    The short answer is that it already runs a lot of slash pieces as part of the chassis and suspension. Also one of the limiting factors is the under-tray, which limits the droop of the suspension,...

    I never had the original controller, but I have mine linked up to my Spektrum DX4S - I liked the idea of AVC and the big screen on the transmitter so I can easily see the changes i'm making as I...

    AVC is one thing, but you'll also need to change the punch setting in the ESC itself. The AVC is merely like a traction control system, not a true punch setting adjustment, so you'll need to dial...

    I run the Castle MM2 in my XO-1 with a separate castle cap pack and it's the perfect solution. The MM2 is also easier to work with - no need to unlock the 100mph mode, it just works. Plus, with the...

    I went down the rolling chassis route myself. It definitely wasn't cheaper (it was just perceived that way when the initial chassis cost was cheaper) but when you start adding things up, it gets...

    Could it just be the sheer torque of the bigger motor/8S set up combined with the extra grip from the GRP tyres that are breaking the drive shafts? after all, they were only really designed for the...

    There are a lot of parts already out there, with the XO-1 having so many shared parts with other Traxxas cars, and other parts are popping up here and there, and most of which are great quality too....

    Providing you use the SRS4200 series receivers, the AVC will definitely help to keep the car in a straight line, hold nicely in the curves and help get the power down cleanly.

    There is a specific procedure for setting up the AVC when you initially bind the receiver in the car, it's pretty straight-forward, but to make sure it works correctly, it's important you follow the...

    Yes, bearings are standard fit all round, but you can also replace the front C-hubs to add bearings in there too, to give an even smoother steering.

    Why not get a few car magazines and pull some ideas together based on what you like? or come up with a theme for your design. But most importantly, keep it simple, that always works the best.

    Nope, it's really easy to ream the holes a tiny bit bigger - I think as standard they're just under 3mm, but need to be opened up to around 3.175mm (1/8 inch), so you're only removing a tiny amount...
