The Official SBG Axial Wraith Build Off
This July the Scale Builder’s Guild members eagerly anticipated the release of our new Wraith. Not just to tear into the box and get out on the trails but because they wanted in on the SBG Axial Wraith Build Off. We challenged builders to start customizing the Wraith showing how versatile the truck is and give people innovative ideas on how to make their new rigs stand out in a crowd!
The rules were simple, everyone would be starting with the same RTR Wraith, keep original driveline, 75% or more of the factory Cage, and keep interior panel/seats intact. The balance of the truck and design was up to the builders, by adding body mods, scale accessories, paint, tires and wheels… it turned into a really fun contest over the summer. It really showed how versatile the Wraith platform really is and brought out some innovative ideas on how to make yours stand out from the crowd!
Outside of our people’s choice voting from the Scale Builder’s Guild members, representatives from Axial, MaxAmps, RC Car Action and TGN Distributing took care of the official judging.
Results are as follows:
Axial’s Favorite Mod Prize – PardonmynOOb’s Wraith – The upper cage modification completely changes the look of the truck and requires no extra parts to pull the look off… INCREADIBLE BANG FOR THA BUCK!
