We put some cones out, fairly close together, and then were trying to thread the needle at high speed. I made a 55 mph pass and got through it. Then figured I could do it faster and stepped it up to about 80 mph.... and shattered a cone.
Well that was fun, and unexpected.... so out came the camera, and then we were trying to hit cones at high speed. Its harder than you might think.... putting a rc on a dot at high speed....
Then....we're doing the usual high speed passes. the grey ghost wins this race, my slowpoke Slash is bringing up the rear... when the McLaren in 2nd decided to blow over in front of me...
I had time to react.... but at maybe 70 mph, its not like I'm going to slow down a 2wd slash much... so I tried to get by.... and kakow!
Smashed the McLaren, the Slash lives to fight another day. The grey ghost (that other XO-1) did pretty well, won several rounds.
I brought out the XO and my Slash.... I don't see my red xo in the videos much, but I was running the Slash more that day.

man, that would do more damage than it looks. but these trucks are tough, and will continue to be.
All I need now is to set a new lap record.
That was a fun day. None of the captured cone explosions are as good as that first one you hit at 90! We need some Nerf cones next time.
Ps -1 on xo-1 durability
The first exploding cone took us all by surprise....
I had a moment of panic when I thought something went terribly wrong... then it was ohhhhh coool!
Great vids looks like you guys having a blast out there
That was pretty wicked to watch at those speeds. Makes one realize how tough they truly are!
Thrash It, Bash it, Break it, No Regrets!!!
looks like a blast ... pun intended
Once again I need the link because of my IPad
hey ducati777 i tried to send you a pm but for some reason the option is not there when i went to your profile. i blew one of my xo-1 tires yesterday do you have a single xo-1 tire that you would sell me?
why not just get a pair , eventually youll need another one ... how did the tire rip like that ???
Im not sure why it ripped

I think he went on vacation and his inbox is full or something.
I've got a rip like that. I thought mine was from a combination of really thin tread and the body getting flipped under behind the rear wheel and draging on the tire.
I think they tear across the belting overlap inside the rubber.
