Default Wraith bodies? What bodies are you running?

I am looking for something different or custom made for the Axial Wraith. What bodies have you mounted on you Wraith? Post pics of your rigs please.

I use a modified poison spyder body. With some creativity, time, and some frustrating elbow grease you can make even the most common into the most unique. Pick something random and/or awesome, then research how you plan to get there. Where there is a will there is a way!

They are trimmed scx10 rubicon rear flares, and yes, the front flares are the PS molded lexan flares just painted black. I'm still in the process of seeing how I can make the rubicon bolt ons work. Here is another pic from about:

The poison spyder body comes with baked on paint inside, and I tried every method of removal, but sandpaper was the only method, you could just paint the outside but I wanted the clear exterior. It took a lot of sanding and by a lot I mean 6-8 hours with 320 grit. But it's all in the amount of time and effort your willing to put into it

Thanks for the heads up. My whole plan was just to sand it, primer it a few times, and then paint. May need to rethink that.. we'll see.

If you paint the outside you won't have much to worry about, if you paint the inside just remember that your first layer is the top layer and that back layers effect coloring of primary colors

Wraith specific panel choices are Wrangler, Bronco, and Blazer. Proline or Dynamic Concepts. I don't believe there are any other Wraith Specific choices. Though, you can make anything work if you really want to. ;)

Dynamic concepts Bronco body. Has taken a beating for over a year now including a couple of G6's. He makes the best bodies, hands down!
