The Axial Wraith 1.9 RTR 1/10 Scale Rock Crawler is a fresh take on a classic platform that delivers what scalers crave - the ability to tackle technical terrain combined with the scale details needed to create an incredibly realistic looking rig.
Refining the proven 2.2 Wraith chassis design, Axial improved ground clearance by reducing the size of its skid plate and lower rails. Boatside sliders on the skid plate improve handling by helping the vehicle slip through and past obstacles. Another huge benefit to the Wraith 1.9 is that the truck comes out of the box with a forward battery tray configuration! This helps optimize weight distribution and lower the CG for improved performance. Finally, the servo has been moved off the axle and into the chassis where it belongs, with a proper CMS/panhard system that gives the truck improved scale looks, without the negative side effects that can be created by home brew systems.
At the front end of the pinched and boat tailed polycarbonate body you'll find a molded plastic grille, radiator detail, and two large, LED-equipped headlights and a functional opening hood. Raise the hood to discover a replica V8 engine receiver box cover protecting the Spektrum SRX200 receiver from water, dust, and debris.
The Wraith 1.9 truck's drivetrain uses a powerful brushed 540 motor to turn its proven front and rear, single piece AR44 axles. The pinion gear is 6mm above center, raising the ground clearance and improving driveshaft angles. Axial boosts the overall strength with metal gear construction; large, flex-reducing load bearings; increased gear surface contact; and a gear ratio that's optimized to reduce torque twist.
Adjustable oil-filled, coil over shocks allow you to tune dampening for the best handling on any track. Molded from durable S30 compound, the officially licensed Nitto Grappler tires have a large block tread that gets excellent bite on a wide range of surfaces.
The Axial Wraith 1.9 RTR comes factory-assembled and requires only a battery pack with IC3/EC3 connector, compatible battery charger, and four AAs for the included Spektrum 2.4GHz transmitter. It's easy enough for new RC hobbyists, with the design sophistication to take experienced drivers on incredible adventures far beyond the end of the road.

I gave it a 4.5 because the body is really flimsy but looks good, the stock tires and wheels are very lightweight and thin, the electronics are ok for an rtr. I haven’t had any issues thus this far. I would recommend, specially if it goes on sale. It will definitely grow on you once you drive it. So far so good axial
I was looking for a solid trail rig that I wasn't going to have to throw too much into and this does pretty well in the RTR format.
I will say that front Universal Axles shafts are a drastic improvement over the CVD front shafts, metal links, and a servo with a metal servo horn are almost immediately necessary.
