New RC Car Hits 0-60 In Under Three Seconds

When I was a kid I had an old RC car that could barely travel at ½ mph, ran out of juice quickly, and made really cheap sounding car noises. Honestly, I absolutely loved that cheap-old RC but the newest model from Traxxas certainly puts it to shame.

The new Traxxas XO-1 is capable of going from 0-60MPH in just 2.3 seconds and can hit 100MPH in 4.92 seconds. Traxxas claims that its new device is the fastest ready-to-race RC. Based on the video demonstration and the touted specifications, I really don’t doubt their claim.

This speed devil will set you back $1,110 and won’t hit until December 30th. There are plenty of features to love about this RC including a docking base that turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into a powerful tuning tool, a heavy-duty drivetrain, computer optimized aerodynamics, and plenty more.

This sounds like a cool purchase for those who have large stretches of empty land or road to practice, or for those who compete with RC cars. At the same time so much power and speed leaves me a little worried about who ends up purchasing the XO-1. I just hope the owners practice responsibility and that it doesn’t end up in the hands of some mischievous eight year old out there (shudders).

Check out the video below to see what the XO-1 can do:
