Default Question question about aerodynamics in handling on a Traxxas Slash

Hi hi I have a question about my traxxas slash. I did the 3s upgrade and got the 31 tooth onion gear and the 76 pins spur gearr for high-speed option and since then it always flips over it backwards before I get to full throttle. I was told that a wheely bar wouldn't help much and if there's not much I can do about it. one person said I could put weights like the ones is on model airplanes in the front of the chassis and that might prevent problems. Another person suggestions that I get a high-speed body. I tried getting a big hole in the back of the body but that didn't help. Does anybody have any suggestions.? if a new body would help what kind should I get? Would weights in the front tend to burn out the motor? If not how many weight should I use? Just trial an error?someone mentioned the wind block or wind dam or splitter in the front of the vehicle. Does anybody know where I would find something like that? Any suggestions?

The agony of defeat in the quest for speed.
