    Well with a shortened race event with the rain on Friday I didn't get anymore time to try and tame my beast.Was doing 4 foot wheelies on Thursday so I made what I thought was a good adjustment. Brought it down to 2 foot.so Saturday on my qualifying run I tightened my rear shocks 3 click tighter.came out higher and tripped the beams with the back tires.shifted 2nd gear in the air.Made the ss16 so I left it alone.Well 4 rounds later and wheeling for the crowd,we win SS16!! If anyone has videos please share! Thanks

    I have pictures but I have not had a chance to look at them on the computer to see how they turned out. I will post some when I get a chance. They were definitely some awesome wheelies!

    Yes I did had a good grip on the dial in all day,and night. Lol. I had the wheelies comed down on Thursday so I thought. But I listened to the internet and tried some other adjustments on Saturday morning. We only got one qualifying pass and I was very surprised when I let go of the transbrake and it went up farther!! Wife wouldn't let me change anything before 1st round so I just rode them out. Lol. So much for the keyboard experts.

    I just wanted to see you do even bigger wheelies, LOL - it´s funny that your car acted different than mine with the harder rear suspension setup, because if I have the track for it, hard rear shocks gain me some on the 60ft and kind of straighten the car out - maybe because I run a 4 link?
