    Tommy R's Wraith

    There are many like it, but this one is mine.

    I took delivery of this thing early in the week, but haven't had chance to mess with it 'til last night. I don't plan on getting radical with it, but I'm not naive enough to believe that. :ror: Immediate plans call for a real servo (Hitec 7950) powered by a BEC, some necessary drivetrain/steering upgrades, 3s, and a new body with a DMG roof panel. Eventual plans call for a stout motor, rear steer, servo winch, etc.

    Here it is stock. Servo and DMG roof panel are pictured in front.


    First round of "mods". :lmao: CAC's with Ripsaws from my old Bronco and the roof panel installed.


    As it sits right now. Anyone interested in the stock wheels/tires or radio from this thing? If so, PM me. :mrgreen:

    Stock Wraiths are boring. So I'm trying to make mine just slightly less boring. :mrgreen: I'm also in the process of replacing/relocating some of the electronics. Need to get the battery under the hood.

    Thanks, Cory!

    The bulk of the body trimming is done. I also installed the Hitec 7950 which should be plenty enough to turn the stock steering linkage into pretzels. I mocked up all of the electronics and it looks like all will fit under the hood for now. Things will change later when I add a winch, but I need to get it up and running for a comp this weekend.
