Default Wild Willy 3

It's time for a new theme for my Wraith.
I don't know if it's been done before because it's hard to keep up with all the Wraith builds out there but here is my version.

Wild Willy 3.




ESC:Castle Creations SideWinder.
Motor:Traxxas Velineon.
BEC:Turbofix.
Servo:Stock.(almost dead but tougher than i thought it would be)


Old vid:






Stay tuned for more.

Thanks,man.

The grill is made out of 1 mm thick aluminum sheet.
V2.0 will be made out of 40x40x3 mm angle aluminum to increase strength.




The parts i cut off.

Began modifying the rear of the chassis to make sure it will blend in with the new theme.


To shorten the chassis i will bring this piece 58 mm forward.




In order to do that these parts were cut off.






The result so far.
