|RC TRUCK WHEELIE ACTION FOR BEGINNERS!||Published: 12/09/09|

I can’t wait until this weekend, taking my HPI RC Wheelie King Monster Truck out to our annual wheelie bash. Every year, a group of us wheelie fanatics get to together and do our thing for bragging rights. For those that don’t know what doing a wheelie is or have never tried it, here is my take. Performing a wheelie is when the front tires of your RC car, truck, or other wheeled vehicle come up off the ground and the RC is driving on only its back wheels! Most RC truck enthusiast love to pop a wheelie and brag about their skills. I am no exception, although I must admit, I am only average and get my clock cleaned most of the time. Don’t let that stop you, even beginners can do wheelies and with practice and the right RC truck you can learn do a long stint of driving on two wheels. Just remember during practicing that doing wheelies without losing control or flipping over takes the right combination of vehicle, torque, traction, and driving skill.
Find yourself a smooth dry surface such as asphalt or concrete to get the traction your RC truck will need. Make sure it’s not slick with oil or loose dirt for better traction or you will spin out of control. If you have a RC monster truck or truggy you can do wheelies in grass or dirt, but I prefer a smooth surface. Now, give your RC truck a short burst of throttle in reverse and immediately follow that with full throttle forward. This will allows the front wheels to come off the ground due to the slight reverse momentum accompanied by the power and acceleration of the rear tires. Simple but effective, so try it and pop some wheelies for great competition and loads of fun!
