Exclusive First pic: X-Factory X-60 body

There have been many photos of the upcoming X-60 from X Factory but so far they have all featured old GT2 bodies. We’ve seen almost everything on the truck itself but nothing of the new body, which has been promised a design like nothing seen before. X-Factory have been keeping the prototype bodies tightly under wraps so we began contacting them several times a day, sometimes by phone, sometimes by e-mail but we kept being told there was nothing to report until finally Chazz relented, sending us this photo. He said:

Our drivers are still arguing over the body design. I emphasize function over form, and I say, ‘Close the hole for greater downforce.’ But Brian Kinwald replies, ‘Close it and there will be too much downforce. Besides, this is waaay cool.’ So X Factory themselves still have not decided. All the Team drivers do like the roof air scoop to help with ECS/motor temps.

Alexander Valente suggested they post this pic and let people comment on their forum at www.2wdrc.com but it looks like we’ve beaten them to it.
