Axial’s Muddy Wraith

By AR on Mar 08, 2011

So, I guess the word is out that we are releasing a new vehicle.While everyone is wanting it, “LIKE RIGHT NOW!!!,” we are still doing our initial playing, I mean testing. Did I say that out loud? And we have had our fair share of rain in Southern California that would make Dennis Anderson proud to host his Muddy Motorsports Park in our backyard!

So, for all you East Coast’ers – this one is for you! It was hard work trying to get all scalistic and paint all this mud on, so we just did it the authentic way and bashed it through the biggest mud holes we could find!

So how is that for a gallon of sweet tea?

    Wow looks great muddy! :) I had nothing to do with that, promise…

  2. Default_avatar Cody Posted on 2011-03-08 18:54:04

    Looks great guys. The addition of a ttc rig will be welcomed by all. I guess it’s safe to assume it will be waterproof…

  3. Default_avatar jake Posted on 2011-03-08 18:56:28

    THAT…… LOOKS…….. AMAZING!!!!!!!!

  4. Default_avatar Ray Morin Posted on 2011-03-08 20:05:19

    Oh ya that’s the way it’s done boys. Looks very good so far. Bring on the release date.

    I gotta say, this truck is a thing of beauty. I just hope that it’ll come out in kit form as well as rtr.

  6. Default_avatar ian Posted on 2011-03-08 20:18:38

  9. Default_avatar Chris Posted on 2011-03-09 07:08:02

    By far the best lookin Scale Rig EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Looks right at home dirtied up with some southeastern style mud. Excellent job CAN’T Wait to get my hands on 1 of these BadBoys.

  10. Default_avatar Jimy Posted on 2011-03-09 08:22:34

    Wow!!!! I have difficulties sleeping because I can’t wait any longer for the release of that buggy!!!

  11. Default_avatar Troy Posted on 2011-03-09 13:04:05

    Hmm, waterproof, 2 speed tranny? Wouldn’t that be nice!

  12. Default_avatar paul Posted on 2011-03-09 13:23:27

    ohhhh…baby…..come to poppa… i noticed some red under some of the mud… is this a different color scheme than the green and black we saw in the other teaser?

    where is the release date? how about 3-10-11….can we do that?

  13. Default_avatar Ryan Gerrish Posted on 2011-03-10 17:08:51

    Dibs on licking it clean.

  14. Default_avatar Zeb Posted on 2011-03-10 20:05:54

    I Have stopped modifying my SCX-10, cuz i am waiting on this bad boy to come out. Any Release dates? I need to know!!!

  15. Default_avatar parker Posted on 2011-03-12 18:55:34

    ya hope it’s waterproof!!! that would be awesome!!!

  16. Default_avatar B. Wright Posted on 2011-03-12 20:48:24

    I like the new truck , will it come as a kit or ready to run ? Do you have plans to make a scaler with old-school leaf springs ?

  17. Default_avatar jake Posted on 2011-03-13 11:10:53

    cant wait to get it looks sweet

  18. Default_avatar KC Posted on 2011-03-14 22:53:54

    I’ve spent a month trying to figure out which crawler would be my first one. The scalers didn’t have enough flex it seemed, and the comps don’t look like anything 1:1. THIS is awesome and fits my criteria perfectly. I cant wait for this to be on sale!

  19. Default_avatar David Posted on 2011-03-15 04:35:15

    Does Axial have a release date as to when it will be available to purchase?

  20. Default_avatar Troy Posted on 2011-03-16 08:17:57

    Hey guys, can you leak a little more info? I’m holding out on buying the XR10 waiting for more info on this. There might be a lot more pre-orders if we new a little more about the Wraith.

  21. Default_avatar LawickaMX3 Posted on 2011-03-16 18:32:22

    When is the release date?

  22. Default_avatar Aubrey Posted on 2011-03-19 06:52:55

    Can’t wait for this one! Looks like another winner by Axial! I definantly will be getting one!

  23. Default_avatar Ben Posted on 2011-03-21 10:30:26

    Can anyone tell if the tires are 2.2′s?

  24. Default_avatar Chad Posted on 2011-03-21 16:50:16

    Soo, when’s the release date? I’ll take two.

  25. Default_avatar Bender Posted on 2011-03-22 07:33:25

    Very soon. Keep an eye out for more details too.

  26. Default_avatar Bender Posted on 2011-03-22 07:36:54

    The tires and wheels are 2.2′s.

  27. Default_avatar Doc Posted on 2011-03-22 07:38:46

    My CC is on fire waiting for this!!

