Now I don't feel so bad I could never keep up with the guy! haha. It's about time the class is recognized with stronger trucks in the making and b/lipo taking off. Saving my pennies for a new truck this spring.

That would be a surprising move. But after seeing him race in person a couple times, I'm convinced he could wheel anything to a podium spot!

I am curious to see how with the push for longer mains at least, any changes we will see in how the vehicles are designed and the material they use.

Heck, I would like to see a truggy style wing on these in some way!

Brian Kinwald recently made the A at the Cactus with his prototype X Factory X - 60 truck.

Progress on the X Factory truck is going well - prototyping is near complete and we're starting to draw up stuff as a precursor to starting on molds. If everything continues well we're looking at a release date sometime in the late fall.

The RC Pro Series-Nitro is letting 2wd 1/10th scale electric stadium trucks run with the Gas Truck class this year. The mains will be 30 minutes long so run time is not a problem with a 7.5 brushless motor and an 8000 mah li-po.
