Default Wraith transmission case

Hello,

I want to replace stock plastic transmission case for aluminium one’s.

Is there any model that fit w/o swap any stock part, gears, axles...

Best regards

Look at the VP vanquish products. I built mine based on that and the super shafty bombproof



Hang up and Drive

If you haven't swapped out the stock gears for metal yet that'd be a better spend than the trans case.
Wraith trans theres a few options but VP isn't one, you'll need to change the rear output to suit that (AX10/SCX10 trans basically)

The HR one in the pic above is available from Tower & RPP

I've had a GPM in my Wraith for a couple of years now and no complaints. All stock Axial bearings and shafts fit with no issues, didn't even have to shim anywhere. Robinson Racing tranny gears and other than one teardown to relube everything, haven't touched it.

I too have a GPM Wraith case in a truck & zero problems & thats stuffed with HR steel gears & SS 6mm outputs.

The SCX10 GPM case I have was another matter. Same HR gears but the bosses at the mid shaft bearings were too large & kept the case apart. Took just touch with a counter sink bit (yes an end mill would be the correct tool but I didn't have one to hand) to remove enough material to fix but does show their consistency isn't quite 100%

I got rid of the stock plastic when I stripped the gears. Right now I run the Team GPM #WR038. Not one issue with it. All the bearings and upgraded metal gears from axial fit perfectly. No need to shim or anything.

the VP SCX10 transmission cases are also very good. I use that with Super Shafty Beefy top shaft, motor plate, 6mm output shafts, Robinson Racing slash slipper, and metal internal gears. No issues and spins great.
