X0-1 4WD Electric SuperCar 1/7th 2.4Ghz
When the goal is 100+mph, "off the shelf" is out of the question. Traxxas partnered with Castle Creations to develop the Mamba Monster Extreme power system specifically for the unique power requirements of the XO-1. The proven Mamba Monster system has been enhanced for higher output when used with 6S LiPo power. From its integrated capacitor bank to the proprietary software created just for XO-1, the Mamba Monster Extreme speed control represents the state-of-the-art in big-volt power delivery.
The ultimate brushless powerhouse! Custom tuned for the XO-1, the Traxxas Big Block motor features a finned, heat-dissipating can, oversized premium-quality bearings, sintered Neodymium magnets, and superior electromagnetic design. The Big Block brushless motor invites "cubic inches" to the party for massive acceleration and true supercar performance with the largest brushless motor ever offered in a Ready-To-Race model.
Traxxas TSM gives you all the benefits modern electronic stabilization has to offer without intruding on your driving fun or introducing unexpected side effects that can be found on other systems such as drastically reduced turning radius, braking assistance that times out (quits), throttle restrictions, and an overall disconnected driving feel. Traxxas engineers developed superior tuning algorithms that run on high-speed, precision electronic components to create a system that works invisibly, in the background, without ever limiting your throttle. TSM can be fine tuned (or turned off) for different surfaces by simply adjusting the multi-function knob on the TQi transmitter, or by adjusting the slider in the Traxxas link app. The result is that you are driving faster, with more ease, and having more fun. In fact, you may not even realize how much TSM is helping you until you turn it off and test your driving skills without it!
How does it Work?
TSM lives in the receiver of the model. The TQi TSM receiver has a new part number, 6533. TSM works the TQi transmitters equipped with a Multi Function knob. The Multi Function knob adjusts the amount of assistance provided by TSM. More assistance tightens the control, virtually eliminating fishtailing and sliding. Less assistance allows the vehicle to be more loose for controlled power slides and “steering” with the throttle. TSM never restricts throttle input. The driver always has complete control of the power. TSM can easily be turned off by simply turning the multi-function knob counterclockwise to its stop. TSM can also be adjusted in the Traxxas Link application. The control icon is in the “Garage” in Traxxas Link and also the Drive Effects screen.

XO-1's center driveshaft is formed from extruded aluminum. There are no dogbones to wear, no drive cups to wobble. The extrusion process allows the shaft to be hollow and lightweight with internal splines that fit directly and securely onto the input shafts of the front and rear drive assemblies. The shaft runs perfectly straight and true and offers superior durability. Traxxas engineers highlighted this important innovation with vivid blue anodizing and a laser-etched Traxxas logo.
At a full 27 inches long and 12 inches wide, XO-1 is a commanding presence on the road. Its extra-large 'footprint' improves stability, increases traction, tolerates road imperfections, and delivers high-speed handling that no 1/10 'touring car' can match.
The XO-1's sealed differentials represent the state of the art in power handling and efficiency. Precise silicone gaskets and X-ring seals allow the diffs to be tuned for specific running conditions by varying the viscosity of the fluid inside them. Reinforcing bars within the differentials increase strength to withstand XO-1's over-the-top power. Differential access for tuning is quick and easy. Just remove the front or rear cover and the entire differential slides right out.
Developed with advanced modeling techniques, XO-1's stunning form has been shaped by pure function. The front splitter and canards, smooth undertray, rear diffuser and wing work in harmony to harness airflow and convert it to downforce while minimizing drag—critical to achieving 100+mph speeds. XO-1 is the first to deploy a fully developed and functional air-management system in a high-performance radio-control car.
XO-1's advanced aerodynamic components are integrated into a unique body developed specifically for high-speed stability and increased downforce, with a powerful, wide-track look. The durable, injection-molded rear wing is mounted solidly to transfer downforce to the body and chassis.The painted ProGraphix body is molded in durable 1 mm polycarbonate. Decals are also applied to save you time and get you driving just minutes out of the box.
XO-1 combines extreme high performance with sport driving versatility by including two splitters: the factory-installed standard splitter, and the canard-equipped High-Downforce splitter for 100+mph speed runs. The aggressive canards provide very high downforce to keep XO-1 locked to the pavement. The splitters are constructed of flexible plastic to resist impact damage, and the splitters and canards can be replaced individually in minutes.
Developed specifically for XO-1, the SS (steel spline) dual-CV driveshafts are stunning examples of high-strength, low-mass construction and Traxxas' attention to detail. The splined, nickel-plated shafts slide smoothly as the suspension is compressed, assuring efficient power transfer. The female half-shafts are machined and hardened steel with a durable black-oxide finish. The telescoping shafts handle much greater torque loads than conventional driveshafts. Flexible rubber boots protect the CV joints and splines from dirt and debris.
Splined 17 mm aluminum hex hubs are standard equipment on the XO-1 to make certain its considerable horsepower transmits directly to the road. The splined design is extra strong with unsurpassed torque handling to resist twist-out no matter how hard you launch the XO-1 off the line.
