Ran a few packs today with my daughter. She was kind of enough to take some pics. Sorry poor quality. No shredded tires for about 6 packs now.(y) Broke the same front bumper brace where I did before. Sorry no other carnage. The pics prove I tried.

Not one picture of all 4 tires on the ground, looks like you also have a trigger finger of death!!😆 Got the punch turned all the way up on that sucker? No wonder you shredded all those tires!!!🤣
 
That front bumper brace sucks it breaks if you look at it wrong.
Sure does. Might replace it with a 2x4 to help keep the front end planted.

Nope, left the punch setting at 3 from factory. This is why I'm not allowed to send it or be near ramps. I don't want to bring my truck home in a box of pieces. All 4 tires were planted when I switched out batteries, although she failed to get pics of that. No tires were harmed while filming .

Mine does not wheelie as much, even on pavement. I wonder if my slipper is on the light side...

Saw a dude tape like half his toolbox (like wrenches, spare motors, batteries, anything he had that was heavy) to the front bumper of his rig to try & keep the front end down!🤣

I check over everything on my truck after every few packs, both diffs still smooth as butter. I run 50k front and 30k rear but that won't effect wheelies at all. Are you running 2s or 3s.? Maybe try tightening slipper just a LITTLE. I'm afraid to run on pavement. Thanks again for the bumper mod but I won't allow shoe goo back into my life.

We run 3S, It might just be the stock tires. After a buddy changed over to 12mm hex and some Duratrax tires he gets an occasional wheelie now. He is the one who turned the stock tires into racing slicks after 1.5 batteries.

It is pretty intense to watch them roll, I think 12 rollovers is our current max.

Shoe goo and Lexan is my favorite tool now, it's also the main reason we rarely buy new bodies. I will get a pic up of my Senton body if you are curious.


These are the tires we went with (need to buy 12mm Hexes as well). So far they have been great

I'm not convinced the tires play a role in wheelies on this truck unless your running slicks. I have also run my proline trencher tires requiring 12mm hexes and wheelie action seems similar. I've used shoe goo for years on my 5th scale bodies but at 38.00 a shell I don't bother. Gorrila tape only.
Yeah, those tires look like a great deal for 40.00 on all fours! Go for it!

How do the trenchers hold out? I murdered my stock tires the moment the ground dried!

Lol. I know the feeling. After proper trimming over a period of time, I think I've conquered my problem. Haven't run the trenchers much but that's all I ran on my 5th scale track. Loved them!
