    That's what I was thinking too!! LOL I really could have used a white lid like that running this past weekend.

    Nice collection you have there.

    Phaltlines are awesome. I use them on my emaxx's and electric d8t truggy. Hardly any ballooning. One of my sets is unglued in many places but that doesn't effect the performance at all.
    The integy arms are crap. I had them on my slash 4x4 and they started bending from the torque after a few runs. I've also run rpm arms with xo-1 axles and the dogbones started to bend after awhile because the rpm arms have too much give or flexibility.

    Piece of advice... move the motor temp sensor towards the back of the motor. In my experience the rear seems to get the hottest.

    The carbon fiber is a decal over the original plastic.

    Ok havnt done much lately(havnt been feeling good)

    So i got my hands on 3 x traxxas 11.1v 4000mah lipos, took apart and now have 4 x 7.2v 4000 which makes 2 x 7.4v 8000mah. And with 8000mah there is a power difference.

    Had to space up the battery holddowns and moved the rear battery cup shorter to fit snug.

    And i can tell what FOD says how bad traxxas made the uprights, cause with big tires out of balance, u can see AAALLLOT of movement.

    Pics below









    Had to find shorter screws for the holddown spacers.

    Modded the suspension to have very little movement, the alum lower arms help this.
    The biggest slop i have left is the steering!

    Going to look if FOD did anything for that.

    Ok so after some testing with the Panther Slicks, the XO-1 stock tires are close, and it flips over more with the soft sticky rubber from the Panthers.

    In a straight line for drag racing - Go with Panthers.

    So I ordered the plastic pieces to replace all the ones I cut to put bigger tires on.

    I also ordered 2004 Cobra body for this one, should look awesome beside my SSR body on my other XO-1

    That's pretty sweet! I assume they are the same wheelbase? What are they originally from?

    Also had to trim front (if you look at pics of the front before, trimmed the black part), and had to trim back under the licence plate to clear the difusser (hope that's the right word).

    And will have to trim the seats & dash to make them fit.

    & heated and straightened the lower sides to fit into the XO-1 "body hold"

    But overall so far was not bad at all.

    Front body mount is in.









    This pic shows how much I still need to trim to get it fit right





    This is what happens when you use the wrong cutters

    You should figure out some way to turn that XO side piece in to side pipes.

    I have a kit, I don't want the wires to get tangled up since the body need to come off/on all the time.
