How-To: Upgrade the Steering Servo on the Axial Yeti Jr. Rock Racer

I gauge the interest that I have in a radio-controlled vehicle on how often I reach for it before heading out for a drive. Lately, my go-to machine has been the Axial Yeti Jr. Rock Racer, a vehicle that I didn’t expect to be the level of fun with as I currently am.

As I’ve reached the half-way point in my review of Axial’s latest R/C machine, a few small items could stand to be improved.

The largest item has been the strength of the steering servo. After noting some of the issues with stock Tactic servo, I did some research and decided to swap it out for a Savox SH-0263-MG.  Performing this upgrade is fairly simple, and you should be in-and-out within 30 minutes.
