Default Xmods on sale 1/2 off

I have been wanting to get either a couple Xmods or Mini-z's to tool around the house against my kids with so it was nice to see Radio Shack will be running Xmods on sale for $24.99 for the next 2 days.

The sale doesn't include the Evolution Series but $24.95 isn't a bad price for the original series. They also have the 15min Quick Charge Triple A batteries on sale for $9.99 (for 4) along with the charger for $14.95. I got the Subaru Impreza and the Acura NSX. On my kind of slick tile floor the Acura turns much better than the Subaru. Not sure why.

the acura would handle abit better because it has a shorter wheelbase than the sti. x-mods have adjustable wheelbases. the acura is a shorter car than the sti, so therefore it uses the smaller wheelbase setting. I am currently trying to fix my x-mod subaru sti. I broke the drive cups.

What other cars use the smaller wheelbase setting or is there a kit to improve turning? The Subaru turns way too wide.

um, lets see... theres the acura, and... hmm, I cant think of any other ones. I dont know what kind of wheelbase that the evo has, the skyline, 350z, civic, mustang, and subaru all have long wheelbases. I dont know about the nsx, or the muscle cars though. if you want, you could just get a rsx body and adjust the chassis from the wrx to be a short one. the body top set comes with a shorter drive shaft.

but yes, there is a good mod that you can do to get any x-mod to turn tightly. it is a mod done to the steering servo, that increases its travel to full lock. you can check it out on www.atomicmods.com. it is called the "tight turns" mod.
