My Wraith kit...

I picked up a Wraith kit a couple weeks ago. Still waiting on the electronics, beadlocks, and some other goodies to show up. Just finished the paint last night, here's the required "beer can flex" shot...

Nothing special, little Losi NC. Pretty much stock in this pic, since upgraded to a Hitec servo, Rovers and some home-brew brakeline links and hi-steer. My friends roached out Venom.

Some progress on my latest abomination. It's far from complete, but it's running at least. 3 link/track bar front, semi-triangulated 4 link rear, and soon will get a roll cage, body work, and paint.


Some body armor (also not complete yet)...

I've been getting into this recently....although, much like my 1:1, I tend to like more full bodied rigs, and less of the tube/crawlers.

I built the Rodeo body from styrene to match my DD and recently acquired SAS'd Rodeo. The paint is different, but the scale is close (tires aren't true scale as with most R/C cars)

SCX10 Honcho kit
Tekin Fxr
Hitec servo (don't recall which)
35T Tekin motor
Spektrum rx/tx







I also just picked up another scx10 with a JK unlimited body. I still need to go through it and clean/grease stuff, but another truck to play with is always good.

I should have just bought a RTR! I bought an Axial xr 10 moa like about 2 years ago and I enjoyed putting it together and put tires on it but I have yet to buy electronics for it cause I'm a newb and was blown away on how expensive it was going to be to actually get it running!!!

Then to top it off they came out with the Wraith RTR thats cheaper than my kit was! Rc looks way fun but Im already poor.

I picked up a kit XR that was already put together on the cheap thinking i could build a somewhat reasonable comp rig. $1200 later


Now I dont comp it and wish I had spent that $1200 on 2 scalers.
