Looking good! I really like that wheel and tire combo. I may have to get a set of those wheels for the yeti. Just need to decide on tires since I have the u4's mounted on 6 bolts.

Have you been able to test the dampening with that extra king shock?

Thanxs. Soon it will be sporting the all black SSD wheels. The dampening is pretty much the same. The King shock is there's mostly for "the look". I did find that I had to put higher rate lower rear springs in because the blue springs were sagging too much for my liking. The Proline Power Stroke rear Slash shocks are very, very smooth.

I like this version of the shorty stiffy kit better than the original which was quite a bit shorter, which to me looked too "stumpy".

I have him building me the stump back I was on the fence about that and the TA SK but I already bought the full vanquish link set. What width hubs are you using on the gearhead wheels.

As far as I know mine is stumpy too, just a longer stumpy than the original...I could be wrong! I'm using the hubs that came stock with the GH wheels, not sure of their measurement. I stretched the rear axle out a bit so now my wheelbase is 14.5".

Good to know on the GH wheels I have the same set up on my yeti I would just have to change out the rear hubs for the wraith.

Are you changing the wheels out for looks or performance? I am considering those Gear Head wheels but worried they may be too heavy or too wide

Both actually. My rig is quite heavy so I would like to take away some of the rotating mass. I do however highly recommend the Gear Head wheels, I have a couple pairs of them and they are perfect.

I received my order from RPP...turns out the SSD beadlock rims won't work with the Sedona tires. The rims are too narrow for the tires. Not a big deal as I have a new set of Axial Rocksters in Black Chrome that work great and still keep the rotating mass minimized. The Sedona tires look awesome and are super sticky...can't wait to go and try them out on the rocks. I also received AMF Racing's aluminum half side panel set. I decided this Wraith was also worthy of Currie axles, so the VP aluminum axles were swapped out for the silver Curries.

Other than the DMG front bumper that I am waiting to get built, the transformation is essentially complete....but as we all know, an RC Crawler is NEVER complete!

Thank you....there are many incredible Wraith builds on RCCrawler and those have been inspirational to me. I've had this Wraith around three years now and it just keeps getting better and better......and yes, I drive the hell out it.

Looking awesome! Do you mostly crawl with it or what other type of playing do you use it for?

You'll love the performance of those tires. Had them on my first wraith, they worked in every situation. Only reason I removed them was to install a more scale looking tire. You keep improving the appearance of the wraith.

Thanxs. The hood pins are two pairs of Traxxas Battery Hold Down Kits (3727). I'm sure hoping I can get out this weekend for a crawl with this new set-up.
