    i am going to start another wheelie contest

    hey guys, i am going to start another wheelie constest sometime twards the end of the week, hopefully this one will be better, last longer and cause less problems than the last one. Anyone (dealers) willing to donate prizes please let me know thru email or pm since we will have to sort out what prizes go to what winner, depending on how many donations we get will figure on how many place winners there will be, i would like at least 3. i am still going to donate the hot wheels radar gun.

    anyways, here are some pictures of my contestant, lol. i cant give you all my secrets though until after i win

    here are some of the things i have in it:

    maybe not.... just think a car is hard to steer with front wheels in the air. Could lead to more broken parts lmao

    RE: i am going to start another wheelie contest

    lol, never thought about it that way, still 2 wheels off the ground should be better than 4 off the ground 10 feet in the air and the landing, no?

    RE: i am going to start another wheelie contest

    ok here are the rules
    1. 1/10 scale redcats only (we know the 1/8 trucks can wheelie easily)
    2. must keep the vehicle 4x4
    3. no weight to be added to the rear and no wheelie bars
    4. video of buggy/truck with body off and putting the body back on before doing the wheelie('s), this way there will be no cheating


    sound good, any suggestions? maybe if we get enough dealers to donate something we can have a 1/8th scale wheelie contest to go along with this 2, its just not fair to have them both in the same contest since the 1/8 trucks can wheelie out of the box.

    RE: i am going to start another wheelie contest

    how about video proof that the vehicle still has 4wd engaged?

    Can you guys lock the rear diff?

    RE: i am going to start another wheelie contest

    thats why i figured in the video you have to show the vehicle with the cover off, close up and putting the body back on and the wheelie without a lapse in the video. I guess you can lock the diff, silly putty in the diff or something.

    At this rate it looks like it will come down to who can do one. not who can do the best. lol
