Wheelie
 
Hey Guys, anybody know of how to make a notch stand up or if it can truly be done? I havent seen a street car carry the front tires? I seen twisting and such...but a good foot or two off the ground? I was thinking incorrect pinion angle and four link set up should do it.....but? Any thoughts.....I have Eibach drag launch springs and lakewood struts on one of my cars and it feels like car is lifting...got lots of weight transfer but thats not what I'm talkin bout....lol..... oh yeah 5 speed car.....thanks

cause its the coolest f*cking thing in the world....



but yeah, you lose precious time off your e/t when you do it at the track...and its hella dangerous to do on the streets

and yeah, lots of torque should get you there...some 4:56s

Thats right cuz its the coolest F-ing thing in the world...not at the track....thats a given...I'm talkin bot a street set-up that can actually do it? Torque and Horsepower granted...but can it "really" be done....carry the wheels across an intersection.....

the best one i saw was a 69 Chevelle...puttin out a solid 620 to the wheels N/A...it had them a solid 8-10 inhces off the ground, and carried it for a good 300 feet. it was amazing..

i've seen a few others lift them 4-6 inches and carry it...

right...you want to do this on public roads through an intersection, i see in your future a post saying "so i just got my license suspended", do that sh!t somewhere else, not on a public road. Your the type of guy who drives his new car over a median and into stopped traffic lol. Anyone else see that video?

If you want to do that kinda stuff, find a different place to do it, because your bound to have the cops called on you if done on the street.

Gonna need some sticky tires too. U cant do wheelies spinning...

Tons of torque and some relatively steep gears

Lighten up the front end with tubular K, aluminum goodies, battery relocate, etc.



If you ever do, make sure u dont cut the wheels coming back down...People ruin nice cars because they come back down and put it into a wall.
