    Did your flip the wheelie bar over? I might do the same.... It looks like mine is going to catch with just a little air.

    Not yet. I've been running it strictly on pavement so far and the tires don't seem to be getting enough traction to pop a wheelie.

    Is that a stampede wheelie bar? Yours looks to be pointing up. Mine was already put together so I didnít notice if I could pull the back off and flip it. Mine points down in the back.

    OP: Welcome to the Traxxas forums!
    Nice job! Your BackSlash looks like fun!

    Caleb: The wheelie bars are adjustable.

    Good to know. Iím still on the fence about running them but Iím going to crank it up to start. I just donít want to get it up into the wing and have to replace it on the regular.

    I think so. Traxxas 3678. I have it set a little high right now. I believe its the second to highest setting.

    I was prob going to take mine where yours is Hahahaha. I donít want the car to unload and tumble. I can get out of the throttle if it gets too far over.

    They're cheapo 1/8 buggy wheels and tires from a seller on eBay called Suprasales.

    Something worth noting, Typhon 3s wheels and tires are $35 on jennysrc. I would have bought these for my backslash if I saw them before I shelled out twice that for the duratrax.
