Default New Axial UTV

Looks like Axial put a new body on the Yeti-Jr maybe. Can-Am X3. Spotted this on a facebook page and if you look, you see the Axial logo on the bottom left. Will UTV be the next big RC thing?

Ok thats cool... The guys at the hobby shop measured a Yeti Jr a while back, and its dimensions work out to be a scale utv.... just saying.

I built a few rc side by sides and just picked up the big New Bright RZR 1000 over Christmas to build. I sure hope they did not waste the opportunity by putting it on the yeti jr lol, I would grab the Jconcepts "truth" and put it on something better. Still looks cool though!

I have one the WLtoyz RZR's (knockoff twin hammers) and for $80 its pretty cool. I am big into SXS scene so I really dig em. Hopefully this is cool.

any of them, axial or otherwise, would look AWESOME towed on a scale trailer behind your rig. i dig them for that factor alone, but not exclusively. would i buy one though? ehh… doubtful.

That suprises me. As popular as side by sides are.

looking to me to be what some guys were doing and putting the new bright UTV body on the yeti jr. Maybe it'll sell better than the yeti jr. Maybe not. I don't know. But they mentioned scalers liking it as an "accessory". All fine and good I guess but I don't know. Maybe it'll spark like wildfire and I don't know anything

Look it's one of the bright ideas that put hobbico out of business.


They couldn't give yeti JRs away, so why not let's toss some more money at it and see if it can be a failed product twice.

I don't get this thing.. but I also have zero to none contact with any of these big quads so maybe thats why

They should take a look at that IFS project going on in the 1.9 scaler thread

They've been saying in the comments on their FB page that the Jrs have been completely re-tooled and updated with better designs. It may never be SCX popular, but I wouldn't mind picking one up for my 3yr old. Then I can haul it around on my trailer just for fun. My truck/trailer build thread here. Ford F-250 Truck and Trailer


I guess it supposed to sell in all the Can-Am dealers plus hobby shops, so I'm sure they will move plenty of them.

So I read that they are marketing as a scale accessory. With a 8 inch wheel base, I guess thats close enough to 1/10 of a 90inch wheel base.


But folks that will put this in a trailer, might take issues with the solid rear axle.


I don't know if this is a real thought, or facebook scuttlebutt either way its either a great idea or a horrible after though.

Park the truck, flip the switch, drive RC accessory onto trailer. It would be pretty killer if that thing could shred the mud like a pig, but I am not seeing it.

Cool rig but most of axials rigs are closer to 1/8 scale so this would look small next to them i think the wltoys rzr looks way better and closer to the scale size of axials other rigs that one looks like a polaris with can am badging kinda funny in my opinion
