So i ordered a VP CMS kit to go with the VP panhard kit that came with the wraith (brand new in the wrapper)

Decided to put on the VP front and rear truss' and get the panhard setup on so when the cms kit comes, most of the work is done, right?

Wrong...this wraith has a MG200 steel bumper and from VP's CMS/panhard install video's, those kits are for the stock plastic front bumper.

Damnit, ill take the panhard bracket off tomorrow.

Anyone looking for a wraith VP CMS and Panhard kit?

Nah, its cool. After reading more about the VP CMS and panhard, people have issues using them if they lower the wraith.

I ground the crap out of the vp cms mount to get it to work with my mg200 front clip.

Don't quite get full compression with the vp cms/panhard but it work well enough at the cliffs TTC we had...

I run the vp cms with panhand, top cad bumper and lowering kit. My suspension travel is horrible really my entire front end set up needs helps. Lots of good parts its just not set up well.

Fun day so far. Very muddy out here from yesterday's rain.





I found two awesome hills for the hill climb, I don't know how we missed them. If you go across the creek from the parking lot, keep going straight about 100' or so. There right there. Even closer than our other one. It looks to be challenging but not from being super steep... Here's some pics of them.





Believe me, the pictures don't do them justice.

Anybody need a set of SCX10 Axles, SCX10 tranny and MIP Shafts before I list them? Aluminum CHubs and Knuckles but not sure on the rest. I do have a new set of either Felsenet lockers for them.

They are. Never used as far as I can remember. This was a build that I started over 18 months ago and never finished. The body work did me in. I also have a Dinky Woodsman Trailer to sell.

Big Red's Woodsman


I will list this stuff on Monday if none of NIRC are interested.
