Thank you Thank you Thank you

I will try to make you proud! The renderings look so amazing. The white frame is so glossy it looks like I should be wearing 3-D glasses to get the whole effect!

I can't wait to see pics of what the semi drops off.

It's sad how many rigs I have built and how few I actually keep for myself. I tend to sell them to build the next big thing. I really think this one will be one of the few I will keep around. I can't wait to see where you go with this business. It truly is endless!!!

Not sure of course. I have to print the new versions and functionally test them first. It shouldn't be too much longer.

Anyone have any other chassis you would like to see, barring a southern buggy... Not ready to go there just yet.

How about the gmade r1? Also me chev where talkin about you need to make 1/20 versions so people can run the miniclaws and widen axles. Also it would be a hell of a lot easier to fit electronics in it......

How about like a scaler chassis but just the frame and then like a tube section for the rear? Then who ever buys it can use the cab of any model pickup they would like and make a truggy.

idk if my description makes sense

like this but more badass and instock

I like your idea too but the Jim's first tuber looks a lot like this or is it just me?

A idea seeing your mini wraith which I'd love to get my hands on but is it theoretically possible to make a vacuum mold set for the wraith panels for that chassi? also making micro versions of the light kit axial made (if at all possible)

Chassi suggestions

Micro TLT-1 (just cause tlt-1! I know tahts a easy chassi as it is >.>)
Micro Gmade R1 chassis
Micro HPI wheely king chassis
Micro to scale monster truck chassis
Micro Axial exo terra buggy cage (would need to figure solid axle mounting but still the wraith an exo look killer!)

Micro ultra 4? somehow hybrid between a micro ralley IFS front end with mrc or sumo rear axle? I dunno about gear ratios

If i could get my hands on that mini wraith chassi i'd be looking high an low for some none worm drive axles to rock in that thing with a novak three 80 18.5!

Also.. possibly make a motor mount plate option for the wraith chassi to use a traxxas 1/16 gear box if so desired?

on a question on the 3D printer can you print clear stuff?

I was also thinking of an exo kit for the rally or sct and a exo or buggy type kit for the rwd micro baja t and desert truck!!!

The 1/16 gearbox is just too big, also it uses larger outputs for the driveshafts.

Can I send you a CAD file? I have a chassis in process and should have the model done today or tomorrow. I may make them out aluminum but I have a part that may be cheapest out of a printer.

Thanks for the ideas. Mastergraphics is still here. My 3500HD MAX is the first one being installed anywhere. It doesn't work and they ordered a main board for it. When it gets here they will come back and replace the board and give it another go. :(

Kinda cool to get the first one, kinda sucks it doesn't work. lol

It sure is big and shiny though...
