So we at RC Patrol have decided to start a video series called “The Axial Trials” in which we take the RC Patrol Axial fleet to the upper limits. We want to see how they hold up when used to the max on each terrain we discover. We are not planning this out, but instead, we are staking out locations and hitting them hard for the first time using our Axial RC rigs. Being in Georgia tends to give one a broad choice of terrain, and we plan to test it all under the wheels of our rigs.
The first video in the series is Mulch Madness starring the Axial Yeti RTR and the builder’s kit Jeep Wrangler G6 and takes place on a large pile of mulch found at Cochran Mills Park in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia. There will be more than one video from this location as it is the filming grounds for The Walking Dead and a few other movies. The terrain is massive. One trip is just not enough, but we did dig in aggressively on the mulch. RC Patrol is planning on doing an “Axial Trials” video each week, so stay tuned…
The Yeti is much like a buggy when it is unleashed, but it has the bashing capability of a monster truck. The torque is some wonderful when you squeeze the trigger to set it free from a stand still. This was one of those times when I really felt good about the purchase of my Yeti and nothing broke while bashing either. I did, however, throw the tire off bead, but I have a fix for that. The Super Swamper XL by Proline just does not like to stay on the stock Yeti rims, so I glued the right side tire to the wheel to see what would happen. It worked! The proof was the left side flying off at the end of the session and the right side still snug as a bug in a rug. I know now to glue them all and just get new wheels when I wear them out if I can’t get the glue to release. Nice to know indeed, and I know now that I should have gotten some glue-on wheels instead of trying beadlocks with the Proline Swampers.
