Why no wheelies? (Jato)
So I purchased a NIB (believe it or not) Jato 2.5 and got her all broke in properly according to the manual. I have been driving it a bit and for some reason the thing doesn't pop a single wheelie. Now I know wheelies aren't everything and in all actuallity, I don't like them because of a lack of control. HOWEVER, I figure that the truck being unable to pop wheelies means there's quite a bit more power in it. I checked the slipper clutch and it's tight. I believe the truck is running pretty well as it seems to be quite quick. What else should I check? Thanks.

Stiffen the rear end, first try moving the pre-loads all the way down, you could also try stiffer rear springs and the anti-roll bar. You are using the rear mount battery right? Try and find some where you get alot of grip on the rear wheels when you gun it.

That and make sure your tuned right.

you cold also tighten you springs for a beter chance of a wheelies.
you cold also put a ramp were ever you race it and it should hold.

is your engine tuned right? you might me a little rich. If its rick there is more fuel in the engine and it cant rev as fast. only lean out 1 hr at a time and look for smoke from exhause. no smoke is bad and to lean.
