    i know this has been asked a zillion times. I cna find what to search under though. I just bought a new 44 in dixie chopper and it will ride wheelies going forward and scream the tires gong backwards. however i don't want to do this in grass.

    any help would be greatly appriciated.

    Um........slow down. Keep both tires moving in a turn and practice.

    You must counter-rotate the tires on a zero radius turn. That means that the inside tire actually has to turn in reverse. Be sure you get the machine to a stop before you do that. Be gentle with the sticks. Choppers have nice controls, you should be able to run that thing in no time.....
