For 25 years well known remote control car manufacturer, Traxxas can now boast with the XO-1, an all-wheel-drive electric RC Car. Traxxas XO-1 is able to hit speeds of more than 100 mph with the aid of a new iOS app, which makes it world’s fastest remote control car for big boys. This pre-assembled car is capable of going from zero to 60 in 2.3 seconds, and from zero to 100 in just 4.92 seconds.
The XO-1 is not a toy and is intended for use by experts only, says Traxxas, who warns that the XO-1 carries a risk of fire, injury or death!
This amazing top speed is possible due to a 1,650 Kv Traxxas Big Block Brushless electric motor, powered by two rechargeable 3-cell, 5,000 mAh lithium-polymer battery packs. The car is controlled by the new Traxxas TQi radio system and it requires the Traxxas Link app for iOS. Just dock your iPhone or iPod touch into the base of the device and that allows you to use your mobile device as a virtual dashboard and fine-tuned control system. Data on speed, battery voltage, RPM, and temperature are beamed from the car and displayed in the app in real time, while a series of sliders let you adjust steering sensitivity, throttle trim, and a bevy of other options. Customized profiles can be saved for use with different vehicles or driving environments.
The XO-1 will be available for purchase on December 30th at a suggested retail price of $1,100 in a variety of shades such as red and black to choose from. The Traxxas Link app coming to the App Store on the December 20th. [Traxxas]
