I received my XO-1 today.. I've been on the fence over one of these for some time. I kept waffling between one of these, a 360mm GT2, or just keep on with my Rally GT8 conversion. I decided I needed one of these added to my arsenal of RC weapons regardless of the path I take.. Besides, now that this decision is done, I can move on.
I ordered mine from Futureshop early this week and it arrived yesterday. I picked it up at the post office today. The price was just so right how could a person not own one of these? I don't have a lot planned for it, however the first thing will be to remove the OEM Rx and install a Futaba R304SB Rx so I can use my Futaba Tx.
I have a few clear bodies coming for it so I can paint my own XO-1 as my car. I have also ordered a set of Aluminum A arms for it. I would not be surprised if this car is more of a shelf queen, as I do not know of too many places where I can run this unit, yet... A Full size car group I attend sessions with often rents the local Oval Speedway, I will for sure take it out there some time and run it on the track.
For now it just feels good to have a Super car in my garage, even if it's just to polish and sine it for the time being... I do intend to take it out for a spin, so please don't pelt me sticks and stones
Seeing as I'm new to the XO-1, please feel free to recommend or suggest anything I should look out for and keep in mind. Thanks!
Oooh, cutting the factory seal
Color..? My wife said "Nice, it's the same color as your car!"
