When you head out to the zoo with the SC fellas tell them I said hi then hit the trail between the RR tracks and the river heading upstream. I had a blast with my wraith up there!

From Wraith

but right below the K&N sticker you can see where the tube shows. You can still see where the panels kinda pulled out right behind there. That's where it still hangs sometimes but not too bad, I use a screwdriver handle to "rub" the damage back around the tube when it gets bad. My sides were longer when I started and have been trimmed back to what you see. If you made some delrin rocker covers however hmmm diamond plate delrin...

Cool build, lets see some videos!

thanks for the pic Speedweigand. im still unsure exactly what body or style panels i will end up running. i have a few more things i want to try before i commit 100% to anything. i will have my son this weekend so hopefully we can snag a few videos. im basically doing alot of testing thru trial and error right now. i have another wraith kit and alot of VP goodies on the way for my sons build and a few more upgrades for mine thanks to ECRC.


thanks to bmuzz1 i recieved these in the mail today.


i hope to get them mounted up later.

got the boggers mounted on my V1s for now. waiting on the V6s to arrive. man these are some tall tires. at least 1/4" difference between these and the TSLs on 1" rims.

This is a great build you've got going on here. I am digging the looks of those tires. I was wondering how RC4WD 2.2s would look on a wraith.

picked up another order from Ryan at ECRC ( East Coast RC, ecrchobbies, RC Rock Crawlers. ) last night. thanks agian for another great order.

cant show everything as a certain someone may see it and spoil his christmas suprise. lets just say everything in this build thread doubled other than the vxl and servo. now on to what i can show you.

my stuff: 1" wide V6 slws and titanium uppers


went witht the V6 slws because they remind me alot of the walker evans beadlocks


V6s with 2.2 boggers mounted on them




i am going to try to finish mounting the hood and start the interior today
