ive been subscribed to this guys youtube channel for a while watching his xo1's. he's consistently been doing 120-130mph via gps and now he's got a complete video up of his xo1 doing 148mph with a gps reading. pretty darn impressive... we need to find out some more details on this thing!
notes on video
"Traxxas XO1 with Kershaw Designs 8s set-up. Castle XL2 ESC, Leopard motor, Nanotech 5000mah 65c 2x4s lipo's, and verified by Garmin forerunner 101 GPS. You can see my launch was very poor (car not tracking straight out of the hole) which led to a low speed when the vehicle passed by the camera (around 80mph). Full throttle was not hit until after the vehicle passed by me (the operator).
I ended up driving the vehicle out of range while braking which is why I had to walk towards the car in order to drive it back. Keep posted for better video's in the future which will show radar gun verification as well as a video view of when the car actually passes by the camera at speeds of 130-140mph."
