Call me stupid, but i dont understand how a pinion change cannot be done without unlocking it? Also can the traxxas radio and reciever just be changed out to bypass the lock?

I've seen at Traxxas in the parking lot -- Viper ACR, Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari 430...

And at HPI -- Ferrari Enzo

My Nissan just doesn't compare.
Oh I would take your GT-R over anything European. Good choice Patrick!


Built Ford tough, with Chevy stuff.

No, you need the app ( and therefore traxxas radio equipment ) in order to unlock full speed potential- can't be done via a PC by itself.

My god this is a thing of beauty! I really need to get this new mmm extreme and 1717 combo! Ive got an on road project that needs this in it. Sexy is the only word that comes to mind right now! SEXY...but a thousand bucks for an on road rtr? Thats a bit much for me personally, BUT I know there are plenty of deep pockets that will shell it out. Gosh, a thousand bucks the 1.1 I drive only cost 1300 and Ive been driving it for two years now. Sheesh. BTW when does this rig come out guys?

LOL! Yeah --

We will be publishing a .dll for the Castle Link Live protocol soon.

We are very happy that Traxxas decided to use our sensor protocol for their new radio. They really did a terrific job on the new radio and bidirectional communications system.

Having the ESC temp, RPM, speed, etc. available for display on the radio is very very nice.

I'm sure you'll be able to get the combo from ebay chopshops soon enough. Also, that's tje MSRP, which is always higher than the selling price. I would say the selling price will be somewhere around $800...

Hi Patrick,
Will the TRAXXAS 1717 be available to the general RC market?

Are there any plans for a 'module' of some sort so that regular MMM owners can make use of the telemetry feed as such ( like the eagletree live view ), or something akin to this little wonder?..

Eventually. Right now all our production capacity for that motor is going to Traxxas.

Plans? Of course we have plans!

Whether we have time to implement them is the question...

I think it does!
Also you notice the X0-1 have the exact same colors as the Nissan.

Also have you driven the Xo-1?

Definately a cool package. As always with traxxas there are things I like and things I don't. Dig the aero undertray and the sweet cc power train. Also the driveline dampner is cool. Don't dig the revo diffs or the 4x4 slash arms, front carriers and knuckles and rear hubs. Worst part is you have to have a iPhone to make it go 100mph. Although the sensorless telemetry is wicked cool. It's nice to see new stuff out of the cc corner. Can't wait to see how this all plays out for the rest of the cc line! Hopefully more cool stuff is just around the corner!
