Any 6th Gen Nose Lifters?

Random thought in my mind.. ..although I havent been looking, I havent seen any either.. Around what power range would it take to lift up the front end of a 6th Gen from a dig?

Basically when a car has so much torque off the line that from a dig it lifts the front wheels off the pavement.

There's a much more succinct word for the phenomenon you're trying to describe:

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/wheelie

It's pretty rare for modern cars to pop a wheelie. You actually don't want to do this in drag racing -- it's considered a bad launch and you're ultimately slower off the line since the car is wasting time and power lifting itself.

just wondering what is keeping modern cars on all 4 wheels (presumably same power numbers and similar weights) over older cars?

IRS, short/stiff-sidewall tires, and lower ride heights come to mind.


All cars will experience small amounts of nose rise as the front suspension unloads under forward acceleration, but if it's daylight you want to see under the front tires, "pop a wheelie" or wheelstand" are the terms you're looking for.
