Hello everyone, it seems that I became a new happy owner of Xo-1.
My name is Christopher. I'm from Europe. For four years, driven E-revo. Since two years I am a happy owner of 5ive. A year ago I did conversions 5ive-T to 5ive-E, with MGM 12s on board,that thing rocks but 12s 5Ah LiPo set works for only 12min. Who knows, maybe I'll check it in Xo.
I plan to use the XL2, and Leopard 5682. I found that you can get the shaft 6mm and 8mm but do not know which one to choose. Also plans to use the plastic pinion but I do not know if they are an option on the shaft 6 or 8mm.
Sorry for my english but do not use it every day.
hello, and welcome. I also have just started constuction of my xo-1, roller chassis, wheels, body, etc. I also have been looking at the leopard 5682. gears that are available without shaft reducers are 8mm size. check kershawdesigns, also rcextrememods on e-bay ( plastic gears) Good Luck. Message me anytime
I would suggest the 5682 with 6mm shaft. Should be able to find more available pinions.
Thank You for suggestion. Do you know if there are plastic pinion in version for the 6mm shaft.
I have already mamba XL2. Yesterday I bought a mounting kit for Mamba XL2 from HighGearRC from ebay.
Next step is to buy motor.
OK, I have just ordered Leopard 5682 with 6mm shaft and special designed for that engine, motor mount from HighGearRC. Cheap and simple, replace stock motor plate 6461.
Unfortunately I have to wait to get it about two weeks.
I just recived mine...
Can't wait to see it after the upgrades!
Is that a Losi 5ive-t? I mean is that the size comparison between the xo-1 and a 5ive-t, I never realized how big the xo-1 is, I've never seen one in the flesh so to speak!
In fact 5ive is much larger than Xo-1. At that picture xo-1 was closer without body and the illusion was created.
I got almost everything I need...
Very simple, fits perfectly

That's going to be one wicked build!
I was doing speed runs to day. I almost hit 100mph. Actually it was 157kmph so it was 98mph.
It was on gearing 30/50. My 38T pinion was finished by a little stone which stuck in spur.
Now I have to wait for my new 38t pinions to flight to me.
In free time I made my paintjob:
That black body looks nice.
With great brushless comes great responsibility.
nice lookin ride my man!
Thanks guys. This is my second paintjob. I am very impressed.
I did not expect that it will come out so well
Reaally nice!!!! what paint did you use??
Pactra metallic black RC280.
This may end up being a dumb question, but is that an XO-1 body? It looks different with deeper scoops and better lines-- unless that's just the awesome black paintjob!
It looks great, even better without the rear spoiler, maybe a more subtle spoiler would help keep the look
I'd like to get some more info on your electric 5ive-T! I've been thinking about doing one myself.
