Default Tmaxx Gearing? Help Please.

ok guys I have a tmaxx 3.3 on a 2.5 chassis and trans. I am currently running 18/72 gears on it and it does good but wont do a wheelie for nothing. I like top speed but also want it to do a wheelie on demand. Any suggestions on what gears will be right for me?

Is it piped or stock plastic pipe? We have one same setup and it is a wheely monster. How tight is you're slipper? All the way tight and about a half turn back is what we run.

Changing to an aftermarket pipe will help. If you are just trying to do wheelies you can also try softening the rear suspension and the weight transfer will help also.
