Velocity RC Magazine – Traxxas X0-1

Written by: Derek Buono

Our magazine is new. How new you ask? Well, we haven’t even come out with our first issue yet, but we’re working on it. One of the most exciting things to come out…well since maybe man was born, is the new Traxxas X0-1. This car simply is either dumb, brilliant, insane, magic, or a unicorn. Just about everybody who considers themselves an “RC guy” secretly wants one, and few have gotten them as actual “press cars.”

We at VRC Mag have always been fans of Traxxas. They were the first to really break the RTR market open and still nobody can really match their products. Did they have to come out with this land missile? Probably not, but the fact that a company has a brass set to put out an RTR that can approach 100mph out of the box is simply mind blowing. We are currently charging the batteries and setting up the photo shoot/video shoot for our first issue. We couldn’t be more excited to see how this “puckering” speed will feel and if we can actually find the space to get it up to that century mark. Either way…this is going to be fun!