'Pitch' refers to a gear's tooth size—the smaller the number, the bigger the tooth. Electric cars typically use 48 pitch gears; 32 pitch is common for nitro. XO-1's gear teeth are the largest in the Traxxas line: Module 1, the equivalent of 25.4 pitch. In addition to having larger, more durable teeth, XO-1's gears are a full 8 mm wide to spread drive loads over a greater area to extend wear and increase efficiency. Even the pinion is specialized, made of high-strength steel and developed specifically for the XO-1.
Developed specifically for the XO-1, the Cush Drive™ absorbs drivetrain shocks with a custom-shaped elastomer damper housed between the spur gear and the drive hub. Under extreme load (such as hard, high-traction acceleration), the elastomer flexes to dissipate shock without interrupting power flow. The result is instant acceleration with no wasted power.
State of the art in every way, XO-1's hard-anodized, PTFE-coated aluminum GTR shocks represent the pinnacle of performance, offering silky smooth damping and a serious factory-works look. Thanks to the extra tough hard-anodized finish, shock performance stays true and consistent for less maintenance and better handling, run after run. Titanium Nitride coated shock shafts slide past X-ring seals for virtually friction-free operation, incredibly responsive suspension action, and extra-long seal life. The durable titanium nitride finish offers durable, smooth, consistent performance.
Specially developed for high-speed use, XO-1's slick tires are the first to be rated for 100+mph. Zero-stretch belting reinforces the soft-compound rubber, and molded inserts support the tread. Black-chrome Split-Spoke wheels set off the 17mm blue-anodized nuts that secure them, and the wheels extra-wide tire mounting area assures 100mph reliability.
XO-1 can accommodate a variety of battery configurations and sizes with its unique, scalable battery compartments and quick-release hold-downs. The compartments' rear bulkhead can be positioned for 135 mm and 155 mm pack lengths. The hold-downs can be flipped to hold 23 mm and 25 mm pack heights. With the optional expansion clips, 38 mm to 43 mm tall packs can be installed. Removing and installing batteries is easy; just flex the latch open to release the pack, and snap the hold down into the latch to lock it into place.
XO-1 relies on the proven strength of aluminum plate construction for its chassis. The 3 mm 6061 aluminum upper and lower decks are rigid yet lightweight, and the lower plate acts as a heatsink for the power system. The aerodynamic components are fully integrated with the chassis in a combination of art and science that could only come from Traxxas.
For maximum strength and enhanced motor cooling, XO-1 features a machined-aluminum motor-mounting system. The 8 mm thick aluminum resists flex and holds the motor tight under the highest loads. XO-1's high rpm and torque make proper gear mesh critical, so Traxxas engineers incorporated a unique adjustment screw into the mount to dial in the gear mesh with micro-precision.
XO-1 is factory equipped with machined aluminum shock towers to provide stiffness and strength fox maximum control. The rigid shock towers make sure the XO-1's GTR shocks work efficiently to absorb road imperfections and cornering loads. Vivid blue anodizing highlights the towers against XO-1's dark-anodized chassis and black parts.
XO-1's artfully machined aluminum C-hubs are Traxxas Tough and feature carefully engineered steering and suspension geometry for track-ready performance. The brilliant-blue anodized finish, machined highlights, and the laser-etched TRX logos show off Traxxas' signature style.
Precision-machined for total steering accuracy and bulletproof strength, Traxxas Aluminum Steering Blocks deliver razor-sharp handling and precise control at triple-digit speeds. Solid 6061 aluminum construction guarantees road-ready strength and stiffness. The blocks hold heavy-duty 6X12 mm bearings selected just for XO-1.
Traxxas aluminum stub axle carriers add larger 6x12 mm bearings to handle the high-rpm demand of a 100+mph supercar while maintaining the beautiful blue-anodized look of the machined axle carrier.
XO-1's receiver is fully enclosed for protection from the elements. The antenna and servo wires route neatly through a patented watertight seal, and a custom blue O-ring seals the receiver box to protect the receiver from water. The receiver can be removed for service and aftermarket receivers can be installed without losing the sealing properties of the box.
A 100+mph supercar needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance. The waterproof steering servo (#2075) uses O-ring seals to keep the fun going when things get wet. The Traxxas digital high-torque servo provides precise steering authority and speed for high-speed handling.
XO-1's steering bellcranks feature optimized geometry and a cam-type servo-saver to protect the servo's gears from crash damage without compromising steering precision.
Pro-quality, high-grade, metric hex-drive hardware is used throughout for extra strength, and easy maintenance and repair. The black-oxide rust-resistant finish provides a high tech look and feel.
Precision rubber-sealed bearings offer the ultimate in super low-friction performance and maximum protection in dusty environments. They are used in all exposed locations on the truck and are virtually maintenance free.
Factory fitted, heavy-duty steel turnbuckles allow camber and toe tuning. The XO-1 is completely adjustable right out of the box to fine tune handling agility and high-speed performance. Captured rod ends provide unmatched durability and they simply won't pop off.
