how much hp do i need to bring my front wheels off the ground? i am curently pushing 350 and it will bark the tires in 3rd but cant raise the wheels off the ground not wanting but about an 1in off the ground
Agreed.This is silly.
You don't need a Dana 60 or a 9" or a tub to lift the front tires an inch. Just some 8" wide 15"-16" wheels with a good drag radial on them like a Mickey Thompson ET Street or Nitto NT05R at the right pressure, and of course the right power at launch, and the suspension to keep that power going in a straight line down the track.Agreed.
It's not so much about power, it's how well it hooks and sticks...
You want to get the tires off the ground, start with a Dana or Ford 9" rear (something that'll hold together from the massive torque required) and tub the car out...then get some sticky racing slicks because nothing you'd buy off the shelf would help...
If that's what he wants, my recommendation is:Okay seriously, figure out what you want. So far for your car you want, better gas mileage, cylinder deactivation, and now you want to pull wheelies. I have a feeling that you will actually take steps to accomplish none of these. Go buy a motorcycle if you want good gas mileage and the ability to do wheelies.
