I saw the X-factor in a spy shot in R/C Car Action and I thought I
had to have one! As soon as they allowed you to pre-order, I
did. I have one of the first X-Factor trucks made. And
thats where my joy has ended. When I first got it, it
ripped itself apart on the second run. It sat for a year and I
fixed it back up. I've had nothing but problems with it and
have replaced most of the parts the company has changed on the new
My personal changes have been swapping the shocks with the
cantilever supports to make it a straight axle truck. This has
given it much more stability for driving. I also repositioned
the upper links to the old four-link style found on Clods a few
years ago. I have also changed tuned pipes.
I am not very satisfied with my X-factor. It seems to break
something new every day. And I haven't even been able to beet
on it yet.
