I had this chassis sitting around for the longest time trying to figure out what to do with it and whether or not to unload it. After looking at the Axial Wraith cage, I thought I could adapt portions of it to the Twin Detonator by cutting the chassis and extending it to about a 12' wheelbase. So, this is the result, along with a Pro-Line Jeep body intended for the wraith.

The electronics include a MMP ESC and twin Dynamite 20 turn motors, with a single LIPO, and rigged shock towers to fit larger shocks. It runs pretty well, but it's so heavy with the twin motors.

Still working on the interior, but plans in place to run dual Wraith seats and a driver.

Youve created a Great looking chassis and body, as always. Needs a driver, maybe a Toykid Moto Willy...

Looks wild, can you show one or two pics of the stretched chassis?

I like it! Cool looking thing and could have some nice torque with twin motors!

Thanks guys! @Steve, thanks buddy! You read my mind on the driver. @Jeeklemental - I'll get some pictures of the bare chassis tomorrow. I made a couple of different aluminum plates that take the wheelbase anywhere between 11.6' and 12'.

That is really sweet! I've been tempted with a Wraith chassis myself, but what you've done by combining the two is fantastic!

Looks really good. Always nice to see something different with a twin det..................I have an addiction to them as my showroom testifies!
