After seeing one run with a 17.5 I don't think this is a stock class car, just too heavy. I am considering selling mine, just not ready to step up to mod. It is still new in the box, I have not even opened any of the bags. I paid $288.90 for it with tax. PM me if you are intrested, I will not take less then $288.90 plus shipping.

I talked to a friend who ran the X-Factory car for a long time. Asked him his opinion on how to build it. He said he chased set up forever and never really got it and that I should build rear motor first, so I will. 3 gear.

Anyone else enjoying the build as much as me? Taking my sweet time with it, studying every part before it gets bolted in. So far so good, just minor sanding where the parts come of their trees and some very minor flashing removal with a razor. The servo mount is super dialed- very simple and efficient with minimal hardware.

This is not the easiest body to paint. I painted this one for a fellow racer.

Looks great! I was looking at all the lines on it before I dropped it off to the painter and was sure glad he was doing it...

First run with the car last night at my local club. Track was high grip carpet with plenty of jumps and quite technical. Car was so easy to drive, was running mid motor 4 gear. Car was on kit setup, but changed the rear springs to dark green to reduce the bodyroll and weight transfer on power.

Car was driven by some other drivers, who own 22's, cougars, rb5's, akula 22's. All were very impressed with the car, one so much he gas just bought a 210!
