Yeti Option Parts Overview

Yeti_OptionParts_Overview
The Yeti is one of those high speed, multi-terrain capable vehicles that many turn to for extreme rock racing performance. The combination of the independent front suspension and rear solid axle design gives the driver a unique driving experience. The transmission and power system pumps out speeds that will launch it over whatever is in your way. And of course, the look of the aggressive rock racing buggy draws in any attention seeker. This rig puts you in the action with success right out of the box. But like with any hobby machine, there will be drivers who want to customize their rigs to suit their taste and because of that Axial has a full list of options available to make your machine stand out. Here we have a AX90026  Yeti from the test rig fleet that has received a bunch of option accessories. Here we’ll go through those accessories and their benefits so you can determine if this is the best option part for you. Plus you’ll get to see the part installed and imagine what it would be like on your own Yeti.

Available in kit or ready to run form, the Yeti™ SCORE® Trophy Truck® is a purposely engineered desert truck with a solid rear axle and independent front suspension. Make no bones about it, this is not a short course truck nor is it designed for the sugar coated and manicured racetracks of R/C. This Trophy Truck is designed for the roughest of conditions and REAL DIRT. We beg for the dirt and rocks to be brought back to off-road! There are reasons why full size Trophy Trucks feature the four link suspension design; durability, capability, and improved forward bite without sacrificing suspension travel. Full-size Trophy Trucks inspired the distinct aesthetic and technical elements of this truck, right down to the solid rear axle. The retro inspired body features design queues from a 1960’s era roof-line, classic 1970’s wheel arches and glass shapes from the 1980’s. Giving this kit an extra bit of modern contrast comes in the form of fluorescent orange Method 105 wheels. This kit version will accept standard 1/10th scale brushed and brushless 4-pole systems and most major stick pack batteries. Precision machined aluminum shocks are standard equipment and deliver smooth suspension movement for consistent handling.

WHO IS IT FOR: The Yeti is exactly what it sounds like, a beast on the terrain. This off-road performer is fast and can handle anything from loose dirt to rugged rocky surfaces.

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.

WHO IS IT FOR: Size matters and if you need to go big, go bold and have loads of power on tap to obliterate the terrain than the Yeti XL is the perfect fit for your aggressive driving nature.

Yeti Pre-run Checklist – Read Before You Run

blog_yetiprerun

Now that the Axial Yeti is hitting hobby store shelves, we are hearing of more “Yeti sightings” being recorded! That being said we wanted to take a few minutes to help you get familiar with this new platform! First and foremost, let’s go over what to look for when you first pull it out of the box. As with any new RTR R/C vehicle, you should check everything over carefully before installing a battery and heading off to your local bash spot. RTR means “ready to run”, but even then there are certain things you should check before actually running your new “RTR” R/C. For this blog post we will cover unboxing your new Yeti, and what to look for before driving it for the first time.

Checklist:

1. Check and make sure the wheel nuts are properly torqued down on all four corners of the vehicle after you pull it out of the box. No need to get crazy and over tighten them, just make sure they are good and snug.

DSC_0432

2. Adjust the height of the battery tray to fit the battery packs you have, or that you plan on running.You want to make sure the battery is held firmly in place so it can’t move around while you are driving. If the battery can move around in the chassis while you are driving the Yeti, it can cause erratic or inconsistent handling.

DSC_0440

3. Next we added a little foam to the battery tray to stop the battery from sliding back and forth after you have adjusted the height in the previous step. We cut up an old tire foam and used a little at both ends of the battery. Shoe Goo can be used to hold the foam in place so it stays put during battery changes.

DSC_0437

4. Check all drive shaft set screws prior to your first run to ensure they are tight. You will also want to check these after your first battery pack as well, just to make sure they are still properly seated.

DSC_0441

For the front output, turn the front tires to the passenger side. Then, you can access the set screw from the driver’s side with a long 2mm driver as shown.

This covers the initial inspection before you run your Yeti for the first time. Taking a few minutes to go over this list, as well as giving the entire vehicle a quick visual check, will definitely give you a better experience. We will have more maintenance tips and tricks coming soon as well! Stay tuned!!
