Default Make a 1/8 buggy wheelie?

Is it possible to make a 1/8 buggy wheelie? I was thinking of maybe putting 15K or 30K in the center and 5K or 7K in the front/Rear... That along with some 60-70 weight shock oil in the rear. Or what type of setup would possibly make a 1/8 buggy wheelie if it would hit a small bump/rut for a little help?

Just going to have some fun with an extra buggy that I don't race with..

maybe you could lock the center diff and take out the front drive shaft and run heavy diff fluid in the rear diff. it will probably wheelie best on pavement

My buggy routinely picks up the front tires after landing jumps wrong with only 3K in the centre, so some 30K would definately let it stand up pretty good.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm going to try some of these.

I've got a Sportwerks .21 that has been ported/polished by myself, power increased a bunch. Should be fun to try and make this thing wheelie on command....

here, I'll explain to you guys how it works.
The silly putty in the center diff will lock it up w/out causing any damage to it. This will allow the rear tires to have power when the front is off the ground.

The soft springs in the rear will help the weight of the car to transfer to the back of the car. This will give you superior rear traction and leave the weight of the car on the rear end so that it takes less torque to lift the front of the car. This should make it wheely all day on demand.

I will have to pick up some silly puddy. I did just put 50K in the center diff. Still building the car. How about 70WT in the rear shocks?

This is going to be cool... a 1/8 buggy doing a wheelie on command!

Ya I making some silly puddy this weekend to give it a try.

I want the buggy to wheelie on command without my intervention of touching the buggy... This buggy is just a play/fun buggy.... going to use it on a skateboard ramp, see if it will survive. It's a PRP Swift buggy I bought SUPER cheap.
