Since I had a spare Wraith cage I bought the lower frame rails from the newer one and I build my own version of a 1.9 Wraith with parts from another RC I had








It's a shame that the front chassis rail broke, looks like Axial doesn't do any research and development at all since just by looking at it is so obvious that's a weak spot, i'll try it this weekend on a close by trail with some friends and i'll let you know if it broke or not

we don't have any official comps in my area but I just realized the new Wraith 1.9 is only legal for class 3. guess I will use my Trx-4 if we get any comps going.

Where did you buy the lower frame rails? I'd like a set and a body off the 1.9.

Broke my chassis at By The Fire. I was not babying the truck this time, but dont think it should have failed as easy as it did.

Reef's does have a little support bracket for $15. Of course I found out about that right after I broke the damn thing. I'm considering just switching to the Deadlock chassis.

Not to turn business away from my fellow vendors, but why not hit up Axial and get free replacements? I've got a set on hand, and they are reinforced in that spot.

I do not. I am without a cell phone/camera for a few days.

But still, free is free.

I contacted Axial and they are sending me new frame rails. Hopefully they are more sturdy.
