Latest from X Factory:
X Factory announces a new partnership with Probst Motorsports of New Lenox, Illinois. X Factory will sell replicas of the #9 E3 Spark Plugs Lucas Oil Pro-2 short course truck. The Kit will contain an SCX – 60 Conversion Kit with a professionally painted Pro-Line Silverado body that exactly matches the real E3 #9 and a huge die-cut decal sheet from BC1 Graphics, graphics supplier to the real #9 truck, to complete the perfect replica.
To celebrate the new partnership, Probst Motorsports will bring the #9 E3 Lucas Oil truck to the ROAR National Championship race in Joliet, Ill. for at least three days of the race! Pro driver Kevin Probst, a 35-year veteran of the short course truck circuit with over 200 wins to his credit, will attend the ROAR race for a day in person to sign autographs and meet the R/C drivers.
At all the Lucas Oil Off-Road Series races, the drivers hold an R/C S.C. truck race in the pits. Kevin Probst has been using an SCX – 60 during the 2010 season. The included photo of the R/C truck on the hood of the real truck is NOT PhotoShopped – it was taken in the parking lot as the real truck was being loaded into the trailer. Several SCX – 60s will contest the ROAR Championship, including a Probst Special Edition in the hands of Kevin Probst’s nephew, Jon Probst.
The new trucks will be available at selected fine hobby stores and on the X Factory web site following the ROAR race.
