Axial Racing Wraith RTR
1:10th Scale Electric 4WD Rock Racer
This is an Axial Racing Wraith RTR 1:10th Scale Electric 4WD Rock Racer. The Wraith™ Ready-to-Run 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 for your Wraith. 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 Axial axles and a true 4-link suspension gives you optimal performance for any terrain with the look of a real 1:1 vehicle.
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.
HIGH PERFORMANCE SHOCKS
Axial competition style shocks feature threaded shock bodies for tuning and easy pre-load adjustment, 3.5mm titanium nitride coated shock shafts for reduced lateral movement, silicone diaphragms for a more consistent feel and silicone bushings to prevent binding.
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.
WB8 SPLINED DRIVESHAFT
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.
ALL HEX HARDWARE
Completely assembled with all hex hardware. No Philips screwdrivers required!
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.
CORBEAU® LG1 RACE SEATS
Fully licensed Corbeau® LG1 race seats add to the scale realism of the already highly detailed interior set.
2.2 RIPSAW™ TIRES
Ripsaw™ tires are mounted and pre-glued to 8-spoke Raceline Renegade Wheels right from the factory. The Axial 2.2 Ripsaw™ tire offers both a realistic and aggressive tread design for the ultimate scale appearance and performance.
VERTICALLY MOUNTED ESC
The AE-2 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.

EASY DIFF ACCESS
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.
OPTIMIZED STEERING GEOMETRY
The front axle steering geometry is engineered for high speed performance with close attention to maximum pivot angle, minimal scrub, adjustable castor and Ackerman set as close to 0-degrees as possible. This geometry theory achieves a desired tight turning radius with locked differentials and better steering control at high speeds.
FULL TUBE FRAME CHASSIS
The most realistic high strength composite tube frame chassis on the market. Axial's high strength composite plastic is impact resistant to help protect the Wraith™ from crash damage.
SIMPLE LED CONTROLLER
Six LED lights are included: 4 white LED lights for the front and two red LED lights for the rear. Axial also includes the added bonus of 14 included light buckets! (7 different styles. LED’S not included). Light buckets hold 5mm and 3mm lights and come with realistic plastic lenses.
The power switch is conveniently located under the dash.
The skidplate protects the transmission and other critical components while providing a flat surface to help the Wraith™ slide over rocks or other obstacles.
2.2 RACELINE RENEGADE WHEELS
Pre-mounted 2.2 Raceline Renegade Wheels with 12mm hex mount which is reinforced with additional material and ribbing. Finished in a two-tone Black/Chrome scheme for great looks.
