Thanks to Luenhsing for helping me pick up a wraith.

Here is how she started:

Here is how it sits with the dynamic concepts rubi wraith roughed up. Installed a 35t integy motor with plans to move the battery up front accessed with a flip up hood, add an interior and driver. Fast back mod also completed.

My tiny 1.9 flat irons (and driving...) struggle to keep up with you guys! Agreed, Frank is awesome.

Going with black fenders, door panels and a few accents. Bought Tamiya krptonite green for the body. I like the "cap color", but will see once it warms up enough to get some paint on.

Thanks, can't wait for the weather to warm up a bit to see some paint on it!

Are you planning on keeping the sticky ripsaws? I'm running stock foams with mine and they work awesome, zero complaints.

I use the sticky ripsaws as well in my Wraith. I'm working on building a second Wraith, and I plan on using the same with stock foams too. One will be an all weather RC and the other dry.

I haven't had a chance to run the ripsaws outside yet, but they seem like they will do pretty well. The wraith seems like it will whip up on my scx10 on the rocks!

Yes, I agree with, after the first Wraith, I have fall in love with Wraith, and 2nd and 3rd came right after that. I have only one water proof, and rest are dry as well. Yes, Ripsaws are great tires on Wriath. Almost as good as the pitbull. :)

A few updates on the Wraith: added the interior, driver, soft top and painted body panels. Still waiting on my hinges to arrive to get the hood in place. The Kryptonite green paint doesn't look green on my cell phone pics, but didn't turn out to bad. Can't wait to give this thing a run at the next GTG!

Absolutely! Hinges arrived today with some smaller batteries to mount under the hood, so it should be road worthy soon!

The color turned out to be kind of a ganster ride color, changes with the angle and lighting,
