For me if the buggy wheelies after landing is always kinda cool. Sometimes you can enjoy it so much that you have mastered the art of wheeleeing your buggy. Its all in the drive style.
You problem is really throttle control. You on the throttle too early after landing. Most setups will make the buggy do that after landing. The buggy lands and the springs load up , you throttle and it wheelies.

Play around with your drive style and you will get your groove.

Just for info:
thicker centre oil reduces wheelie effect: eg to 10k
Also ride height. Make sure its level.
After ride height spring rebound. Thinner oil more bounce, thicker slower rebound.
Stiffer spring als requires thicker oil for same effect.

Hope this helps.

Well I know I moved my front shocks to the outer holes on top and it caused me to bounce like that so I moved mine back to the middle hole. What holes do you have your shocks mounted in? I run 5-5-3 in my buggy. And it seems to work pretty good. I'm still new somewhat so I try different things when I hear about them.
