the CC bec is not needed with the HH BR-XL esc just fyi! it has a great internal BEC! IMO 3600mah is pleanty of run time for a wraith. no need to buy more! but you might want 3s for some extra wheel speed.

should be a great build! I like all the VP parts!

only thing I don see that you might want is MIP drive shafts!

MIPs are on my list ;) I have them on my SCX10 and love 'em. I'm gonna stick with 2s. Not to concerned about wheel speed. I have a Traxxas Rally for speed lol.

Looks like a good parts list. You are going to want the Ti links also.

Did the wraith knuckles come with both steering arms? In their stock photos they look like they're made onto the knuckle. Thanks

The little arms are separate pieces but they come with the knuckles. Not sure why they are red but I like the color break up.

You are set up for some good times!

Some advice on the BEC: Give the TM internal one a shot. For the stock servo it will have no problems. For the hitec you may want to pick up a programmer and widen the deadband to ensure it isn't buzzing all the time. Depending on your driving or terrain you may not even need it. Some people do at that servo strength, some people dont.
