    Cant get it to wheelie

    I just got a power up from brushed to the velineon 380 motor and esc, but I cant get it to wheelie. Ive seen it happen but it just wont go. I dont know if there's something that I have to do to wheelie. I'm not sure if the shocks need to be tighter or not. If you know how to get it to wheelie, can you please help me? Thanks

    Make sure your slipper is tight and that the ESC isn't in training mode. The brushless system will make your summit wheelie even if it didn't have shocks so that's not the problem! All you have to do wheelie is pull the trigger!

    Also, my MERV only wheelied on a full charge with stock batteries... but all the time on LiPo.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    +1 on the lipo batteries. I always assume everyone is using lipos since these trucks are insane on lipo power!

    make sure you dont have a center diff also. I put one in my merv and it really kept it from doing wheelies easy

    My son was doing back flips with his too often. I adjusted the preload down on the rear springs and that seemed to do the trick.
    Tekno wing mount, Pro-Line wing, Maximizer X-75s, and Maxx Mashers.

    Careful on the back flips! Very hard on the diffs and gets expensive!
