Got her out on the rocks today with the revolver for the first time!

I am impressed, the Sidewinder 4 even with stock settings works good...

I still need to install my bec, and get a Castle link...

Going to put her on the rocks @ the lake today...

That looks fantastic...Looked good with the AR44 axles, but the AR60's are next level.

I got the shock towers welded in and take off shocks mounted. The ride height is about where I wanted it and the chassis is nice and stiff.

Its been slow going, but I am collecting good parts...

The Savox 1210 went into my Wraith and, last month I collected a New Savox 1212 638 oz in to throw the tires around over the 444oz in.

The wheelbase sits @ 13.5" a full inch longer all in the front.

This month I grabbed a Vanquish stage one kit for the Wraith, to replace the bent Hot Racing knuckles.

Also got the wheels/tires mounted...









Please excuse the hanging wires, the motor is in, but none of the other electronics... Battery is sitting on the frame rails to get the approximate ride height...

This thing looks like a real UA survivor, good looking setup.

Thanks, I have had this rig for a while now and hope to breath new life into it. Wraith axles ftw!
