I'm liking it, the aluminum with the black hood and wheels makes it look pretty raw dog.

Maybe a video in the future. I'm going to add another set of lights to it and I have more aluminum coming from Carter Fab & Machine.

Well its about that time, since I didn't get to build this one (from a kit)...I'm going to tear her down. Finally ordered some Axial universals to help the steering angle. The axles and trans will be opened, cleaned and lubed.

RPP has had them twice. I got the last set from the second order. They should have more this Thursday. Keep looking on their site.

Here are some pics from today as she sits...ordered some new style panels and tube work from Carter Fab & Machine!!!

Changed the shocks over to Gmade and added some 2.2 MT Baja Claws. Trimmed the lugs for better traction!

The OG CFM panels...

The black hood with the aluminum panels looks really sharp

Try those claws backwards and they will work even better. Next make the larger lugs into three small ones, then cut the smaller lugs in half. This really makes them work.

What size Gmade's are you running and what do you think about the spring rate? I just received a set in 124mm and need to put them together still. Who had the red availible? I really like the Carter Fab panels! Your Wraith is coming together great, keep it up!
