Z-Mod Evo Car, Nissan Skyline GTR on start, Evo on end! (Project ASF)

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)




Second:
Grey X-Mod Evo Car, Nissan Skyline GTR!



I started to like this little bastards! So "Santa Claus" gave me another one for myself! :::

This is the second version of Xmods, the evo ones!

Here come another way to spend € and time.


-In the box! NEW!



-Side of the box!



-Back of the box!



-Outside of the box!



-Back of the car!


-Chassis itself!


-What the hell? 4x4 is NEEDED!


-Even on stock 4x4 is crucial....:rofl:

First impressions.... better steering than the GEN1, but that's oldschool story!

More time spent on the car... and with the rides on "home track" i feel the car is not good for race track! I guess i will have some work ahead... :::


-First the metal bearings all over it, 14 in total....plus the motor cradle heat dissipator! For race it's needed :devil:


-Titanium central shaft! Lighter and stronger! Feels awesome!




-Tire Grip grease To help the Grip factor :halo:

Let's see what can do to the handling for track racing...








-Droped the body all over with this kit!

-Put tinner wheels on front for complete backlash right to left with the body on front wheels... a very important bussiness for racing!








Project over! Thank you all!
