What turn motor are you running? Like it was posted earlier try more rear anti-squat. Also, try less front droop. Less droop will transfer less weight to the rear on throttle. Check to make sure your center diff is working correctly. How much fluid are you running in the diffs? I guess if you are filling them too full it could be causing it to hydro lock.

I run them full just like ty builds them. The 80 helped the issue but it hurt the handling everywhere else so I know the diff is working correctly. I'm going to try more anti squat to start as that's what I was thinking. ill go from 1 to 2 and see what that does then play with droop some if I still have the issue. It has a 6.5 in it but it is way faster then any other car at the track so I'm going to go to a 7.5. My 6.5 feels like a 5.5 compared to my 22-4 or zx6 so I think that might be part of it as well. So hopefully those too changes will fix the issue I'm having.

not sure if its just the way the car is designed but we have experienced the wheelies as well. we both just try and pay attention to the wheels as they lift i lift, not always successfully. its like comparing American muscle cars to European sports cars. a couple of the guys at out track run the 22-4 and their cars seem lightning quick but our cars seem to have more bottom end power.

I'm running the schelle chassis. Which is aluminum and plus 3 but I think I know the issue and will report back once I run the car again.

The Schelle Alum I thought was mainly for High Grip and Astro....
I run the Schelle Carbon fiber stretch and don't have any wheelie issues and our indoor track is Med-High bite when watered.

For you wheelie guys, maybe adjust the ESC so there's less power on the bottom end? Or adjust the throttle expo to make it softer on initial acceleration. You must have crazy power and traction to have a problem with wheelies in this car.

I'm going to go from 3 to 2 on the punch and trying a 7.5 so hoping that fixes it.

I'm having a hard time mounting my transponder. How is everyone mounting theirs? I have seen a few mount it on the servo. Seems like the best place by the wire only just reaches in shorty configuration.
