I was lucky enough to see and speak to the people at TRAXXAS about the new addition to there family. The radio is amazing and so is the car. The car was sitting on a AWD Dyno Roller. With the car on the dyno, they were able to display all the functions of the vehicle and the radio. All I can say is WOW. I will post pictures up after I fix my computer.
The XO-1 was also on display for people to look at and touch. I was able to pick it up and look at the 3 years of work it took to build this car. I was also informed that the vehicles ride height drops as the speed increases. To add to that, I was told it drops enough to were it is very stable at high speed. The motor is huge when you compare it to most other motors.
The car is still scheduled to be released on time. I think the demand for the car will keep most of us waiting due to the high demand.
I did ask why the unique scale size. I was told that this was the only way to have the car built. The scale they chose is with everything fit snug as a perfect fit - which was their goal.
I almost forgot to mention, if you like the radio so much - you will be able to own one. Rumor has it that there will be a TRAXXAS Radio Trade IN. You will receive $100 credit towards the purchase of a new radio.
