    Default lowering the Front of my Wraith.?

    Hey guys

    I got this Wraith from the guy for like almost Nothing & have been messing with it & I have done some upgrades.
    Vanquish Steering, Vanquish Links & front Hubs. I also flipped the rear shock mount & moved the Battery up front length wise not sideways. I moved the ESC to the rear battery tray its waterproofed Receiver as well & servo.! I love the look of this Truck but the front is way to high.? I also added Axial Bead locks & 2.2 Swampers with a Bit of weight added to each wheel.! I have a scx10 as well with just about the same things done but this Lifted & had to trim the Body for the 2.2 Swampers, the thing weights like over 8 pounds with the added weights & relocating the twin 11.1 volt lipos to the Sides lowering my CG huge.! I am so very impressed by what this truck can do Vertically so I am looking for the same results with this Wraith.

    Any tips or Pics wold be Great on how to lower the front on this Wraith with out loosing articulation.? I like it so far but Its sure not an scx10 for it workability, Hopefully the usability will make up for that.! lol


    Thanks in advance & Cheers to all

    You mentioned you flipped the rear shock mounts, but did you also flip the front mounts? Pictures would help.

    You can certainly flip the shock/link mounts in the front.

    Are we talking about the same piece? The little link mount that's mounted to the axle? Comes off just like the rear.

    You could always droop or semi droop (with internal springs) the setup.. but that's not good for high speeds. There are many pro's and con's from this.. as people will tell you.
