Traxxas XO-1 2014

Traxxas has "updated" their speed demon car, the XO-1 to a 2014 Edition. The Traxxas XO-1 2014 edition appears to be the exact same car you already know of.

Team Associated just announced their latest version of their ever popular TC6 touring car platform, the TC6.2 Factory Team. As expected the Associated TC6.2 Factory Team has a number of improvements and fixes making it even better than the previous version such as the upgraded bulkhead, chassis configuration and top plate that allow flex to be optimized by disconnecting the drivetrain bulkheads and suspension mounting systems. The RC10TC6.2 is only 88mm wide and 2.25mm thick, and the carbon fiber chassis remains very narrow, resulting in reduced drag during the hardest cornering.
