MattZilla / Axial Wraith U4RC Rig Reader’s Ride

MattZilla / Axial Wraith U4RC Rig Reader’s Ride

Mike Bowman runs this rig at R/C Excitement in New England, where he piloted his machine to a respectable third place finish at his first race and looks to keep improving. His MattZilla creation is far from stock, featuring a Vanquish Products Stage 1 kit for the Axial Wraith, steering links and hex hubs. The tranny comes from Robinson Racing and actuates MIP Wraith driveshafts. And the kit is held together with Team KNK stainless steel hardware. Damping duties are handled by Pro-Line PowerStroke shocks all the way around, which support Pro-Line’s Super Swamper 2.2 tires. Power is provided by a Trinity D3.5 17.5T brushless motor which is controlled by a Castle Creations Mamba Max Pro unit. A Savöx 1210 servo steers Mike’s rig, and his setup is controlled by a Futaba 4PLS radio system.
