The Wraith™ Spawn includes a number of features that are either waterproof or water resistant. Do not run your product in water or snow or submerge it in water without fully waterproof gear. More information about waterproofing can be found here: http://www.axialracing.com/blog_posts/6067
The Wraith™ Spawn is ready for rock spitting, dirt slinging, action. It’s designed to tackle the rocks with ease and blast across open desert at full attack speed. The bottom line, the Wraith™ is tough as nails and prepared for any terrain.
The Wraith™ Spawn 1/10th Scale Electric 4WD Rock Racer features a 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 Wraith™ Spawn includes a realistic driver figure complete with a race suit and three interchangeable helmets. A motocross, open skull-face or motorsport version of the helmet are included. Choose your favorite style! And, the Spawn body is compatible with Wraith, AX10 and SCX10 chassis.
For this project, Axial wanted to create a body that had a classic feel with modern styling. Just as we have seen in the use of retro designs in the auto industry, with cars like the Dodge® Challenger, we have also seen off-roaders use classic trucks in modern builds. To implement this idea, our Design and Marketing teams brainstormed and discussed some of our favorite trucks and SUVs from the late-70s and early-80s. Taking those vehicles into consideration, the Design team then studied the iconic styling cues of these vehicles and began sketching ideas. As a result, we developed those ideas and created a unique retro styled Axial SUV body – the Spawn.
The Axial 2.2 Ripsaw™ tire offers both a realistic and aggressive tread design for the ultimate scale appearance and performance.
Officially licensed Method 12 spoke beadlock wheels dressed in an aggressive all black style are easy to assemble and they work with most 2.2 tires. The hub design allows this wheel to mount to any Wraith, AX10 Ridgecrest or SCX10. Our IFD™ (Interchangeable Face Design) wheel system makes it easy to dress it up with a new look.• Three piece beadlock design
• Utilizes new 2x11mm pins for added strength
• Updated plastic hub adapter to eliminate slop and capture the new 2x11mm pin
• Adjustable breather holes for fine tuning tire performance
• Compatible with most 2.2 tires
• Easy six screw disassembly
The WB8 HD front and rear driveshafts features an updated design with a larger diameter cross pin (2x11mm) along with an M4 Screw Shaft (2mm hex drive) for added strength. A center splined slider floats between each end and features added material which reduces flex and fatigue.• 3-piece driveshaft with strengthened slider-floater tube.
• Increased surface at the connection between the ball joints and output shaft tubes.
• 2x11mm cross pin adds 25% more surface area providing more strength for the ball joint.
• Captured cross pin design eliminates older set screw design for more durability and easy maintenance.
The waterproof receiver box utilizes three different silicone seals: one for the antenna, one for the servo wires (includes three slots for three channels), and one acts as a gasket for the receiver box cover. No more stress when running in mud, water, or snow!
Our dual slipper design uses a pad on each side of the spur gear for added surface area. This allows for more precise tuning and holding power. The spur gear features strong, 32 pitch gearing for high torque applications.
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. 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.
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.
Finding the right spring rate can be tough. Axial made it easy for you by including what we found to be the right balance of high speed and harsh terrain handling. The softer spring rate keeps the Wraith™ on course and ready for your next obstacle!
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.
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.
AE-5 ESC, WATERPROOF
The Axial AE-5 ESC is 3S LiPo capable yet easily switched “in the field” between LiPO and NiMh battery types with a simple jumper – no more complex procedures.
• Jumper 1 provides a simple plug and play choice between LiPo or NiMh.
• Jumper 2 switches Drag Brake settings.
• Waterproof design with waterproof On/Off switch / standard plug / laser etched heat sink.
3-CHANNEL 2.4GHz RECEIVER
The AR-3 2.4 GHz receiver uses no crystals so you’ll experience worry free driving with no frequency conflicts. This lightweight, compact, and bind button equipped receiver with LED indicator makes setup easy!
2.4GHz RADIO FOR WORRY-FREE DRIVING
The AX-3 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. The battery indicator light also lets you know when your transmitter batteries run low.
WATER RESISTANTThe included Tactic TSX45 metal gear servo is rated at 151 oz-in of torque for massive turning power and dual ball bearings provide smooth and precise movement for the metal gear train.
Helps keep dirt and debris out of your pinion and spur gear for a quiet and efficient drive train.
