    well, a sv8 and 2200kv motor will fit. might be slower than stock. 6 cell lipo will fit. do not get venom. look into spc or smc.

    It would be quite useless, those are for small short course trucks and those are light so it would be very slow and useless.

    Same gearing same voltage a 2200 will not be slower than the 1650.
    2200 x 6s (25.2) = 55440 rpms
    1650 x 6s (25.2) = 41580 rpms

    I've seen a lot of people using the 2200 for speed runs and reach well over 100mph but they are using rustlers, rally chassis. The xo1 will be lighter compared to stock motor system.

    According to castle the SW8/2200 is for trucks up to 9lbs. However I've seen people use them in revos and summits with no issues. It's not that the system won't have enough ump to run the xo1 it's the motor would be lighter and may not keep the car down.

    If it was me I would run that motor with your xo1 esc. The SW8 is a 90amp esc where as there xo1 is 120amp. Both esc are tunable the same. Fixed bec on the SW8 to 5.5 volts.

    This is not a full xo1 more of a hybrid xo1/rally.

    No. Sidewinder/2200 is too small.
