Agreed, but if the knuckles are the same as the Exo, people won't be able to run a lot of the aftermarket wheels without wide hubs... and then the bitching will begin.

Judging by the hub design, and vanquishes relationship with Axial. I'm nearly positive VP already has the wheels and other items covered.

Doesn't look like it will be too easy to add a solid front axle.

everyone wondering what wheels may work !!

looks like the hub carriers are the size same as the stock EXO

I've been running both on my IFS (EXO front end) with Vp 2.2 OMF & Method wheels - with on problems,
these wheels have no inner bead lock ring
have 350 hubs on it now & it looks like you could even use 250 hubs if need be. with no clearance problems !!



so is everyone ready for a YETI - T shirt ??

They keep saying 4 pole BL right? It's probably the WP Sidewinder with the 4 pole 3300kv combo.

And thank gotd it takes a honking 5000mah 3s

The new wheels on the Yeti look like they have plenty of clearance on the backside like a VP OMF wheel.

Notice the easy access door to remove the battery? Remove two front body clips, lift body/cage and remove the battery door clip to replace battery.

Impact absorbing front bumper that works like a charm!

Scale fuel cell that is empty for all your scale storage needs!

Attach some fuel line from the fuel cell to the fuel filler on the cage for that awesome scale look.

Brandon out did himself with the scale details on this rig with the included exhaust tip!

Not quite Clod Talk approved 90* of articulation but it will do.

My favorite tires, 2.2 BFG Krawler T/A's!

With Axial being in SoCal, I think someone has watched to many episodes of border wars with this drug smuggling border crossing inspired easy access door for the receiver in the bottom of the chassis.

Nice optional body for the Yeti!

Just pre ordered one!

This thread (with the additional pics - thanks!), made the decision easy.

Now patiently waiting.

Same here, Im sold, going to pre-order!

Looks like a nice bell crank setup for the steering, I have a spare set of Kyosho RT-5 shocks that hopefully will fit this beauty!

Great job Axial!

I sort of feel I can see some weakness allready. Look at the way the front A-arms is hinged to the sub frame. One major hit in front the front wheel and the hinge bolt will break the mount right off. They should have solved this with solid tie bars from side to side as most others. One other thing is the plastic links. Why on earth didn't they use steel turnbuckles? This looks cheap, and I'll bet there will be an upgrade kit they want us to buy. Looks like they've also stuck with the sloppy plastic ball ends. They just plain SUCK even for slow scalers, imagine how great they will be on a much faster car...
For you haters, look at how Traxxas has done this on their cars. At least it _looks_ far superior compared to this, and I do know the Slash takes some major impacts without problems.

I'm not too impressed really, but we'll see when you guys start beating on them.. :-)
