And here's a 10min video of me attempting to crawl with a Wraith that's not setup to crawl. (See previous posts for how its setup)
So if you have some time to kill or need a laugh, press play.

Your right, It does not do well at crawling duties, but looks sweet while it was trying! I really like the wheels and tire combo you added to it. How are you liking the EZ-run system? I did not see you really open it up. Wheel speed could have been helpful on some of those accents. :wink:

Haha...thanks!

Yea, the tractor 2.2 tires are just awesome.
The Hobbywing ESC is great. Tons of adjustibility, easy setup and silky smooth operation and so far has taken everything I've thrown at it and hasn't broken a sweat. It's rated for 4s but I only run 3s and it hardly gets warm. That entire run I was barely on the throttle at all. It has so much grunt I have the punch control set at 5 just so it doesn't do a backflip with a hard jab of the gas. Wide open the Wraith just flies. This is my 2nd Hobbywing ESC and I'm nothing but impressed. One downside is that it will not run a sensored motor but since I don't do much crawling it's not an issue for me. But with that said, it want to try this same spot again with a smaller pinion and put the locker back in the front axle and see how I do. The Tacon motor is very smooth for being sensorless.

My new rear sway bar mount.
This works much better than the ball-end-pop-on thing.

New Power!
My first sensored setup. I wanted the same power but the ability to do some crawling so I figured I'd get some new goodies for the Wraith.
Everything fit in nice. Since I already had things dremeled down to fit the Tacon motor, the 550 S-Pro4 motor slipped right in and I had just enough room to plug in the sensor. I opted for a small 12t pinion to slow things down a bit and gain some throttle control when running 3s. I only gave it a shakedown run so far but man is it silky smooth. Plenty of slow moving control.

I decided it was time to install a BEC and while I had everything torn apart I figured it was a good time to put on my new rock lights.
These little LED's are impressive!
Here's what they look like in my basement with the lights off. This is going to make night driving a lot of fun. :P
