X-Factory X-60 almost in production

X Factory have announced that the X-60, an all-new mid-motor Conversion Kit for the AE T4 is almost ready for final testing. As you can see from the photos, the mold for the chassis is almost finished and their mold shop says the tool will be finished this weekend, and the first production prototypes will be made. All the X-Team drivers will begin testing molded chassis’ in the next 4-10 days depending on shipping times, with results forwarded to the home office in northwest Ohio by October 20.  If all is well, full production of graphite chassis’ will begin immediately. The rear control arms are finished, and full production graphite arms will be shipped to X Factory around Oct. 10th. The Team will be using production prototype rear shock towers and battery straps about the end of next week, so those items should be able to go into production on the 20th also. Work has also begun on the body mold, and they hope to have the prototype bodies about Oct 20 for photos and track testing. If everything fits, looks good, and the downforce is correct, that part can go immediately into production too.
