    Bogging? Reving & more!

    Is not going into second gear is a high speed problem? To lean?

    Also, when pinching the fuel line and it revs up for 9 seconds mean its too rich?

    And sill no wheelies

    It could be too lean, but it could be too rich also. Is there a thick smoke trail?

    It's when it's at full throttle... If it's not shifting into 2nd gear, and there is a thick smoke trail, try leaning out the hsn. Also, yes, it sounds like your lsn is too rich.

    Which needle is related with wheelies?
    or is it a combination of both?

    It's really mostly about the lsn, but it can be both.

    So a rich lsn will cause the engine to rev up and rev longer when shutting off the engine n also limit torque when going for wheelies?

    Read the owners manual! You can get it off of the traxxas site in the support section. Best thing to do at this point is putting your needles back to factory settings and re tune.

    +1, sounds like your tune is way off. I would revert it all back to stock (4 turns out from closed with the HSN, and the LSN sitting flush with the inner bezel, and idle gap in carb should be around a 1mm gap.), and re-tune. Once the HSN needle is dialed in, and you get the LSN tuned properly, it'll be wheelies on demand!
