    bringit's Kershaw Designs' XO-1 Build

    I will post some pictures of my build and the repair of a few broken plastic parts along the way. This is my first R/C car so it might take awhile to get this thing together. Any tips to get it apart or back together are appreciated.

    yea I was going to trythat same setup but he doesnt have any ESC in stock

    one thing I notice u using the tools that came with kit .. if you grab screw driver kit in those sizes makes taking and putting together alot quicker and easier IMO

    I meant to pick a set of the tools up before I started today. I will have to do that tomorrow.

    Finally was able to take the bulkhead off. I noticed that on the bulkhead itself there is some type of grease/lubricant. Should I be putting some type of grease/lubricant inside of the gearbox/bulkhead assembly before putting it back together? The alan wrenches point to the grease/lubricant build up in the following picture:

    I should have known things were moving too smoothly. Was trying to get the screw on the motor mount out in order to uninstall the RPM sensor and I stripped the screw. I'm calling it a night.



    Final picture of the night:

    from the pictures, it looks like the front of the chassis exploded and needed replacing.

    Heat that motor mount up to melt the loc-tight before trying to remove that screw again.

    Thanks for that tip. As soon as it stripped I thought about it being held by loctite but it was too late.

    $800? Sell your primary means of transportation and you can afford an XO-1. That's what I did.

    So is this build going to include an optional skateboard deck and use of valvesprings on the shocks to keep it from bottoming under the weight of a person? Put together a liquid cooling system like that other guy on here, gear it low low and you're good to go go. XO-1 has about 6.5hp so you could ride it to work, do speedruns at lunch and ride it home!

    Haven't had time to work on it since the night I started this thread. This week doesn't look too promising either.

    Put the bulkhead together, but still waiting for a new RPM sensor. Installed the taller battery holders, but my batteries are still too tall and wide so I will need to find another way to strap them down.

    I have the new sensor, but now I am waiting on some battery straps. This is almost as bad as waiting for parts for a real car. Nothing ever goes as planned.

    Received parts, but still having issues installing them. I am beginning to wish I left the car alone.

    relax, lay an old towel on the coffee table, get the wrenches, put on a good movie may I recommend Tombstone, and slowly go at it. Hit pause when you have to go to the garage or fridge or bathroom. Keeps me from putting it all in a garbage bag and labeling it 6/20/2012 and sticking it in the garage until I feel like getting angry again :P

    Still upset with this car, actually I'm torqued off and in the red zone like Vincent Vega. Should have left it alone.

    XL2 without a mounting kit right now because I don't know if the wires on the motor are long enough to connect with the ESC if it's using that ESC mounting kit. Waiting on some measurements. In the meantime I am working on my own.

    You will save yourself alot of time, effort, frustration, and stripped screws if you pick up a proper set of hex drivers. those allen wrenches are ok for a screw here and there but a partial disassembly goes alot easier with a set of tools.
    Pay It Forward.
