    1/4 mile time?

    Any word on this yet? If it can do 100mph in 5 seconds, should do pretty good in the 1/4 mile. Be perfect for the 1/8th if you could get it to hook.

    Well thanks for linking me to my other thread, but the link in the other thread doesn't answer either of my questions. I know it can do 100 in less than 5 seconds when unlocked, and 60 in 2.3 seconds, but I want to know how fast it will do the 1/4 mile.

    If my math is correct..... 1/4 mile should come in 11.458 seconds and 1/8 mile should come in 6.96 seconds. Those times are both based on a 0-100 acceleration of 4.92 seconds, and a top speed of 100 mph. The X0-1 is supposed to have a top speed "over 100mph," so the times may be slightly quicker...but not much. For example, if the top speed is 102mph, the 1/4 mile time would drop to approximately 11.33 seconds.

    Not too shabby. I wouldn't mind whooping on some ricers at the drag strip with it. Get laughed at until you smoke em. Heck, it'll even take a Camaro, Mustang, Challenger, and some corvettes.

    Yeah it'll whoop almost any street car showing up at the drags. Some street cars (stock) are capable of running faster times than that, but they are usually severely limited by their drivers. Haha.

    With an 11.4 quarter the only stock street cars in the XO-1s range would be super cars, or special edition muscle cars like the GT500, ZR6, or ZL1.

    That fun fact alone catapults the X0-1 to the top of my list.

    Those are just the production cars, most people into drag racing use modded out vehicles which can obviously go much faster (I don't know if you ever saw that clip of top gear on youtube that relates to this but it was pretty funny) and don't forget sport bikes either. 11.4 seconds is pretty slow considering most production super sport bikes 1000cc and up can do much better then that just wiki it. I believe the fastest time for sport bike quarter mile is 9.49 seconds. Where the toy car really shines is in the 0-60 time 2.3, seconds is VERY good. The fastest production motorcycle time is 2.35 and fastest production car being 2.2 again just wiki it.

    For the top gear clip just go on the youtubes and search "Top Gear Drag Race"

    Car and Driver tested it in July 2012. 11.7s @ 101 mph. With TSM it should be even faster now.

    Add better batts, you find the tires for the XO-1 are rated for 109mph. So I figure that to be the max speed one could get out of an XO-1. You might need Maxamps batteries with their very high discharge rate to achieve 109. Having said that batts also can affect the times too. Obviously a Maxamps batt will discharge notably faster than the traxxas lipos, but that comes at a cost. They are expensive, and their high discharge leads to a big battery with a lower mah capacity. For instance I have a dual Core 6s batt from max amps.
    It's 6500mah, but if i stack two traxxas 3s 5000mah lipos on top of each other (10,000mah), the single 6s battery is taller and wider, but shorter. The difference in height is huge though, and the weight is high compared to the traxxas lipos, but at this point to compare the traxxas lipos to the Maxamps is akin to comparing apples to oranges. The forums here taught me this: Higher C rating = faster discharge which may equal faster 0-60, 0-100, and so on, in addition to a raised top speed.

    Having said that, I use traxxas lipos in my stock XO-1 because they are reliable batts. I run Twin Maxamps 4s 5450mah batts in my Xo-1 with a Leopard 4082/Castle XL2 combo. I don;t use the maxamps for any of my other cars, because i have found that their high discharge rate leads to a slightly larger battery of which i don't need for my on road vehicles. As for my boats however, I use Maxamps because they seem to be the only batteries that last any decent amount of time dealing with the loads produced by the boat. One thing i have learned, do not buy cheap lipos - this is especially true with regard to boats. RC boats seem to enjoy devouring my other electronics - and they wonder why i don't run them much anymore. Besides the maintenance - which must be done each time the boat comes out of the water- the electronics can take a severe beating. One set of cheap lipos I had in my Spartan, swelled, and caught fire. I had no choice but to abandon the rig until it sank and i could safety dive to retrieve it later. Thankfully my hardware, like the speedmaster rudder, and that type of stuff, survived to be added to my last build, that i built as a memorial to a passing friend.
