Default Wraith rebuild.

I remember back to my first crawler with a prototype SW3 chassis from Bender and TLT axles and would have never thought this hobby would come to what it is today. I got out of the hobby and regretted it so here I am back and there was only one rig that came to mind first and that was the Wraith. I bought this roller from a member and slowly with the help from some other members and RPP I am slowly gathering up all the wants and needs to put together a kick a$$ rig.

Start screwing that stuff together man! Nice pile of parts you have accumulating. Can't wait to see it put together.

Removed the axles and stripped them down. Waiting on some more packages in the mail before reassembly can start.

Rolled the dice on some Ebay aluminum beadlocks and I am very pleased with the fit and finish of them. Only had one problem with the head of one of the small screws snapping off and that was my fault using a drill to run them down.

A few more packages showed up today so the axles are ready to be reassembled with the Incision spools and Beeftubes and Vanquish products including a panhard kit.

Decided to go with a dark gray on the cage to offset the black body panels that came with.

Got it back to roller condition except for the rear wheels. I heard the cross pins for the hexes hit the floor but have somehow disappeared. Looks like a trip to the local hobby shop in Cookeville.

I really like the cms and panhard kit from Vanquish. It goes together very smoothly.

Ran down to the lhs and picked up some new hexes for the rear and bought one of the Traxxas battery hold kits to do the hood pin mod and had Dean's put on the esc and bullet conectors put on the motor. Tomorrow will be wiring day. Still waiting a radio I purchased from a member and then it will be good to go.
