Axial Wraith Spawn 1/10th Scale Electric 4WD – Assembly Kit
The Axial Wraith™ Spawn kit version is packed with performance features and option parts that you add as you build it. The virtually bulletproof AR60 OCP axles are ready to take the Spawn through its paces whether blasting through the wide open desert or hammering its way through the toughest rock trails. The 2.2 Maxxis Trepador tires are a proven true grip standard, wrapped around industry proven Method IFD™ beadlock wheels. Whether you are rock racing or backyard bashing, the Wraith™ Spawn is ready for action.
AXIAL WRAITH™ ROCK RACER
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
FULL TUBE FRAME COMPOSITE CHASSIS
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.
REALISTIC SCALE DETAILS
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, and it comes clear with window masks and a complete set of decals so you can customize it however you’d like.
For the Wraith Spawn RTR, and now the kit version, 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.
2.2 MAXXIS TREPADOR TIRES
These fully licensed tires are molded in our performance proven S30 compound for excellent grip on any off-road surface. The aggressive tread pattern provides excellent traction on mud, rock, sand and everything in between, just like their 1:1 counterpart. These tires also feature a multi-stage staggered shoulder pattern providing improved control, even in the most difficult off-road terrain.
METHOD IFD™ BEADLOCK WHEELS
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
• Updated plastic hub adapter utilizes a standard 12mm hex
• Adjustable breather holes for fine tuning tire performance
• Compatible with most 2.2 tires
• Easy six screw disassembly
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. The lower suspension links are machined from aluminum to reduce flex and provide precise control over the roughest terrain. Measuring 7×87.5mm, these 7mm oversized diameter aluminum tubes are threaded at both ends for easy assembly and make for a durable 4-link suspension.
ICON ALUMINUM SHOCKS
These featured Icon Vehicle Dynamics aluminum shocks feature precision machined pistons which offer smooth performance throughout the range of travel. Made to tight tolerances, these aluminum shocks feature clear coated polished aluminum bodies and are threaded for quick ride height adjustments and pre-load tuning ability.
DUAL SLIPPER CLUTCH
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.
UNIVERSAL JOINT AXLES
Our universal joint axles increase steering angle by 10 degrees over the stock dogbone/drive cup setup and provide smoother action for a higher performing, efficient drivetrain. The universal is oversized; a design you’d see on 1/8 scale vehicles, and it’s made of hardened steel so it’s capable of handling extreme power.
WB8 HD WILDBOAR™ DRIVESHAFTS
The WB8 HD Wildboar™ Driveshafts feature 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.
RECEIVER BOX, WATERPROOF
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!
AXIAL AR60 OCP-AXLE™ (OFF-CENTER PUMPKIN DESIGN)
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.
