The Yeti Jr™ RTR takes everything you admire about the 1/10 scale Yeti chassis and shrinks it down to 1/18 scale - then tops it off with a licensed Can-Am® Maverick X3 body for a fun 4WD that anyone can handle. Out of the box, this tiny terror is ready for scale adventures!
Before the Yeti, the only place to find an independent suspension with floating solid rear axle was in full-size off-road vehicles. Axial carried its advantages over into RC rock racers and crawlers. The suspension design give the Yeti Jr responsive handling, increased clearance, and improved stability at high speeds. Its included 380-size motor adds the perfect amount of speed and torque. When that muscle meets the tread of the Maxxis® Bighorn 2.0 radial tires, you've got all the traction you need for fast, smooth rides over virtually any surface.
The STX2 2-channel radio system offers many features of higher-end 2.4GHz radio systems like throttle/steering reversing, throttle/steering travel adjust & throttle limiting.
The Spektrum ESC/Receiver is an all in one unit featuring an EC3 battery connector, a convenient on- off switch and it's water resistant for peace of mind when water splashes on your electronics.
Delivering an even balance of speed and technical adventuring, the Dynamite Tazer 380 37T motor features a worry-free design with enlarged cooling ports for extended periods of use. The motor is paired with a 15T pinion and 60T spur gear for extra speed!
Steering is powered by a Spektrum high torque micro servo, featuring a metal gear train to help withstand rough offroad conditions.
The included Dynamite 1300mAh NiMH battery pack features a convenient EC3 connector and a 1300mAh charge capacity.
To help keep the scale premise in check, simply shrinking down an existing axle was just not an option. In keeping the proportions correct along with yielding ample terrain clearance a new axle was designed, the AR18. Features include a compact two-piece design, captured pinion gear, and three-linked rear suspension with integrated sway-bar like support design for improved handling.
Rear suspension features:
The threaded shock bodies hold a single coilover spring. They are oil filled and allow you to tune the dampening rate.
The Yeti Jr.™ features a three-linked rear suspension design with integrated sway-bar like support for improved handling. The rear axle has upper and lower mounting points for the trailing arm, allowing you to fine tune your suspension setup.
The Yeti™ Jr. is equipped with an Independent Front Suspension (IFS) system to help maintain high-speed stability when running through a diverse range of terrain. The IFS system allows you to better control the intended direction of travel at high speeds when one side is adjusting to overcome road obstructions. The stability that the IFS front end provides is paramount for off road racing.
Front suspension features:
The body mount system allows easy access to the electronics with only the removal of two body mount clips.
No micro gearing here, instead the drivetrain features 48P gears, which is not only a robust design but also expands the number of possible gearing configurations. The spur gear is mated to a 15T metal pinion gear for optimal gearing.
Adjusting gear mesh to accommodate different sized pinion or spur gears has never been easier with the help of a cam style motor mount design. The front top plate secures the cam motor plate in place and all the screws thread down into the chassis, eliminating the need for extra-long hex drivers in order to secure the motor and gear mesh.
Just because the Yeti Jr. is smaller in size doesn't mean the features need to follow suit. No bushings found here, instead the Yeti Jr. drivetrain is freely spinning on sealed cartridge bearings throughout the entire vehicle.
Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires feature a non-directional tread pattern that is suitable for use in a wide variety of conditions such as hard packed dirt, soft terrain, and traversing scale trails in your backyard!
The stylish and sturdy Can-Am wheels feature a standard sized 12mm hex for a strong, durable fit.
The battery tray is fully height adjustable with multiple configurations available. It's easily changeable between 6-Cell NiMH battery packs or smaller battery packs. The integrated battery tray can be easily accessed without having to remove any body clips or even the body, allowing for quick battery swaps.
The rear driveshaft is centered for efficiency, and is mated to the rear differential outdrive which is captured by a bearing to keep things running smoothly.
