Default XFactory SCX-60!

This short course truck is #3 in existance. The chassis and rear bumper mount were custom fabricated by one of my teammates, Chris Kreig. We really worked overtime to get this build done in time for Adam Joiner's 2009 "Corr Cross" and were excited to compete with it, but the rain won again. I dubbed the truck SCX-60, and it includes JConcepts rubber, Losi suspension, Novak GTB/10.5 power, Spektrum electronics, Thunder Power 5000mah/40c lipo juice, MIP cvd's, and of course...ALOT of XFactory candy. Enjoy!

I would buy one of these right now. I have a slash and it cant compete with the sc10's so I bought an sc10. Dont care that much for it, seemed like a lot of set up. The losi sct looks ok but I'm not sold on that yet either, the only thing I like is the mid motor. I have never owned HPI so i dont know about the blitz. I guess what i want is a race sct, and from these 2 pics this one looks legit. I also read that x-factory has no plans of putting a sct into production.....is this true?

Nah they should make a XXX-SCT but make it a straight up converted xxx-t.
(or a conversion for us losi guys with a backup car lying around.)

All a XXX-T needs is a longer chassis and bumper/bodymounts, I got plenty I could convert. DT trans optional.



Now that the pics are up I'm impressed that thing looks really nice!.....and FAST!!

I've held the other truck like this (mikes) and who ever glued up the chassis did such a good job you almost cant tell that it's not factory, you'd have too see one up close to see what I mean.

These trucks look great! I have a few Losi DT I should convert.
What are you using for the glue?
I think I have my next project

Great job!
