The X Factory X-60CF is every bit as good as the Centro indoors, and every bit as good as a T4.x outdoors. This is my 5th stadium truck over the years and by far my favorite. The biggest thing the X Factory truck has over the Centro (aside from being readily available for purchase) is support, both in parts and setup. Another big plus (to me) is that it is 100% American made. The kit and parts are readily available through amain.com and xfactoryrc.com, so you never have to wait on things to come in stock for more than a few days. The truck performs great right out of the box, but the body that is included is not very durable. I would recommend running any body for the AE GT2 as it looks better (IMO) and will last much longer.
Assuming it can run saddles, it will run square packs? Have a few I bought for my B5M before deciding on sticking with shorties.

This is where I purchased mine from. Figured while I was there I would grab 2. Just in case at some point I need a spare part. I ordered the aluminum rear tower brace and rear tower from JConcepts. http://www.cmldistribution.co.uk/cml...tId=0000008595

I am hopefully that this means the T5M won't be far behind.

yep expensive, I feel like they're doing what they did last time and hopefully the T5/M is right around the corner. Although the centro is still a great car and many fast guys here locally run them in stock class

My try at a mid motor T4, we'll call it a T5M!

Will try flat arms instead of gullwings
