Default 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.

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.

Actually if you have the torque and the traction it will wheelie if you have the shafts level or as you say "truggy setup"[&:]

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.

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.

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)

OS engines rule, very reliable engines!

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.
