Here is a couple updates on the rig

Had our 2 race event this past saturday, and I needed to get the rig ready with lights, and all that good stuff. So the rig came apart a couple weeks prior to get started.

I decided that I wanted to keep it different, as I searched for different ideas for panels, I stumbled onto TURTLE's Taco Time! Build and decided that would be the perfect thing for my wraith. I hit up RPP and Dinky RC for honcho cabs, and bedsides. I decided on doing Dinky bedsides, as I have never seen them adapted to a wraith, and thought it would look really good on there. Might I add it was my first time purchasing from either RPP or Dinky, and there service flat out ROCKS!!! I will be a returning cutsomer for sure!

There was two things this rig needed to have, good looks, and lights. So I picked up a Mad Dog 5" light bar from RPP as well. I also ordered up some other lights for the Ultra 4 style lighting this rig was going to have. When I got the MD light, I decided that I would go a different route, as I really didnt want to beat it up, as these races can tear up equipment. I will save it till next time

I also picked up another WW for the Ultra 4 races. Someone needed to be able to guide the driver through the rough courses that layed ahead.

Long story short, it turned out great! I will let the pics speak for themselves.

So you had a breath of fresh air and you're already back to the black scheme lol. Not sure if i missed it in a previous update, but i really dig the passenger gps/killswitch.

Rig looks awesome Coco. I love the latest edition on the interior, and the Ultra4 lighting looked killer during the night race.

Thanks man!

I think it is just the way my Axial springs sagged. I cant remember what they are in the front, but they are a pretty soft spring. works incredibly well too!

haha ya, surprise surprise right? I dont drift too far away from black on my rigs just something about it and red together I really like.

Ya I didnt really update the thread with the passenger and the GPS/killswitch/grab handle, I just kinda threw all the updates into one post, I'll throw some more pics up of it later

Thanks Mike! I really think he fills the interior in nicely, he is a good fit in there

The ultra 4 lights are still one of my favorite features on it, I am planning on keeping them in there from now one

Thanks man! Means a lot for sure! Takes a lot of time to get these panels to fit, but the end results always make it worth it!

This rig is still alive! Lately, I have been working on my 2.2 U4 rig, but I got this rig back up and running for the last U4 race we had over the weekend.
