W.O.D. inspired family 4 seater buggy, "Southern Comfort" by CFM
 
I have a thread in the Wraith section on this build but just wanted to do a build thread just on this part of the build and not the progression of the Wraith over time and seeing as how the only part left that of the Wraith will be the skid.
Buggy is based off the 4 seater Revolution chassis by W.O.D. and one of Woodlee's earliest builds. He has the best eye for these style rigs and aren't just skeletons like the other buggies being built in that style.
I have enlisted Tyler from the Dinky RC garage to handle the chassis work as I'm to busy these days and he seems to have a good eye for this style rig.
Parts list will be updated here as I piece it together.

Dinky RC built chassis
Carter Fab & Machine panels
Hitec 7955TG
Holmes Crawlmaster 13t
FXR Pro w/ 4s capacitor
Castle BEC
Gt3B
C.L.A.W winch
Heyok no drift winch controller
Axial AX-10 metal gear trans w/ Crawler InNovations Maxx outputs
Maxx shafts
Team 3six seats
Team 3six limit straps
Team 3six fire extinguisher
Team 3six gauge panels
DH Fab yellow top Optima batteries
Proline scale accessories
Full light kit
Exo Griffin radiator
RC4WD King dual rate coil overs
The Scale Shop Versante bead locks with custom rings and CFM scale lug mod
Crawler InNovations DD closed cell foams
Axial R35 Ripsaws(until the proper scale tires start being offered in the right compound)

Rest of the parts most everyone knows what they look like and will show up as the build progresses unless you request pics and that's no problem.

Right now I'm torn on which axles to run. It will be between the "Titan 60" axle housings or the "Ultimate 9" axle housings. Here is a link to the axles: http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/axial...-complete.html, http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/axial...-post-2-a.html
The Titans are finished and were sent for mockup. The 9s are nearing completion.

Yes sir they are. I stock up on them so I can modify all my wheels when needing that extra little touch.

Here is a pic of the rear axle ready to be sent off an have the truss and link mounts welded up. Got the lockouts drilled an tapped this morning and just need to make the shafts but that will be a quickie.

The "Ultimate 9" housings definitely have the wow factor over the "Titan 60" housings but the rear links are going to be tricky with the extreme offset rear diff. Decisions decisions!!!

I've been doing research for my custom AR60 axle build and came across your stuff. I've been really impressed with your work and you have inspired me to get these axles done. "thumbsup"

I am looking forward to this build; I'm a big fan of Adam's work and I think you will do him right. 8)

Thanks man, love all of your builds as well, always top notch stuff. The custom axle housings I build is the only thing I can do to really separate me from the pack at this point I think. Haven't seen anyone else hacking up perfectly good housings that cost a few hundred dollars before the work even begins. Gotta pay to play.
And some of the scale detail going into the rigs these days, Norm(cough cough), is insane.
In case you haven't seen all my scaler axles or want work done here is a link. http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/axles...-housings.html

Little something to cover the servo under the hood. Have another one coming that has a blower on it. Nice part is they easily break down for fitment and customization. They also are the perfect size for Wraith sized builds. Set it in my chassis last night and fits perfect where the stock electronics box used to fit.

You can get them on eBay and possibly local toy store. They are the engine upgrades for the Cars 2 toys. Just type in ridemakerz on eBay and it will bring the stuff up. The oil pan is also hollowed out on these as well for possibly a small receiver or something.
