    i have messed with big dyno before with cars but if an rc car goes 106 on a dyno with no air pushing on it in any direction what makes you thing it will go any faster or are you talking about modded

    O.O that's nuts. Wind resistance does have to be factored in though.

    smart dynos can add resistance to the drums to "fake" wind resistance. not saying thats the case here but it is possible.

    That is true. But for demo testing, they probably want to show its all out speed.

    There must be SOME calculation for wind resistance. If this thing is advertised to go over 100mph, it will go over 100mph. There's no way that wind resistance and all of the other factors that go into play at those speeds would only decrease the top speed by 6mph IMO.

    im not saying it wont do 100mph, but alot of speculation has said number like 110 and higher. most dyno resistance is based on weight of the car so the dyno drum is either weighted or has a brake to simulate weight .also because their trying to figure out hp and tq not how fast it will go. correction factor dont have anything to do with wind resistance or the drag from down force .

    That's not a dyno, it's just a set of rollers. That car was actually speed-limited so it wouldn't spool up too much over 100mph. Since there was no real load, it could have gone "faster," but we didn't want to show the XO-1 hitting speeds you couldn't actually hit on a track. Fastest I've personally seen an XO-1 go is 113mph, and that was just a making passes with the out-of-the-box "unlocked" setup. No idea how fast it would go geared for maximum speed with a "who cares if it thermals in one run" setup, but I would think 120mph is possible.

    The Brazilians get their GT's at 100+mph. I don't see why the X0 couldn't do the same thing.

    Wow! Thanks for the clarification. 113 is insane. How many runs can you do like that before it thermals?

    The best part about that clip is the sound!! The sound in the Daytona ad really grabs my attention as well.

    Awesome.
    Well, that surely nailed some of the disbelieving speed "Rustler" fanboys coffin.
    The XO-1 will rule :-)
    Looking forward to watch TheJang's review, now that he's (as the first) got the box delivered.

    I could imagine the insane markups at LHS when they start getting them in. I see $1600 easy. My LHS is charging $475 for the Raptor 2wd Slash.
