this rig arived today its not nearly as bad as i thought it was just muddy most of the rig looks brand new it just has some horable paint all over it the a arm pins were both bent and it had extra long rod ends on one of the upper turnbuckles but theres almost no scratches on it anywere not even were i would exspect there to be like the bottom of 5he axle or the front skid plate
heres what came in the box


the white paint is some kind of peel off rubber paint it sticks good and comes off clean


the cage which is all i could realy make out in the listing

the paint on the cage is realy bad it dosent look to bad in the pics but its bad however the cage itself is in great shape




i cleaned it up alittle then tore it apart the raptor body isent here yet so just to get a idea of what it.was gona look like i set the dodge body on it and the wheel base is a perfict match lol and the width is good too


when the new body gets here ill statt a new thread in the large scale section im not sure what im gona do with the old body and cage yet but ill figure something out lol

That doesn't look nearly as bad as you first described it! I gotta run my Yeti again. I just haven't had the chance to get out to the Dirt track to run it.

i know right a good wash did wounders for it the ebay pics were horable but figured there would be some usable parts on it but from what it looks like as of right now i can use everything i almost want to keep it a yeti but i dont ever use the big yeti so probably wont ever use this one i have a fully i dependent short course wraith and i hardly ever take it out so i figured ill build a scaller i might toss some electronics in it and take it for a spin before i completely tear it down



the body looks red in the pics but looks pink in person adding to the uglyness i think they used crapie paint and its flaking off already so it should be easy to clean upnif i ever decide to do anything with it
