    Revo 3.3 wheelie

    OK so i just got my revo 3.3 a huge difference from my 1.5 maxx with a 2.5 installed anyway my thought was that the revo would be so hard to keep from doing wheelies i wouldnt be able to get WOT from a stand still. Well this isnt the case am i doing something wrong? Is the truck to rich? i want it to wheelie down the street.

    RE: Revo 3.3 wheelie

    set the supension settings so the truck sits really high and the preloads onthe springs tight. that did it for mine. if it''s set up like a truggy it wont wheelie.

    RE: Revo 3.3 wheelie

    Actually if you have the torque and the traction it will wheelie if you have the shafts level or as you say "truggy setup"[&:]
    Real revo\'\'s are built not bought.

    RE: Revo 3.3 wheelie

    Also; if its too rich, it probably wont wheelie either; simply because it can''t gain enough power when at lower rpm''s to do some wheelies.

    RE: Revo 3.3 wheelie

    Maybe your clutch is a little too worn to get the power down. That or it could be a combination of both. An old/worn clutch will slip like that tho.

    I found it really hard to impossible to wheelie my revo 3.3 even with an .18 in it. I don''t think the revo was made to wheelie like the t-maxx.

    But I always had it set low with soft suspension, the Revo 3.3 has a long chassi, and once you put the center diff in you''ll never see wheelies.

    There\'s a right way and wrong way to do everything and the wrong way is trying to make everybody else do it the right way

    I was running a OS .18tm with a THS pipe,

    But when I think about it, the traxxas 3.3 engine blew up in the first gallon and when I bought the OS I got the FOC, about the same time, thats why I never wheelied.

    Anyone have a video of a stock revo, doing a wheelie?, I've only seen a couple, and on concrete, or 40 series tires

    (BTW, the OS has 6 gallons still runs)

    I agree with your post farther up that the revo won't wheelie as easily as the tmaxx but theres no reason with the 3.3 motor tuned right and running on a hard surface that the revo wont wheelie with the stock suspension setup. If you run a loose slipper or a center dif or even a difference in the altitude you live at then thats a different story. My son's 3.3 is going on 5 gallons and has been trouble free. I will say tho that it doesnt hold a consistent tune like the OS engines but it only requires a slight adjustment here and there.
