Just go down a few teeth on the clutch bell. That will give you more torque. I still cant guarantee wheelies though. The video i watched with the mammoth in it looks pretty fast. Im tempted to buy one.

there still isnt different gearing yet for the mammoth best thing u can do is run smaller wheels I am using stock size tmaxx savage tires . u might hav to get the conversion to 14mm setup but I changed mine and must say has more bottom end and a lower cg compared to the stockers and am very happy . also take a look at the clutch xtm has updated there clutch setup too the old 1 will burn out after breakin

How is there not different gearing? What style, and size clutch bell is on this truck from the factory? Is it 8th scale, and the bell is already as small as they come?

the truck is fairly new still the mammoth uses a bell where the gears are actualy screwed onto the bell if u go to the globalhobby forums where all the mammoth talk is u will find out they are still maken new gear sets for the mam. yes it is 1/8 scale
