I do really like the scx10 axles under this wraith, but I like the 2.2 tires better than the 1.9 tires..I will try another set of 1.9's to make sure but I am thinking the 2.2s I have are gonna stay on it.

just a question with dual shocks on the trailing arms, do the rear of the two shocks have to be longer so that they don't limit the first ones?

I don't think they do, there is not much difference in the position of the rear vs the one in front of it..I just used what I had for the rear which was longer, but not necessary I don't think.

I just got back inside from the backyard...it started raining and got all the wood wet and my ramp onto the deck(2-1x2 furring strips) was wet and slick. The tsl's went everywhere without so much as a hint of slipping on any surface, especially the slick furring strips it had to climb up onto the deck with.. this rig is impressing me more and more!

how much of a performance upgrade do you think the trailing arm setup is over a stock wraith suspension?

I don't know how much but I do know that it is a very noticeable difference for the better in my case...I would guess a 50% improvement over stock in my case...everybodys situation will be different...

Going to have Brian at Brians Bodies paint me up a set of panels based on the police cruiser that "Experiment 626" AKA Stitch, stole on the animated movie Lilo and Stitch. These should be cool!
