Traxxas® is The Fastest Name in Radio Control®. For over 25 years, we have made it our mission to innovate. To lead. To find the next level of performance and capability. We are driven by a passion for speed and power, and now Traxxas has redefined the meaning of both. State-of-the-art technology. Cutting edge design. A total focus on quality and precision. All have been distilled into one vehicle that could only come from Traxxas. 0-60 in 2.3 seconds. 0-100 in 4.92 seconds. Top speed over 100mph! Simply put, the XO-1 is the world's fastest Ready-To-Race® radio controlled supercar.
The Next Generation of Traxxas 2.4GHz Control
Traxxas' XO-1 is equipped with the world's most advanced Ready-To-Race® radio system. The all-new Traxxas® TQi™ radio system with Docking Base turns your iPhone® or iPod touch® into a powerful tuning tool. The device display combines with the Traxxas Link™ App to deliver an intuitive, high-definition, full-color graphical user interface that optimizes your radio system for ultimate vehicle control. Automatic model recognition instantly recalls your settings for up to 30 Traxxas Link-enabled models—just switch on and drive. This powerful App gives you complete control over the operation and tuning of the Traxxas XO-1 with an intuitive, high definition graphical user interface. Once you have created the perfect control settings for your model, you can save them as a profile that you can restore later, use on another model, or share with friends. Traxxas Link telemetry sensors transmit real-time data including speed, RPM, temperature, and battery voltage with stunning visuals.
High performance must come with high durability. Traxxas delivers with a robust shaft-driven AWD (all-wheel drive) system proven in our most powerful vehicles and enhanced with new features for the XO-1. Steel-gear, E-Revo-spec differentials feature reinforcing support bars to increase horsepower handling capability. The extruded aluminum center driveshaft engages the front and rear gearboxes directly, so there are no dogbones or drive cups to wobble or wear. New, telescoping steel-spline (SS) driveshafts with dual CV joints engage the wheels with track-tested, splined 17mm hex hubs. New fine pitch splined steel telescoping driveshafts handle 50% more torque than conventional shafts. Oversized 6X12mm ball bearings spin efficiently at high rpm, run after blistering run
Ready-To-Race with Included Power Cell LiPos
"100+mph, right out of the box." That was the goal for the Traxxas XO-1, and Traxxas delivers with everything you need to hit triple digits—including a pair of Power Cell 3S LiPo batteries. Built with custom Traxxas cells and engineered specifically for the high power demands of Traxxas vehicles, Power Cell LiPo packs are fully equipped with Traxxas High Current connectors, Maxx Cable 12-gauge wire, and standard JST/XH balance plugs for long cycle life, maximum run time, and track-shredding punch.

my first thought:
I wonder how it would handle off-road with some suspension mods...
the A-arms look really long for an on-road car!
they almost look like... rustler/stampede 2WD rear arms?
it's wayy to much for me to ever want to try and adapt it
it's cool and all, but not all of us have an oval raceway to drive on, and not all of us have Iphones/Itouches to take advantage of the radio telemetry...

Well other than the fact that the chassis looks like a Nikko branded toy from wal mart, the arms and hubs look extremely familiar to rustler arms, and that they are trying to create yet another scale (7th scale? Really?, couldn't they call it 8th and get it over with?), and making you pay extra for an app that "enables" the 100mph+ speeds, which also turns away android users(for now)....
That body is hawt.
Sorry if it sounds a bit harsh, i have nothing against traxxas, but I had to do it
Motor/esc just looks like the average 8th scale combo from castle, maybe pumped up a bit to handle speed runs over and over again
Motor looks like it could be a 1717 neu, but I doubt it.
