Now in kit 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 RC. The Axial 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.
In the full-size off-road world of Trophy Truck racing, BFGoodrich Tires has proven to be the “go-to” tire of choice over the years. It is responsible for winning numerous Baja championships, including the 2014 SCORE Baja 500 and 1000. The Axial version of this tire captures the same aggressive look and provides awesome performance on a wide variety of surfaces. This is the perfect tire for this style of vehicle due to its high level of performance and diversity.
Based off the popular Method 105 machined wheels, the Axial Yeti Score Trophy Truck Kit’s officially licensed wheels are dressed in orange for a fresh style and they’re compatible with most 2.2/3.0 short course tires. The hub design allows this wheel to mount to any YETI, Wraith, AX10 or SCX10.
The Axial Yeti Trophy Truck Kit’s aluminum King 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.
Solid Rear Axle
The 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.
The Axial Yeti Trophy Truck is equipped with an Independent Front Suspension [IFS] system to help maintain high-speed stability when running through a diverse range of terrain. The IFS system allows you to better control the intended direction of travel at high speeds when one side is adjusting to overcome road obstructions. This stability that the IFS front end provides is paramount when blasting through the desert. Backing up the front suspension is the AR60 rear axle with a true 4-link design that cycles nearly 3” of wheel travel.
The pursuit of horsepower and the ability to put the power to the ground is one of the main aspects of off-road 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.
Axial included a full set of CNC machined M4 threaded steel turnbuckles for precision, added tuning and durability. Features left and right handed threads for making quick adjustments on the fly.
The Axial Yeti Score Trophy Truck Kit features an updated EXO steering rack that offers additional strength for 2.2 size tires, and double shear capture points on the steering tie rods for ready-to-go rock racing action!
The Yeti Trophy Truck’s 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 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.
The Axial Yeti Score Trophy Truck Kit’s 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.
The Axial Yeti Trophy Truck Kit features the proven AR60 rear axle with a completely new 4-linked rear suspension. The Yeti™ 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.
For added realism, we’ve included a number of scale detail parts: polycarbonate interior tray with molded driver figures and dashboard, three pairs of white styrene helmets (Sparco, Moto-X, Skully), molded exhaust outlets, molded grill, molded headlight and taillight buckets, and molded hood vents. The Yeti SCORE Trophy Truck kit includes front and rear light buckets – perfect for mounting two lights per bucket, for a total of eight lights! Lights are not included, but our optional AX24257 Simple LED Controller will get you set up with four lights up front and two in the rear). For the ultimate light setup, try our NVS (AX24251 Night Vision System) which includes a wide variety of lights and a system for controlling them.
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.
The Axial Trophy Truck Kit’s 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!
