Can't say as I care one bit for it... Looks like an 80's parma body, and I HOPE the .46 isn't painted on the roof and is a decal instead.

Why the blackend windows? Hopefully it's a prototype "error", but if it comes like that, it'd be SUPER-LAME!!

And why is it riding so high?? I was wondering if the "cross-shocks" would interfere with the body, and from the looks of things, it might. But again, maybe it's just the way they set it up for the photo, not the way it has to be!

The more I look at it, the more I dislike it... Why didn't they just model it vaguely off of a full size truck like everyone else- I mean, the contoured rear window and white accent to boot?

Ok, sorry I will be quiet now... It is an impressive looking truck. I can't wait to see it. That will make a good basher body- you can put it on it's lid with no remorse.

Ah well... I am sure the Parma 1/8 scale Chevy body or Mammoth or MGT bodies will look good on it.

HOLY COW I HOPE THAT IS FAKE. IM SORRY I DISLIKE THAT. THEY SHOULD OF HAD THE BODY DESIGN LIKE THE MT2'S. The mt2 body IMO looks sweet and an oversized version of it would look great as well!

Some things grow on you. That body isn't one of them.

IMO, that body looks WAY to small and out of proportion for that kit, the looks of it makes me think of walmart or radio shack.

I have always liked a bit of realism in all kits I see, I don't understand why it is so hard for "SOME" companys to make bigger better bodys for there kits right from the start so we don't have to run out right away and buy a half decent shell that does not look like it came from the toddler section in a kiddys toy store.

I felt this way when I got the Xfactor too, I could not stand the stock body it came with and had to get a new body right away so my friends did not think I boughht a Tyco toy.

i saw it in a magazine yesterday at a bookstore, it looked insne, i think i like it***

3-speed all metal tranny
.46 under the hood
(should i go on or that's enough) ......
optional 4 wheel steering

bottom line...they took a savage 25 and tmaxx 2.5 and throw it into the washing machine....



the only reason i would buy it: the tranny and maybe even the .46

So, what took them soo long to get that ugly thing done? They may as well put daisies on it, and call it "Super Fun Factor" MT3. I hope the promotional video is better than that. Very ugly, un-impressed...

talk about not seing the forest because of the trees. who cares about the body? what is one of first things we all did when we got our rides? tossed out the stock body and got something better. besides, there's still time to top that baby off with something a little less.....FUGLY!


P.S. What name do you go by on the X-Factor forum Gator?

Now a lot of the RTR's have nice bodies... The GT-1 body on the Savage is AWESOME IMO... One of the coolest truck bodies...

About the forest for the trees comment, no one has discounted the truck at all yet in this thread. The current attitude is that the body is lacking and that's it. You even agree to that. So there is no argument here.

Oh, and I still have stock bodies on all of my rides...

I disagree. I dont think anybody really throws the stock bodies out first thing. For one main reason!!! Its gonna be a while before companies even support the new vehicles. There usually arent many options for other bodies on these giant trucks. So i think they should have put more time into that body. Alot more time...

I dunno, I guess my eyes arent working right or something. Cause I kinda like it. Yea, it could be nicer, but its really not bad. They way you guys are talking it sounds like they took a Yugo body and spliced a bed in to it.

i think the head lights are UGLY. it looks like the front is a caddy and the rear is something else. and that body is sitting higher than you can get a savage body up!! lol. it would look better if it was actually alittle closer to the truck. i kinda like the black windows but that body should come precut and ready to paint so you make it how you like it. i guess they made it to look "pimp" or "ghetto" with the black windows and big rims and the caddy head lights and i think euro tail lights.
