    I can tell you exactly how to prevent blow-overs: Run your car without the body. It sticks to the ground exponentially better without the body (runs a little cooler, too). I consider this to be a...

    I would recommend splicing the wires as opposed to soldering on the tiny board. I've replaced several motors on my QR-1's successfully this way. You can use a little liquid electric tape to...

    I've been using Integy aluminum arms and like them a lot. Less flex than stock for sure.

    Nooooooo! You do NOT want to glue those belted tires yourself. I highly recommend buying pre-glueds when it comes to XO-1 tires. The little money you save will not be worth it, those tires have no...

    I would go with Traxxas lipos for sure. Many people don't know this, but they replace them for 1/2 price for life. I ran my rustler into a curb at 60 mph and smashed a week-old 8400 mah and they...

    Yes, unplug the ESC wire from the receiver and plug it into the adapter. I split my ESC wire and coupled it so I don't have to get into the receiver box every time.

    I run Integy aluminum arms (slash/rustler) on the rear (haven't had to replace the fronts yet, but will put aluminums there too). They're really not much stronger than the plastic stock arms, and...

    Ducati,

    Yes, like a step-up program. They upgraded me to an XL2 for 50% of retail plus shipping ($175 + $5). Considering you can get these online for ~~$230, I did save a little cash but not...

    I've had two ESC's fail. Castle did replace both.

    The first failed in the middle of a speed run. If I hadn't been pointed at a grass field, things could have gotten real ugly.

    jhabr,

    Did your ESC fail by chance?

    I ask because I've had two of them fail so far, and it would be interesting to hear if others are having the same issue.

    I'll be putting an XL2 in mine...

    I'm not sure that back flip could have been more perfect. 10/10 indeed, PBO. Sweet video!

    I know your pain, Wheelie. All too well. Best of luck getting her back on the road.
  14. Not a very good experience so far - the cat's coming of the bag

    MY ESC failed (completely) the second week I owned my XO-1. Died in the middle of a speed run, leaving me with no brakes at 70+mph. It is now sitting on a shelf while I wait for a new one from...

    I would have to agree with you, Double G. I have had incredibly bad luck with Integy upgrades. They look great, but are functionally inferior to stock parts in almost every instance. I've...

    Sure ponie:

    5437 - Orange (front)
    5439 - Gold (rear)

    I'm not sure if this is the best combination or not, and I plan on experimenting with some different springs.

    I do think it made an...

    I think the stock springs are a little soft. I put the stock springs (orange and gold) from my E-Revo on my XO-1, and it seems to have made a big difference. I can keep the car lower without it...
