you probably won't be able to POP wheelies, but I have seen some cars reach speeds that the car actualy lifts up off the ground. I have also seen 4wd cars pull the front wheels off the ground when they hit second gear, but not from a stand still.

Yeah i think the suspension is to low,stiff youll just spin the tires because no weight is ditributed toward the rear were as a monster trucks and stadium truck weight all shifts to the back when you launch from a stop giving traction to the rear wheels.

Put some soft springs in the rear raise the ride height in the back and put a crap load of traction compound on the rears also front suspension with very low weight oil and soft springs would prolly help bring weight to the back if the shock can unload easily.

if you want to pull the wheels off the ground, try this. Build a brace that will attach to the back of the car's shock tower. Something that looks like a body post that sticks straight back. Get some lead weight and hang it off the back. Just don't try to turn going fast

you got way too much time on your hands James. By the way, are you going to be doing any SC racing in the near future. I think our next big race is April 9

not this year. I'm starting to focus on the left and right turning this year. The LHS just repaved and as soon as the layout is put down, I need to get as much track time as I can get. Need to figure out a few things for myself. Somethings you just can't read, you need to experiance what does what.
