Quick Pics: Yeti XL vs XCR...Yep, even the giant 8th scale is no match for a real 5th scale.
And here's the out of the box problem I was talking about
Again, really not sure how that could have happened, it's like something pinched both of them the exact same way, right on top of the grommet. Very odd.
Otherwise, the reasons I ended up going with the XCR:
$700 ARR, just a really good deal when compared to the DBXL.
Losi MTXL a tad too big, didn't want the tires or the body.
No DBXL v2 Gas-version in site for right now
Parts compatibility with DBXL
Now I know I'm leaving out the 5ive-T/B, but that's on a completely different price level for now. I'm also not really adding the Baja 5B/T since they're non existent in this area and I didn't want to go used with gas nor with the clones yet either. Sounds weird but I'd also like to take a break from electric, I'm just tired of buying/managing batteries and would rather mix gas. I also don't want to spend $200 on batteries for <30 mins of run time. Otherwise, I have ideas for a large track, and the two-stroke sound won't be an issue without any neighbors around. I don't plan on beating the hell out of it with 50 foot jumps, just taking it for hill climbs and cruising around. I expect to have it running by next weekend, just gotta pick up servos, killswitch, battery, and RX.
