Hahaha. Couldn't resist! Figured I'd try out car actions basher of the year. Saved 75 with super saver on tower so that helped a lot. I won't lie I opened the box and was immediately consumed by the amount of parts in there! I quickly closed it back up and put it down in the work room. My kids are not allowing me to focus to much today to do any building right now. :(

That looks like a lot of fun to build! Look at all those screws and happy to see they added universals versus dog bones. 8)


BTW, the blue is much easier to read in your signature block.

Screws? Lord don't get me started on screws! I can't stand how axial puts 90 bags of screws in the kit and have them all separate for what you really need. So half way through building you have all the bags open and screws all over the place!

Oh boy! 95% finished!! Ended up painting the body spaz stix teal,orange,purple flip flop backed in black. Hard to tell in pics since it's not natural light.

I'm in love with this thing so far! I absolutely can not wait to run this beast! I know one thing is for certain, mip rear drive shaft will be upgraded soon. 5700kv will show no mercy!!! :twisted:

This is actually why I bought the Yeti in the first place. Wanted to turn it into the trophy truck before it was released. But I think I like the factory yeti way!

I thought you were going for that look! I have watched that video of the SC truck and man does it handle great and look so realistic. Looking for to seeing a finished product no matter which way you go. :wink:

I love the trophy truck! Like you said its so realistic!! Bad thing about this and a sct lid, you can see the yeti is rather long. The trophy truck has shorter rear links. So maybe when parts are released I'll pick up some trophy rear links. As of right now I may just save up for the truck. The more I get into the yeti the more I like it. Looking forward to getting to run it soon. Soldering a battery plug to the esc is the only thing holding me back lol.

All you need to do is swap the rear links for some aftermarket Vaterra links and the stock upper for a Deadbolt and you'll be at 338mm wheelbase. See the latest issue of RCDriver for more info on the swap.
