Here is a response from the Product Manager at Global-

It is a modified version of the regular one...

1. A lot of people weren't using reverse, so we made it an after-market option. This also simplifies the tranny a little. Any customers who wants it can still add it.
2. We included the Hitec Aggressor and a metal gear servo
3. We used the blue parts and changes the colors on the body.
4. We used the threaded shock bodies and changes all of the settings so it is softer.
5. It is just a tiny bit longer
6. We put the foam in the tires and used the newer style wheels
7. It uses the newer center gearbox with the screw-supported shafts.
8. Uses the cap screws and larger ball ends.
9. Tightened up some of the tolerances on some of the moving parts.
10. moved the switch

And all of this makes for a truck with more durability, a little more power and speed, with nicer accy's that used to only be aftermarket, and a lower every-day street price so more people can afford it.

For those of you who already own one, this is not really a replacement. For those who were considering it, we think we made some changes that favor what people have been asking from us in this vehicle.
I was on the fence about the X-Factor... I may have to get one now. That is when they go on sale at hobbypeople.
