Default t-maxx

The instruction said that if I tune my t-maxx correctly, it would be hard NOT to do a wheelie. But I find it impossible, is it me or is the instruction is wrong?

i know but my friend has a completely stock one and they put spacers in the shocks to stiffen them up...well he couldn't pull wheelies so he tried removing them and now he can pull them all the time...also it is alot easier for him to pull them on grass due to increased grip over my drive way he can do them well in the dirt too.

i see... I will try and remove the spacer. But it is so hard to tune the engine, some time I see a big difference depending on the weather too! is there any way I can tell if the engine is in good condition?

try removing the spacer that should help

weather makes a HUGE impact on how your truck runs...for example if I start running around 5 then run it till about 7:30 because it gets so much cooler out and the air gets more dense it is necessary for you to richen the needle settings.

so yes you will need to make slight adjustments to your tunning as the weather changes


as for testing an engine...you can test compression by turnig the flywheel with your fingers (glow plug must be in and tight) and if there is some resistance good, normally the more the better...OR you can take a trip to you LHS(local hobby shop) and have them test it with a compression gauge and they will be able to tell you more accurately the condition of your engine.
