    Question Wheelie bar?

    Hello Guys,

    I think the answer is no, but will the wheelie bar from the E-Revo fit in the Summit?

    If not, are there any plans to release one?

    Thanks!

    Daniel.

    the original traxxas Doesn't fit it has to be the wheelie skid bar, and it is available from different manufactures.

    It works. I have it on mine. Keeps from those pesky back flips when I get a little throttle heavy

    Are you running 3s? I though that wheelie bar was attached to the wing mount?

    I am running SPC 2S batteries. With stock gearing and stock tranny, mine was a wheelie machine! From a dead stop, rolling to full throttle, etc. Even in grass and semi loose gravel. Grant it, I'm a little heavy on the throttle After the tranny flip, it would wheelie from a dead stop, but that was about it (which I wanted for more trail/climbing stuff)

    I took the stock rear bumber (not the bumper mount) off and put the wheelie bar on. Once I get feeling a little better (pesky head cold) I'll try and post a pic or two of what I did.

    Evanhuntrc how do you like the rpm arms in the rear, how do they perform compared with the stock ones?

    They are 5mm shorter than stock (the were for the MERV) so you're going to lose some width. This will also effect handling, etc. I don't drive this like a MERV, so high speed stability isn't as big of a deal to me as it may be to you.

    Other than that, they've been great so far. CRAZY durable. I broke 2 stock arms in a week. These have been bulletproof (thus far). I also have the RPM carriers. They've also been great.

    How's the wheelie bar working for you? Mine seemed to be so soft and just flips back.

    Mine works great, and I fit the rear bumper back on too. I'll get a few pics up when I can, but it works great for me.
