He means change the gear ratio to favor more low end torque. But doing so will sacrifice speed. If you change the gears to favor more speed, then you will lose some off the line accleration, but you will have a higher speed. Your other option it so change the first gear to favor low end torque, and the second gear for speed. The down side to this would be a really tall (slow acceleration) second gear and it would take a long time to get up to speed, but you could pull wheelies.

You need to run the engine in properly first, then start tuning. It will pull wheelies as a stock truck providing it is tuned correctly.

wll i'm alittle confused.you stated it wasn't fast enough for you then in the next sentance you say you want to add a ton of aluminum.adding all that aluminum will do nothing for speed except lower it.
as for the engine,give it a chance.the motor isn't even broken in yet.finish breaking it in and get your first gallon through it before you start judgeing it.its still really tight yet(err least it should be) and i doubt you have the tune down yet with such a new motor.once you break it all the way in and have it tuned properly then make your decision.you could always add a better air filter/pipe combo for alittle more performance.
my buddie has about a half a gallon thru his and its starting to come on now.before spending all that money on things you probably wdont need how about upgradeing tires,servo saver, and steering servo first.that will make a big difference in handleing.on thing we noticed about the savage since adding it to our stable is the handleing is way off compared to our maxxes.those mods should get you close.also have you done the diff mods yet?unless you plan on rebuilding them soon i'd spend acouple bucks and some time to fix them.[link=http://www.savage-central.com/article28.html]heres[/link] what to do.also save [link=http://www.savage-central.com/]this[/link] site to your favorites.one of the best for savages. and finaly if you really feel the need to spend some cash on it read [link=http://www.savage-central.com/article29.html]this[/link] article on strenghtening the savage.

good luck and congrates,its an awesome truck.even coming from a maxx owner.[X(]

like he said if you want more speed dont add all that weight and for weelies and low ed acceleration you want to get a larger spur gear and a smaller clutch bell and vise versa for top speed

It's sounds like a tuning problem, a box stock Savage will wheelie. I read in the HPI web site forum, someone asked a similar question. The HPI tech responded by saying something like, they could have easliy changed some weight distribution and made it wheelie every time for anyone. The truck will handle and drive much better balanced the way it is, and all 4 on the ground. I suggest you get some help tuning the engine, and don't waste to much money on after market parts.
