As I knew if you enjoy wheelie then you need some upgrades. Otherwise you don't need to change anything. But I knew it is hard not to pull wheelie when you have a lot power.
First you need stronger rear rims. Aluminum rims or change the hex-adapter to bigger one.
When you pulling wheelie the clutch bell is very hot. And the pinion gear is very hot,too. So it will melt away the plastics spur gear. So you need to have a fan to lower the temp of the clutch bell if you are a wheelie fanatic.
Also you need a 5th wheel fitted on the rear bumper. See the attachment. That is very important! You will damage your engine's cooling head if you don't have the 5th wheel. STS28 has too much torque. When you kick down the throttle the car just backward somersault.
Because it rains almost 2 weeks here. So we can only play R/C cars under the overhead highway. Now is rain season in Taiwan
