I've seen that people have gone the other way and mounted mini-z bodies on xmods chassis. But is it possible to fit an xmods body on a mini-z without modding too much?

I think the Xmod bodies are too skinny to fit MiniZ chassis.

Ok, I've been googlin' like a mofo trying to find info on Mini-Z and Xmods without luck. Maybe the best way is too find a cheap body and try it.

Thanks for the help anyways.

Zs on Xs is much more feasable I think than Xs on Zs.

I have converted an xmod shell but it is a bit top heavy for racing on my 94mm AWD.
It used the front and side clips from an audi A4
+3 wide rear wheels (sticking out of body kit)
+1.5 narrow front (with inside of body shaved)
Weight:42 grams

Nice, I'm kinda new and saw that xmods have styling parts, that's the main reason for the question =)
