Default Bandit VXL - Wheelie problem

I cant keep the front wheels on the ground with my new Bandit

Can you do anything to stop this?

Do they sell wheelie bars anywhere?

Forget about lipo, the thing is insane fast withour it.

i would say keep it the same. harden it and you'll end up as you were.

wait, when is doing wheelies a problem?

i think loosening the slipper will help. get your wrench, and a place where you normally drive. drive as normaly as you would, doing wheelies. then take your wrench, and loosen the slipper in 1/4th turn, counterclockwise. then run it again, and see what happens. if it still wheelies, repeat. it'll take a few adjustments as you gradually loosen it, but eventually it will loosen to the point where it wont wheelie, IF thats what you want!

cheers!

Run a stiffer spring in the rear. This will help to keep the weight in the front of the car so it doesn't wheely.

not trying 2 sound 'smart-assy' but wont that just let the weight transfer 2 the rear fasta??....and the rear end would squat more then aswell.....

but then again i guess there is a balance point between soft and 2 soft......

u could put sum weight in the front if u really wantd 2.....if u dont plan on racing it...but yea....slipper is a good idea.....but then if it slips too much it could cause xcessiv heat??? does this sound like a problem 2 any1....??


n u could gear it up as quoted above

Default Wheelies

You bought a buggy that was basically designed to do wheelies if you had much power. Buy the Traxxas wheelie bar and you will carry the front wheels less.
