Axial's New Super Bad Truck

Yeeee-Haaaaw! Many Americans have an inner redneck. The part that likes Coors and Four-by-fours, talking country and eating pork. I do. I quit drinking but I love my 4X4! Roads are an option and I will park it on your front lawn. I ain't scared! Like I ain't got a compound bow in there. What does this have to do with RC? E'rethang! At least now that they have such awesome and realistic trucks and parts out. My Redcat RS10 is my go to truck. So much so I have not started or finished building any of my other trucks. This one looks like it might be able to out do my truck. Look at it and lust after it. Mind the price too because it won't be too expensive either!

This is the Axial Wraith™ 1/10 Scale Electric 4WD Rock Racer Kit, part #AX90020. The Wraith™ is an unassembled kit featuring our AR60 OCP-Axles™ (Off Center Pumpkin design), 2.2 Ripsaw R35 compound tires on black 8-spoke Raceline Renegade wheels, a waterproof receiver box, optimized steering geometry for stability at high speeds, threaded competition shocks with softer springs, realistic composite tube frame chassis and more! The Wraith™ is designed to handle a wide variety of terrain including high speed wide open desert, forest trails and extreme crawling. The Wraith™ is a true all-terrain vehicle that goes anywhere you want, making it fun wherever you go.

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. 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 our axles and a true 4-link suspension gives you optimal performance for any terrain with the look of a real 1:1 vehicle.

4-Link Suspension
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.

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 Composite Chassis
The most realistic high strength composite tube frame chassis on the market. Our high strength composite plastic is impact resistant to help protect the Wraith™ from crash damage.

Assembled with all hex hardware.

Corbeau® LG1 Licensed Race Seats
Fully licensed Corbeau® LG1 race seats add to the scale realism of the already highly detailed interior set.
AE-2 ESC with Drag Brake
The Axial AE-2 ESC was developed in partnership with Castle Creations and features LiPo cutoff, drag brake for tough crawling situations, a Tamiya style plug connector and is programmable via Castle Link™ (Castle Link™ not included).

Lighting 6 LED’s with Extra Light Buckets
The Simple LED Controller connects to the receiver and is turned on/off with the main power switch of the truck. There are four white LED’s for the front and two red LED’s for the rear. Additional light buckets are also included for custom looks.

Protective Transmission Spur Gear Cover
Helps keep dirt and debris out of your pinion and spur gear for a quiet and efficient drivetrain.

Slipper Clutch
Allows the motor to work more efficiently and greatly enhances the durability of the drivetrain allowing the transmission to slip in hard binds.
2.4GHz Radio System
The AX-2 2.4GHz transmitter is a two channel pistol grip radio with servo reversing switches for steering and throttle, trim dials for fine tuning steering and throttle centers and a battery indicator light that lets you know when your transmitter batteries run low. The AR-2 2.4GHz receiver uses no crystals so you’ll experience worry free driving with no frequency conflicts. It’s lightweight, compact in size and the bind button with LED indicator makes set-up easy!

Waterproof Radio Box
Protects the receiver from dust and debris and is waterproof for the ultimate in weather protection.

Easy Diff Access
A locked differential will provide the most positive wheel traction in all off-road environments and conditions. The locked differential also provides less maintenance over oil-filled or silicone based differentials. Easily serviced by removing four screws to gain access for maintenance, rebuilding and performance tuning.
Battery Tray for Standard Stick Pack and LiPo Packs
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.

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. These shocks are also upgradable with a variety of aluminum options to further increase suspension performance.

On/Off Switch
Conveniently located under the dash.
2.2 Rebel™ Wheels and Ripsaw™ Tires
Ripsaw tires are mounted and pre-glued to 8-spoke Rebel 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. The Rebel wheels are made from a strong composite material which is both lightweight and durable.

20T Motor
Tear up the terrain, be it flat out desert, rocky roads or crawling! Easy operation: no tuning, no fuel, no loud exhaust noise. Just plug’n'go! Our design allows for optional 550 size motors to fit as well.

AX30793 Dig Upgrade Set (not included)
The Wraith™ transmission is easily upgradable for Dig (patent pending) function which, when installed, gives you a three function transmission. The transmission also includes all steel outputs. The optional Dig Upgrade Set for the Wraith™ comes with servo linkage, slider parts and a new output shaft. When installed you have 4×4, 4×2 (freewheel) and Dig (rear locked). This aids in extreme climbs and descents and turning a tight radius. (not included – extra servo and three channel radio system also required).
