    Hey guys. My Wraith arrived yesterday so today I set about hiding the ugly paint scheme. Hope you like it. I only changed two wheels when I took these so I could get comparisons. Still waiting on the narrow light bar.

    Looks good, nice mods! Those wheel and tire combination look really scale!

    I am liking how taking off the roof and adding a different paint scheme gives it a totally different look.

    Pretty sick Wraith, Are you leaving just the hood orange or are you doing a total repaint on all of it? Cool set up man!

    Thanks. That was definately the plan with those wheels. I liked these when I first saw promo vids of them but always new I'd repaint! So many ways to alter the look.

    Thanks mate.

    Thanks a lot man. Interco Super Swamper 1.9 TSL/Bogger Scale Tires . . . they were the tallest 1.9s I could find for these rims.

    Thanks bro. A good face lift after owning it for only one afternoon! Yeah cool rims hey? Had to have em even if they are a little smaller than the factory ones. They are Tarantula 1.9 Internal Beadlock Wheels from RC4WD.

    Glad you like it mate. In my mind the hood would be composite or fibreglass so it will stay painted orange (my favourite colour, easy to see when you look at my Youtube vids - russelleden1) and I'm hoping to make new side panels from alumimium instead of just looking like it. RPM light bar on it's way. Probably add a few performance stickers on the side panels.
