Impact,

Here are some pics of my car. Only had it for 2 weeks so I haven't had the time to upgrade at all yet.

To the guy that said something about parts....you can order all replacement parts from Radio Shack.

I think the car is pretty cool myself.

That looks exactly like my XMod(RSX, right?).

I am thinking of trying to use a normal rc controler(blazer, or maybe XR2, or some AM27 band transmitter), I am almost positive that there will be no conflicts, although I would like to use my M8 for this car...

Mine is the yellow Skyline....

I don't know if you can use a normal receiver in the car or not...may have to switch the plugs around.

Switching the plugs around, hmmm...
These cars are fun! My car was way too loose to drive on my floor, but now with the AWD option, it seems to push slightly(hahaha, atleast I got rid of that oversteer problem!), but still driveable. I might have to install the rear shocks again, get some more steering out of the car...

jon, are you thinking of getting the body kit for the car?
My body on the car is stock(I still have not put the bumpers or the side skirts or the side view mirrors on yet... lol), and I am still not sure if the body kit will increase downforce(more weight?)...

I am pretty happy with the performance with the stock body. Don't see a need to add more weight to an already heavy body.

I am thinking about adding the suspension kit....to gain some more steering though. I want more low speed. Plus, you get alum shocks which look cooler than the black plastic ones.
And the stage two motors with the heat sink. Very cool.


Does anyone run rechargeable AAA's in their car? They put out 1.2 volts were an alkaline puts out 1.5 volts per cell. Has anyone noticed a drop in performance with the rechargeables?

Thanks,
Jon

I still have not had too much time to mess with motors in my car yet, and don't they have stage three motors for these cars?Oh well.

As for batteries, I am using alkaline batteries, but they seem to use up QUICKLY.

Not sure about a Stage 3 motor kit yet....I know Radio Shack doesn't have them out yet. There is some other "mod" motors out there for sale on EBAY, but the stage 2 will do for me.

I don't want to run the rechargable batteries because of the 1.2 volt drop. On a small car like that, I think it would be a great difference. I have thought about running an extra 5th cell and rechargables, but don't know yet.

I don't know about the xmods but I'll tell you the rechargable NiMHs for the Mini-Z are MUCH faster than the alkalines off the shelf.
