100 mph, 0-60 in 2.3 secs, AWD & iPhone connectivity for $1,100

Over 100 mph. A 0-60 clip in just 2.3 seconds, and 0-100 in under 5. State-of-the-art technology. All Wheel Drive. Cutting edge design. Are we talking about the latest European supercar? No, this is Traxxas gamechanging X0-1 Remote Control car, the first ever out-of-the-box RC supercar. Having existed for over 25 years, Traxxas has put all its technology into one 1/17 size racecar that’ll do laps around your grownup vehicle before you’ve even shifted into drive. Perhaps the coolest feature of all is the Traxxas Link — a  telemetry system that allows you to control various Drive Effects settings (steering and throttle sensitivity; steering percentage; braking strength; throttle trim, etc) simply by touching and dragging sliders on your iPhone or iPad. Everything happens on-the-fly, giving you instant feedback on your changes. Of course anything that goes over 100 MPH ain’t gonna be cheap, and neither is the  Traxxas X0-1 RC — be prepared to throw down $1,150 for your piece of RC glory.
