Being new to the RC community (again), I got a Traxxas Rustler VXL for Christmas. Upgrades have been coming in as I roll on, turning mostly plastic to aluminum. I kept reading that I would need a wheelie bar due to the power of the Rustler VXL. Sure enough, I definitely needed one after the 5th consecutive uncontrollable wheelie. Then comes the Traxxas Wheelie Bar Assembly. The looks of the wheelie bar itself threw me off for a bit…. after installation, all was well.
Traxxas Wheelie Bar Assembly Description
Traxxas has engineered a bolt-on wheelie bar mount for Slash, Stampede, Rustler, and Bandit that uses the unique patent-pending Traxxas adjustable wheelie bar. The wheelie bar features four positions to adjust wheel height. It quickly and easily installs onto the rear of any electric Slash, Rustler, Stampede, and Bandit and provides extra protection for the motor and transmission case. Existing wheelie bar accessories such as the aluminum wheelie bar wheels with rubber tires (part #5186) or the separate rubber tires (part #5185) are also compatible for custom looks and increased performance. Use Traxxas stock and hop-up replacement parts to get the most out of your Traxxas RTR vehicles. This product is made from high quality materials and designed for long-lasting performance. This is replacement hardware for use on Traxxas vehicles; consult your user’s manual for exact parts listings.

The wheels that come stock on the Traxxas Wheelie Bar Assembly are hard plastic. You will find that these shake and while they aid, not great. You can grab the Traxxas Rubber Tires for the wheelie bar assembly as a quick upgrade! Rims on the rubber wheels come in different colors as well to match the vehicle. Personally, I grabbed the red ones. Check them out here: http://amzn.to/2k6P2vI or below