  28. Default_avatar 209SCXCRAWLER Posted on 2011-03-23 23:05:01

    Looks like Axial has done it again!!
    Since I first saw this new rig, I knew I had to get one… So like everyone else is asking, WHEN WILL IT BE RELEASED???
    My SCX probably feels cheated cuz of my new affair with the Wraith!!

  29. Default_avatar dylan Posted on 2011-03-24 04:15:37

    where can you get 2.2 rims with real beadlocks not plastic

  30. Default_avatar Goffy Lundeen Posted on 2011-03-24 07:04:57

    Man. I want to know if this will be coming in kit for?
    Axial has been my main focus that I have sold all my other rc stuff and Now just scale crawling.
    Axial comes out with great products. so dont rush take your time! Also If you need some good crawling away from EVERYONE (central Utah). Hit me up!!! :)

  31. Default_avatar Bender Posted on 2011-03-24 10:07:17

    All our beadlock wheels are plastic, but the rings are aluminum, and they are real beadlocks. If you want an all aluminum wheel, I would check out Vanquish wheels.

  32. Default_avatar juan Posted on 2011-03-24 10:20:09

    the wraith will be coming out in mid may 2011 and is it 2 speed transmission cause its a king of the hammers truck

  33. Default_avatar Scott Posted on 2011-03-24 11:39:12

    Definitely cool n’ everything, but it is definitely a shame that you aren’t releasing this as a kit. Don’t you feel like you’re alienating the RC’ers that don’t want all of their RC’s to be RTR’s loaded with throw-away Radios? That’s exactly the reason I’m no longer a Traxxas customer…

  34. Default_avatar Ben Posted on 2011-03-25 08:06:28

    I know this may sound like a stupid question but is the wraith still going to be a good crawler? Or is it more geared toward speed?

  35. Default_avatar Halcyon Posted on 2011-03-25 15:20:22

    I have to agree with Scott. The real enthusiasts will not have a need for the RTR throw away electronics. It is an awesome looking rig. But, I’ll just keep driving my berg til the kit comes out.

  36. Default_avatar lomdel Posted on 2011-03-28 06:00:34

    I can also not wait for this rig to be released! Come on Axial, push the date forward…!

  37. Default_avatar Brandon Posted on 2011-03-28 14:54:36

    The new Axial RTR’s utilize a 2.4Ghz radio and the AE-2 ESC is designed by Castle Creations. Hardly “throw-away” electronics :)

  38. Default_avatar Scott Posted on 2011-03-28 17:48:43

    So does Traxxas…. You get the stuff with every stinking truck. Many of us already have radios much better equipped than any that will ever come with a RTR and that suit all our models. Whether it’s 2.4Ghz or not doesn’t change the fact that a lot of us simply don’t want it, don’t want to pay for it, and don’t want to go through the trouble of dumping it on eBay. Believe me, I get the RTR thing – just really don’t want it. I didn’t categorize you guys with the other RC manufacturers before….

  39. Default_avatar Axial Forums Posted on 2011-03-29 15:10:24

    Can’t wait! We are all lokking forward to this. Keep it up guys!

  40. Default_avatar Aj Posted on 2011-03-29 18:47:28

    I would like to pre-order this rig as well i just wish we had more info on it…I don’t mind the RTR but a kit would be great as well… Please post full details of this truck so I can pre-order mine tomorrow…….ok I’m getting one anyway but wish I knew what I was buying

  41. Default_avatar Rodney GCRad1 Wills Posted on 2011-03-30 11:51:51


    Yes we listen…
    Yes the Wraith will come in KIT Form.
    It will follow after the RTR, not at the same delivery time.

  42. Default_avatar Veverica Posted on 2011-03-30 13:45:23

    Wow, great. More like a scale rock buggy like the R1 from Gmade. This might as well open up a whole new category in RC… Now when can I have one?

  43. Default_avatar jesse Posted on 2011-04-01 08:27:51

    its going into my collection anyway,,

  44. Default_avatar Preston Posted on 2011-04-10 08:58:20

    I have watched the video like 50 times and it still doesn’t get old!!!!!! Can’t wait till it comes out. 1/16 slash vxl gets boring after a while

  45. Default_avatar Julien Posted on 2011-04-16 17:48:25

    Dont even know where ill be able to buy this in Canada (Québec)…Hope will be able to buy from website when it comes out.

  46. Default_avatar Lee Posted on 2011-04-20 18:32:54

    love the pic but where is the video that goes with it …….i’m a newbie not sure if i want a full out crawler or a just a fast truck but i really like the scale rc.s so this is perfect !!!

  47. Default_avatar JV Posted on 2011-04-28 20:51:49
