Axial Wraith Spawn Kit Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Wednesday, 20 May 2015

Axial has sent us their latest kit to check out; the Wraith Spawn!

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.         

The Spawn showcases Axial's newest purpose designed body.

"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."

Since we've built a Wraith before there won't be anything here on the build unless necessary, but the body is another story. I am open to suggestions on paint scheme. If you saw the YETI build then you saw the body I did for that, so I'm up for another custom scheme.

So today I had some visitors from RC4WD who have stopped by to lend a hand on a build of mine.

Mike and Rick!
RC4WD Action Figures!

RC4WD asked me to take look and see what use I could put Mike and Rick too, so I figured they would be perfect to help me with the progress on my 6x6 that I've been slowly working away at!

Let's talk about the Axial Yeti XL.


What is it?
According to Axial, the Yeti XL is part of a new category called "Monster Buggy". Here is what Axial says:

The Axial Yeti XL™ Monster Buggy - a new category, a new frontier, a new dimension. From the beginning of the concept through the design phase, we drew upon our brand philosophy to develop and deliver something different to the R/C monster truck arena. Monster trucks are known for bashability, so we jumped head first into the segment by creating a vehicle with insane brushless power along with features that would allow it to withstand the abuse that comes with the territory. From the outset, the goal of maintaining brand heritage was a priority. Our research and development team took those traits and attributes, mixed them with the Axial design ethos which is heavily rooted in full size rock racing, and developed what could be considered the next level in R/C monster truck design.

My take is that it is a combination of an 1/8-1/6 scale buggy crossed with a monster truck. Let's face it, this is a whole new beast to contend with for the R/C world. As far as I know it's the first large IFS and SRA vehicle available. In our scale terms think of it as an XC on crack, meth, and a personality disorder all in one! It's a hell of a thing!!!
