    Does a stock new Revo should wheelies?

    I just finished breaking and tuned my engine and I was wondering if it's normal that it doesn't wheelie. Maybe it's a sign that it's not properly tuned? Everythink is stock exect for ride height (shafts level).

    BTW, my goal is not to have it wheelie.

    Keep an eye on your slipper clutch, they are famous for coming loose when new, you want it tight enough that the gear leaves a mark on your thumb when you turn it while locked, I run mine tighten right down but don't do that

    It's no shelf queen, but it takes a beating and goes like a raped ape. How come your truck is so clean, beat the thing.

    Keep its center of gravity as low as possible and you should be fine. Even though I don't want mine to wheelie it nearly does at times even in 2nd gear if I do it right.

    But in short, out of the box and properly tuned it can wheelie.

    My experience: Wheelies = need slipper clutch tight = more often replacing stripped spur gear

    you can lean it out more, but just watch your temps.
