Default OK, New Wheelie contest

Ok guys, i want to start a new wheelie contest, ALL and ONLY redcats included. 1/10, 1/8 and 1/16. Just submit a video and i will ask the moderators to put a poll on it. We can have it end on Dec. 20, 2007. if it goes good, maybe we can get another one going. Like last time i will be donating a radar gun, picture below. If any dealers would like to donate something, pm me please, dont post anything here.

thanks and give me some of your input.

Yah comon I want to see a redcat do a wheelie even if you cant enter ehroof you need to show everyone how its done. Or at least show me it can do one. I have never even seen 1 redcat wheelie. I can get my sons to wheelie off of a jump but thats it. Lets see that big bad avalanche. If I could fit my 3.3 in the tsunami I would.

Im all over this. After today, even the tiny bit ive touched the throttle on the avalanche i know it can do some mad wheelies with some tweaking. Im going to do whatever it takes to get that thing to wheelie! Im going to finish the break in early tomorrow then start practicing!

btw, is it against the rules to have some sort of wheelie bar?

wheelie bar is cool, i actually need to get one since it does "violent" wheelies, it actually flips over on the top of the body, and i dont want to ruin the body.

Nothing wrong with a wheelie bar. Just helps prevent flip over. The avalanche looks mean and I know it should have the power to wheelie easily but I dont know how much it weighs adn how its geared. I just want to see it.

its geared low, has a 10 tooth clutch bell, its heavy but its huge and has massive tires on it, but the torque of the sh.28 and the gearing is perfectly matched for the truck, its just a monster.

Thats something I miss with the truggy. Wheelies and just getting crazy. I need to save up for a avalanche for messin around while Im not racing the truggy. I really like the way it looks alot more over pretty much everything else out other than the cen trucks.

its got a great stance too, its wide so it handles real well, i have to take a picture with the monsoon and show you the comparison, i highly reccomend it, lol, i know i keep saying the same thing but i really like it.

Is the stance because of the extended hexes? Can you put those hexes on the monsoon? That would be great!
