    Hey guys! I was thinking about building something that is totally unique, a 4 seater Axial Wraith. :haveaniceday:So everyone has seen the average Wraith:

    But, I have an Idea for a 4 seater Wraith using 2 Wraith frames::want:

    For my truck it would be like this in the back though:

    I think this would be cool to try. You would have to cut the frames and re-attach them with plastic weld I think. The transmisson would be a little harder. Either you would use one tranny or I was thining or using 2 trannys, one for each axle. Four wheel steering would be nice so that the truck would turn better. I did some measuring on my Wraith and adding an extra cab would add 5 inches to the body causing the truck's wheelbase to go from 13.5ish inches to a whopping 19ish inches! the truck would be about 25 inches long! This is why four wheel steering would be nice. Tell me what you guys think!:)

    Very cool looking. My vote is for the fast back body as well. Very sharp.

    Ok I talked with some guys on SBG and they said that I can't plastic weld the frames together. I will have to drill holes and use screws. I could modd the roof and probably use two skidplates to mount the two frames together. The custom body panels will cover up anything odd on the sides of the truck, and same for the roof.

    I can also see another fault with this awesome idea.... Ramp Over.
    Being a Long wheel base, there is a fair amount of distance between the front wheels and the rear..
    Whilst I reckon it would be awesome in mud and sand... it would probably be rubbish on rocks..

    Reduce the amount of foot space between the front and rear seats and pull your c pillars forward slightly and increase your rear overhang and youll reduce your wheelbase. Keep the fastback idea tho

    What will happen is I will add the extra cab, but possibly make 4 wheel steering so that the truck turns better. Whatever happens tho I'm definatly sticking with this look for the back;

    For joining the frame tubes back together, cut some tubes to slip over the joints and put pins through them.

    I have a chassis with a broken rear end I might be willing to send off for the right price... had to chop it where the shock towers screwed in as the shock towers ripped out of the "tube"

    Ur idea inspired me & I'm going to take on the challenge, I've already talked to a company about making a four seater metal roll cage. I've got it posted on here titled "Project - XS" Thanks for posting the pics, they gave me a good starting point. :) I was actually just online working out what gearing I'm going to need for it. Four inch tires are a pretty big difference from stock. lol.
