To say that Ryan Cavalieri is having a history-making season would be an understatement, but most would assume his domination would be contained to off-road. After all, he’s raced on-road in the past with mixed results, but lately he’s been on a different level. I was fortunate to take a peak under the hood of […]

Traxxas Adds Stability Management to XO-1 & TQi Radio System

Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) is now standard on the XO-1, which will definitely make it a lot easier to get “the world’s fastest ready-to-race supercar” up to its 100+mph top speed.
