    So here is what the frame and Wraith axles look like with 2.2 Rok Lox. the muffler was cut and glued into place also.

    The front bumper is what will tie all of the front end together.

    I removed the bumper hoops and added tow shackles.

    I'm looking at ideas for the roll gage.

    Light weight and strong. This should help keep it from being top heavy.

    I ordered 100lbs Braided Kevlar Line String for Fishing Camping Hiking Survival. I need it for the new winch. the stuff it comes with doesn't hold up to the power this thing offers.
    .08mm diameter 200 ft. so I have a lot of extra.
    This is the set up I'm using for the winch. wireless remote running on 3s lipo stashed under the dashboad



    To make this fit I had to change the hood hinges to a piano hinge. It should look more scale this way.

    I bet no one can figure out what I fixed in these pictures. No it's not the paint on the roll cage. there are two things that have been done.

    If your looking at the dash you can see what looks like a stereo mounted to the dash.
    That is the power switch between the 3s lipo and the remote controller so that I don't have to worry about the power being on when not in use.

    Looks great bud :2thumbs:
    can you post up what you'll do as to modifying the axles?
    like what parts will you use to do that...[/quote]I added GPM CVD's in the front I also used HR hubs and GPM stub ends on the front. In the rear I found some HD axles and some aluminum bearing carriers. That is all that was done.

    I did some more detail to the engine bay. I added battery cables and fan belts. I also added a crank pulley to get the look needed.
    Check out the esc power switch!

    I had a big roll on large rock that caused a lot of damage. I should have not taken any short cuts with this build as it cost me dearly!
    This is what it caused and this is what I'm doing to fix it. I will do another build and this will be added as well as earth magnets to keep the hood down. I have them on order from China. I should have waited. I will be doing the repairs and some beefing up of the roll cage to make sure that It fairs better than this last wreck. The sad part is the camera recording this went dead and so I don't have any footage of it.

    So this is some of the beefing up that I should have done during the build. I is also something I will do on the next build that just took 15 minutes to make start to finish.


    Having a frame mounted roll cage is the ultimate in safety and keeping things intact. It is simple to do and a oversight that I shouldn't have over looked.

    I'm using a thick quick dry epoxy. I will smooth out the repair and paint after 24hrs then I will pull the cage and beef up the mounting points in the rear.

    Hopefully the base of the cage is the strongest point after this.

    I got the parts I needed to get the repairs done. I still need the magnets to keep the hood down though.
    I also got the winch line (100 LBS Kevlar) in and installed. About 12 ft of line was installed.

    I drilled a hole in the transmitter to give me a place to hang the winch controller.

    Here is another repair I'm working on to the front end.
    It's a 2 part epoxy that is very thick past that set up in 5 minutes time.
