you should be able to wheelie with the stock engine....Mine is completely stock and it wheelies right on its @$$ from a standstill with the engine running at 225....

Stiffin up your shocks with some thicker shock oil.35 or 40 wt should do the trick.I read somewhere that the reason the savage doesn't wheelie is because of the suspension travel soaks up all power when you accelerate.I use 35wt in the rear and it will wheelie when it has enough traction the hyper21 likes to break the tires loose on just about all surfaces even with 40series road rage tires.......lol

wheelieing is not something that happens all the time.

Under normal circumstances, you do NOT want your moster truck to wheelie. So if you want to get it to wheelie, you will have to change the sustension setup among other things.

A thicker wt schock oil will definitely help. But, this will COMPROMISE OVERALL HANDLING. Your truck will roll over easily and it will land a lot harder.

see if you can move anything around and get more weight in the back. That should help you wheelie easier.

Do the big joe tires and big engine make the diffs blow out all the time? I just figure the drivetrain couldnt take all that torque and traction.
