Default Firehammer MT Wheelie ?

HI,

Did anyone saw or did wheelie with the Firehammer MT/Carson Comanche ?
I saw tons of video of 1/5 buggies and monsters, only the FG cars wheelie pretty easy from what I saw.
I checked and found that both the FG Monster truck/beetle and the Firehammer MT weight almost the same and have almost the same dimensiones.

Correct me if i'm wrong but I thnk FG come with lower gear ratio, not 19-48 like the firehammer.

Any info would be appreciate,
Roei.

Mine will wheelie in the grass when it feels like it. I'm sure the wheelies on a firehammer can happen with the right gear ratio, the pipe you are using, and/or the engine size.

Of course.
All of those elements eventually related to power that go to the wheels.
What gear ratio do you run ? what pipe and engine ?

I have the 48 tooth spur and the 19 tooth pinion. I wish I knew of another ratio.

I just have the stock CY23 and a DDM mid/high pipe. I kinda wish I had bought the low range DDM. It's fast with it though.

Interesting, I never heard or seen MT with stock setup wheelie.
I know the pipe you have, a friend of mine running it on his Smartech Monster and it goes fast.
I ordered for my MT a 17T pinion and 48 spur, both from steel, from RC-CAR-ONLINE.
We'll se how it's going.

Let me know if that 17 tooth meshes with the 48t spur.

Keep in mind that I said it wheelies in the grass when it feels like it. I'm sure it is due to traction.
