    Oops. Again.

    So i may or may not have bought a new 2014 White XO-1 last night.

    Was looking at mine, crunching #'s, picking my jaw up off the floor at the going rate for a MME combo on Ebay, and decided i would be far better off buying a new XO-1, donating the MMM/2200kv that was in my old XO-1 to another rig and potentially selling the very low run time roller to recoup pretty close to half of the cost of the new rtr after Towers very generous $100 off coupon. After all is said and done i can bring it in from Tower, pay shipping plus exchange and duty and still come out almost $100 cheaper than the LHS up here. Kind of a no brainer.

    At least that's how it went in my head anyways lol.

    Or i'll keep the old one for spares or a body holder haha.

    Luckily i have no one to explain it to. IDWIW

    But i did buy a new one.
    I will probably (not?) end up selling my first one as a roller.
    I have a hard time letting go of rigs.

    I started searching maybe you would give me a quick answer. I had a couple of 1717 1580kv motors they were a 6mm shaft even tho Castle website states it is a 5mm... So the Q&A what is the motor shaft size on the 1717 1650kv??
    5mm or 6mm?? thanks

    Not sure, Canada Customs decided to keep my XO-1 for a week. lol

    I Thought and am pretty sure its a 5mm special for Traxxas. All the pinion options are listed as 5mm Mod 1.0

    Yeah they are. I happened to find them on eBay and checked what was for sale. They also have a Facebook page. Pretty neat stuff. Not at all bad priced for what you get. Think close to ziekel casing like you have.

    Well here's a update. i haven't done a darn thing till tonight with my XO1 lol
    Haven't done much at all this year with ANY of my RC's, its been a disappointing season so far.
    It seems that it has either been wet or way too hot to go stand in a parking lot and play.

    That said, last year on my first XO-1 i was running a MMM2200kv on 4s and enjoyed it.
    This new one is a MME powered unit and lets just say, bone stock on 4s was very underwhelming. On the bench the TQI app shows 33mph, but on the street it managed about 29mph. YAWN! lol

    I have some SMC 5000mah 50C 3S on the way from Bego, should i wait for those or can i get away with jumping a few teeth on the pinion without burning anything up on the stock system for the time being?

    the manual recommends those on 2s lipos that want to achieve 50+mph just upgrade to a 21t pinion. I have that on mine since I run 2s plus I unlocked it and it runs great plus no heat issues which is nice.

    Prices could be a touch lower IMO especially when you factor shipping charges.

    I just bumped up to a 21t, kept the stock spur. I'll report back in a bit how she goes.
    Using a pair of 5400mah 50c SPC for now.

    54mph with 21/46 gearing on those 4s lipos.



    My question now is, am i missing something in regards to the battery indicator in the TQI Radio app?
    Plugged in, and the 2 freshly charged batteries are showing they are dead in the app.
    Is it buggy as far as charge levels go? or do i need anything else for that to work properly.

    Haha. I r dumb. I was concerned about the radio charge icon not the voltage which has its own gauge. Changed batteries in my tqi for new ones and its still showing red like in the pic in my last post. Not sure why. :/

    Just a thought, but have you put the correct battery details in the traxxas link app?

    Default is 6s, so if that isn't what you are running, it may show an incorrect reading on the display
    (similar to changing the pinion gear, but not changing the gear details in the app may give incorrect mph/kph reading, as I think this is calculated on the gear/motor rev, unless you have the GPS add-on of course)

    Hope that made sense

    I changed the settings just now (i had not previously) and visually on the dashboard nothing changed. Still shows the 54mph top speed on the bench stand.
