    whatever weight you want to put in it..... stock is 30k i believe....


    some people run 100k in theirs, some run 5k ...... all a matter of personal preference

    I think 50k is stock and will pretty much kill any wheelies.100k will be a good balance, still get some wheelies and better handling on a track

    50k is stock, but it did not kill my wheelies... I could still wheelie if I wanted with the stock system and 50k.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Maybe off the line but it mellows a lot of the excitement of the merv

    What is up with mervs and their un-killable wheelies? I mean, can someone not punch it on the tabletop without the front end lifting up? I'm going to stick 2 ounces on the front end if mine does wheelies.

    I can still pull one if I completely punch and hold the throttle, but punching it and feathering it out allows for the power to be planted a lot faster and easier. It does not wheelie uncontrollably like it did before... the best of both worlds in my opinion.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Jimmie, what weights do you feel is a good compromise? 50-50-30? Feathering the throttle is no problem since 2wd buggy driving IS feathering the throttle.

    That is what I grew up doing... at least when I got into REAL RC!
    My first speed demon was a RC10GT.

    I run 30-50-30 and 30-100-30... but feel that tightening up the rear would not hurt.
    (and probably will be done next rebuild)

    Keep in mind that oil weights are really a personal preference thing.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
