    Same part # as the XO-1 rear tires. If you read the specs on the tires they are low profile with a sidewall extension. Basically just an insert that gives it the look of a high profile drag tire.

    “To capture the tall-sidewall look of a full-size Funny Car, the rear wheels feature sidewall extensions that include authentic, printed Goodyear Eagle logos”.

    In this pic you can clearly see the seam where the extension/insert meets the tire,

    Whether it is your cup of tea or not you have to give credit to Traxxas for being innovative and finding new ways to get new people into the hobby.
    I love drag racing. We run every saturday night in a huge parking lot with a Pro tree.

    This will definitely get more faces out there.. Help the drag racing seen grow..

    I wll be running with cars built for drag racing ONLY. This car can drive around and have fun with.

    Those cars are all carbon fiber with no deff or shocks

    ahh gotcha, gotta have a competitive edge

    i was taken back by the ~4lb listed weight w/o battery. for a car that over 2' long i was shocked it was so light.

    doesnt look like there will be much to remove. maybe the receiver box and shocks like you mentioned.

    I dont really see a use for this but SUPER COOL!!!! I WANT ONE!!!! Traxxas is going to redirect the hobby - again

    I remember my buddy talkin to me a few months ago (he is a PR rep for Erica Enders) and he was telling me about Traxxas sponsoring a funny car. He is going to POOP his pants when he sees that Traxxas actually came out with a car! WAY COOL!!!

    ON TOPIC: This looks like a nice ride traxxas. Get a few of them together and I can see these being a ton of fun.

    The "yawn" factor will be running by yourself, not a whole lot of excitement. but totaly yes if you have a couple of them out there or really anything else to race against they will be a blast

    Not gonna stop me from buying one though, im a huge Drag Racing fan.
    I already have mine on pre-preorder with my LHS.

    As soon as they have them in their system to buy i'll have one on the way

    Well the manual for MMPSCT with 2400kv sez motor max : 5S and ESC max 4S. Maybe it can handle more but I'm not gonna risk frying it.

    I kinda agree with you, all i can think is the next release will be an all new off road platform.
    Im acually kinda shocked this one came out wit hits own new chassis, i was kind of expecting it to be on the XO chassis.

    Not a issue of being faster just more realistic is all. Don't get me wrong I love the look of the car and the timing system looks awesome. But a nitro Funny car with a electric engine. Times and people have changed I guess. Some people can tune Nitro and I guess some people can't. We do live in a age of fast food and remote controls and the computer age.

There the closest your going to get to the real thing and not electric. Check out this real to scale dragster I built. The motor is in the correct way it has a clutch and real rear end with a ring and pinion. This runs like a real one 100% and it's quick and fast. The smell of the nitro and when you crack this thing off the line and those tires grow real tall, thats what gets your jucies flowing. LOL if all the top fuel cars were electric no body would go to the nationals any more.

    Thats nice but they can never be as fast as the electrics dragster. There close but will never be faster..

    Wow! So it's real! I was thinking they posted it as a April fool's joke or somthing dumb like that, but no it is really coming out! SWEET!! When Traxxas came out with the sc trucks, I thought "wow what a great idea!" What will them come out with next? Well, I guess the answer to that is DRAGSTERS!! Wow I just can't wait to see people setting up drag strips to race these. It'll be great! CAN"T WAIT TO SEE ONE!!! PS A nitro version would be AWSOME
    Is owning 27 RC's too many? No way!

    There doesn't seem to be any excitement on the person his comment was directed to. Hence his statement.

    It happens with every release...many people come out and say it was not what they hoped for or something that they don't want. That's fine. I'm pretty sure those that gripe about this will have others could care less about who will gripe about theirs.

    It is advised not to start a war about liking it or not. If you don't like it, it may be best to squelch the negative comments.

    Last time I checked in America people can voice their opinion either positive or negative... and I don't believe he is breaking any forum rules by doing so either... unless providing Traxxas with customer feedback is prohibited...

    Voicing your opinion is fine, but voicing your opinion over and over and over and over is annoying. All that does is waste everyone's time. The new car isn't what you wanted? Fine. It's not for everyone. Nothing we make is for everyone. I wrote a similar post in the XO-1 thread when the haters started to spam that forum up with negative posts. If you don't like the car, please move on. If you feel like you have to say something, (which in turn, brings more attention to the car you don't like) say what you need to say and move on.

    I'm also going to leave this here too:

    I wonder if that's a different version? All I know is I have several MMPros (even a couple from the beta-testing period) and they are all 6s. However, even though it's rated for 6s, I personally like to leave a little voltage "headroom" for those pesky braking spikes. So maybe that's why they say 5s. The MMPro (if that's what it is) in this vehicle does look a little different, so it's possible they beefed up a sidewinder (or similar) ESC specifically for this vehicle.

    On an unrelated note;

    As far as the negative comments about the car in general: you won't be able to please everyone. I personally like it being electric, but for those who long for the smell/performance/realism/messiness of nitro, there is nothing stopping you from doing a conversion. Heck, back in the day, the only way to get a decent electric vehicle was to do a nitro-to-electric conversion. I'm sure with a little ingenuity and basic fabrication skills, you could do the reverse and shoehorn a nitro mount, engine, fuel tank, and servos in there.

    I am NOT saying you or anyone have done anything wrong to this point however the "this is America i have the right to free speech " thing does not stand up here. The right to free speech in America means you can start your own forum and do or say what you want there. This is Traxxas's house and they set the rules as to what you can or can not say. Has mentioned earlier your feedback is welcome let's just not let it cross the line into ranting or bashing on Traxxas

    No more need to fuel the fire. Let's get back on track (no pun intended ) and talk about this vehicle.

    I'm keeping this positive, but can't we really say what we want? And give or inputs. It seems like there's a lot of trolling going around, I'm surprised this forum gets as much action as it does. When the control issue and fear of what's said or if someone runs a piccolo motor on a traxxas it gets shut down.

    Just get her some shoes/purse/whatever toy she'd like. Better yet, get her one too and tell her you both got one so you could spend more time together.
