Default New guy guy here need helping choosing crawler

I'm looking to purchase a rockcrawler. Can't decide if to get axial WRAITH or Dingo/honcho.
Any suggestions?

what are you looking to do with a crawler? wraith/scx is a night and day difference, scx is more scale looking, and the wraith is more speed crawling because its a rock racer, low turn brushless systems, 3s/4s lipos etc so it all depends on you and what you plan to do with one ive own 2 wraiths and 3 scx based crawlers and the difference is definitely clear, of course you can make an scx more of a rock racer and on the other hand you can make a wraith more of a crawler you can take it either way buy it'll cost ya

I did a search in this section, typed in "Wraith or Honcho" and got a lot of hits.
Also tried searching Honcho vs Wraith, and "What truck".

First few:

Axial wraith or scx10???? Newbie!!!!

2 pages of info on this one.
Honcho kit or Dingo kit?

and this one
what should i get wraith or honcho

looking for a good trail runner like the land rover d90 but not near as pricey

Just Discovered RcCrawling!


That being said, It depends on what you want to do really. I would go with scx-10 honcho for crawling/custom builds, and a wraith for bashing.

Thanks for info guys. I want just for crawling. For speed I have my slash. And now I also got a summit. I like the interior kit on wraith. But also like the scale looks. I know. I'll be getting a jeep wrangler body for my crawler

Having the same issue... Really like the slow speed crawling, love the Dingo "Land Rover-ish" look, but kids like the scale interior of the Wraith (I admit, I kinda do too). So it will end up being whatever is available when we pull the trigger...! ;) - signed, The Waffler

Ok so I purchased the dingo. I thought it had an interior. But it's a crapy lexan one. I'll see if I can find one to install. My dingo needs a driver!!!!

Ok, so I have a Wraith and a bunch of other stuff including an AX10 that's been turned into a scaler. The 1.9 gets stuck more often than the 2.2 truck, so take that into consideration. I have more fun driving the Wraith when I have more messy terrain. The 1.9 truck is great when it's more predictable and I know I won't get swallowed up by a big hole.
