    Have you tried tightening your slipper clutch?

    Also, what batteries are you running?

    I can hardly keep mine from doing wheelies...and it's bone stock.
    Have you tried a single 2s Lipo?

    Do you have a brushed or brushless? I am assuming you have brushed, because I can not figure out how you could keep a brushless version from doing wheelies. Unless you were geared really high on the pinion, like in the uppper twenties or something.

    i have not tried a lipo and i dont really intend to
    and its a brushless edition
    it might be beacause of the snow and ice but i dont think so
    i was also wondering if a smaller pinion makes it go faster, or the oposite
    and what gearing to use

    What gear are you running on your pinion? 16 pinion, and 55 spur are stock. I run 18/55 with no heat issues, unless I am running in heavy grass. With 2s lipo, at about half throttle, I can pop a wheelie on a good surface. A smaller pinion will make it go slower top end, but have more exceration. A bigger pinion will make it go faster, with less exceration.

    I am running stock pinion and stock batteries in parallel but i have a 19t pinion on hand

    What pinion should i use for Speed ? Is changing the spur something i should do?

    You could go with the 19, maybe not good if you are running snow and ice. Good for speed runs on pavement. Mine mostly runs on pavement, hard packed dirt, or short grass. You would want to keep an eye on your temps with a temp gun. I dont make to many long speed runs, back to back, so I can get away with the 18. I think the only other spur is a 50, which would give you even more top speed, with out gearing down on your pinion.

    Cool that should work. I'll try when the snow melts
    That should be in about 2 months
