traxxas are very very good at keeping products under wrap. theres much speculation as to what it could be

a few datasheets about car

The Traxxas XO-1 1/7th scale brushless onroad car is now live at http://Traxxas.com (http://traxxas.com/)

100+mph Out of the Box!
NEW Castle Creations Mamba Monster Extreme Speed Control
NEW Traxxas Big Block Brushless Motor, Powered by Castle
NEW TQi 2.4GHz Radio System with Docking Base*
NEW Integrated Speed, RPM, temperature, and voltage Telemetry System*
Factory Equipped with two Traxxas Power Cell 3S 5000mAh LiPo batteries
All Wheel Drive
Traxxas? is The Fastest Name in Radio Control?. For over 25 years, we have made it our mission to innovate. To lead. To find the next level of performance and capability. We are driven by a passion for speed and power, and now Traxxas has redefined the meaning of both. State-of-the-art technology. Cutting edge design. A total focus on quality and precision. All have been distilled into one vehicle that could only come from Traxxas. 0-60 in 2.3 seconds. 0-100 in 4.92 seconds. Top speed over 100mph! Simply put, the XO-1 is the world's fastest Ready-To-Race? radio controlled supercar.



The Next Generation of Traxxas 2.4GHz Control
XO-1 is equipped with the world's most advanced Ready-To-Race? radio system. The all-new Traxxas? TQi™ radio system with Docking Base turns your iPhone? or iPod touch? into a powerful tuning tool. The device display combines with the Traxxas Link™ App to deliver an intuitive, high-definition, full-color graphical user interface that optimizes your radio system for ultimate vehicle control. Automatic model recognition instantly recalls your settings for up to 30 Traxxas Link-enabled models—just switch on and drive. This powerful App gives you complete control over the operation and tuning of XO-1 with an intuitive, high definition graphical user interface. Once you have created the perfect control settings for your model, you can save them as a profile that you can restore later, use on another model, or share with friends. Traxxas Link telemetry sensors transmit real-time data including speed, RPM, temperature, and battery voltage with stunning visuals.

Heavy-Duty Drivetrain
High performance must come with high durability. Traxxas delivers with a robust shaft-driven AWD (all-wheel drive) system proven in our most powerful vehicles and enhanced with new features for XO-1. Steel-gear, E-Revo-spec differentials feature reinforcing support bars to increase horsepower handling capability. The extruded aluminum center driveshaft engages the front and rear gearboxes directly, so there are no dogbones or drive cups to wobble or wear. New, telescoping steel-spline (SS) driveshafts with dual CV joints engage the wheels with track-tested, splined 17mm hex hubs. New fine pitch splined steel telescoping driveshafts handle 50% more torque than conventional shafts. Oversized 6X12mm ball bearings spin efficiently at high rpm, run after blistering run

Ready-To-Race with Included Power Cell LiPos
"100+mph, right out of the box." That was the goal for XO-1, and Traxxas delivers with everything you need to hit triple digits—including a pair of Power Cell 3S LiPo batteries (http://traxxas.com/products/parts/batteries/powercellbatteries/lipo). Built with custom Traxxas cells and engineered specifically for the high power demands of Traxxas vehicles, Power Cell LiPo packs are fully equipped with Traxxas High Current connectors (http://traxxas.com/products/parts/batteries/powercellbatteries/lipo), Maxx Cable 12-gauge wire, and standard JST/XH balance plugs for long cycle life, maximum run time, and track-shredding punch.

Impressive, but for me going at 100Mp/h may seem impressive, but where ware you going to go to do this each time, how is it in cornering. Wonder how drivable it is a slower speeds. and alas whats the go on needing an iphone to unlock this feature. I believe it's goverened to 60mp/h without the iPhone.

Still got to admire it, I Prefer bashability over straight line performance

im with you, i much prefer an off road vehicle. im sure traxxas must have have shares in apple so the iphone or ipod will unlock the 100mph setup on it.
however
i like the idea of streching the slash 4x4 chassis which is essentially what they did to create this.now they have a basis for a good off road vehicle now, just change the driveshafts to wheels and the a-arms and your good to go

i got an email from www.liquidrc.com and it shows clearly in one of the photos from traxxas in the instructions "warning, risk of fire, injury or death" in the instructions for this vehicle...and its on the page about the lipos to power it with.
well at least they are covering all bases i guess..lol

be interesting to see who puts up the first video on you tube of their x-1 ploughing in to a solid object and exploding on impact in to a billion pieces:lol

depends how much money you want to spend?best places to source it from is ebay (yes i know, shame on me) or better yet a hong kong based shop that is known to be good like rcmart.com
or
rc-model.com.au (http://rc-model.com.au/shop/)

or also check out tower hobbies and amian hobbies in the usa
http://www3.towerhobbies.com (http://www3.towerhobbies.com/)

http://www.amainhobbies.com/

if you want to buy from tower or amain, be sure to sign up to their email list. with in a few days you wil get their specials. they do specials for international shipping every few weeks and you can save a small fortune

however, if it was me, i wouldnt buy new, get a good 2nd hand one for bugger all from ebay or one of the rc forums

this is pretty much the general consensus on all rc forums. dont be suprised if with in the next 6 months traxxas bring out a off road version. i wouldn't be at all suprised if they don't already have it designed and ready to go
