I been thinking about putting the 34 tooth pinion gear on my locked car. Have any of you guys done this ?? How fast did it go ?? I need to find some better places to run these cars. When I kind a better spot then I'll have them unlocked. Thanks
Go ahead and unlock it, whats it going to hurt? If you don't have alot of room to run that thing you dont want the 34 tooth in there yet anyways, till you find room. My sugestion till you have some room, unlock it and put a 23 or 25 MOD 1 pinion in there.
I have the room but theres water in the ditches right now. We got 4 inches of rain 2 days ago. Thats why I need to look around for a new spot. I'm just asking questions because I can't run right now. I don't have a I pod yet either. I'm just curious what speed it is capable of with the 34 pinion locked ??
Does not matter how you gear it if the XO-1 is locked it is going to limit your speed and once the system thinks you have reached the top speed it is going to cut power so gearing it up wont help or increase the top speed.

I thought that it was just a rev limiter on the motor. Its a mph limiter ?? I didn't know that.
And how do you unlock it actually? Arent there anything you can dō? Well, exept change the motor and esc.
Sorry buddy, didn't know about you not having an apple device yet. Check online for some used ipods. Its limited by the transmiter. That 34 pinion is not meant low speed runs. You gota unlock it before you put that puppy in there.
Make sure it's at least a 2nd generation iPod and up, 1st gen won't work
Or if you have a spare ESC not from XO-1 but identical you can swap that in there and it will be unlocked without Ipod .. But who has spare ESC's laying around lol I kid
XO-1,SLASH 4X4 ,SLASH 2WD , 2/RUSTLER
True. But would need to solder a Castle cap pack on there to be safe.
So if the transmitter needs to be unlocked. Doesn't the ESC need to be unlocked also ?? Just wondering because there is an ESC and motor on ebay right now that hes selling as unlocked. Say I were to buy it... It still wouldn't be unlocked because my transmitter isn't unlocked. Now I'm confused.
Sorry, to confuse you. The transmitter is telling the esc weather to lock or unlock. Once the esc is unlocked (esc not transmitter) you can put any transmitter on there or use your stock one. The esc stays unlocked, until you change it back.
Okay , I get it now. Thanks !!
No prob. There are also a few other threads on here about unlocking if you need more info.
