View Full Version : Slayer Wheelies?!?
06-01-2012, 02:44 PM
Hey guys, I was just thinking about how my Slayer is performing and I realized my Slayer has NEVER done a wheelie. <_< Not even popped the front wheels off of the ground... It that normal? I noticed in the manual it said "When the lsn is tuned properly, it will be hard to prevent your slayer from poping a wheelie!" :O.o: I find that really un-true, because I tried tuning my hsn and the lsn many differnt times and I've never got it to pop a wheelie. My Slayer is BONE STOCK exept for the sway bar kit, :) so is there any mod I can do to make it do wheelies? I think the slipper clutch could be stopping it from popping a wheelie, but I don't want to over tighten it and ruin somthing. I've also noticed the spring in the engine clutch is rubbing the clutch bell when ever the clutch engages... I don't know what could be causing that, but I don't know if that normal...:confused: Any help would be nice! Thanks! -Wolfslash16

I have 2 slayer pros and either on can wheelie. My slipper is full tight (I like the power) I had each one pull a wheelie once and that was because of hitting a bump under full hard throttle. You could try to pull the front shafts to make it 2wd it might work but other wise I don't think it can do it. I could be wrong though. Just my expericnces have shown it can't

I can't get my slayer to wheelie either but I have the center diff. in it.

the only time i have seen a slayer pro pop wheelies on demand is one with a big block in it. and hitting a bump while accelarating is the only time i can get mine to pop up. never really been somewhere to get good enough traction. cause even with my duratrax lock ups on like grass i just twist half shafts. lol

I'm going to try this one again. My iPhone made it sounds different. Been too busy to respond
I have 2 slayer pros and NEITHER one can wheelie.
Sorry for the confusion
I have 2 slayer pros and either on can wheelie.

When i had my old slayer short chassis the only time i managed a wheelie was when it parachuted of a jump and i landed it on the rear end and kinda carried the runoff out of the jump. it would NEVER pull the front up out on the street. Then again i had nothing but tuning problems with the 3.3 in it, so it was obviously not up to top performance ever. And by the time i replaced the 3.3 with a picco .26 the truck had been converted into a revo.

If the tune is spot on, mine will wheel stand. Which i have only been able to do a few times. The temps usually have to be cool, around 45 deg.But, I am running a Force .28 carb and real low gearing (14/36). I recently put on a Buku pipe, now it lifts the right front tire about 2 inches on acceleration. The down side, i wore out the stock tires in one afternoon of hard running

yeah, mine doesnt wheelie either unless i hit bumps or something of that nature.

yea wish i could remember the video on youtube with the slayer pro with the bigblock but he would just tap the thottle and it would lift the front straight up.

i have a slayer pro completely stock ( not for long) and i haven't ever got the front tires off the ground. I think its because of the weight transfer and the low center of gravity because of the height and even more because the shock setup and motor placement

another problem for not really being able to do wheelies is traction. cause i know when my tune is on and i'm on pavement all four tires just spin back end slides out alittle and than it takes off. and i'm also running a spool in my rear diff...
