Modular design allows you to combine multiple starter track sets together to create larger and more spectacular layouts

Some special order parts my even be a lap counter and transponders.

#3 Xmods Bearings:
Xmod Bearings are unflanged and unsealed. Measurements are .235" Outside Diameter x .115" Inside Diameter x .079 Thick. In mm it is 3mm ID x 6mm OD x 2mm Thick. Have been told some Mini-Z bearings will fit. Note 3mm x 6mm x 2.5mm will fit in most places and reduce play and improve performance.

#4 Axles/Drive Shaft:
Axles are also .115" in diameter or 3mm.
Long Drive shaft 2.97 X 81L
Medium Drive Shaft 2.97 X 77L
Short (if there is one) 2.97 X 73L

#5 Remote:
The Xmods remotes that come with the cars are the ONE AND ONLY remotes that will ever work with the cars unless you replace the electronics inside (Receiver/Speed Control/Servo/Controller). Xmods Controllers with the same crystal WILL control other Xmods with the same Crystals.

#6 Manuals:
XMODS 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R VSpec Starter Kit
XMODS 2003 Acura RSX Starter Kit
XMODS 2000 Honda Civic Coupe (Black) Starter Kit
XMODS 2000 Honda Civic Coupe (Blue) Starter Kit
XMODS 1997 Toyota Supra (White) Starter Kit
XMODS 1997 Toyota Supra (Red) Starter Kit
XMODS Custom RC Stage 1 Motor Upgrade Kit
XMODS Custom RC Rubber Tire Upgrade Kit
XMODS Custom RC Steering and Suspension Upgrade Kit
XMODS Custom RC All Wheel Drive Kit
XMODS Custom RC Racing Crystals Set
XMODS Custom RC Wheel Upgrade Kit
XMODS Custom RC Command Logic Lights Kit
XMODS Custom RC Metal Bearing Upgrade Kit

#7 Wheel Nuts:
Wheel nuts are 2mm. Stock nuts are plastic. Most 2mm Lock Nuts should work. 2mm Lock nuts are used on the Mini-Z and the RS4.

#8 Mini-Z parts:
Bodies: Will NOT fit with out modification to the body mounts. Not all Mini-z bodies wheel basses are the same. So you may need to stretch or shorten the chassis on a Xmod. Changing the chassis length will also require changing of the drive shaft.

Battery Clips: On the Original Mini-z the clips can fit with minor sanding or fileing. The MR-02 is a new design and not at all compatible.

Motors: Mini-z motors will physically fit in the Xmod but the stock electronics may not be able to handle the faster more powerful motors. Also you will need to invest in a Pinion puller from a hobby shop that sells the 1:24 scale slot cars to remove the brass pinion on the Xmods motor. Don't forget your soldering iron as well.

Tires: The rubber tires on the Mini-Z can fit but since the Xmods have a raised part in the center of the wheel they will have a raised center when installed.

Part 2 listed further down

Hey CJ I was wondering if you know when we will see the tool kits and the carrying case. Is the carrying case like a back pack?

You can order parts by visiting the store or calling the Shack at 1-800-THE-SHACk.

# 5 is actually not true, at least not for cars of the same type. We had a guy running two white Supras off the same remote at the same time last night. It was pretty funny... synchronized driving. :lol:

I believe he means that you can only use xmods controler. You wont be able to say put the xmods crystals in a mini z controler and use that. You should be able to use any xmod controler though as long as its on the same freq.
