    RE: Wild Willy 2 w/ pics

    They appear straight....

    I took it to the hobby shop just the otherday and the owner told be to adjust the wheels so that it both of it point outwards. I tried that and now it drifts left. So I readjusted it back to straight. and now its kinda like anything goes.

    Its not apparent when you move short distances, but when you move long distances in a straight line (like say 15 feet) then you can see it drifiting.

    RE: Wild Willy 2 w/ pics


    Does it always drift one way??

    If not, it could be just the slop in the steering system. I changed my steering servo saver to the heavy duty unit one from Kimbrough....

    It's not a high tech machine, don't expect it to go straight ahead.

    Does it turn to the left/right or does it slide to the left/right.

    RE: Wild Willy 2 w/ pics

    No it doesn't turn at all.....

    It tends to slide to the left/right.....


    What about the bit about the having both front wheels facing outwards, is that something thats generally true for most RC's?

    RE: Wild Willy 2 w/ pics


    If it goes to left sometimes, and right sometimes -> there's slop in your steering system.. which, you may or may not be able to fix.. (a better servo saver would help..) Tighten down your servo some...

    Both wheel facing outwards -> that's called toe-out.. it helps you with turn in, make it turn better, but you lose some stability.. with wheel facing inward, toe-in, you will track more straight.. but the car does not turn as well..

    Not like a Wild Willy ever turn that well.. (front tires not touching the ground = hard to turn.. LOL!)

    Can you take a picture of the bottom showing the lower control arms? I am thinking you might have accidentally reversed one side.

    Right, but are you talking about MY WW-2? Or someone else's WW-2? Like this?!



    You can duplicate what I did with stuff from Tower and rcMart....

    The upper link kit (adjustable links) are Tamiya hop-up (TL-01 links), the motor heatsink = Tamiya stuff.. (Tower or rcMart)

    The metal stuff from rcMart..

    The harden outdrive = Tamiya.. (Tower or rcMart)

    Kimbrough servo saver = Kimbrough, you can get that from Tower..

    Good luck!! Let me know if you have any specific questions...

    RE: Wild Willy 2 w/ pics

    Maybe he's more Mortal Kombat than Ninja....can you tell me which MK character this is?

    His helmet says, "Will" in Katakana symbols. I tried my best to copy it.

    ya, Sub Zero, nice call!

    I used to love MK when it came out for PS2, I don't even have the game anymore, but it was still fun when you had a few ppl to play.

    The colors I had determined the character...LOL
