Default traxxas wheelie bar problem

The traxxas wheelie bar has some serious mounting issues, has anyone figured out a easy mod to remedy this? If not who makes a decent wheelie bar that doesn't have these problems.

If its the Rustler/Stampede version that snaps into place, use two zip ties around the snap on piece through the wheeled portion to secure it. It will never pop off again.

I set mine one from the highest position so it can still wheelie but doesnt interfere when offroad.

RPM makes a decent looking Wheelie Bar for Traxxas.

The stock one is quite good and cheap if you ever bugger it up you can buy one for less than $10. You can buy 3 stock ones for the price of one Swami bar.

Just throw the two zip ties around it and make sure the wheel nuts have some lock tite on the threads and you should be good. Ive had my Stampede for a while and never had an issue with the stock wheelie bar.
