Latest from X Factory:

X Factory drivers took home the top prize in mod short course and mod stadium truck at Saturday’s Michigan Indoor R/C Open held at DirtBurners R/C in Livonia, Mich, a suburb of Detroit. Even though it snowed outside most of the day on April 2nd (!) racing was hot inside with over 100 entries.

In mod short course, X Factory’s Paul Sinclair started second on the grid, passed into the lead in the second corner of the flowing clay track, and never looked back. The TQ then made a couple mistakes while Sinclair motored off. Later in the race, with the TQ truck charging hard it became interesting near the end, but Sinclair kept his SCX – 61 glued to the line turning a succession of fast laps to finish about three seconds in front.

In mod truck, it was privateer Russ Bryant driving the Infinity T5M on pole for the A main. Russ fell back as the race started but worked his way into contention and, with two laps to go, passed into the lead, holding on until the end. The last five laps were a great three-way battle, and X Factory congratulates Russ on the win.

In a post-race interview, Russ said, “I got my first Infinity chassis for my short course and the difference was so great I had to get Infinities for my buggy and truck. This race was very tight, and my Infinity chassis made all the difference. I had the truck dialed in perfectly.”
