    wheelies?

    have any of u guys gotten your slayer to wheelie? it has to be possible. all it should need is a stiffer rear end right? i know tmaxxas and some revos wheelie and they weight 3-4 pounds more

    They wheelie because of the higher Center of gravity. Slayer is low to the ground you would need immense power to make it wheelie.

    It might.. stiffen the rear suspension, raise the truck.. and lean out that engine you might get some wheelies.

    Wheelies are really bad for your drivetrain by the way. Rear differentials, rear center shafts and front differential, front center shaft when it lands again.

    I have rode out a wheelie with mine.....way I got it to wheelie is slam the brakes on and then go WOT and it will pull a wheelie and ride if for a while. I am going out Sunday and will see if I can get a vid of it.

    just removed the body and install bigger wheel, it will do some wheelies easy!
    I have 15 r/c's and my slayer & slash are the best

    I have done a couple wheelies with mine. I have the stock suspension and tires though so if I could some switch tires and stiffend the suspension I am sure I would do more.

    the little tube on the pipe where the exhaust exits. it's what the rubber tube connects to. you take a 13/64 drill bit and drill the inside diameter of the stinger out. it helps give it a little more bottom end torque.

    you just have to make sure you take the pipe off before you drill it so you can blow out the shavings so they won't get in the motor.

    a 16/40 combo has a ratio of 2.50 and i'm running a 14/36 which is 2.57 so they are pretty close in ratio.

    i dont think that holding the wheelie is the problem, its getting the front end off the ground
