X Factory SCX-60 Conversion kits

X Factory have announced that they will soon release the SCX-60 Conversion Kits. Two Kits will convert either the AE T4 or the SC10 to a mid-motor SCX-60. The new S.C. is based on the successful X Factory X-60 mid motor truck. These Kits will be limited production items because the chassis’ will be hand made one-at-a-time by Speedy Dad in Phoenix, Arizona.  X Factory ships two X-60 chassis’ to Speedy Dad; he cuts each into two parts using a special jig. One has a long front end and the other a long rear end. Dad then mixes special graphite glue and glues the two long parts together to make an SCX-60 chassis.  Another jig is used to insure the result is straight and true. After the chassis’ are together and dry, Dad uses his CNC mill to accurately cut three pieces of carbon fiber which are glued into the floor of the chassis and two more small pieces which go on the side rail. The Kits also come with a CNC machined rear bumper mount from the X Factory mill. The T4 Conversion Kit will contain a J Concepts “Truth” short course body and the SC bumpers and nerf bars, so it will be priced more than the SC10 Conversion Kit. The SC10 Kit will contain no body because the customer can re-use his existing SC10 body and the customer already has the bumpers and nerf bars.
