    put on rear battery box as said above, do your best on tuning, and dial down the rear spring and do the opposite at the front, good traction serface & tires such moabs should make it easier for you.
    hope this helps.

    Why not just gear it shorter and get instant wheelies. No one says you have to run stock gearing. Try 24/56 or 24/58. That should do it and a new SG is only $3 bucks.

    If you put the battery box in the back, can you still do fast accelerations or top speed?

    Cause it might be coming up too much

    Yes, car accelerates and has great top end.If I punch throttle,that is when it pulls front wheels.On smooth constant acceleration front end stays down and is easier to steer-LOL

    Hmm alrighty might try that then! Gotta see if i prefer it. Thought most of the people would centre the battery pack.

    Cheers dude

    go moabs it will not spin and should give you the best
    gripping and surface traction available.

    given it wheelies in second over a crack, check that the throttle is opening all the way?

    My son in laws 2.5 rusty will now wheelie after I showed him how to adjust the linkage. I check on all my models and almost always need adjustment.
