CC's Nothing special Wraith :) now with VP, BGR, Mayhem.....
 
Thought I would stick up a few pics of my Wraith which I put together over the new year, unlucky for me I spent a week in hospital just after Xmas with a burst appendix, but by the time I got out of hospital 90% of the parts had turned up so I could crack on with the build

I like the way you did the light bar mount, haven't seen it done that way yet.

Cheers, I didn't like the way others used the tiny little screws that fix the roof panel on to hold the brackets, the light bar kit came with aload of different brackets, so I just tried a few different ones until I was happy

Very nice build mate.

Re: CC's Nothing special Wraith :)
 
Is your ESC mounted on the electronics box? How is the clearance? I thought about this but it didn't look like it would clear.

Curb Crawler 01-23-2014 12:40 PM

Re: CC's Nothing special Wraith :)
 
Yea the esc is mounted on top rx box, it's a very close fit to the hood, maybe only a few mm

Mudfrog 01-23-2014 12:48 PM

Re: CC's Nothing special Wraith :)
 
Ok nice. And you didn't lower the box? I have the stock AE2 ESC but I will be picking up the BRXL shortly. Going to have to try that. Any heat issues so far?

Curb Crawler 01-23-2014 12:53 PM

Re: CC's Nothing special Wraith :)
 
Straight on top with no mods, I haven't had any heat issues yet, but then I never really run flat out for any real length of time, also it's the middle of winter here so it's pretty cold, summertime running might be a different story though

First time I see Top cad wheel actually mounted on a rig, they look good!

HOw's the quality? Do they clamp the tires correctly? are they offset a lot?

Nice built!

Curb Crawler 01-24-2014 01:38 AM

Re: CC's Nothing special Wraith :)
 
I did have a rubbing issue running the VP steering links, but I run +3mm hexs on the front and they fit fine now, with the stock style steering links they bolt straight on though. The quality is spot on for the money and they grip the tyres aswell as any other beadlocks I've had before, I would give them a good 8/10 if I was to review them :)

Curb Crawler 01-24-2014 08:31 AM

Re: CC's Nothing special Wraith :)
 
I wasnt too impressed with the crappy 17kg that was fitted, so I've robbed the monster Savox SA1283SG 30kg servo out of my Tekno Losi 8ight T

I'm yet to order a set, but they are next on my list. I've spent well too much this month already so they will have to wait lol

Stuck the motor plate on

http://i801.photobucket.com/albums/y...pskhjwsxne.jpg

I love the way the mounting screws are reversed and have nyloc nuts, you can really torque them down with no worries about stripping the motor plate :)

burgerboy78 02-16-2014 05:10 AM

Re: CC's Nothing special Wraith :)
 
Looking good. Any reason why you went for the GPM chubs and knuckles over the topcad ones? I've got GPM parts on my Tamiya and topcad parts on my wraith. The wheels look good too I was looking at alloy wheels on eBay but they're double the price of those ones.

Curb Crawler 02-16-2014 07:01 AM

Re: CC's Nothing special Wraith :)
 
I got a killer deal on the parts from RcMart, all the GPM parts fitted and a set of hexs for 32 shipped :)

Looks awesome.

17 kg may have been happier on a closer hole

jwall046 02-16-2014 12:10 PM

Just search "cable braiding" on ebay, I would put some links up but only have them for UK suppliers. I used 4mm braid, it fits over servo wires and even opens up to fit over 12awg motor/esc wires fine

I first used it on my Tekno 8T, I now love the stuff :lmao:
