What kind of buggy are you using? What engine, gearing?

Questions??

OFNA Ultra LX One with stock gearing and force .28. I also just broke my pullstart. Does anybody know how to fix it or what I should do to get a new one?

try this vid see if it helps you fix your pullstart. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1_Y2ukDp4M

With the small tire width of the buggy tires, getting a nice wheelie will be more trouble than its worth. Buggies just are not designed to wheelie.

Fill the diff with rubber-ties or pieces of a shreded t-shirt.

Stiffen up the center diff to like 100K, install a Clockwork Picco 28 and a set of Badland tires...it will pull wheelies effortlessly and if you nail it too hard it will go right over on its back !

Yep, if you want to lock the diff, but not permanently.

Also, makes sure you put stiff rear springs on the rear so that the front to rear weight transfer isn't all absorbed by your rear suspension squatting on take-off.

Remove the Front diff from the equation and lock up the center diff. Add some weight to the rear and maybe it will get the wheels off the ground. Good luck...I guess
