the pinion with a pinion puller...
-And puted the pinion on a new racing motor .... by hand, it was very hard, but doable...

http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb18/fronterasportforum/Gen1%20X-mod%20Nissan%20GTR/99_220120111166.jpg
-In the almost end... i used a vice.

http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb18/fronterasportforum/Gen1%20X-mod%20Nissan%20GTR/98_220120111164.jpg

http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb18/fronterasportforum/Gen1%20X-mod%20Nissan%20GTR/100_220120111167.jpg
-And it's done.... I am so happy now!

http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb18/fronterasportforum/Gen1%20X-mod%20Nissan%20GTR/102_220120111169.jpg
-And breaking the new motor in!

Need time to put this on the GEN1. I am passing from 26.000rpm motor on 4.8v which should be more on 6.6v... to 41.000rpm on 4,8v... which indeed with 6.6v give .... more rpm's

And now (12-2012) i can remove and put brass pinions on a blink of a eye! Using other method to put! But for removal is the same as showed...

-Installed....

Now that's loud and speedy, i liket it!

Can't control it... to much power... maybe the pcb on top should have the culp right! (Eventually i will dith this motor, This is the second that i put on a 4wd car and they all burned after some play with li-fes) So it's a no go motor for me! T2 or Chilli are still alive!

In front wheels i got the "smaller" ones, with normal tires.... i decided that is time for a bigger ones in front...

....yes xmods need the alloy! Mini'z plastic are good enough! Not the plastics on xmod! But aftermaket alloy is the goal to make a real rc out of an xmod "evo toy"

Need to make some videos...

PS:the gen1 servo on this works very great! Very! And the handling control of the chassis is awesome, ready for track smoking!! ::::)
And by the way... Z2 motors are only for 2wd because on 4wd they will get very hot, and smoke!
That is the second Z2 motor i smoke! (the first not on this chassis)
So a Z2 is a no go motor for me. Used to 4wd never go back! :)
