    RE: Tamiya Wild Willy 2 Resource Thread!

    There's no "here is the answer" in the RC world.. use heavier oil weight if you want more dampening and lighter if you want less.. you can also tune the dampening via the piston inside the shocks, so there's a lot of possibilities. You can run the rear a little bit harder so it does not squat as much under power, but then, you would have trade off when you are not pulling wheelie.

    So the answer? There's no "right" answers.

    Different companies have different system as well. For Tamiya, the standard is the #300/#400 range. For "medium", it is #500/#600/#700:

    And for "hard", it is #800/#900/#1000

    http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=53445

    For other brand, it is a different system.. 30 wt., 40 wt., etc.

    Don't remember (probably the Tamiya 300/400) and you can buy those 3 packs from Tamiya and try them all out if you want.. and like I said, you can also change the piston inside the shocks to change the dampening as well, so you don't even need a bunch of oil unless you want to go extreme in either direction..

    Short video with the custom wheelie bar. You can pretty much wheelie down the entire street with proper throttle control.

    There is NO best anything in RC. No one CARES about what is the fastest. Asking same question a million times WON\'\'T help.

    RE: Tamiya Wild Willy 2 Resource Thread!

    Since a set come with both left and right, you only need one set.

    For servosaver, since you don't have a metal geared servo, you cant run the stiffest one. Maybe you can just run the stock one for now.. Or you'd have to buy another one when you upgrade your servo...
