This is the Radio Controlled, Electric Powered, 1/8 scale 4WD Yeti XL Rock Racer Kit from Axial (AX90038)
Now in kit form, the Yeti™ XL monster buggy kit is a skillfully engineered truck with a solid rear axle and independent front suspension. Its distinct aesthetic and technical elements were inspired by full-size desert trucks. Its strategically engineered design supplies bashing stamina while delivering a high level of technical rock racing abilities without compromise in either category. This kit version will accept standard 1/8th scale brushless 4-pole systems and most industry standard stick packs. Precision Icon Vehicle Dynamics aluminum shocks are standard equipment and deliver smooth suspension movement for consistent handling. We've also included a rear sway bar (medium, 3.4mm), 3mm aluminum lower link plates, aluminum 17mm hex hubs and nuts, adjustable steel turnbuckles, and officially licensed 3.8 Falken WildPeak M/T tires in our S30 compound.
The Yeti XL is powered by a Castle Creations 2200KV 4-pole Vanguard XL brushless motor and it's equipped with the industry’s first 1/8th scale solid rear axle with an independent front suspension [IFS] chassis system. Everything's kept under control by massive 20mm aluminum shock bodies that house Big Bore 16 (16mm) pistons on beefy 4mm shock shafts which help maintain high speed stability when running through a wide variety of terrain. With this, we have yet again skirted the mainstream and delivered a vehicle that falls into it's own niche, the Monster Buggy.
Chassis: Composite plastic with integrated upper and lower aluminum braces for greater stiffness, multiple upper link positions to adjust anti-squat
Drive: Four wheel shaft, AR60XL OCP solid rear axle, WB XL CVJ rear driveshaft with captured cross pin design-no set screws to lose front CVJ metal universals, adjustable steel turnbuckles
Front Suspension: Independent, maintains high-speed stability and travel direction when encountering the roughest of terrain
Rear Suspension: 4-linked Long travel sway bar (medium 3.4mm), 3mm aluminum lower link plates
Body: Clear polycarbonate .040" (1mm) thick, with interior tray, three driver helmets, decals, spare wheel and tire
ICON VEHICLE DYNAMICS SHOCKS:
Icon Vehicle Dynamics aluminum shocks feature Big Bore 16™ precision machined pistons which offer smooth performance throughout the range of travel. Made to tight tolerances, these aluminum shocks feature clear coated polished aluminum bodies and are threaded for quick ride height adjustments and pre-load tuning. They also feature non-functional aluminum shock reservoirs with official Icon Vehicle Dynamics graphics for realistic scale looks!

LONG TRAVEL REAR SWAY BAR:
The pursuit of horsepower and the ability to put the power to the ground is one of the main aspects of offroad racing. This unique torsion bar design with long pivot arms used in conjunction with the long travel suspension is designed to help control the torque twist associated with massive power. This system also helps reduce body roll and adds stability at high speeds.
Items Required, But Not Included:
2 to 3S LiPo Battery w/Dean's Female Ultra-Plug
AC or AC/DC LiPo Battery Charger
Four 'AA' Batteries for Transmitter
Radio System with Receiver

Tools for Assembly
Paint for Body
*This is a kit that requires assembly. The body comes clear and must be painted and decals applied. Modeling tools and supplies required and are available separately.
4-LINKED REAR SUSPENSION:
The Yeti™ features the proven AR60 rear axle with a completely new 4-linked rear suspension. The Yeti™ chassis offers three upper link positions to adjust the anti-squat. The lower link mounts can be flipped to change the roll center. These advanced tuning options will help you get the most performance from your rig.
17mm ALUMINUM HEX HUBS:
Industry standard 17mm hex hubs, hard anodized with a 3x17mm steel pin and set screw. The machined serrated 17mm nut helps eliminate wheels from coming loose by biting into the wheel as you tighten them down. The front universals feature an all metal, super strong CVJ design and they're completely rebuildable. The benefit of a universal joint is an increased steering angle and precise fitment for an efficient driveline. The captured pin design allows for better reliability and easier maintenance.

The AR60 XL™ solid rear axle is constructed from high strength composite material which has a low flex rate but is not as brittle as standard glass filled nylon. An added reinforced axle truss strengthens the rear axle by reducing flex and by distributing the force of potentially damaging impacts. The combination of our axles and a true 4-link suspension gives you optimal performance for any terrain with the look of a real 1:1 vehicle. Maintenance is easy - simply remove four screws to access the rear differential.
The Axial Yeti XL Monster Buggy - a new category, a new frontier, a new dimension. From the beginning of the concept through the design phase, we drew upon our brand philosophy to develop and deliver something different to the R/C monster truck arena. Monster trucks are known for bashability, so we jumped head first into the segment by creating a vehicle with insane brushless power along with features that would allow it to withstand the abuse that comes with the territory. From the outset, the goal of maintaining brand heritage was a priority. Our research and development team took those traits and attributes, mixed them with the Axial design ethos which is heavily rooted in full size rock racing, and developed what could be considered the next level in R/C monster truck design.
