Review: Traxxas X0-1

Zero to 100 in under five seconds. OK, don’t cancel your Veyron order yet. The Traxxas XO-1 is just a radio-controlled car. But it’s a 10-pound, 27-inch-long beast of an RC car — big enough to convey the muscle (and to be seriously dangerous should things go wrong at full throttle). The brawny custom motor can handle a gear ratio that would stall most RC toys — hence the pickup and the top end. The rear wing and ground effects do an admirable job of keeping the rubber on the road; we got some great four-tire drifts but never rolled the thing. Just watch your ankles.
