Now i know we all have this problem but i have it to were i have so much power i pop wheelies in 2nd too..and i was thinking about getting some aluminuim front bumpers to weigh it down a bit to help. I still want all the power so im not going to mess with any of the tuning i have it tuned perfect.. so why not add some weight lol what you think?:confused:

I also messed witht he hieght and springs but i dont want to lossen them up cuz i still jump with it. so yeah i think just add a lil weight what you think?

You could also get the 5 cell rechargable receiver pack which will move weight forward and should help while actually not increasing overall weight.
I agree with Raceboy. Don't actually add weight...just get the 5-cell pack and start using it in the center battery box. This will reduce the weight over your rear tires and you will probably be very happy with the results. Think about how much those batteries weigh...that's a pretty good trasfer of weight from way out past the back wheels up to the middle of the truck.

Love the power, hmm. Well, I think I'm getting used to it. However, I let my father-in-law try it out. He has an eRustler. 3 minutes later - right front suspension arm, toe- and camber links, turnbuckle and draglink, and right rear wheel and camber link. Ouch.
Sorry Mick, but I'm laughing out loud at your post!! I know how it is with in-laws, how do you say "no" to them...you just can't. Did he at least offer to cover the repair expenses for you?? Not like you could ask him if he didn't offer though...I know how it goes. Him driving it was a mistake...that's like somebody who is used to riding a moped "trying out" your new GSXR-1000!! Lol... BUT, now that some stuff is broken, maybe it's time to upgrade a few things.....

I had to have his daughter tell him to forget about it - he wouldn't listen to me. He felt really bad. I told him if he hadn't done it, I would have, sooner or later. I guess he expected the thing to stop on a dime...

Glad to hear that he offered...that was cool of him. I bet he ends up getting one himself now that he realizes how fast that baby is!! Then you guys will have a friendly "battle of the hop-ups"...what a blast that would be!!
I know what you mean about the "CFO" thing. My own "Department of the Treasury" ran across a few extra hobby shop expenditures that we ended up laughing about. The fact that your Father-in-Law wiped out your truck will give you something fun to give him a hard time about for a long time...
