    Wheelie Bar Replacement that Wont Fall Off?

    Any recommendation on the best E-Revo wheelie bar which is screwed onto the vehicle?

    When I got my E-Revo 2.0 I also ordered the Traxxas wheelie bar which clips on. Looks like while bashing around, the wheelie bar became un-clipped. I didn't realize this until a few days afterwards and I checked the area where I was driving but can't find it.

    I like the Traxxas wheelie bar but find it to be annoying that it could randomly drop off since it's attached by a clip.

    Sorry to hear you lost yours. I tend to remove mine if in out bashing

    I moded my eRevo to have a maxx led kit with maxx bumpers.

    I'll have to double check. But I don't know if the wheelie bar will still work with this set up.

    If I find it no longer works with my set up, then I'd have one get rid of if interested.

    Secure the wheelie bar with a zip tie and you’re all set.

    I run the t-bone rear skid/wheelie bar. Pretty sure it was from the v1 and I had to make different holes for it to fit the v2. Looks like they changed the design a bit for the 2.0:

    I wound up cable-tying my wheelie bar on, because I got tired of it falling off. Now I just lose the spiffy rubber tires.

    I find your lack of teepee disturbing.

    I've gone to kevlar string wrapping my tires. 500lb test with ca glue on knots. keeps my tires from ballooning off on me.... I loose doing back flip jumps but link app says I get more mph.

    I like the integy one. You can’t adjust but it’s very durable

    I do the same on my 6S trucks. Would rather lose a bit of air control vs having to deal with tires blowing off rims constantly. I can still backflip pretty easy, but doubles are a challenge.

    It's the tires on the aluminum wheelie bar wheels I lose. At some point, I'll just put the plastic ones back on, I guess...

    Update, went with GPM.

    It's a little pricey but looks pretty and works well. It stayed attached even when I lost two screws that went through the tail support. I just used some longer screws I have in the kit from the suspension strap upgrade and I'm good again.

    I did buy the traxxas wheelie bar again as a back up... I might return it.
