    I have had a lot of fun with my XO-1 and I'm sure you will to. Here are the mods that I have done to mine over the years.

    Battery Strap Mod, Traxxas OBA Mod, Truck Bed Liner To XO-1 Body Undercoating Mod and the Ol' Remote On/Off Switch Replacement Mod.




    Wheel Balance Mod.


    Receiver Box Mod.


    Wire Guide Mod.


    Air Dam Mod.


    Motor Fan Mod.


    KillerBody with Lites Mod.




    There are other mods you can do, like different wheels, but these are the ones I like and have had good luck with. Hopefully you will to. Good Luck and Welcome!

    Isn't that a bummer. It's because of Photobucket pulling the plug on it's photo sharing. I still have the pictures that I used on file, so being that you're interested I'll repost them for you.

    As always Mr. Phelps, if you or any of your associates are caught doing these mods, I will deny any involvement. Sorry, I had Mission Impossible on my mind. (lol) If any of you have any questions, I'll be glad to help with answers and more "How To" photo's.

    It's best to take the body off, but you can just lift up that one side and use your finger to flip the switch.
