See The RC Car That’s Faster Than Your Car
If you want to feel really inadequate about your puttering Prius, maybe you need to check out this video of the Traxxas XO-1. This ready-to-race remote control whip is billed as the “world’s fastest ready-to-race supercar,” and when you look at the specs you’ll believe it. With a top speed of over 100 miles an hour, the XO-1 blows the doors off of any other RC car on the market. Watch it in action:
A big block, brushless motor powered by a Castle Creations lithium-ion power cell is the furnace that fuels the fire of the XO-1, and it’s accompanied by the latest computer-optimized aerodynamics to reduce drag and convert it into downforce to keep the car on the road even when it’s breaking triple digits.
For a car this intense, a standard RC controller won’t do. It comes with the TQi radio system, which gives you unprecedented control over the car. It lets you dock your iPhone into the controller and run a special app for tuning and data collection on the XO-1′s performance.
The XO-1 is seriously the most badass RC car ever made. With a price of $1099.99, it had better be. We’ve bought actual cars for less!
