right now i have an old backtrail x2 frame. im looking to get a lighter street frame. i really like the fit s3 aitken. its 14mm dropout so i know im ok with that. im just unsure about the BB. my haro is an american bb and 11.5" bb height. but the fit frame is a mid bb with 11.8" bb height. how can i make this work?

get a new bottom bracket. they are not very expensive. you will also need to get a new headset.
the s3 frame will have very different angles to your x2.
they are very nice frames though.

For a bb, this may suit you better. http://www.danscomp.com/456040.php?cat=PARTS

If your current BB is sealed you can just press the bearings into the frame without the cups, and just get the Kink headset.
