some big boys craved for speed in their real-life rides and for some, the need for speed is equally important even if their ride is a scaled down radio control car. if you belongs to the latter category, the TRAXXAS X0-1 4WD Electric RC Car is the perfect radio controlled ride for you. come as a fully-assembled ready-to-race (RTR) package, the X0-1 is equipped with a 1650 Kv TRAXXAS Big Block Brushless motor that is capable of sending this pocket rocket sprinting to 100 mph (87 km/h) in just 2.3 seconds. yes, it can actually hit 100 mph or more, and that translates to insanely fast in radio controlled car terms. other features include a beautiful, aerodynamic car body, four-wheel drive, and a host of upgrades including a slew of blue-anodized parts. along with X0-1 is the TQi 2.4GHz High-Output radio system with TRAXXAS Link model memory and factory installed TQi Docking Base that works with the car’s integrated speed, RPM, temperature and voltage telemetry system, sending vital information to your iPhone or iPod Touch. such vast amount of control is unheard of until now and for that, you will need to shell out a cool $1099.99 for one of these. though it is worthy to note that, the car itself is capable of achieving 50+ mph out-of–the-box, so in order to satisfy the speed-demon in you, there are a couple of things that you need to do – like installing the optional 34-tooth pinion gear and 46-tooth spur gear, and unlocking the electronic speed governor via the TQi radio with an iPhone or iPod Touch. sounds complicated, huh? definitely not for the faint of heart.
