    i thought i give this one a try since its more aerodinamic design. My boy from LHS, i ask him for what would be a good paint for this body and he told my to get bright silver, atomic rust and backing black. turns out pretty good. check it out!!

    That paint came out nice man. I'm happy with the way it performs on my slash, didn't flip at 100mph

    I need to send three of my bodies to you so you can paint them. lol Painting bodies is not at the top of my list to do for fun. When are you going to upgrade to belted tires for your speed runs?
    Traxxas gone bye bye!

    I meant to say the stock XO-1 Body, I'm building an On-road Rally and haven not decided yet which body to run, I like the XO-1 body style.

    XO1 body will not fit on Rally wheelbase unless you extend it 75mm.
    Traxxas gone bye bye!

    oh got you, not anymore lol. my XO-1 wheelbase is now 325mm. going to build me another one later on with 360mm just like Sierravmax. that was my first intention to build the 360mm but, since i have couple of PF8 body i decided to go with 325mm.

    I am going to redesign my chassis a little bit better, its going to look exactly like the full scale but for 325mm wheelbase this way it will lightened up the chassis. already figured out how i'm going to shortened the side diffuser.

    i have 2 traced XO-1 chassis and ready for cutting. each chassis have different cut, one is at the front and the other at the rear. as for the rear cut, one hole happen to line up with the hole thats already there and its off by an mm (i'm a bit worry drilling that hole or the motor mount may not be straight) while the front cut all holes falls on blank area. going to cut the fornt one first. these cut are for 325-330mm wheelbase and works perfectly with the side diffuser i posted above.


    rear cut,

    hole already there but off by an 1mm.

    less drilling holes except for that one hole thats off a bit.

    front cut

    lots of holes to be drill but its a better choice.

    I'm thinking of selling some if anyone wants to convert their XO-1 into an GT8 1/8 scale this way they can compete with OFNA and Kyosho on track watch them on ebay!!

    heres what the finished cut minus the holes, i want to do this right the first time cause my first one i made some mistakes.

    heres my kit for any XO-1 owner that wants to convert to 1/8 scale (325mm wheelbase).

    the transformation


    conversion kit


    i highly recommend buying the tekno revo batt tray, protrac arms, tekno drive cup & dogbone. doing so will extend your width track by 8mm overall and that will even out your wheels just right at the wheel well with GT8 body 310mm.
