The short, laydown shocks worked well at Trackside, but he really struggled with them at other tracks; the biggest difficulty was at Columbus. Obviously, the truck needs to work well at all tracks, so Brian's adjusted the set-up to be easier to adjust, dial-in, and drive.

Paul- Can you give us any kind of indication on the progress of the X-60 project? I don't need a release date, because I know you can't commit to those kinds of things yet, but it would be interesting to know how far along you guys are with the truck. (You are involved with the design of the truck right? I can't remember who all is at the Xfactory factory now)

I raced with Paul this weekend in Nashville, Tn and he said the truck would most likely be available this fall. I got to put my hands on a prototype and it is definitely a nice piece. Thanks go out to him for lending me a hand on my 19 turn.

Hey everyone - thanks for the kind words. I should have answered the "X - 60 status" questions a few days ago, but got busy and all.

The X - 60 is moving right along. We're having a little trouble getting some prototype rear arms made, but its unrelated to the arms themselves. We've pretty well settled on some of the other prototype kind of stuff, such as chassis length and the rear shocktower. Also, the revised toe-in bars are holding up much better than the original ones did on the truck, so that's good.

So the truck is definitely coming along; we'll get these prototype arms made up and make sure all that works and then start drawing stuff up!
