I'm getting on of these soon, like this week. Maybe the Acura NSX or some other car. Anyone else got one?

You can get them tricked out enough to get up to 30 MPH....With a few Aftermarket accessories...Like a Lithium Battery upgrade.....Sweet, Huh?

Caution: Barrel plugs are dangerous.

I have one, they are pretty fun with the stage 2 motor kit.  But, within a month my steering box broke.  Maybe its because I was doing jumps and landing on concrete with it

I have a couple. I'd rather have a Mini-Z, but I'm more into my Mini-T right now.

Yeah, I have a Supra and a Skyline.

Very fun cars, but kind of a money pit, so watch out for that.

Eh, Notice how I mentioned the fact that it would be upgraded to a Lithium Ion Battery system instead of the normal AAA, it pumps out more voltage for less weight.

 

I did forget to mention another upgrade

 

 

And Yes, X-Mods are the Remote Control Cars at Radio Shack that you can customize and stuff. Pretty cool if you know what your doing.....I think...

Stage 2 motors top out at maybe 12 mph max... do you have any idea how truely fast 25mph is with a tiny remote control car? Fast.


I did a 6-cell upgrade to my skyline, and that completely owned until I slammed it into a curb, messing up all the wiring. I'll get back to it some day.

Good luck with that. They break every time you use them. I know from experience.

Seems like a waste of money. Lets drive a plastic car around and
buy parts to it like a real tuner car. What is happening to your poor
lonley pantball marker. Still, the mustang one looks the best.
