Default My x-factor revamp.

I bought it 8 years ago as a 100% stock brand new, XTM X-Factor Nitro Monster Truck. This is probably the 5th or 6th time that it has been completely torn down and rebuilt. I have ditched the nitro motor for 2 Novak 55t motors, and a Novak Superduty ESC. Dual 6 cell cheapo Radio Shack batteries. Somewhere along the line I extended it to about 18"wheelbase and ditched the cantilevers, and replaced the stock driveshafts with t-maxx shafts. This time I decided to really build it right, I am building a complete new frame, 5 link suspension, 16" wheelbase, maximiser beadlocks, locked diffs, and more ground clearance. It is not a low CG, high tech crawler like alot of people have, but it suits me and my driving style the way it is, and it is huge, which is always good in my book.

Looks good, though I can see you've got a bunch of frame flex. Any crossmembers planned?

I've got 2 X-factors myself - one I'm hoping to find the time to do a tube frame for, the other one is staying stock. Maybe.
