Great looking rig, and nice photos. My buddy and I were on Mt. Tolmie today, what a blast! What part of Mt. Doug do you go to?

Thanks. We started from the parking lot off of Blenkinsop and made our way to the summit from the left and down to the right. Such a fantastic place to crawl our rigs eh?

Thanxs. Yes. Gearhead wheels. I can't say anything bad about them, they are heavy (which is good), and hold the Pitbull RB II tire's beadlock perfectly...even with 4S power. I'm extremely happy with them.

I had some extra time on my hands so I decided to change the look of my Wraith a bit. I removed the majority of the stickers, changed the steering wheel to a chain wheel and completely changed the rear fastback mod.

I used the longer SCX10 links, which were a perfect fit from the rear roof cross-member to the rear body cross-member. The crossbar on the fastback is actually a modified Wraith aluminum tie rod. I added a shock tower brace and also re-fabricated the ECS cover panel. I fabbed up the number plates which provide additional strength to the SCX10 links and provides some visual distinction! Just have to get myself some numbers now.

The old fastback old was very good, but complicated and this is much cleaner looking now.

Whatcha think?

Few more mods ordered to fine tune my Wraith...

Axial M4 Serrated Nylon Lock Nut (Blue) (4pcs) - To help keep the wheels tight with all this power!

Axial AR60 OCP Rear Axle Set (2pcs) - Spares for inevitable!

Axial Heavy Duty Bevel Gear Set 38T/13T - Decided I'm going to under-drive the rear end since it's already got 43/13T gears...this will go into the front. (front is currently 43/13T too)

Pro-Line SC Powerstroke Slash Rear Shocks - Going to replace the G-Made 103 Piggies with these to see how they work out....I think the G-Made's are a little too stiff and the leaking is starting to drive me nuts.

Pro-Line SC PowerStroke Shocks Rear Spring Assortment - Gives me shock tuning options.

Gear Head Wraith Droop / Lowering Kit - Gives me height tuning options.

This beast is a MONEY PIT...but....I love it!

New fastback looking for light and simple and stylish.

Old fastback be very strong looking and certainly it.

New fastback easier to make, but either with its own way of fine.

After spending too much time with other new RC's I have purchased, I decided it was time that my favourite machine needed another upgrade. I opted for the X4 Racing Voodoo U4 tires (silver compound) along with Gear Head 2.2 EZ-Loc wheels. I've really like the performance of Pitbull Dos Piezas 2.2 Kompilation Dual foams, so I modified a set of new foams to fit the Voodoo tires. I had to take approximately 1/2 inch of width off of the white outer foams because the Voodoo tires are a little skinnier than the Pitbull RB II tires.

I also picked up a pair of Yeah Racing Aluminum Servo Mounts.

I'm looking forward to trying these new U4 tires out. I have been extremely impressed with the Pitbull tire performance; these new Voodoo tires have big shoes to fill. (pun intended)

Here's the pics:

I just noticed, I will have to remove the Pitbull stickers now! I'm starting a new Wraith build using a new kit version Wraith for my Son and he will inherit the Pitbull tires and Gear Head aluminum wheels.

Went out crawling on Sunday and had a chance to test out the new X4 Racing Voodoo U4 tires (Silver Compound). Overall, I'm pretty impressed with their dry performance and it should get even better as the tires get broken in. Like any other tire I have used, once they get wet, traction isn't very good on the rocks. I do wish there was a little more sidewall protection, but hopefully they will endure the torture from the rocks when the Wraith is using the side of it's tires to climb out of hairy situations. We ride in some pretty knarly/sharp rock areas and combined with 3s brushless ROC 412 3100kV power, the tires showed absolutely no wear or chunks missing at the end of the day....I'll have to say, that's impressive.
