Video: Traxxas XO-1 remote-controlled car hits 100 mph in 5 seconds

Traxxas XO-1

If there is anything I miss most about being a child – it has to be remote controlled cars. A company by the name of Traxxas has unveiled its new XO-1 remote control car that’s capable of hitting a top speed of 100 mph.

If that isn’t cool enough for you the all-wheel-drive Traxxas XO-1 will get to the 100 mph mark in less than 5 seconds.

The motor for the high-speed RC was developed by Castle Creations and is the largest brushless motor ever offered in a ready-to-race model.

I wish for two things right now – one, I hope that the Traxxas XO-1 has long distance remote control and two, I wish i was a child again.

Prices for the Traxxas XO-1 start at $1,099.99. You can order one here.
