Exclamation Bender's Wraith Kit Build

Finished a step by step build of this for Axial's blog recently. Finally getting it linked here for you guys. I upgraded a few parts during the build process. It is now in roller form, with the electronics install coming soon.

Ordered up a Tekin RS Pro ESC and 10.5 Brushless motor for it. Also grabbed an extra Futaba 4PK receiver. Just need to get everything installed and go out for a shakedown run.

Upgraded parts:
Axial steel pivot balls
Axial aluminum upper links
Axial aluminum C's
Axial aluminum knuckles
Axial aluminum prototype diff covers

Link to step by step build:
Step by Step Wraith Kit Build - Part I - Axles

A few teaser pictures...........can you say black on black? I knew that you could.

Wow, very clean look. I need to get a set of those tires, saw some folks running those RipSaws at our local scale comp and they did awesome!

the color and design on the diff covers turns me off them.

Yeah, I agree the color isn't perfect for this particular build. I am going to make the jump to aluminum shocks soon, that might help spread that color out a little bit.

Not really.

I can paint ok, but I don't want to do it for a living.
