Other features include Icon aluminum shocks, aluminum lower link plates, threaded aluminum turnbuckles and heavy duty bevel gears. More info and pictures of the Axial Yeti Rock Racer Kit after the break!
Falken WildPeak Tires
The WildPeak All Terrain tire that comes as standard equipment on the Yeti Rock Racer Kit has amazing traction on many surfaces, even with its rather conservative pattern. This fact alone has had the entire industry on the edge of their seats waiting to see what the Falken rubber will be able to do with a more aggressive pattern. The WildPeak M/T version of this tire is here, albeit in a prototype stage. These prototypes are already being put through their paces by the who’s who of the off road world. With tremendous success in competitive rock racing, this tire is already in very high demand. The Axial S30 compound will offer the performance you have come to expect from Axial.
Methond IFD Wheels
Based off the Method MR101s these officially licensed wheels dressed in an aggressive all black style are easy to assemble and they work with most 2.2 tires. The hub design allows this wheel to mount to any Wraith, AX10 or SCX10. The Axial IFD (Interchangeable Face Design) wheel system makes it easy to dress up with a new look.
Icon Aluminum Shocks
The Axial Yeti Kit’s Icon Vehicle Dynamics aluminum shocks feature precision machined pistons which offer smooth performance throughout the range of travel. Made to tight tolerances, these aluminum shocks feature clear coated polished aluminum bodies and are threaded for quick ride height adjustments and pre-load tuning ability.
Heavy Duty Bevel Gears
The heavy duty gear set offers you improved gear mesh reducing slop in the drive train. In addition it helps add weight low down which helps keep the center of gravity low and on the rocks where you want it. Made from high grade steel and hardened for increased strength.
Aluminum Lower Link Plates
The Yeti Rock Racer Kit includes Hard Anodized 2mm Aluminum Lower Link Plate Set for added durability and stiffness of the rear 4 link suspension.
Hard anodized aluminum M4 threaded turnbuckles on the independent front suspension for added tuning.
Universal Axle Set
Our universals provide smoother action for a higher performing, efficient drivetrain. The universal is made of hardened steel so it’s capable of handling extreme power.
AR60 OCP Axle
The Yeti Rock Racer Kit’s AR60 OCP-Axle is constructed from high strength composite material which has a low flex rate but is not as brittle as standard glass filled nylon. The combination of our axles and a true 4-link suspension gives you optimal performance for any terrain with the look of a real 1:1 vehicle.
Long Travel Sway Bars
The pursuit of horsepower and the ability to put the power to the ground is one of the main aspects of offroad racing. This unique torsion bar design with long pivot arms used in conjunction with the long travel suspension is designed to help control the torque twist associated with massive power. This system also helps reduce body roll and adds stability at high speeds.
4 Link Rear Suspension
The Yeti features the proven AR60 rear axle with a completely new 4-linked rear suspension. The Yeti kit chassis offers three upper link positions to adjust the anti-squat. The lower link mounts can be flipped to change the roll center. These advanced tuning options will help you get the most performance from your rig.
WB8 HD Wildboard Driveshaft
The WB8 HD rear driveshaft features an updated design with a larger diameter cross pin (2x11mm) along with an M4 Screw Shaft (2mm hex drive) for added strength. A center splined slider floats between each end and features added material which reduces flex and fatigue.
WB8 HD Center CVD Joint
The WB8 HD Wildboar Driveshaft Joint is employed from the transmission to the front bulkhead. It features an updated design with a larger diameter cross pin (2x11mm) along with an M4 Screw Shaft (2mm hex drive) for added strength.
Dual Slipper Clutch
Our dual slipper design uses a pad on each side of the spur gear for added surface area. This allows for more precise tuning and holding power. The spur gear features strong, 32 pitch gearing for high torque applications.
The Axial Hi-Lo 2 speed transmission was specifically designed for the Yeti chassis. With all metal internal gears, this full ball bearing transmission has the strength to endure the harshest rock racing environment and brushless power. The factory gearbox comes as a single speed with the high gear installed for high speed fun. The integrated motor mount features a wide range of movement for endless gearing options. Optional two-speed transmission component sold separately.
Dual Sheer Steering Rack
Updated dual shear steering rack with full ball bearings and machined steel guide posts.
Waterproof Receiver Box
The waterproof receiver box is integrated into the bottom of the Yeti chassis. Three different silicone seals are included, one for the antenna, one for the servo wires (includes three slots for three channels), and one acts as a gasket for the receiver box cover. No more stress when running in mud, water, or snow!
Adjustable Battery Tray
The integrated battery tray can be easily accessed by removing the two front body pins and pivoting up the entire body. Gain full access to the battery trap door by removing the remaining body pin. The battery tray is fully height adjustable with four button head screws, making room for most standard sized 2S and 3S LiPo battery packs.
Realistic scale details include: polycarbonate interior tray with molded driver figures and dashboard, three white styrene helmets, molded exhaust outlets, molded grill, molded headlight buckets, and molded hood vents. The body bolts to the scale Y-380 cage assembly using multiple mounting points. Includes realistic driver figures complete with a race suit and three interchangeable helmets. A motocross, open skull-face or motorsport version of the helmet are included, choose your own style!
