    How does everyone do it?

    How in the world do you get your Rustler VXL to stay on all 4 wheels when running 3S 3300? I changed over to the speed gearing as indicated on the box, but can't for the life of me stop flipping upside down.
    When I start from down the street, I can get around 80% throttle, but when I open her up all the way, the front end comes up and there's no stopping it by that part. The air gets under it and it's skidding upside down across the pavement. Wheelie bar doesn't do anything for it, and I am currently on my 3rd body. Only mods I have made have been the wheelie bar and gearing that I spoke of already, and I am running the Anaconda tires. Besides that, it's out the box stock.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Throttle control! My Rustler spent a lot of time on its lid when I first started running 3s until I learned to control it. Other than that, maybe put some weight in the front to keep the wheelies down.

    Also balance the wheels helps out a great deal + JayMcGill say Throttle control , If I run same size low profile tires all around that help , also + I tape mine to stop ballooning . I'm running 3S 5000 SPC 25c with 21/86 gears

    Run with a roll bar instead of a lid. That way the air doesn't lift up the truck as easily.

    Here's a pic of my Pede and Slash with roll bars from Integy (gasp..)
