I have not seen any other wheelie bars other than what you have provided. I would not recommend buying one though, if you race then it will slow you down when if lifts the front. The best advise would be to ease into throttle or punch it back off and WOT again. Even better, relocate the batteries to the front end.

i dont race, i just run the rustler anywhere i can..........but u are right that it will add more weight.....but is there any other way i can do wheelies without flipping over......and no i wont let go of the throttle:D

anyone ever seen Spreewell rims for the rustler? i seen them for the T and E Maxx but they are HUGE!!!!!!!!!! thats like the size of the whole car............:(

My concern wasnt the added weight, when the wheelie bar hits the ground it will take most of the weight off the drive wheels and they will lose traction.

Actually, wheelie bars can help you in a race. I use mine to stop it from getting too much of a wheelie, and it puts the nose back down on the ground. It depends on how you set it up.

It would help you if it sat very close to the ground and allowed almost no from wheel lifting at all. But that would mean that any bashing would probably ruin it.

MaxxEmine: where did u get ur wheelie bars?

I got mine at my LHS. It is a RAMTech-RC wheelie bar though.

you have a maxx dont you. If not what did you do to make them fit on the rustler.

I used a broken E-Maxx skid to make a skidplate to bolt it to. Somehow, you have to get it out in the back. I haven't seen anyone who makes a direct bolt on for the Rustler. I looked for a few months, and haven't found it.

When your into your wheelie, ease off the throttle a bit. Keep practicing until you can keep the wheelie going for a long time.
