    Can you provide some details about what is required to use the axial yeti cage on the slash?

    Mine was a little different since I had the shock adaptors on my shock towers.

    For a more somewhat "normal" set-up, see here for Sneeches' build:
    https://forums.traxxas.com/showthrea...=1#post6415534
    and click on the link at the end for more details.

    If you need more info, dig through my thread. Most of what I did is in here somewhere. If you can't find what you need, post up your question here and I will try my best to answer.

    Have fun and make it yours!

    Thanks squeegie! Unfortunately it looks like mounting is complicated and the Yeti cage is now very expensive.

    Here is a preview of my WarBAJR II inspired BAJR. Well I really copied most of it but I came up with a different body mounting system. I will post more details in a new thread soon.

    Have you guys all taped your tires? I finally got myself a set of Badlands and they were on my car for a whole 10 minutes. Just about as much time as it takes to shoot a few pictures, do a test run, do 1500 cartwheels because the tires balloon more than anything else I've ever tried and then finally taking them off and putting them up for sale.

    I've taped all my tires except my 2.8 G-Locs (internally cross-ribbed made it difficult for tape to stick onto inner surface) and 1/8 BSR foams.

    If you need to tape G-Locs, lektro Shoe-Gooed and drywall taped his:

    These were factory fitted, glued and everything, so I just didn't want to bother taking them apart, taping, balancing and re-gluing them:

    As a rule of thumb, I do not purchase pre-mounted tires/wheels.

    I think you will be surprised when you do use it. I use it for everything I can't get a screw in if it needs to be held in place. If its a really smooth plastic to plastic I just scratch up each area to get to the raw plastic. Said this before but will say again. It won't move unless you pry the piece's apart. After which you can clean it off too.

    Another good thing is when it dries, it stays flexible.

    Well My Friend! I hate to bust your bubble so to say!!! It has no comparison to goop. Just tried it. Might have to take back and find goop. I will say the A6000 is good for adhering things and has approximately 45% more flex. Probably keep one tube.... but not for taping a tire..
    I do like the way it flow's out of the tube.



    Will give the mesh and sidewalls A good coat of goop tomorrow.

    Are you doing this backwards? I thought you were supposed to put the goop on first and then put on the fiberglass mesh

    Yes and the mesh is coming out. I tried it with the A6000. It's too flexible and does not adhere the mesh that well. Store didn't have the goop. A minor setback.

    Amazing Job Squeegie! The build looks so spectacular! Can't take my eyes off of it.

    What did you use to cover the top of the front shock towers?
    Also which body are you using for this build?

    Thank you!

    The front shock tower top is just a piece of black 3" diameter PVC from Home Depot.

    The body in it's current form is a cage off a 1/10 Axial Yeti. The aluminum panels are from a vendor on eBay. Don't remember which one off hand. There are several to choose from on eBay.

    I chopped the frame and hood panels to make it fit how I wanted because of the modified front shock mount.

    Hi Squeegie, Were you able to mount the typhon body with the radio box positioned in the same location in the pics shown above? Or did you have to relocate it?

    No, the Rx box was relocated to the center of the chassis for the Typhon body. I could have mounted the body higher to fit it, but I like my bodies sitting as low as possible.

    Here is how the Rx box sits in that build:

    Will have the parts we talked about by the weekend I hope. Shipped today priority mail. Will be something different to try out.

    I also wanted to know how you liked the 8th scale shocks? Are they much of an improvement over the GTR's?

    Both work fine for me. I really liked my GTR's with VG Racing springs and Variable Damping Kit. I just changed them to the Vorzas because, well... idle hands! Gotta tinker!

    Good luck with your mods, keep us posted, and have fun!

    Oh, it'll be a while till I can do a build like this. lol. I just finished a build with my Rustler and it was not cheap.
    Heres the Thread:

    But a slash 4x4 has caught my eye and I want to get one. Used most likely because I'll end up replacing everything.

    But Your build is awesome. Looks so clean.
    Keep up the great work.

    Oh, haha, no worries.

    Yeah. I'm finding the Rustler my second favorite car so far. (Slash is first). It was a really fun build. Still have a few parts to upgrade, but it can wait.
    Its great he is getting his son into the hobby though. Its a great hobby and I wish I had a couple friends that owned a few.

    It is an old JConcepts Illuzion RC8e Hi-Flow body.

    JConcepts make them anymore, but you may still find some on-line.

    Something I noticed and never got around to asking you....

    I see the cage was mounted differently in #602, than it is in #614. Did you just slide the cage back and remount it...or was this something I overlooked in your build all together?

    The Slash\Yeti project of mine is still ongoing, and haven't decided on a more permanent mounting option yet.

    What I have ran into also is, if I mount the cage too far back, the rear wheels rub the cage...and if its too far forward, the front wheels will scrub the cage when turning. I'm not running the wider a-arms, so that is one factor. I AM running the extended 17mm hubs though.

    The top part of post #602 and post #614 are the same. The bottom part of #602 was how I originally mounted it before I put in the 1/8th shock mount plates and larger wheels/tires. In order to use the shock mounts, I had to chop off the front end of my cage.

    I never tried to put my 17mm 2.8 f-11 tire/wheel combo on it. This rig has 2.8 Pro-Line tires and 3.2 RPM wheels.

    Used a 1.5" piano hinge. Had a 12" piece, cut off 4" of it, and drilled some holes and mounted it to my rear shock tower. Works pretty good. This weekend, I will get the front mount completed. Not sure about the front bumper, but the rear has to go.

    That Yeti body looks sick! It's a perfect fit.
