Vanquish Products centered rear axle for Axial Wraith a…

One of the coolest scale upgrades in recent years for the Axial Wraith (and now the Yeti) are the Currie Rock Jock Axles from Vanquish Products.

Everybody's Scalin' For the Weekend - Locking a Yeti Di…

The Axial Yeti is a capable “do it all” type of truck, what-with a plush suspension, 4wd and a solid locked rear / open independent front setup.
