We hope for early spring 2013. It will be a complete Kit -- everything but wheels, tires, and lubricants.

I hope a bit sooner since by then most of us would have started with the new outdoor season.

I'm afraid spring 2013 is the very earliest we could possibly do. Later is more like it. We are going as fast as other commitments will allow -- gotta keep production and sales going while developing the new car.

Hey chazz.

Some kind of teaser pic would be much appreciated.
There are some interesting new 4wd on their way like Xray, Losi and
perhaps Kyosho. JQ have a car all finished on the drawing board so my point is to let people see some teasers and maybe that could help them decide what to run for when the next outdoors season begins.

I for one is patiently waiting for a release of Tamiya 511 but if that does not happen I will go with the new Xray or....x7 if I know a little more about it.

There are quite a few action and close up shots of Ellis X7 all over the forum in various race reports etc, this is not a million miles away from what a production car will be if you just want "teasers", but there are none detialing the inside just yet I'm afraid.....

dont make me laugh X7 body off we cant even get body on shots or anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

be nice 2 get some news as its been quite for a long time

how about updating the X6 cars as they r starting to fall away from the other kits on the market!!!! and the track!!

we just dont get any news on anything

im sick of x factory working only on short course trucks come on Paul and chazz how about some new bits to keep the cars up the top end of the racing
not happy with a car that's getting long in the tooth how about a new X6 CF kit like the truck ......
if no ongoing developments r coming out then i will after 4 years racing these kits drop them as the cars r getting too old in the chassis area

a x6cf won't happen. They've already tried it and its too stiff. They're still working hard on the x7 so I wouldn't expect anything major for the x6 until th 4wd is out and things have slowed down after the rush for the new kit, but I do thing it would be cool to see a narrow alloy chassis with plastic wings like the new trend is, just to make it look new, although thats simply not there style.

I notice that Ellis has a dex410 set up posted on petit rc. I also notice he is now a "supported" driver from xfactory uk rather than a "team" driver.

Does this mean the X7 has hit a problem as Ellis was using some of last winter and all summer?

Lots of interesting gossip and assumptions on this thread recently some true others not, keep your eyes open for early 2013 and some great new things from X-Factory. All I can assure is that Paul and Chazz are far from standing still and VERY busy working on new things and not just SC trucks I will add!!

As for body on shots of the X7 there are plenty available on here to look at, if people want direction to them then let me know.... (there is one right as the main picture of our XFactory UK facebook page for starters kindly supplied by Jimmy.)

Last big win for the X6 Sq, depends what we call big I guess, Belgium GP big enough in July? Elvo winning the Belgium title and he and Stefan dominating the BeNeLux series, it just depends on what we call big I guess.......... but not even ALL of the BIG manufacturers have "BIG" wins under thier belt recently let alone the smallest brand out there....

I think if he has gone to TD I think they would have announced that, as Darren says - 2013.. The only reason I can think is due to no announcement is contractual reasons 1/1/13?

With other exciting new projects in the pipeline, we now anticipate (and hope) the X7 wil be along in the second half of this coming year (2013).... I have no more info than that at present that I can (or am allowed) to share sadly.
