    RE: Traxxas's Nov. 30 release.

    See how the name is XO-1. Meaning eXperts Only number one. I am thinking that there is going to be more. like XO-2 and XO-3.

    RE: Traxxas's Nov. 30 release.

    I think you're right. I think there will be other classes in the XO series eventually. Imagine a slightly oversized Revo that could take 8S. [&:]

    More electric junk. Surprise surprise. At least trx's radios look better.
    Electric is the bees knees today man. nitro is slowly fading out of the picture. 100mph tho? i'll believe it when i see the radar gun. it looks sleek though. nicely engineered.
    It's the bees knees for those that want to drop $1100 on the car, plus whatever for a set of lipos and a charger, plus an iPhone or iPod touch, plus whatever else you really need to get those speeds. Not to mention, being an onroad, you have limited running space unless you have a vacant mall parking lot to run on.

    I'm sure it will sell, but IMO, it's a swing and a miss for what is realistic.

    This is all very true. I wouldn't recommend buying it uness you atleast 1) have the money, and 2) the ipod/iphone. without the ipod/iphone, you wont get too 100mph, so at that point i would say the car should only sell for probably $600. It comes with the lipo batteries tough, not sure about a charger. Don't get me wrong, my first rc was a traxxas. But i would never buy this. Watking Glen Raceway is the only closest track But if anyone wants to spend this kind of money on this, be my guest. But a vxl traxxas on a 3s lipo will easilykeep right up with it no problem for a third of the price.

    RE: Traxxas's Nov. 30 release.

    Do you figure there will be a pc and/or android app after a while? I can't imagine them purposely limiting themselves to only iphone/ipod users. Not that I am really in the market for a 600 to 1100 rc . . .

    seeing it uses an iPhone dock connector on the radio itself unless you physically, and software wise hack the living crap out of your android device no way in hell.

    BTW its now $100 more last I looked on tower they raised it to $1199

    RE: Traxxas's Nov. 30 release.

    I STILL want to know why they bothered with the damn foam bumper.... I can only see it negatively affecting the aerodynamics of the front end. Its not like normal cars where its gonna do a damn thing. Seriously am I the only person who thinks its stupid to even bother putting it on, or making a space for it? Specially since the chassis extends past it in every pic

    hmm for that shouldn't it be a custom shape that mimics the body? it looks like a standard foam bumper. Also from the pics it looks like the body meets the front of the chassis almost perfectly where as the foam bumper looks a bit back. Might be right just hard to tell from what is shown

    RE: Traxxas's Nov. 30 release.

    I think the phone thing is more a deal with Apple than anything else. IT would be trivial to extend that functionality to android, as well as PC via USB cord for people who don't have a smartphone at all. Can't knock TRX for knowing their fanbase though, I reckon the majority of their customers have iOS devices.


    I imagine it's pretty trivial to pop a different ESC on there though. What I'd like to see is a nitro conversion, if the drivetrain can handle a BL motor capable of 100MPH it can handle a big block, and honest to god I'll give 30MPH up in exchange for that sweet 40,000RPM song.

    +10 on that. Notice they call the "stock motor" a "Big Block BL motor"? I wonder if this is whats supposed to fill the shoes of what would-be a Big Block glow engine.

    Ipod touches are not that expensive...... If you can't afford one then this isn't the car for you.

    I would think it would have to be bigger than that. a .50 is roughly 8cc and .61 is about 10cc. I would think a 1/7th scale car would use something in the realm of 15-20cc (.90-1.20)

    I think the 1/5th scale baja has a 26cc stock which is what... 1.4 cu. in. or so.. So yeah.. by scale, I would think a .75 or .90 would be it. But I dont care to learn what electric motor size correlates to what glow/gas engine it would replace since I doubt they will release this car with a internal combustion engine. I will say the CC1717 is a big motor though.

    Well the guessing is over (obviously) for what Traxxas was planning, but how about the guessing on first parts to be on the upgrade market?


    My guess:

    Some form of shock absorbing super bumper from integy,

    A programming card or device loaded with just the app you need for around $150, for less tech-advanced users, or those of us who refuse to buy an Iphone (or any smart phone), with profit sharing going directly to Apple [&:]
