Default Jason's Wraith, the baby killer.

Got my Wraith in hand lastnight, shot some quick photos today and then is off to the hills to shoot some video this weekend.

Great looking, non-beadlock wheels and the ripsaw tires!



The best scale looking interior of any out of the box rig, by miles. More on that later




Another interior shot, this time with the roof removed.



Pop out the interior and you see the new tranny with a couple little changes to make it work with the optional dig.



Another naked shot with the roof, interior, and side panel removed.



A closer look at the tranny.



Pop open the hood and you can see the esc, water resistant rx box, and you'll notice that there's plenty of room in there to mount a servo winch.



Some cool looking shots from the rear, check out that axle truss! One with the panel on and one without.





Now remember that interior? I'll bet that Axial starts making this an available part, and we'll be seeing it pop up in all kinds of things...



Just thinking out loud here....

So far I soldered on a deans plug, installed a BEC, and charged up a battery, headed out to get some video this weekend.

Hands down one of the coolest parts of this truck. The people at the LHS were going nuts over the interior.

Yesterday I sat down and did up some quick skins for it, slapped them on at turtles house, then he took the rig with him so I only snapped this one pic with my cell phone.

It didn't turn out the best, but at least mine doesn't look like Harleys any more.

Ty took my wraith and headed out with Patrick to do a photo shoot, Patrick texted me this pic, and that's the last I've heard or seen.

Going to meet up with those guys and shoot some video this weekend, that is if I can ever get it back from Patrick.

I have seen lots of good pics, but to this point hadn't seen anyone tear into one, so I decided to be different and show what hides under it's skin.

Oh I know we'll see all kinds of these interiors out there here soon, that is one of the coolest pieces on this thing.

I wish I still had some of those stickers, I could use one on this thing.

I was hoping it would keep you out of my thread, obviously it didn't work.
