    I race so Wheelies are something we try to avoid... But suspension setup will have a ton to do with it...

    If your springs are soft and your truck squats the energy is not transferring to the ground..... I'd definitely want to stiffen up the rear springs, maybe adjust the front so it rides a little higher....


    But locking your slipper is asking for problems, don't do it ...

    AS far as tuning, read this about tuning and tune your LSN as well as your HSN and always tune with 1/2 a tank...

    As far as your slipper, you have the black tranny, that would be tighten the slipper all the way down and back it off just 1/4 a turn, no more... Also I recommend using 12 of the red slipper pegs for slightly more friction yet still allowing it to slip when needed... Beats rebuilding your diffs or tranny...

    So the rear sespension should be harder then the front so it doesnt squat as much when you accelerate hard? and it might do wheelies?

    First thing to do is put all 12 friction pegs in the slipper like NN recommended.
    Second thing is get some duel rate springs from Ebay to replace your super~soft stock springs.
    Third get your tune dialed in & it should pop a wheely.
    You will find wheelies over rated though, you have very little control over where the truck goes with the front end in the air for any length of time.
