YETI XXL HYBRID

Post by twissted on Sat 21 Feb 2015 - 5:53

So I like doing things a little different. I also like to build large scale lately. This build is no different. I using Traxxas 3.3 Revo parts, Summit parts, HPI Baja parts, Hitec 1/5 servo and a custom frame of my own design. Money is tight at the moment so this build will be a little slow. I do have a lot of the parts already so it shouldn't be to bad. The Axial Yeti cage will be about the only thing that has anything to do with the Yeti XL but it will look like one when it's done, sort of.
Here are some of the parts being used
Hitec HS-5755MG steering servo
Summit 2 speed transmission
Summit front locking diff.
Slayer Pro front bumper
2 Traxxas 2065 micro servos
RPM revo arms
Traxxas aluminum hop up parts
1/5 Proline trenchers/RC4WD Dune Reapers
Traxxas Rear diff spool
3.3 Traxxas aluminum stretched chassis
HPI Vorza Motor mount
Leopard 4075 brushless motor
Axial Yeti XL roll cage
Rampage XT front bumper
Summit shifting links and mounts
HPI style 1/5 bead lock rims
SkyRC 150 amp 6s speed control
And a hole bunch of custom parts. Including a scale fuel injected blown motor and interior!

The wheel base is 17 3/4'' long and 17 1/4'' wide out side of tire. That makes my build a inch wider than the Axial Yeti XL and 3/4'' shorter. I hope to try this build out against a built Axial Yeti XL.

This is the roller that I picked up off of ebay years ago to do a build like this. The funny thing is that I did't really know what I was going to do with it untill the Yeti XL came out a few months back.
I think I won the bid around $100.00 just as you see it here.

I just ordered the micro servos as well as the Roll cage today. The Revo rear wing mount, I ordered 2 days ago. so I do have some parts on the way. The custom frame is cut already and I made the custom drive shafts also. I have the chassis as a roller and when the Roll cage gets mounted I will build the Custom lipo trays so that they fit as they should. I will mount them with the weight forward so that it is a great climber.



The picture above shows the HPI Savage 24mm wheel hex adapters that are needed to use the 1/5 scale rims. They work slick. I have tall narrow tires that will set this build apart!

This is the bomb proof motor mount that will be in this build. it lays the motor on the chassis, so the weight is as low as possible.

This picture shows a frame that I used to mach up the wheel base and lay-out.


Here are some drive lines I'm playing with. because of the custom length I needed to make some.

I tried this chassis out and it worked fine, but I wasn't happy with the twist flex that it had. So I went to the scrap yard and bought some RV awening legs to build the frame from. It is important that I have on flex between the motor and the transmission.

You can see the difference in the size of a normal servo to the larger 1/5 scale servo in this picture.

It took me 1/2 hour to figure out how to mount the back of the cage to the body post of the revo mounts on the chassis. I'm using a broken drill bit as the hing pin for now. So it works and it doesn't stand out. All good things in my book. I took some pictures of the Desert Buggy with the Yeti to give you a idea as th how big it is going  to be.

I have improved on the way it opens compared to the Axial design. Notice that mine opens all the way so that it is easy to work on with out it falling down or getting in the way.

I ordered 2 sets of the HPI wheelyking battery and radio box. I will be using the 2 battery holders to run 4s and 6s on this Buggy The raido box is a nice touch, and I will use one them also.

I used dryer vent to make t panels. I will need to buy another tube to finish the sides. I may get flashing instead.

I made this spare tire carrier from a 23mm hex extension That I had no use for. I used a Zip tie to attach it to the cage.

I'm going to stay with the stock Summit dumper for now so that I get it done in a timely fashion. I will do something custom later.
I will pull the lights out of the rear bumper and install them in the roll cage rear light bar.

I also have the Slayer Pro bumper on the way in case I like it better

When I paint this I will use flat black to make it look like a hole for the blower to stick out. This will help it stand out more also.

How I made the panel. I used painters tape and masked the area that I wanted to make the panel for. I peeled and pasted to a sheet of aluminum that I bought at Home Depot. It is a dryer vent. $3.88

Nice build!

Great idea on using the tape to trace out the panels!

Looking forward for more updates on the build.. Smile

I was working on getting the wire cleaned up. This is how it is going to look other than the light harness that will also find it's way into this build.


Here is the difference in the two builds side by side.
