man those look awsome , really would love to build one int he 360mm version , how does the 325mm hold up with the plastic drive shafts . Did you just mount them to xo-1 diffs ? man trying to figure out how you made the 325mm and 360 lolol
btw love that ferrari body , think im going to order it for my XO-1 . I had ordered the lambo body and it looked beatiful almost fit without any mods whatsoever . Didnt get the ferrari because it came prepainted red and really would love in a black or white color but actually seeing one on there now . I love how it looks .
great job man , very good job !!!

The plastic shafts hold up OK since this car is primarily run in the rain (notice the "E" compound GRP's) I am running a 3S on a Losi 2800 in it for now, once it dries up around here I will go 2650 in it and 4S - that'll need some Teknos or XO-1 shafts.

For the shorter wheelbase, I cut the chassis down and re-drilled the holes for the front bulkhead, along with a bunch of others that had to be relocated.

Unfortunately, the Ofna bodies are all gone, unless they do another run and HPI decides to sell them we are screwed - I bought 2 of the Ferrari bodies and a 911 and I couldn't get any more.

The 1/7 has the big block now but thinking of doing something that will handle more cells...

Yes those Inferno GT bodies are worth a mint - cannot be found anywhere, next time I am in Japan I am going to scour the hobby shops -

I have a few inferno GT2 (360MM) bodies though and they are still in print - C6R, McLaren, Audi R8.

simply amazing, i like that you can modded a xo-1 chassis to fit other short wheelbase body. i was thinking of doing this before but never had the guts to do it so i choose the rally 1/10 lol.
thanks for sharing us your idea, i bet ppl at the track thinking you have a DM-1 or inferno under that corvette lol.

Yes, I frequently get guys coming up and saying where did you get the Inferno GT2!! I had the GT2 and I think the 360mm XO-1 might just be better - at least I can get lots of parts easily!

I also hated that there are no bodies for the XO-1 really - so I made the car fit the available bodies - my next thing to try is a SC body on the 235mm XO-1...

i really like that 360mm i might give it a go this time lol. where did you find this body from cause i could'nt find the corvette anymore. hopefully traxxas will release a new body design and give us more choices.

one last Q's. what center shaft did you use on the 360mm?
