Default Axial Honcho or Axial Wraith

I was sold on buying a Honcho and then the Wraith came out. Now I don't know what to get. I just want a rig to play around the house or down by the creek. So heres my question.

Which would you prefer/recommend? Pros/cons on both

If you are just going to bash then maybe the "Wraith". It seems very complete and durable for the $. Just need a battery and charger. It would be more capable then the Honcho stock. And it goes a bit faster which is nice for bashing. For more serious crawling, it is yet to be discovered how the Wraith will do. It has a nice wide stance and some decent tires stock. And nicely scale if your into comp looking rigs. Some people are not into them and want a normal vehicle based rig. So if that is the case then the Honcho would be a better bet. But out of the box as a basher, the Wraith looks hard to beat. If you want to build something ultra scale and 1:1 vehicle based (non tube buggy), then go Honcho.
Good luck either way!

Already had one Wraith and now i have a Honcho.

I consider the Honcho better than the Wraith as you can do some very nice things with it (its a very versatile rig) while the Wraith is as it looks...

I currently own both. They both are set up almost EXACTLY the same.
Both on 2.2's
Both have 3 oz added to each wheel.
Both have same ride height based on shock/suspension setup.
Same electronics too.
The wraith out-handles the Honcho at high speeds, and crawling.
For my needs, the Wraith just suits my driving style to a tee.
