      Comments about XMODS® Custom RC XMODS Custom RC 1:24 Scale Starter Kit:

      As someone who has owned xmods since the beginning, I can say that these are improved upon in almost every way. The electronics are beefed up tremendously, the steering geometry is straight as an arrow, the wheels have minimal slop and the 2.4 Ghz radio extends range to the point where any added speed is actually usable. the bigger wheelbase and higher clearance means its comfortable running in open parking lots, while still small enough to run indoors, and I would still consider it pocket-sized so its a great time killer on the go. The biggest drawback out of the box is the slightly lower top speed and added weight compared to older models, but it is nimble and punchy, easily spins tires on my concrete slab and the nitro booster is AWESOME, it really surprised me. The hi-speed rear end has a different gearing and motor which helps in parking lots, but didn't have enough torque for my liking so it sits for now awaiting some neo magnets... Also, lithium of any kind is really a must-have for speed, since the AA batteries add a LOT of weight over the previous generations AAA's. The stock body is actually from Ridge Racer and fits the new chassis like a glove, I especially like the functional roof scoop that lines up closely with the vents for the aluminum heat sink, which is also included stock complete with thermal compound. This car is truly lithium ready right out of the box, though I do have a V2 board that I'm sure will get used eventually. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of a lack of upgrades, which will hopefully come along down the road. Bottom line: this car is fun and has more potential than the previous generation.

        I have the xmods 1:24 car and all of the available upgrades. I love it and the upgrades are great. I bought the nitro kit and kept the body but i sold the booster because it wasn't great. It just made the car extremely hard to control. The high speed motor in addition to the lipo battery make the car really fast and the light kit makes it look cool and enables you to drive in dark places. If youre reading this, buy it. Its worth it.

          Comments about XMODS® Custom RC XMODS Custom RC 1:24 Scale Starter Kit:

          First off. here is how to fix the wheel binding issue (will cause car to be slow or not drive straight)
          Step 1: Remove tire(s) from rim(s)
          Step 2: Remove Hub cap(s)(easily come off)
          Step 3: loosen screw until desired amount of spin

          other than that its a great toy for every one easy to use and upgrade, doesn't seem as fast as the 1st generation and would really like adjustable steering trim. but its durable fun and affordable. hope to see more upgrades come out.

          I liked the bigger size compared to the older ones. I wish they came with real car bodies. It is extremely slow at first. I immediately ripped it apart, made a new chassis for it, added lithium ion batteries, put a v2 board on it along with a new motor. Now this car is extremely fast! It needs the AWD upgrade though. I really hope Radio Shack comes out with one. Overall it is put together very well and seems strong. As mine sits now it does about 50mph from the stock 10mph.

                It's fast and durable. I have crashed this thing into tons of furniture pieces at full speed and the plastic doesn't crack. It's a lot of fun. I can "drift" the car on hardwood floors. I'm not a "big" R/C person but I could not imagine something better than this for the price point.

                Battery life is pretty darn good. Still fun on carpet (although carpet does directly impact batter life).

                I recommend this R/C car. In fact, for what I paid, it's really a steal.

                  First thing I did when I took it home was pull everything apart. the current upgrades are nice for getting kids (and my girlfriend) interested in customizing these cars. What I did find interesting though is that the stock front end fits the gears to be made AWD in the future. Even if Radioshack doesn't support Heavy customization later on, others can potentially produce metal bearings, tighter gears, ect... I even pulled the motor out and re spun the wires to get a little extra speed out of it.

                  At the end of the day, I reccomend this to begginers hands down. but if you're an enthusist, be prepared to work hard for Serious upgrades because it's not as easy as previous generations.
