We expect to have the first full production run of the X - 5 Conversion kit on Monday. If all goes well, we will be shipping kits on Wednesday June 30. We will leave for the Hot Rod Hobby Shoot-Out on Friday morning.
If you want an X - 5 for the Shoot-Out or the Stock Nats, order now. If you wait to order, we can not ship until we return from California, about July 15th.
We have just now returned from extensive testing of the second-generation X - 5 at an undisclosed location. Two travel-team drivers drove the car.
Lap time were impressive. We ran a dozen battery packs. The track had a major quad jump, and no X - 5 parts broke. There were a number of major crashes, and parts broke on three of them. Two front control arms and a rear pivot block -- all Losi parts.
Test session info will probably be posted at www.4wdrc.com
