Great news on the Diff casings and gears. It means we can use HR or other stronger diff casings and the HPI spider gears. In other words I already have a set of replacement spider gears and paper gaskets.

Does anyone have a twin hammers to measure those trailing arms? And blue monkey wraith ones? That would be phenomenal.

Josh, can you get us the rear sway bar lengths?

I think I can get all those dimensions for you. The Blue Monkey links are definitely shorter but I'm sure he'll have some for the Yeti soon based on his posts.
