Mine is a SW20 MR2. Not officially a race car though, but its primary purpose is for track days. I've considered getting a hardtop SW20 and putting in the 2GR-FE V6 in to it and racing it in the Sport Touring class....

they can actually lift. they tighten the wheelie bar or anti roll bar in the case of fwd soo much that there is little weight on the rear wheels.
during the burnout the front tires grow in diameter. that can lift some more. and then the water pit can be the dip to have the tires right off the ground.

but having the wheelie bars down so far make the care very dangerous to drive since the wheelie wheel is typically plastic it doesnt hold traction very well!

I had an E34 5 speed I raced around on back roads and tracks. Not really a said race car but it was awesome. Picture is from when I was fixing all the rust

the way my r/c sits right now i have a little over $500 in it. it will do close to 60mph and it can take a hell of a beating. i have hit one of the giant orange road cones doing close to full speed and it bounced and kept going. i have the 3.3 traxxas motor in it. a quart of nitro fuel cost about $11 though :eek:

Nope, the car has a wheelie bar that helps keep the front tires planted.

Now that you mention it, they do say that with a correct set up, as the slicks grow the back tires could lift off the track.

But they were talking about that happening at the top end when the wheel speed is high and the slicks grow.

I have more burnout pictures, I'll look closer to if any of them look that way.

None of the photo's are photo chopped, for one thing, I have no idea how to do that.
