Default Whats needed to wheelie???

A friend and I were talking today, and the question came up. what would it take to pull a wheelie in a 2V? So just wanted to post it up and see what everyone thought it would take. . . Thanks.

1000 or so pounds in the trunk should do it.

I think it has to do a lot more with suspension than power. You do need power, but not a ridiculous amount. Unless of course you mean like wheel stands.

power isnt the key, id say 350 rwhp would do it if you have the right suspension, built rear and slicks

HP??? PPPpppfffffffffffttttttttttttttttt! Try Torque. 400-500rwtq a loose suspension and a very high stall converter would do it.

Ask JayC. His car launches beautifully! It's gonna take big suspension work to get the car on the back tires, and it's gonna take even more drivetrain work, to get it to stay in one piece.
