With the introduction of the Yeti line back in 2014, the bar was set. Axial introduced a vehicle that featured independent front suspension(IFS) with a floating solid rear axle, something commonly reserved only for the full size off-road realm. This time around, the decision was made to make things a wee bit smaller, while still providing a high level of performance. Enter, Yeti Jr.™ Rock Racer 1/18th Scale Electric 4WD - RTR. We’ve taken all that you’ve come to love and appreciate in the Yeti chassis, but shrunk it down to 1/18th scale. It’s powered by a 380 sized brushed motor which provides the perfect amount of torque and speed for this tiny rock racing monster. Also featuring a bespoke all-in-one programmable Tactic ESC and receiver, paired with a 3-wire micro high torque steering servo. At the end of the day, the goal was to build a simple, fun, and easy to drive Yeti that anyone can handle. The hardest part about the Yeti Jr.™ Rock Racer is making sure you have enough battery packs charged in order to keep the adventure alive!

FEATURES

Rear_suspension_axle_trailing_arm_950

AR18 SOLID REAR AXLE
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:

• 8mm axle with 12mm hex adapter
• Open diff
• 61mm-90mm 7mm diameter shocks with 3mm shocks shafts
• Multiple shock mounting positions

ADJUSTABLE COILOVER SHOCKS
The threaded shock bodies hold a single coilover spring. They are oil filled and allow you to tune the dampening rate.

• 61mm-90mm 7mm diameter shocks
• 3mm shock shafts

INDEPENDENT FRONT SUSPENSION
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. This stability that the IFS front end provides is paramount when rock racing.

Front suspension features:

• Machined aluminum CVD’s
• 8mm axle with 12mm hex adapter
• Open diff
• 2.50mm hingepins
• 45mm-62mm 7mm diameter shocks with 3mm shocks shafts

1.55 BFGOODRICH® KRAWLER™ TIRES
In the full-size off-road world, they are the winner of more rock-crawling championships than all other tires combined (Race spec tire, Years 2004 through 2008). The Axial version captures the same aggressive look you’ve been waiting for, just smaller in size.

TIRE DIMENSIONS:

HEIGHT: 82mm (3.23")
WIDTH: 34mm (1.34)

FULL BALL BEARINGS
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.

48P GEARS
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 10T metal pinion gear for optimal gearing.

ADJUSTABLE MOTOR MOUNT
Adjusting gear mesh to accommodate different sized pinion or spurs 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 screws thread down into the chassis, eliminating the need for extra long hex drivers in order to secure the motor and gear mesh.
