XMOD = A shitty remade mini-z. Mini-z was the first and its a reputable company inside the RC world. KYOSHO. They have vehicles that can compete with the best out there.
XMOD Evolution is indeed a better car. Now on par with old mini-z...but new iwaver and the new miniz 4wd edition will blow it away.
I played around with my mini-z vs an xmod and allthough power wise we were well matched. The turning and precision was off the charts compared to the xmod which was beyond jerky , non fluid , would just veer off for no reason left or right. Quite possible the worst driving car Ive ever driven. Made things no fun.
While mini-z It was darting about and just did everything perfect and smooth. You could go in straight line and let of the stick and it would continue in a straight line. While the xmod would need constant input to get it just to go straight.
Im sure its better now on the XMOD EVO which is basically an XMOD V2.0 , much better all around , lower cg , etc etc. But still its an xmod from RS.
Also RS has xmod parts...not rs parts for it. They are still made by xmod , just carried by RS.
