Adjust the "L" screw so it has more initial snap off the line, and add a pipe as TFGman said.
Wheelies get old after a while, and if you want to do a lot of them, you need a wheelie bar as they will have enough torque to just flip your truck right over without it and mess up your lexan body.

I must be running mine way too rich. I'm scared to death of running too lean.

I have a JetPro pipe and I'm sick of the thing wheeling. You have to gradually get on the throttle and even doing that the front wheels lift. I think the DDM pipe with bring power on more smoothly.

My Monster Beetle keeps the wheels up, even before I had the pipe.
