Got the BEC installed. Tried the aluminium panels and modified them little. First run with CC BEC and oh boy was it bit different than previously, plenty of power and speed @ 8 V.

Try searching with keywords 'servo wrap', that should give you some choises...

Package from Hobbyking arrived and so did my 4S batteries, 2650 mAh, and oh boy do those have some serious punch... Simply amazing, And I was thinking if I should change my motor, no I don't, but seems that I will have to start "Bomb Proofing" my Wraith.

Broken Servo Case was end result of this one, but check the video to see how 4S and Orion Vortex Crawler engine kick.

Well done good sir. You've achieved both crawlability and the speed the wraith deserves. I like it.
I've never seen a broken servo case, now that's done too.

I mean I love the whole build but those little touches like the switches/shift lever boots are what make this for me! can't wait to see what you've got next on the list.

oh, and is that a VW/Audi hatch that you're driving?

are you still running the same motor as your initial build? it's certainly looks fast enough to me and it sure crawls very well.

Yep, the same motor, Orion Vortex Crawler 21.5 T with 4S it sure is fast enough for me too.

So, yesterday I broke the servo case, ordered new case and spare gears, in the meanwhile had to do something to be able to drive - Good old CA saved the day.

Until I lost one pin from my rear axle, the collar had moved just so much that the pin got out, well made new one from Drill bit 2.5mm, cut it to 12mm with Dremel and again good to go.

Later it was time to go back to the school yard next to our house and have some serious 4S fun...

The driver arrived as well

Did the O-ring mod to shocks (thanks GMV for the tip) and gained roughly 3mm more travel

The driver has some issues that needs to be fixed, too long upper torso -> bad fit on the seat + stearing wheel

I just removed the stock red rubber stoppers and replaced them with normal O-rings.
