150 MPH XO-1 Build

I all started with my love for speed. I love to drive as fast as possible. I started to receive speed tickets so the had to stop. I we to the next best thing and that was RC racing.  I picked up my first Traxxas XO-1 and I was hooked.  I got it up to 100mph but I wanted to go faster. At this point it was time to build and I started the 150 mph project.  This new XO-1 received all the bells and whistles. I installed Castle Creations 1/5th scale ESC with A Leopard 1/5th scale motor. I used all 1/5th scale mounting products from High Gear RC. And batteries from Max Amps. I also went with 1/5th scale wheels from GRP and adapters from RC Hornet Products. Also it would never go fast with using the Boca Bearings Lighting Kit for the Traxxas XO-1.

First we break it down and start installing out new bearings
