Where did you get the Kyosho truck shocks?

Our first out door race was this weekend and the track was way loose. I chose not to run my X-60 because of the lack of practice. There were to many nitro cars to out on the track to get a good setup run in.

So I need some help setting up for a Loamy track that could be dry or wet depending on when they water. I am running the kit set up for AE shocks. I think the first problem I had was not having the right tires, all I had was hole shots. I think I needed goosebumps! With the set up I had any time I hit the throttle it would just spin out and this is with a 13.5.

There are lots of X Factory Dealers all over the world. Check the contact page of www.2wdrc.com

As to price, we sell our products at the lowest possible price and still earn a profit. Believe it or not, "profit" is not a 4-letter word. It is essential to any business, large or small.

X Factory is the smallest R/C manufacturer we know of that markets world-wide. As such, our production volumes are quite low, so cost/part is high. We make the very highest quality parts in R/C and will not compromise quality to reduce cost. We are a racing company making race cars for racers.

Check the latest parts, made in China, from some of our competitors. The primary problem we have at X Factory is that the X Factory parts on our cars seem never to break and we don't sell many as parts as we should. I checked the Team drivers at the Nats: Not a single broken X Factory part all week.
