Still working on the driver. Put Young_Version's heat gun to use here in the hotel room.

Great build!!

Axial should release a IFS kit for the Wraith so we dont have to buy an exo to get the parts..

BTW, how did you end up in Hawaii?

Thanks, guys.

frdtrkguy, military brought us here again.

SwampDawg, I thought about how brittle that piece would be after removing material. Not too worried about it. They make them in aluminum.


Did a little work sorting out electrical.

Got a cool switch panel for it as well. I'll have to figure out where I want that mounted a get pics of it installed later.

Last night I focused on lighting.

3Racing light kit and a G.T. Power kit are being used for now. I have 9 forward lights (until I get the chino light bar), these four for the rear, and I'll likely stick rock lights in.

Here's how the rear will look under throttle.



...and braking.

Might as well put a functional switch panel in it.

Sway bar came in. I used the Wraith front on the back of this thing. Also stripped the green anodizing off the aluminum shock bits.


...and young_version picked these things up for me.



Oh, RC4WD is out of stock on these wideners, so if anyone has a set of these they're not using, I could put them to use.

Small update.

Got the tires (R35 Ripsaws for now) mounted on the new wheels. Need to find proper wideners.
