    I've seen this item.
    It's beautiful, but I think it should be a little bit... unsteady... But' it's just my opinion !

    I would go with the new era one. That one looks cool but when it is in use I don't think it will be mutch help except slow it down from flipping.

    it looks cool, but thats @ it...what happens when you wheelie when really moving and all the wheels of the truck are off the ground?...mine does that allot...i prefer stock bar w/the red/rubber traxxas upgrade wheels...two wheels on the ground are better than just one when all 4 tires of the truck are off the ground IMO...w/only one wheel stability becomes an issue w/that wheelie bar...

    if you do like a wheely kinda of center it will brobably flip to the side that is more lifted... and why do people upgrade the wheely bar what is wrong with the stock one?

    actually the only thing i have changed on the wheelie bar is the wheels i went with the ballbearing anodized ones they spin nice and seem to give a bit more control when wheeling

    It looks a little heavy to me. I think it would make you wheelie more but I don’t think it would be very stable. Have you ever used a three legged stool?

    It's Integy, that's enough to steer me away from it. You'll probably bend that thing the first tumble your Jato takes. I'd rather keep the factory plastic wheelie bar than pay good money for Integy junk.

    I bought mine because the aftermarket wheelie bar is lower in height. It doesn't let the front end come up so high.



    I bought one off ebay which is great but it was double the price.

    I just can't believe you can buy the one from integy for 35 bucks and I paid almost double that. I was going to place a link but I didn't want it to get construed that I was trying to sell something.... just something I found on ebay.

    Though it works great, definitely not the quality of the integy. (not sure how well the integy one works but I'm with the rest of the guys.... as much as the jato wheelies, it seems sometimes it's only on one wheel already, I just don't see a wheelie bar with one wheel helping)

    it seems that the 2 wheel one would have btr balance like a one wheeled wheel-barrle it is harder to keep balenced than a 2 wheeled
