Traxxas Unleashes XO-1 Supercar, World's Fastest App Enhanced RC Car

If you don't already know Traxxas, it's one of the most known high-end RC car, truck and buggy manufacturer, and it just unleashed its latest and greatest machine into the wild dubbed the XO-1. A supercar of an RC like you've never seen before. When paired with an iOS device such as an iPhone or iPod Touch to the XO-1's wireless TQi controller, the XO-1 can achieve speeds of more than 100mph in under 5 seconds and 0-60 in just 2.3 seconds. That's faster than most actual supercars. It's the world's fastest 'ready-to-run', all-wheel drive electric RC street car known to racing geeks. What's powering up this beast underneath the 1/7th scale, sleek and aerodynamic body are two, interconnected 3S LiPo Cell rechargeable battery packs racking up a total of 1000mAh of capacity and a custom brushless motor. 

The XO-1's TQi 2.4Ghz controller is app enhanced and offers a convenient secure docking bay for both the iPhone and iPod Touch. Only thru the Traxxas Link app will you be able to unlock the full potential of the XO-1's insane speeds, meaning non-iOS users are out of luck. Using the Traxxas Link app will also give you control over the TQi's settings as well as display real-time data of your speed, motor RPM, motor temperature as well as dashboard customization and more. Going fast doesn't come cheap though, you'll be dropping $1099.99 on this RC supercar. The XO-1 is available right now, just in time for the holidays. Catch the XO-1 in action right after the break!
