Axial Wraith 1/10 Electric 4WD Rock Racer Kit

Sep 20, 2011 1 Comment by

Axial has now released their popular Wraith as a kit. For all the details on this new kit, please read the press release below:

The Wraith™ kit is an unassembled version of the Wraith™ RTR. It includes upgraded components which make the Wraith™ kit a solid platform, ready for your electronics, allowing you to build a Wraith™ for your driving style.

The Wraith™ 1/10th Scale Electric 4WD Rock Racer is another “FIRST” for Axial with the first and most realistic full tube-frame chassis design that is manufactured with high strength composite materials. The Wraith™ is built to go fast and is NOT JUST A LOW SPEED ROCK CRAWLER.

The Axial Wraith™ changes the game with its impressive 1:1 scale looks, high-speed monster truck “bashability,” and technical “crawl” capabilities. The Wraith™ is the most versatile vehicle satisfying the needs of a wide range of enthusiasts!

The realistic looks, drivability and ready-to-run ease make this vehicle the perfect blank canvas for the enthusiast looking for a vehicle to build upon. The Wraith™ can go in so many directions; desert sand, mountain trail runner, rock racer, mud bogger and any form of backyard bashing that can be dreamed up!

AXIAL AR60 OCP-AXLE™ (OFF CENTER PUMPKIN DESIGN)

True 4-wheel drive locked differentials are included for improved traction and an offset pumpkin provides more ground clearance and a better driveshaft angle. Additionally, the rear axle has been shaved of any unnecessary items and steering linkages that normally stick down have been removed for as much ground clearance as possible. The AR60 OCP-Axle™ is constructed from high strength composite material which has a low flex rate but is not as brittle as standard glass filled nylon. The AR60 OCP-Axle™ tubes are reinforced and beefed up with a boxed-in axle truss to distribute stress over a larger area. The combination of our axles and a true 4-link suspension gives you optimal performance for any terrain with the look of a real 1:1 vehicle. A locked differential provides the most positive wheel traction in all off-road environments and conditions and requires less maintenance over oil-filled or silicone based differentials. These are easily serviced by removing four screws to gain access for rebuilding and performance tuning as well.

UNIVERSAL JOINT AXLES

Our universal joint axles increase steering angle by 10 degrees over the stock dogbone/drive cup setup and provide smoother action for a higher performing, efficient drivetrain. The universal is oversized; a design you’d see on 1/8 scale vehicles, and it’s made of hardened steel so it’s capable of handling extreme power.

WB8 WILD BOAR™ DRIVESHAFTS

Metal to metal universal joint driveshaft system with splined plastic slider. This design provides more durability than traditional driveshaft designs because it uses a screw shaft for a more positive lock to the output shaft.

  • Constant Velocity Joint Design [CVJ]
  • Full Metal-To-Metal Construction for the CVJ-Housing
  • Friction Free Movement / Smooth Articulation
  • Metal Ring Protection & Capture for the CVJ-Pin
  • “Tough-as-Tusk” Durability
  • Easy Assembly & Maintenance.

4-LINK SUSPENSION

The suspension geometry utilizes a 4-Link design which is optimized to reduce axle steer and to have the proper amount of anti-squat and roll characteristics. The 4-Link system also aids against suspension wrap-up in high power applications. The lower suspension links are machined from aluminum to reduce flex and provide precise control over the roughest terrain. Measuring 7×87.5mm, these 7mm oversized diameter aluminum tubes are threaded at both ends for easy assembly and make for a durable 4-link suspension.

TUNED SHOCK SPRINGS

Finding the right spring rate can be tough. Axial made it easy for you by including what we found to be the right balance of high speed and harsh terrain handling. The softer spring rate keeps the Wraith™ on course and ready for your next obstacle!

SLIPPER CLUTCH

Allows the motor to work more efficiently and greatly enhances the durability of the drivetrain allowing the transmission to slip in hard binds.

SPUR GEAR COVER

The protective transmission spur gear cover helps keep dirt and debris out of your pinion and spur gear for a quiet and efficient drivetrain.

ALL HEX HARDWARE

All hex hardware for easy assembly. No Philips screwdrivers required!

FULL TUBE FRAME CHASSIS

The most realistic high strength composite tube frame chassis on the market. Our high strength composite plastic is impact resistant to help protect the Wraith™ from crash damage.

BATTERY TRAY

Battery tray for Standard Stick Pack and LiPo Packs
Battery: 7.2v Stick Pack/2S LiPo Pack up to 47x150x28mm (W x L x D) in size. No disassembly or tools needed to remove and replace the battery.

DURABLE SKIDPLATE

The skidplate protects the transmission and other critical components while providing a flat surface to help the Wraith™ slide over rocks or other obstacles.

CORBEAU® LG1 RACE SEATS

Axial is a firm believer in delivering only the best for their clients, and are proud to offer the 1/10 scale officially licensed Corbeau® LG1 racing seats. The Axial / Corbeau® LG1 scale seats are fully functional with a unique to the market reclining ability! Accent decals included.

LIGHT BUCKETS

The Wraith™ kit includes the added bonus of 14 light buckets! (7 different styles. LED’S not included). Light buckets hold either 5mm or 3mm LED lights. (Our optional LED light system: AX24257 Simple LED Controller will get you set up with four lights up front and two in the rear.) For the ultimate light setup, try our NVS (AX24251 Night Vision Systep) which includes a wide variety of lights and a system for controlling them.

2.2 RIPSAW™ TIRES

R35 COMPOUND

The aggressive tread design, impressive ground clearance, and R35 compound offer a realistic look for the image-conscious scale crawler who is also looking to improve their performance game.

  • Realistic and aggressive tread design for the ultimate scale appearance and performance
  • 5.5″ (140mm) tall for extreme ground clearance
  • Molded ribbing between the lugs help keep mud and snow from packing into the tire tread
  • Recessed lugs for additional traction
  • “R35″ sticky rubber compound (white dot)

2.2 RACELINE RENEGADE WHEELS

Raceline is by far the most popular wheel for extreme duty off-roading. Their ability to stand up to the abuse demanded by the full-size racer and their show quality finish is second to none. Axial is proud to announce the officially licensed Raceline Renegade wheel as standard equipment on the Axial Wraith™. The Raceline Renegade gives the Wraith™ that authentic racing look as well as providing the strength to handle whatever you can dish out!

  • 12mm hex mount
  • Reinforced with additional material and ribbing for extra durability

VERTICALLY MOUNTED ESC

The ESC is held in place vertically by a secure, clip-in style plastic mounting system just behind the radio box. Facing the rear of the truck helps keep debris and water away from the ESC. Two mounts are included to mount a variety of popular, standard sized ESC’s. NOTE: ESC not included.

WATERPROOF RECEIVER BOX

Protects the receiver from dust and debris and is waterproof for the ultimate in weather protection.

AX90020 – $299.00
