Just got the X2 yesterday. I really like this car. Much lighter than the x1 and the drivetrain is much smoother. I can't wait to drive it.

Daniel....older, heavier, and not as smooth. Were you talking about the x1 or it's driver? After trying out your x1 last wk I'm looking forward to seeing the difference with your x2. Wonder if those spiral gears will fit my z-car.

Here is what I know, new Chassis, one five minute practice at the Nitro Pit, Handeling got weird, started inspecting every thing, chassis was a frikkin taco, bent at several angels, used my worn out stock chassis..no issues at the Nitro challege '08..If you wanna upgrade I reccomend KH or F products..you get what you pay for..

Too Big..Gears will not fit the case, the stock gears are bullet proof on either model, the X2 jammin gears are spiral cut, so you have to change the pinion as well, not just the ring, The internals are the same as the X1, they work fine, just do your maintenace.

WOW, what a rip. It's going to suck when I whoop you after a long 8 months off from racing. Never Fear I will post the results of the next race we have together and of course the results when we meet up at the Psycho Nitro. Your Z-car will be put in it's place. As a second rate car, in second place to my Jammin.

make sure to shim the diffs tight, a little on the notchy side or the ring and pinion will strip. i have seen it happen alot to alot of different people. also on the internal diff put two shims on all the gear (the ones that make an X). i didnt do that on one of my diffs because the buggy directions dont say to and i stripped the internals. so i looked in the X2 truggy manual and it said put two on each so i did that.

They are the same bodies. The rear body post hole is moved a bit and the engine cut out is also moved. Thats all though

the X2 body just has sharpie marks to where the wholes are supposed to be for the x2 but just ignore the marks and cut where out where they were originally. also with the x1 you do not have to cut the front part off to make it fit.

As long as the opening for the cooling head is not cut out of the new x2 body it will fit. If its cut out them the hole will be off.
