Default Xfactor project DONE!!! LST updated... Nitro MT updated! (pics)

Long time no post, I have been on the road for a while and BUSY!

Anyways, here is the 'finalized' pics of my XTM Xfactor; Many of you will recognize it. For a quick refresher- XTM Al side plates, XTM Al Cantilevers, XTM Al Cantilever mounts, XTM Al axle mounts, XTM Al wheelie bar, XFactor 2 chassis, XFactor 2 shocks, LST ball ends all around, TMaxx sliding driveshafts, homebrew suspension shafts, homebrew steering linkage, skidplates removed/modded, homebrew upper rear link mount, homebrew front upper link mount/servo mount, 24.7 w/ACNCM cooling head, Hitec MG645, RE servo saver, 6v niMh reedy pack, Forward only conversion, savage axles, Hotbodies Fireball 7.7" tires w/Chopper wheels, custom throttle/break linkage, FUNCTIONAL cold air induction from Kyosho Giga Crusher, Proline 72 C10 Chevy body and a few more things here and there...





I made a few mods to the LST- had to go Lunsford Ti on the RPM a-arms after bending the crappy RPM stainless pieces. Forward only conversion, RPM head protector, RPM spur/clutchbell cover, Losi Al clutch shoes, sealed gas tank, Proline 23mm adapters, Proline 40 series wheels with Losi Super King Pin tires. I have a new body, just haven't painted it yet...





Finally, I finished the wife's Nitro MT Racer, hence the purple and pink colors! She really likes it. Evader shocks, Hardcore Racing turnbuckles, Hitec 605MG, Epic .18, Kimborough saver, pink fuel line!, Dynamite pipe and then of course the MIP CVDs, and proline bow ties from the factory. She wants a white truck body with a two tone pink lower... Whatever it takes, totally cool she is willing to try the hobby with me!

Looks good. Did you mod the wheels, or tires to fit the SKP's to the 40 series?

ORIGINAL: ThermalRD

No mods Thermal. Goes right on... I picked the setup idea from LSTCentral.com. you actually put the SKPs inner/outer beads on the FIRST lip of the wheels mount channel and glue it, then the tire forms itself very close to the face of the rim, and you put another bead of glue on the face of the rim to the tire. It brings the sidewall down and gives the setup very stiff sidewalls. The main reason I chose this setup was to have tires with the same OD as the stockers, but lighter and better performing.

Thanks guys! Appreciate the nice comments.

Benifur, here is a slightly older image of the XF without the shell on-
