Default Project Bombaith

Bought another Bomber I found on FB marketplace that is a bit unique but had some great parts already like alum axles, link, motor servo etc etc

Someone transferred all their aftermarket wraith parts to this so it's been converted in the rear from trailing arms. I'd like to personally convert it back but i'm assuming since they are wraith links the WB is shorter? in that case what trailing arms should I swap to?

JEC Racing makes wraith lenght trailing arms in stainless or 7075 aluminum.

If you go back to bomber lenght, you will also need the rear upper links and the rear driveshaft.

Thatís a Wraith skid and likely transmission too since the driveshafts arenít offset from the tranny. Iíd personally run it as is and tune it to suit your terrain.


Letís have a good look at that Exo in the back, too.

took it to my friends property yesterday, this thing wayyy outperforms my old stock one. needs some wheel weights but was very impressed with it as was my buddy with a very built wraith . had a minor issue where I thought we broke the axle or center chunk because i had 3wd. Tore it apart to find out a screw had backed out and I have metal gears and shafts

Also have to play with rear suspension, it has no droop because the shocks are maxed out so i'm going to order some 110mm and try to fix that, friend gave me some 120's and they just won't work with my set-up. Also going to order some alum driveshafts because you find weak links at his place fast

It looks like your shocks are mounted to the axle. If you buy trailing arms, the lower shock mount will be on the trailing arm, so the shock will be more vertical and you shouldn't need longer ones.

bought some wraith length ones already but still going to experiment, this has wraith links and axles under it. Kindof a "Bomaith"

I donít think that the trailing arms will work out with that Wraith skid. The lower mounting points are a lot narrower than a. Bomber skid. Especially the shorter Wraith TA unless they have high offset ends.

Wraith length but for a bomber skid.
But you can try and see if it fits.

The next step would be a bomber skid with the DMG adapter plate for the wraith transmission
