The yeti comes with a 5mm Pinion. You can use either a 3.17mm or 5mm. Just make sure you have a suitable Pinion. Personally I'd stock with a 5mm shaft if you can.

At least my yeti kit came with a 5mm Pinion. I assume the rtr does too. Best advice, get a motor, and a 32p Pinion to suit the motor you buy

I would go with the 5mm shaft, that's what i did. I had the unsensored 1410 3800kv 5mm, great motor. But it was unsensored, so i changed to a HH 540R also using a 5mm shaft. Both great motors for the yeti. I power them with 3S lipos.
