AXIAL YETI XL 1/8th 4WD ARTR MONSTER BUGGY
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 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.
Axial Yeti XL Monster Buggy
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 aluminium 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.
Axial Yeti XL Transmission
Metal where it matters most! The Yeti XL™ features an all metal gear transmission specifically designed for this chassis, along with CNC cut metal gears in both the front and rear differentials. 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.
Axial Yeti XL ESC and Receiver Box
The Yeti XL™ is powered by a waterproof Vanguard AE-4 XL ESC which provides exceptional power, braking and adjustability. The ESC comes standard with Deans® Ultra Plugs®. The ESC can be programmed manually via Castle Field Programming Card or through the Castle Link software interface (optional). The receiver in encased in a waterproof receiver box which is integrated into the bottom of the Yeti XL™ 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!
Axial Raceline Monster Wheels and 3.8" BFGoodrich® Krawler™ T/A® KX Tires
The Raceline wheels is by far the most popular wheel for extreme off-road duty. Their ability to stand up to the abuse demanded by the full-size racer and their show quality finish is second to none. The officially licensed Raceline Monster gives the Yeti XL™ that authentic racing look as well as providing the strength to handle whatever you can dish out! With a name like Monster, you know this Raceline wheel is ready to bash and combined with the the officially licensed BFGoodrich® Krawler™ T/A® KX tires the Yeti XL™ is ready to tackle anything and go anywhere!
