Question Need Better Shocks and ?

So I took the yeti out for the first time and the suspension is pretty bad. What are a good set of shocks and added stability. Iíve see things added other then the shocks for a better ride?

Totally depends on how and where you want to drive it...

This is what I am running now:

Axial stock RTR shock bodies all around.
Axial AX30222 Spring 14x70mm 3.55 lbs/in - Blue in the front.
Axial AX30214 Spring 14x90mm 1.71 lbs/in - White in the rear.

Oil wt 20 in the front shocks.
Oil wt 10 in the rear shocks.

In my experience, this setup works very well on trails. Bumpy ones. At least, I like the Yeti "floating" forward while the wheels wobble away those bumps and holes.
The stiffer the springs and thicker the respective oil, the bouncier a car becomes. And with every vertical movement, the forward speed is reduced. Common thing.

With this setup, mainly the wheels go up and down, so that the car maintains a large portion of it's forward speed. And it just looks better and that's what we do it for as well.
Only downside of a soft setup is that the shocks bottom out easier, especially touching down after jumps. But with the Yeti this is about the same moment as when the chassis hits the ground. So not that bad.

Just try it and find out. Anyway no 4.95 lbs/in and 80 wt or double shock setup for me.

And for the rest, I replaced the rear trailing arms with aluminium ones. The stock ones tend to bend.

I have the stock shocks from the yeti kit. I want to use it as a basher. Like hills and rocks.

Here you can find my setup

A Yeti for the Alllgšu or my little monster


works great at bashing on gras. And gives you a starting point, front was right on, rear needs adjustments by driving style, surface and weight (mine is over 10lbs). You need definitely ci dw foams best improvement for the yeti
