Default MAD FORCE OR X-FACTOR

I need to decide whether or not to buy the Kyosho Mad Force or XTM X-Factor. I like both of them equally. Can anyone push me in a direction. Anything will be helpful, thanks.

let me be the first (in this thread) to say that both of these trucks are good.... nothing i can say will make one better than the other...

that being said, what are you gonna use your truck for? rock crawling, bashing, etc...


mad force has more speed and is really fun to bash with.... i dont think its much of a racer though... its hard to keep stable... cant jump well either...

i have no clue about the xfactor, but from what i know, its not that fast... instead, it is really torqy... it wheelies well (ive seen videos), its a crawler, so its got massive articulation but its nitro... so im not sure how well it can crawl... i dont know about the xf's fun factor, but it looks like a good basher too....

Mainly bashing. Rock crawling wherever I can. Curb jumping. Just all around bashing. I am guessing the Mad Force is the better choice?

Acctually stock vs. stock madforce beat the x-factor in crawling due to the X's sucky tires.

OMG u must be a concrete thinker. With that lighting it appears to look like wood. Either way, that is a pretty ghetto truck.

yeah its got lots of speed, no its not much of a racer it only beat a savage, mamoth, tmaxx, tnx, gs sut, ofna titan twin, and team associated monster gt in a race read it in Car Action mag and i also seen a movie once[img][/img]. And i dont no what u mean that its not a good jumper if u mean breaks easy than ur wrong its one of the most durable trucks out there and if u mean not good air control than ur wrong u can keep it straight or flip it in the air like nothing, and if u mean it dont land well than, well it does bounce even off small jumps but some new sprins its really good at landing.

dgmorr29:i think u should really get the mad force its a great truck i have one and its awsome but i havent really got it goen yet not all the way broken in. the x factor is a good truck but the mad force is all around better hope i helped out wit ur pick

I though it was wood at first too, but after looking harder it does appear to be made of metal, either aluminum or galvinized steel. I don't see any wood. It's kinda ghetto, but it's home-made, I don't think it looks too bad, but it needs some paint.


What movie are you talking about that had all those r/c's in it?

Thanks for the help. I have chosen the Mad Force! What is the first upgrade I should do? I am also getting it with a 4-link kit as part of the deal.
