Default Volcano Tsunami Wheely Contest

Ehroof had a good idea that we have a Wheely contest. I am gonna take it a step farther and will award the winning prize, the contest will start Sept 1 and run through to the end of Sept. Hopefully Clermont will make this a sticky. Videos will be posted on the RCU Redcat forum in this thread at the end of Sept Clermont and I will decide who has the best and longest wheelies.

The Idea and What it Will Take to WIN
The idea is to hop up your Volcano or Tsunami to the point that it can ride a wheely.

What Will it Take to Win
The longest and best wheely with out using a wheely bar will win.


Rules and Regulations:

1.) All Volcano or Tsunami vehicles MUST be 4 wheel drive and must have all 4 axles and center axles installed. You must submit proof on the video, that you have all drive shafts installed and working.

2.) No weight reduction by removing front end parts. Equally no adding weight to the rear. You must prove that there is neither one of these being done by showing it in the video before you run the car.

3.) All vehicles must be running in the videos the body ON.

4.) There are no limitations to what you can do with the engine, gearing, exhaust system, radio system or the fuel system.

5.) All videos must be viewable and somewhat clear.

6.) When posting your video make a list with links of the parts you used and what you did to make your car do a wheely.

Non-Eligible Entries

1.) Dealers are not allow to participate as eligible entries, but may post videos of there wheelies.

2.) Any entries whe think or suspect of cheating will be disqualified.

I think that's about it to keep it fair. Start making your videos this weekend and seeing what it might take to get your Volcanos and Tsunamis riding wheelies.

How about the suspension? I'm gonna guess that it has to be standard issue Redcat suspension right?
