    No, it shouldn't be any louder than the stock one. Maybe a video to show us? Your gear mesh probably isn't set right.

    Put a paper between the gear for ajusting the gear mesh.

    That actually sounds about right, I can't really tell through the video but it seems good. As long as you're not getting chips of your spur gear in where your slipper clutch is you will be fine, if you are, then it's too tight. You could try TheJang's method of setting your gear mesh by sound as found in the video below.

    My 3s Lipo allows my 4x4 to do wheelies on command. 2s will do it i'm sure if you tighten your slipper clutch down. I don't reccommend it as you could break driveline parts if your slipper is too tight, but that is a way you can get wheelies when not using a 2s or 3s LiPo.

    No problem. Trust me, on LiPo's, the 4x4 Stampede is a freaking wheelie king. That's one of the reasons why I love it so much .

    I have found, with the limited testing ive done, that wet ground is not ideal for this truck. There was a thread about it earlier, but even with badlands tires the truck just wants to spin out. The inconsistent surfaces, mostly the higher grip areas, cause the truck to spin and spinning wont help wheelies.
