biline's 2003 Corvette Evo Xmod

I really need to start cutting back on this little collection I have going....
I had performed the Tight-turnz modification and I admit it performed very close to the new Evo chassis when it came to turning radius but the car just doesn't handle as well as the new Evo and the vastly improved driveline convinced me to try and shoehorn the Evo chassis under the Corvette body. more on this further down.....
(click any photo to enlarge)

This Xmod has many of the standard upgrades such as the 'AWD' drive kit and of course the suspension and Ball Bearing kits as well. I've ordered some of those metal Lock-nuts for the wheels as I've been cracking the plastic ones fairly regularly and losing my wheels!

This is the first and only Xmod that I feel looks the best stock I don't feel the body kit upgrade offered for the Corvette offers any parts worth changing but have a look and form your own opinion!

I have upgraded the motor to a 45 Turn armature with full ball bearing can and Neodymium magnets which are powered by 4 Sanyo 900 'AAA' NiMH
** Worlds top class capacity AAA NiMH battery. High capacity exceeds conventional Nickel Metal Hydride batteries. An increase in capacity of approximately 25% compared to conventional negative electrode material.
** Ideal for high power use with excellent discharge properties. 'Superlattice Alloy' has a superior discharge performance over conventional negative electrode material, making it ideal for RC cars that require a high rate of discharge. (As close to Lithium Ion as you can get but still stock)

The part outlined and marked B is the new body clip (an extra is included with your starter kit) The Corvette used here may be the only exception for correct fit when used with the Evo chassis as the only way to get the chassis to fit is to remove the holding post used to secure the lower side skirts. Note that at point A the piece was removed and the post shaved to allow the sideways mounted motor of the Evo chassis to fit, some creative use of crazy Glue on the side skirt solved the problem of the side skirt falling off. Lastly if you look at the wires for the Command Logic Light kit you'll notice no tape was used! I have discovered that a few well place drops of crazy glue on the wires solves the tape issue.

A These two connectors are for the Command Logic Light kits.
B These wires lead to the servo positioning sensor.
C These wires lead to the servo motor.
D The Hot or positive terminal for the motor.
E The negative terminal for the motor.
F The FET's (Field Effect Transistors)
G The positive terminal for the batteries located under the chassis.
H The negative terminal for the batteries located under the chassis.
I The crystal which determines which channel your Xmod will run on.

I do realize that most of the Xmods in the Builders section are now mine but hey send yours in with a decent description and I'll be glad to add it to this section! just click on my name below to contact me.
