If you guys want to wheelie some of the other models, learn to port and polish the motors. You will be amazed at the power you get. I did this to my Savage motors, Tmaxx's and others. With the savage you barely had to hit the throttle for the front end to come up!

round off the sharp edges on the sleeve and crank, add some fangs to the ports but you have to be careful, if you unbalance the crank the bearings will wear out in a couple of runs.

Dennis, you are the MAN! Someone needs to post that in the Monster Truck Forum where They incessantly Rag on us folks with "cheap Chineese knock offs".
Im gonna have to port n polish one of my VX18 engines. I think we can get Legit wheelies out of a Volcano.
I have a Motor Saver, Ported n polished HPI header, and a Redcat tuned pipe. It wants to lift the front end, but wont QUITE do it. If I added a hi-stall clutch and a 10 tooth clutch bell, it might work. If I Ported n Polished the engine, I bet it would Wheelie!
Below is a picture of my ported HPI header. Before n after.
Im excited now! Im gonna order some parts from you tonight!
