The Highly Visual™ Axial Yeti Trophy Truck

Since everyone always asks about the Highly Visual™ RC here's the spill all of what went into the build. The build was based off an axial racing Yeti Trophy Truck. A custom 1/4" steel tube TT style roll cage was fabricated and added under the Yetti Retro body, which was custom painted in house from the inside out. Our live-wire bolts were painstakingly laid in matte black over the top to give it our signature stand-out look. In the rear Axial ultra 4 light kit and radiator/fan kit was added for a realistic look from the back. Up front sits an Axial bumper light bar combo. Holes were drilled through the grill and stock light bar mounts were used to hold it in place. A custom valance was cut and bent up front to give the body a more authentic Trophy Truck look. The highlight of the build is focused on the custom built 7 canister TT style light bar that sits up top. The bar was fashioned with 1/8" steel tube, and a jig was made to ensure the proportions would be correct. Like the real thing it is detachable and is mounted to the custom built roll cage. Stock axial light bar supports bars were used to secure it to the roof. Other noteworthy details include custom built TT style antennas, authentic window nets, chrome gold driver visors, carbon filled exhaust tips, and enough sponsor decals to make your head spin.
