I think it uses the same transmitter as the older Xmods.

why would they upgrade the unit and then make you still use the crappy transmitter, they should have made them work with any AM transmitter. that way if you have a good one, or even the stock Mini-z transmitter you can upgrade to it.

In the description of the Evo it does say it comes with a folding controller. Being able to use the K or IW Tx would be a nice improvement. Who know's, maybe (but doubtful) you might be able to.

I own both a Mini Z and the new Evo xmod and the xmod seems to be JUST as good to me,radioshack really did a great job with it, I thought it was going to be just as crappy as the gen. 1 xmods but wow, it drives like a mini z for 60.00
the Evo also has 9 amp FETs , I still upgraded them tho, BUT I did burn out my rear diff. running a nuke 130sm so thats something to watch out for!

Since you own the new Xmod, try using a standard AM transmitter with the Xmod on a "tight turn" course and let us know how well it works, if it works. Thank you in advance for the non-bias feedback.

Being the Devoted xmodder that i am, I too have noticed the new cars. I plan on ordering the G35 or the F-150. I am simply disgusted that they made a hummer instead of a Nissan titan.

You are very wrong there. They were offically released September 9th, (says the fat person at radioshack). Why they aren't in stores yet i do not know, but th warehouses don't have them because ive been trying to order one for the last 2 weeks.
