This is an optional wheely bar set from HPI. Make your Savage perform awesome wheelies with the exciting new Savage Wheelie Bar from HPI Racing. The Savage Wheelie Bar opens a whole new world of Savage stunts - a new challenge to control your Savage on two wheels.
The Wheelie Bar provides allows you to ride perfect wheelies for as long as you want, and prevents the Savage from flipping over during full throttle blasts.
Dual ball bearings make it efficient and high quality molded nylon construction makes it durable. The Wheelie Bar is built to official HPI factory specifications for a perfect fit on any Savage truck. 2 different size wheels are included so you can achieve BIG wheelies and even BIGGER wheelies!
All of the necessary mounting is included, along with detailed installation instructions. This is a quick and easy hop-up that will add a new dimension of excitement and fun to the popular line of Savage trucks.
I've got almost two gallons on mine and it's running like a champ. Takes a little practice, but now I can ride wheelies as far as I want...and am even learning how to turn while riding a wheelie. I have a high bar with respect to durability...and this has held up fine. I am going to change the wheel and bearings, but that is general maintenance. The only downside is it makes getting the roto-start shaft into the engines gear box a little more tricky. Riding wheelies is one of the coolest things about the Savage...this is WELL worth the investment.
