RC CarBuzz: Video of the World’s Fastest RC Car w/ 100+mph Top Speed

Offbeat

Why would CarBuzz write about an RC car? Because it hits 0-60mph in 2.3 seconds and up to 100mph in less than 5 seconds.

The Traxxas XO-1 is more than just an RC car. It is a track-ready RC supercar. Arriving just in time for the holidays, the XO-1 can hit 60mph from rest in a scintillating 2.3 seconds and can reach 100mph in less than 5 seconds. It can reach a top speed in excess of 100mph and is powered by a set of 5000mAh lithium-ion polymer batteries To operate the RC car at top speeds, you are required to download a special application to your iPhone or iPod Touch.

After downloading said software, you must then dock your pistol grip remote control into in order to unlock the special speed features. This dangerously awesome toy comes with some serious warnings. Traxxas' warning label reads "It must only be driven at its top speed on a closed course such as a racetrack or drag strip where there are safety barricades and pedestrian access controls. Operating the XO-1 in a careless, unsafe manner, without adequate care and preparation, can result in collisions with catastrophic consequences such as serious injury or death. Know your limits."

Risk of death? Sign us up for one on the CarBuzz Christmas List. Check out the Traxxas XO-1 tear up the track at Texas Motor Speedway. Also, you have to 'pay the cost to be the boss' on this one, as the RC car runs a serious price tag of $1099.99.
