ive seen a lot of b3's pull wheelies down the straight in mod class, but they were just off little bumps not from a standing start. i dont know if its just the b3's balance but i dont think ive seen a xxx pull one. but that was during a race and i dont think those b3s were doing it just to do it. but move your pack full back strap in a mod and gear for snappy accel. i dont think that the xxx4 will do it but any buggy should be able to do it.

Where did you get the B4 already?

For wheelies on the track, it has to do with the traction on it. There are a few tracks in the US that can get so sticky that we run smoothies (tires with no tread), once you are at that point, any sub 13 turn will pull a wheelie. Out on the street though, just get some motor in it I assume, I have put one of my cars on a non-track in about 8 years so I am guessing from what I have seen.

Oh, you said you just got, like you already received it but Tower hasn't even gotten theirs as of yet. So you actually don't have a B4 yet.

Wow, according to Associated shipping, Towers didn't go out until Wednesday this week (you made that post on 3-17) which means they wouldn't have them until Monday or Tuesday of the week to come and their website still says none in stock, guess you got the time portal kit.

I am on your back because you posted that almost half a month ago and the car just hit shops this week. Also if you goto the link below they still don't show any in stock. On top of that if you goto every thread about B4's no one could find a place that had them up until 2 days ago. HRP Distributing just got 25% of their order on Thursday as well. I just found it highly unlikely that you got it 13 days ago unless you run for AE. But hey what do I know, I only talked to the OEM account handler at AE (So I knew who got sent what distributor wise and when), multiple distributors, and plenty of online shops. If you really got the car 13 days ago than you really should be selling stuff in this industry, I even know two of the engineers that built that car and couldn't get one that early, so kudos to you.

look i have the car, im not goin to lie about having the car, when theres people like you out there trying to catch someone in a lie cause they have nothing else to do. At the time that i said i just got the car, i had ordered it ok it came 6 days ago, so get off my back about it. considering i was laid off the other day im not in the best mood

You say here that you GOT it, that means you have it in your possesion, if you said "I am getting a rc10b4" than I would have never questioned it or even "I ordered a rc10b4". No reason to get so worked up about it, but if I see BS than I am going to call it. Notice that I came in here and answered your question to the best of my ability, if all I want to do is catch people I don't know and will most likely never meet in lies on a internet forum, I wouldn't have given you my advice.

As for your job I am sorry, I have been laid off twice in this market already so I know the feeling.
