The popularity of the Axial Wraith is quite impressive, they are perhaps the most popular trail/scale rigs that we see when out bashing. The Wraith is a great machine out on the trail but I think some people might buy them even more for their hop-up potential. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bone stock Wraith out on the trail.
Cue GPM Racing Products who have numerous upgrades for the Axial Wraith. One of the coolest parts GPM makes for the Wraith is their alloy axle housing set. The aluminum alloy housing sets are not only tougher than stock but also add a bold bling statement to help your rig stand out in a crowd.
Part number for the axle housing set is #WR012 and it has a street price of $125. Check out THIS LINK for more information on the GPM website.
