Default Xfactor 2 for a newbie to nitro

Hey all

I have been running electric trucks for a while and am anxious to get a nitro monster truck to thrash around mostly in the backyard. I have had my eye on the Xfactor 2.....is this gonna be ok for someone new to nitro trucks???

Thanks for any input

Depends what you're using it for? Rock climbing, racing, general bashing?
The Savage is a tough SOB, and will take everything you can throw at it. If you're partial to XTM, the Mammoth is a great truck...just be prepared to strenghten the shock towers or get a rollcage. If you can wait until June/July, you will have 2 more choices which look pretty promising...the Losi LST and Traxxas Revo. Do a search to find out about them.

the x-factor 2 is a great truck but it mainly for only rock crawling, not racing.
