Nice job! Really like the hood & magnets. What are they mounted on, on the chassis?

Thanks. I used our old carbon fiber 2/3A cell battery plates for the AX10 axles to hold the magnets to the chassis.

Lol! Just saw your edit Sheldon.

Love the build, looks like a fun Wraith. might have to borrow some of you ideas, especially the hinged hood with magnets

one question, where have you relocated your speed control to? Didn't seem to see it on any of your pictures.

Thanks.

The ESC is sitting on top of the transmission case, where the dig servo would be mounted. It's a little tight, but it fits with a some creative wire routing.

Here's a link to the electronics install.

I noticed you are using parts from the exo kit. will the lightbar fit from that kit work with the wraith? I am looking for lighting options for my kit.

Nice build up.

No problem, the magnets I bought measure 3/4" in diameter.

Thanks. I don't have any weight in the wheels. But, by flipping the rear shock tower upside down, and moving the battery to the front, the center of gravity is a lot lower than stock now.

The kit springs are softer, they are our "Purple" springs. The RTR came with a little stiffer springs.

Correct. I went to our softer Black springs for a bit in the rear, after moving the battery to the front. But, now that I added the scale details to the rear cargo area, I went back to the stock Purple springs.

Just read Hobbico buying Axial. I hope that it works out good for you guys, and us too.

Have you heard anything about the dig parts yet?
