For experienced hobbyists, about 12 hours depending on paint time. For new guys, 16+. If you're new, I recommend buying the RTR (ready to run) version and learning as you go. It will be easier and more fun.

The Axial Wraith is bad ass. Here's one I built for Larry McRae (owner of Poison Spyder) complete with TrailReady Beadlocks and a JK body to mirror his full sized KOH car. The windshield has since been removed and decals added to look more like the real thing.

Looks great Boosted! I think I may have to get me some of those 2.2 trailready HDs, they're not too much, $30/corner on his site.

I have a smaller spur gear I'm gonna throw on there. Running 12/64 right now, but have a 54. I could also bump up to a bigger pinion but spur gears are only 3 bucks.

When I was younger it was the time from when the package arrived until I went to bed. Putting together a brand new RC kit was like a drug, you couldn't sleep until it was done.

Personally, I recommend newbies buy a kit, and build it per the instructions. Most instructions are pretty good, and when it's time to repair or upgrade, you already know how it works.

I bought mine a few weeks ago, and just finished it last saterday. Its a blast to drive on the rocks. I had to swap out the stock plastic shocks for some alimuinum one so it would articulate better. Also i need to gear it lower but its fun to have ALOT of wheel speed on the rock :rock:

No, he's a pretty busy guy, doesn't do any service stuff on 'em.... I'm sure there's someone here that would do it though for a few bucks or a bottle or something.

Have you tried doing it yourself? There is not much to it.

The front axle has inner C's, of sorts. The screws back out easily, that's what you see there. I used a fine thread screw and some locktite, shouldn't come out so easily now.

I let my little brother drive, he had it doing sideways wheelies in my parent's yard :roflmao: It's pretty good gearing right now on 4s. It can crawl and pull mad wheelies and still has decent top end. I need some small sway bars though.

I used to run nitro for years. I could probably do it for a little bit on the side. :brows:
