Default Yeti XL project

S/O to sabot x I saw him get this body on YouTube so I went ahead and reached out to the guy who made this body!



I had the mamba xl 1:5 system motor and I couldn't get it to fit so I went with the velineon 1600xl motor that's on the xmaxx!!



Next I have to finish putting my front end together and my yeti xl build is done guys! With my gearing setup right now I should be able to get at least 70mph on this thing! The goal is 100 mph! I have to also purchase grp wheels and tires because these stock tires are horrible with this setup

Looks Incredible Bud !! Looks like the race to 100 is on ! I'm happy that you're giving the YXL a shot. It's a pretty cool rig for sure. Make sure that you tune your slipper cluch or you'll be dealing with broken sungear pins of shattered output cups... That's been it's only thing that my Bomber eats for lunch with a locked up slipper.. Milling machine and lathe should be here soon.
I adjusted my shock oil, added progressive springs and added a HR front track bar and it's a drifter at 40+

No I've sort of stepped away from the RC seen for a while.. I recently lost my mother and 3 days ago I delivered my first born son at home. I recently purchased a 4-seater RZR and I have my project K30 84" (Retro Silverado) in the works where I'm dropping in a 528 big block/ turbo hydrostatic 420 camper transmission , Unimog Volvo c303 portal axles with a 2015 SS Grill, Denali running lights updated mirrors and Phantom Cadillac LED brake lights in the rear.. I rounded up most of my parts for that project. Diesel Killer..
Unfortunately with everything that's going on my plans have changed.. I'm unfortunately not able to attend axial Fest this year I was really looking forward it!!!
Life being back in a positive note I'll probably start posting up new videos and explain how you guys are able to win one of my axial Concepts on my channel Thanks again Jeo for showing your interest !
