AXIAL AX90032 Yeti™ XL 1/8th Scale Electric 4WD - RTR
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.
The playground just got a lot smaller – YETI XL™
BIG POWER, UNDER CONTROL!
The Yeti XL™ is powered by a Castle Creations 2200KV 4-pole Vanguard XL brushless motor and it's equipped with the industry’s first 8th scale solid rear axle with an independent front suspension [IFS] chassis system. Everything's kept under control by massive 20mm aluminum shock bodies that house Big Bore 16™ (16mm) pistons on beefy 4mm shock shafts which help maintain high speed stability when running through a wide variety of terrain. With this, we have yet again skirted the mainstream and delivered a vehicle that falls into it's own niche, the Monster Buggy.
The AR60 XL™ solid rear axle is constructed from high strength composite material which has a low flex rate but is not as brittle as standard glass filled nylon. An added reinforced axle truss strengthens the rear axle by reducing flex and by distributing the force of potentially damaging impacts. 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. Maintenance is easy - simply remove four screws to access the rear differential.
2200KV BRUSHLESS MOTOR,
When you are talking big chassis and big wheel combinations, there is one company that stands out when it comes to BIG POWER and that is Castle Creations! The Axial Yeti XL™ is powered by a Castle Creations 2200KV 4-pole brushless motor which provides unimaginable amounts of power, amazing torque and blazing-speed for this rock bashing monster.
WB XL CVJ REAR DRIVESHAFT
This design uses less parts for a stronger, more durable and tighter fitment. While this is a more compact design, it uses larger diameter bearings to keep the input gear stable under instant heavy power. Axial has continually developed our plastic driveshafts and has taken this accumulative knowledge and put it into this beefy driveshaft. The composite material was specifically chosen for it's resistance to heat and the ability to withstand direct impact.
• Less slop = less driveline clunk with instant power transfer
• Captured cross pin design, no set screws to lose
• Increased surface area at the connection between the ball joint and the composite drive shaft
• Captured cross pin design eliminates older set screw design for more durability and easy maintenance.
