Default FS: Custom Axial YETI converted to Short Course scale trophy truck

For sale is a custom axial yeti converted into a live axle 2wd short course/Dakar truck.

It has custom body mounts to suit short course bodies. The roll cage has been integrated into the design and can be driven without a body for a buggy look, and can be hinged up to access all electrics and batteries. The rear suspension has been shortened with custom 3 point alloy trailing arms. MIP steel spline drive shaft

Front suspension has been switched out with slash 4x4 complete front end to set track and strength including RPM arms. It has new wheels and tyres, including 17mm hex conversion. Includes a brand new unpainted proline Dakar truck body.
Includes all original brushless RTR electronics.
All original axial parts ( apart from ones modified for the conversion) are included if you wanted the option to go to yeti again. New original yeti wheels and tyres.
This car was just a fun project and is something different. Lots of money spent on top of the $500 retail price but hey it was fun and would be worth a lot to the right buyer even in parts or converting back to rock racer.

After $300 for the lot

PRICE DROP $250

Located in Mosman Sydney

Thanks. Would a drive shaft solution be easy? Is it a straight line from trans to front diff?

The driveline between the front diff and centre gearbox is factory axial.. Iíve only changed the suspension arms and components to slash 4x4. You would just need to find something that connects the axial diff outdrives to the slash hubs. You could possibly make something with the telescopic slash driveshafts Iím not sure, I never got around to it. There is always something, weather it be custom of something from another car. Thatís half the fun figuring it out!
