    I'm not Cycon, but I guess I can answer your question All three parts will fit perfectly into centered axle housing for Wraith. I have exact same set of parts on my truck and it works just fine

    Yeah Fuel knows more about the wraith setup than I do, glad you got it figured out!

    But here's an update! Got the front FINALLY finished It now has 2 mounting spots on the front, 2 on the shock tower, and 4 on the chassis. Unless I need to fix a weld or add on a GoPro mount, all the welding is done!

    Haha, just wait till you see it after I actually take time and do the new body.. It's gonna look amazing. But the two things in the back are the fuel refill nozzles. I still have to fix them haha.

    Thanks Sean! It's got a nut behind each screw, so I can take it off if I need to. I was going to do the whole wide bumper and attach flap to it, but I changed my mind. It's much easier just doing it on the body.

    Ok great, that's good. Unlike the thread, the build guide pretty much sums up everything in a more condensed way. But the thread has a so much more info, plus comments from other guys to reference. So by reading through it you have an advantage haha. Where you gonna put your build thread?

    Been watching this video: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-s1JGFjzqUo and I'm still quite surprised as to how realistic your truck is in how it handles!

    Thanks man, I love that video. I think the biggest thing that helped me understand how mine should handle was me watching almost every single trophy truck video on youtube haha.

    Lol haha I've found myself spending more time on YouTube watching so many rc videos my mother would call pointless. YouTube has to be one of the best places for visual info, whether it's competent or not.

    Here's some onboard footage I uploaded last night.

    Does the understeer bug you or do you like it that way to slow it down in the corners? If your esc has a drag brake i'd put some in.

    No not really, I didn't really notice it until you brought it up haha. If anything I guess it helps keep the rear end from wanting to wash out.

    It's just a carbon fiber sticker wrap. You can find it on ebay. I'm gonna get some soon too.

    Thanks Zach. Like Sean said it's just carbon fiber vinyl.

    you should put a nut at the bottom of the floor triangle (in crappy red circle) and make the doors longer so it will help keep dirt out

    but anyways the trucks cage looks hella cool

    Thanks. I can't really do that though because I have to put the exhaust through there. Dirt doesn't get in there anyway so I'm fine leaving it open.

    Man I just finished reading the entire thread. This truck has come a long way, and just when I thought it couldn't get better, you would take it to the next level. I've been researching building one for a while and I think I have finally decided which route to go. I plan on building 2 chassis' over the next few months so we will see how that goes.

    Cool man, I know it's a feat to read the whole thing haha. But you're right, thing has come a looong way. I myself didn't think I could pull it off. But what kind of trucks you plan to build?

    Well when I was planning originally, I was going to use an SCX10 chassis and modify that with an I beam front suspension. BUt after reading all of this, Im making my own chassis similar to yours. I have access to a CNC, lathe and welder so we will see what comes of it. If it comes out half as good as yours id like to do a limited production run as a kit.

    Right now what im using is a Kyosho Ultima SC front end, Axial trans, and Wraith rear axle. Im going to build the cage and trailing arms. Right now what I have is a chassis plate mounted to the front and the servo mounted. Im waiting on my rear axle to come in for the rest of the mockup. Im using an AX-10 rear axle for now but its way too narrow (just for mockup though). For the power plant, Ill be running a Novak Ballistic 4.5T brushless system paired with a Mamba Max Pro. Its a hug motor so I have to modify the base plate to include a skid for the motor just in case.

    Im a heavy equipment mechanic in the Marine Corps. Im actually in the process of a medical separation, so im going to try to hammer as many out as I can. The first two will be for myself and my dad, everything after that we will see.

    Ive been in the RC world for about 5 years now. I started with an AX-10 and then converted it into an SCX-10. Bought a Tamiya TT-01E while I was in Okinawa as well as my Ultima SC. Sorry for the hijack XC. If you need any fabwork let me know and Ill see what my guys can do.

    This has to be the smoothest suspension I've ever seen in a RC. There frame seems to stay perfectly still when you are driving and your shocks absorb everything. The only time your frame seems to move is when you increase speed quickly and the front end lifts up a bit. Other than that it seems like every bump, even large ones where you go on and off the sidewalk, is completely absorbed and doesn't transfer past the shocks. Very impressive. The whole truck is impressive. Awesome job.
