    CEN Colossus XT. Stock electronics except for radio and servo. 6S. Length measurement? No. It has destroyed a body just from wheelies. It will pop a wheelie no problem. With the wheelie bar in getting for it, it will ride wheelies for however long I feel like holding the throttle.

    Probably no point in me even posting that. This thread was probably intended for those that go full throttle from a stop and have a wheelie for a few inches. Wheelie contests aren't really that big anymore.
    Modern brushless systems+ Li-Po batteries = wheelies
    Not trying to bash the thread. Hopefulky ithers will chime in.

    not basing just trying to prove your trucks power my traxxas stampede will hold a wheely for 10 minutes at 35mph which is how long my 8.4 volt ninmh 3500mah traxxas bat will last I was just hoping to see what others could do

    I have a full size E Revo with a hobby wing brushless (not sure on Kv rating.. it was in it when I bought the Revo) on 4s with a wheelie bar. I got halfway down the street before I let off the throttle. Got a similar distance in the grass at the park.

    Nice. My Colossus XT on 3S can almost pop a wheelie, haven't tried 4S in it. But with 6S, it is wheelie crazy.

    I really need to get this rig back up and running, it's been sitting for 2 yrs now , ever since I fried the esc, and slowly parts keep vanishing off of it, it now needs motor, esc, clutch, spur, drive shafts, steering servo, steering bell crank assembly, tires, oh boy maybe it would be cheaper to buy a complete used roller chassis and go from there.

    I almost forgot! I have an RC10 Championship Edition gold pan with a Castle 3100kv and knobby 2.2 SCT tires that will run a wheelie for about 40ft if it launches in the right kind of terrain

    I doubt i'd start fresh anyway, the only parts I wouldn't have to replace , even on a fresh roller, would be the steering components and maybe the tires, the stock drive shafts can't handle brushless power, i'd still have to buy new shafts and motor combo at the very least, the tires and steering parts aren't that much compared to the esc and motor

    HPI Crawler King with Traxxas Velineon 3300kv on 2s LiPo HD Steel Trans Gears, 1/10 Nitro Diff Gears, MIP Shafts and a bunch of others stuff, no wheelie bar... The best one is at the end skip to 3:04... There were longer wheelies but I didn't catch them on video.



    She was built for FoFF.
