Here are some pics of my ifs wraith. I did it with the front of a Hobbyking trooper and it's turned out nicely. This is my second wraith, I sold my first one off after trail running was getting too easy. A friend of mine decided to sell his ridgecrest so I bought it and converted it to a wraith for this project. With all of this 'yeti' talk, it got me thinking about an ifs wraith and with a trooper just laying around, it seemed like a great rig to build.

It's running an scx10 tranny with all metal gears, (sounds beefy), axial ae-2 esc, two hi-tech servos front and back. I ordered as 'basten's rear-steer module' and it's really cool, exactly what this rig needed. It let's you select your steering of front steer only, rear only, front and rear and crab. I've only had time to have it out on the trail twice but it's a blast to drive.

Someone needs to revive this thread because I know there are many Wraith people out there!

Nice! I sold my first wraith and had to get another. I did get bored with it and that's what brought upon the IFS conversion project.

Yeah, I really didn't know of the differences in the bodies if there is much, Im pretty sure the guts are basically the same,
from the looks, I'd say Axial updated some problem areas, from what I read from years of forum talk.

Yes

They did new ae5 ESC stronger plastic. Yea that's the best wraith I would say I'm not crazy about the body tho.

Original Front bumper was landing on servo horn, Everything looks mounted right though.

Anyone else had that happen?.

First attempt at a bumper build.

Several servo gears trashed running an aluminum horn, Savox,Hitec,Traxxas,
Anyone else tear up servo gears with this setup? Running servo saver now.
