Default Axial Yeti FPV

After testing several vehicles I already had to see which one would make the best FPV vehicle I decided on my Axial Yeti. Mounted the Caddx Turbo Mini on a 9g mini servo. Mounted this setup on the roof. Mounted the vtx on the rear and powered it off the car battery directly so that it would get the required 7+ volts. For the test I used ny AIO camera on a magnetic mount. According to the Yeti manual it should have 10w oil in the rear. So I decided to see if 20w would be better. It wasn't so I put 10w back in, now the FPV is so bouncy that it's really hard to drive. Traded for the Yeti several years ago so I have no clue to what weight oil was in the rear shocks. I do know when I poured out the 1st batch it wasn't over thick. Think I'll try some 40w and work my way down from there.

Just couldn't get this where I was happy with it so I scraped the Yeti idea and bought a Redcat Shredder which is 1/6 scale should be a much more stable platform.
