Traxxas XO-1 Announced!

The Traxxas XO-1 has finally been announced! That’s XO as in XOhh. Pretty sure thats not the Traxxas X0-1 As in X Zero. Also it’s not XO1. Pretty sure they want that dash.

It’s an on-road vehicle that Traxxas is claiming will do 100+ MPH with two 3S 5000 packs! It also has a App for the iPhone with telemetry for the newly designed TQi radio with docking base.

They are stressing experts only at these speeds! It won’t do the 100+mph without the iPhone app installed.

Comes with the NEW Castle Creations Mamba Monster Extreme Speed Control.
Special 100+mph belted rubber tires.

I’m guessing we will be fighting to see who does the Traxxas XO-1 review! hahah

Random Big Squid RC Comments..
Cubby: Wants to see 10 newbs in a parking lot, and see how many calls to 911 happen.
Brian: I want those working headlights, please please please let those work.
Brian: For the record, we totally had the product number correct weeks ago! 6407 🙂
Brian: 1/7 scale? Really? NOW I’m in!
Cubby: Still skeptical at 100mph for a person on the street. Also does not like having to ‘unlock’ top speeds.
