CBE RC FAB
PROUDLY ANNOUNCES
THE YETI-X CONVERSION...

WHAT IS THE YETI-X?
This conversion kit that addresses the reliability of the yeti front end. For people who like to drive they're yeti beyond the limits of its stock form, this kit will allow you to do so. When you think of the longest lasting basher on the market, that can handle a considerable amount of abuse the Traxxas Slash is the first to come to mind for most people. by integrating the front of a slash 4x4 into the existing Yeti platform it takes the vehicle to another level of reliability. Topped off with a 14 gauge steel skid plate on bottom and a 14 gauge reinforcement plate on top of the steering the front end is left with very little room for movement.

WHY THE YETI-X?
The Yeti is a lot of fun. so much fun that most people drive it beyond its limits. for the people who like to do this and are tired of upgrading and replacing parts, it is easier to take an existing platform that is known for reliability and integrate it into the Yeti chassis. The Traxxas Slash has been known as a vehicle that can be beat on continually and still function. An added bonus is the availability of Traxxas parts at most local hobby stores. If you do break something it is nice to be back on the road quick. All around the slash is built for durability especially on the front end. by eliminating weak points on the Yeti, such as the small knuckles and hubs as well as eliminating the gap in the arm pins the YETI-X conversion will bring you hours of enjoyment.

THE TECH:
Traxxas slash 4x4 front end swap.
Yeti steering stays in place.
Yeti chassis and traxxas bulkhead altered.
New chromoly extended output shaft installed.
Batwing on yeti altered and 14Ga plate installed.
Transmission spacers added for clearance.
14Ga steel skid plate added to underside of chassis.
Add your own Slash 4x4 front end with the provided hardware.
Bash on your yeti for hours!

















YETI-X KIT:
CBE custom YETI-X skid plate
CBE YETI-X batwing plate
CBE chromoly output shaft
Stainless hardware
Traxxas ball cup

YETI-X RTR
Complete minus batteries

I feel like I have way too much invested in my front end for a total swap like this, but are you going to sell the top plate(or any other pieces?) separate? I'm assuming this will accept the slash MIP CVDs like the Blue Monkey setup, right?

The parts only work with this conversion because of the bolt placement and alignment. After the conversion you can use all slash related upgrades including mips and spools. As you pointed out many people have spent a decent amount of money upgrading the front end of there yeti already. For the people buying a new RTR or that have not spent too much to look at this as an option we feel it is a good 1 for long term durability.

It is also nice to be able to walk into most hobby stores and pick up parts when needed.

Understandable, I'm not trying to grill the idea. I actually think this is a great alternative to spending what I spent and figuring it out as you go. Oh, speaking of money, what are you looking at for the kit?

Pricing has been added to the first post. And no apologies necessary... this is definitely different, so some questions are expected.

I'm confused by your stages and how much this would cost me. If I wanted to stage one because I don't need another yeti chassis if I have one already. what else else do I need to buy and how much is that going to cost me. A arms, knuckles, axles, gears, diff case, etc. I want a stage that comes with all the hardware and all the Traxxas parts I need and I'll modify my chassis after watching your video. When can we expect the video? Thanks

Sapes the pricing answer is $239
The cost of the yeti parts and modification would be deducted from the stage 3 kit. If you have access to the traxxas parts for less than $140 that can save you some money as well.
The installation videos will be up by the end of the weekend.

Are you glueing standard 2.2 tires to the 2.5 wheels and are you using 2.2 foams?

Yes and yes.
A good quality 2.2 tire will stretch and regular foams are easy closed cell require a little removal of the inside... a dremnel with a sanding roller works great

You could always start a thread identical to this one in the vendors section and link to it.
