Default Wraith Spawn RTR vs Kit

Hello,

Considering buying a Wraith. Are there any big differences between the kit and RTR in terms of components? Does the kit come with any upgrades?

Thanks

If you're getting it for bashing, the plastic links on the RTR will be fine. If you're wanting to do any crawling you NEED the aluminum links that come with the kit. The plastic one's will bend under the slow-speed pressure. Plus the Kit comes with the CVD's which are not only stronger than the RTR but allow more steering angle too.

Biggest difference in my opinion is the universals for helping steering. Plastic links are slicker than aluminum on rock although they do bend. Best aluminum link is for steering and if you do that you need aluminum chubs and knuckles or the plastic ones will get broke or at least that always happens to me. Still it comes down to your budget

I agree as long as budget doesn't interfere.

The Axial Bomber is what the Wraith should have been IMO. Consider it. The kit is way better than the RTR in both cases. But in the case of the Bomber it's the best, most well upgraded Axial kit.
