Yup suicide star... Hopefully Xmods don't get down graded to little 1:64 pipsqueaks.

Then again, let's hope some of the Zip Zaps innovations get trasferred over... Somehow...

That makes sense to you?

"Welcome to the Zip Zaps, brought to you by the Xmods brand"

Yes, but, $$$ wise, not viable I guess, having to run seperate lines for the different drivetrains (and that they would have to provide more individual kits to convert the cars back to another drivetrain, EX: RWD to FWD, or FWD to AWD) Just easier to sell them all RWD, and provide the parts for the other two.

And, I can't think of another manufacture that does do that with R/C cars.

Plus modding = more fun..

This is stupid their toys these are not meant to be exact replicas down to VIN numbers and such...their still toys and the 10 Year old that its designed to provide pleasure too isnt going to complain about it not being FWD when the real car is...

Moreover if you want that kind of scale accuracy maybe the cars should have interiors??

Name me another major RC line that has the motor up front.

Front heavy cars do not handle well... Gotta have room for steering, and AWD.
