Default traxxas xo-1 hits 153mph !!!

there will be alot of non belivers but i dont care heres the i-pod truth, i put a bigger pinion than what traxxas offers and ran 2 4 cell (8s total) at 60c (discharge) the mph reset after 100 but the top speed was there and yes after 100 i saw the thing take off like it was on nitrous! electric clich?? dont know but it did it. traxxas told me it is not safe to run 4s but i took the chance also put weights on the front

I see nothing. And, how did you control your discharge rate?

I like how the speed jumps from 94 to 153 instantaneously. Might be believable if there were video of the CAR.
