i spent the last one hour searching. I just cant make my mind. All i wanted was a toy micro RC car. then there was this micro RCcar by XMODS that had a whole lot of upgradable parts including a stage 3 motor upgrade!!! that costs about 50$

i am all confused. guess i'll pay a visit to toys kemp next week and then decide. WOW getting a RC car is as difficult to choose as a real one i guess!!!

trust me bro ..the XMOD ones are wicked fun ... u can convert them into AWD cars and what not ...get the supra or the skyline ... u'll love them .. i know they are small but still man ..they are worth it ..u cant get the body kits and vinyls ..its like ur NFS garage\man !
next on the list for me has to be the nitro motor ..

the xmod micro rc can take a nitro engine? i saw the list of mods available. more than what i could get for my GTX here i think

i love those wheels its got. looked awsome. i would go for the black skyline. it was killer. i also saw this monster trucks by zip zap again micro RCs.

i'll pbly decide by EOD today. but its gonna burn a really big hole in my wallet. heck i am being paid less than 10$ a day here! time to pack up my bags and head to the states i think. man i am really frustrated now!

nahhh ..only battery powered motor ..which can be upstaged ..
dont get the zip zap ones they r the size of hot wheel cars .. no fun .. but xmods are worth buying ...50$ in states is cheaper than canada (is 72 dollars plus 15% tax) ...but the mods will rippp u off !!

harrie - the XMODS RC's are around 5 -6 inches long give or take ..
and helll they have wicked new models ..NSX , 350Z and the stang and no more sh!t yellow skyline ! ..
..zip zaps are too small for any detail .. you'll get bored of them ..

iceman - are the nitro skylines on a site ?? www.traxxas.com specified by Khaadu has a nitro rc which tops at 62mph .. i couldnt figure out the retail though .. 200$ aint bad.. i paid 180 canadian for the supra ...

I just read the XMOD car's user manual. Man they really rock. And for 2500 INR they are not bad at all. I am thinking of ordering a black skyline completely stock as of now. Once i get bored with it i can upgrade the motor! wow this is the closest i can get to real life performance upgrades!!!

and beat this it even lets yuo adjust tie rods and suspension. wow this is really good. i'll order it on monday i think.

ICE i am just getting into RC cars. Getting into nitros right away will spoil the fun right besides i cant afford that now.

hehehe easy boy !!

you sound like a 7 year old opening his birthday present ..

yeah i know everything can be upgraded on it ..wheels.rims body kits ..from 2WD to AWD aswell ..

..i suggest order the parts along with car man . or else you will end up paying extra for shipping again .,. modd it later when you are bored ..(which will last 24 hours is my guess )

oye ! get something else ..black skyline is mine !!!!
