    Collar bones braking do suck. Same thing happened to my gopro when i had it in my merv and wrecked it HARD. Except mine didnt brake, and it only had a couple scratches. Kinda crappy how that happened to you.

    Are you running with the 2200kv motor in yours or is it the stock setup?

    No I have not but I think my problem is space. I'm going to try this a few more times before I give up and sell the car.

    You mean 34 pinion, right? That kinda explains the lifting then. Glad you got it figured out with venting the body. I have not seen either one of my XO-1's lift thier nose at high speed.

    No 36 delrin pinion. And I haven't tried the body venting yet it's just frustrating because I can easy hit 100mph just the front lifts then the sides open up and goes about 2 meters in the air doing 4-5 back flips :-/

    Oh lord, this things already geared to the moon. Lol! You might want to consider retarding your timing on the esc. That motor with that gearing is way too much on 6s if your not running 110 whats the point of roaching your motor? Thats a real hot setup. Ran mine awhile ago with the 2200kv motor 25/46 gearing on 6s. It was completely nuts after 70 mph, wheel spin nuts. You must have found good peramiters for that esc. Cheers!

    Thats just insane! Maybe droping the body down or adding some lead sticky weight to the front oughta shore it up.

    Are you running the high speed wing for the front there? Can't tell from the picture. Are those the XO-1 shocks with E-revo springs or are those the GTR's from the E-Revo? Forgot to mention im running the 8400 mah lipos from traxxas. They do add considerable weight to the chasis. And the weight may not be enough in the photo. Thats a 10 lb car more weight might be needed there. Im guessing your getting up to a faster KPH speed in a shorter distance with the rpm's of that motor and gearing, then the stock XO-1 at which point you may be testing a barier Traxxas felt was unstable...pushing the envelope is what this is all about isn't it? Your in the R&D stage of your mods, not sure on cutting the body for ventelation though. Heard people doing it, can't see how not hacking it up would destabilize driveability at high speed?

    Yah, YOLOer's right. You cant expect that thing to stay on the ground without it. Add the high speed bumper don't lower it yet and loose the weights on the front for the time being. You dont need them if downforce is being applied to front foil. Ease into the throttle too You've got insane gearing and too much torque.

    There's a thin channel that runs along the skirt there. The edge of the body needs to be in that channel, otherwise body will flare out on the side.

    Poor man xo1...I would say smart man. I really like when people are customizing stuff. Its all about making it your own. Some people say "dont over do it" I say "do it"....

    Its just sad that you broke some stuff, but hopefully you replaced them with stronger ones
