Yes you will lose some top speed with the lower gear ratio but you gain a reduction of load on the motor. Or you can just increase the pinion size on the motor to match your previous overall ratio.

Im a 46 yr old guy who's last experience with RC cars was 30yrs ago with a Tamiya sand rover which put me off. I bought a Wraith for my boy the other day unfortunately he's now short of a gift as the old man loves it too much. Harley after reading your guide things can only get better.

Good luck man, the Wraith is still my favorite RC I've owned.

Dna do you try 38/13 HD in front ?

I know you tell us 43/13 is the best but my rear drive shaft have the head screw broken ; ; and I'm boring to drill it... crap and I dont be 43/13 front and 38/13 rear, ther is no interest to underdrive the front right ? so 38/13 on both size HD in front stock in rear seem to be a easier solution :/

i know most of you guys use the stock rear wraith drive axles on your rigs but im building a monster truck build with wraith driveline. super shafty bombproof trans with full vp front and rear axles. clod tires will mangle the rear drive shafts. any thoughts on a solid upgrade?

We really do need a proper HD axle shaft made for these trucks. Such as something out of a nice chromoly. Ti is not the proper material to be using for axle shafts in a truck that you aren't chasing the weight game.

I think there may be a good solution soon though.

I agree. I think 5mm spring steel shafts would be bullet proof. Ti is light but there are plenty of materials that would make stronger shafts.

I got tired of the stock shafts, after breaking another, so I cut it below the flange welded and 3/16 steal rod, and it did some work for fitting in locker and clearing screws.. Wasn't bad at all, and I can assure you it will not break on that part, Plus i took lil by lil off so it fit in locker TIGHT. Sick of slop. Hardest part was gettin it PERFECTLY Straight.

I got my first Rock Crawler on the weekend - a Wraith.
Was a kit, built up but not with much care and quality.
Thats ok gives me something to tinker with

I'm with you on this, why not some 5160 or 1095 material for shafts? Maybe CREEPERBOB could build some?

Question on the pro line shocks, I have been reading people run the slash rear shocks for both front and rear, this thread listed using the slash front and rear?

Whats the best setup for crawling?

The rears are longer and I usually run them on trucks that will see more rock time. The fronts are good for a more go-fast type setup.

Hey Guys, looking at diff covers and had questions. if i wanted to run the VP diff covers or the ARB on the stock RTR axles, will i have any issues? I heard with the RTR Wraith the axle gears are flipped to accommodate the fixed timing of the included brushed motor. So I would need to flip the gears. And replace the motor with something with adjustable timing.

Planning on doing Stage 1 and 2 mods plus Holmes Hobby Motor, Mamba Max ESC, Futaba Servo.

Would it be wiser to go kit or RTR also have Sanwa MT-4.
