    Weight on front to keep down

    Im thinking of putting sum sort of weight on the front of my Slash 4x4. Any suggestions??? I'm running Monster Mamba 6s lipo 22/50 gearing and I can't go pass 3/4 throttle b4 she picks up and flips over. Also are there any wheelie bars I can consider? I have a 26 tooth pinion that I haven't even put on yet. SMH <------- This is actually 1 of the best problems I have ever had n my life. Lol Thx for any help

    The Stampede 4x4 has a wheelie bar that will bolt right on. You could also loosen your slipper a little. Sounds like a good problem to have

    I wonder if it would be possible to make the body more aerodynamic to combat this sort of thing. Would a Flotek body help at all? Maybe some kind of jury-rigged front-end spoiler to push the body down? Is it the body or the chassis that causes it to catch air? Does the same thing occur without a body? If not, maybe a rollcage?

    I'm running pretty much stock so I have no experience in this kind of power but I'm kind of interested in the solution nonetheless.

    I only run it with rollcage, anything else is unacceptable!!! Lol I think the chassis causes it to catch air.

    You are right! I do my high speed runs with only my New Era roll bar. You might want to try one

    It makes it so you can run safely without the body and it stiffens the chassis, and shock towers

    if you have the RPM rear bumper, you can get wheels that bolt on to where the mudflaps bolt on.

    Did you get the Stapmede 4x4 wheelie bar or the Stampede wheelie bar? It makes a difference.
