June 22, 2004Iwas watching the drags on TV and saw this Honda front wheel drive with 8ft wheelie bars on the back,I laughed so hard I almost fell vout of my chair.The only way you can do a wheelie in a front wheel drive car is in reverse,and then you'd need them in the front!
June 23, 2004I KNOW THAT IT LOOKS STUPID AS CAN BE, BUT IT IS FUNCTIONAL. THE REASON THEY RUN WHEELIE BARS ON FRONT WHEEL DRIVE CARS IS NOT BECAUSE THAY THINK THAT WILL BE PULLING WHEELIES, BUT THAT THEY FUNCTION MORE AS TRACSION BARS. WHEN THEY LAUNCH OFF THE LINE THERE IS STILL ALOT OF WEIGHT TRANSFER TO THE REAR OF THE CAR. BUT WITH THE TRACSION BARS (WHEELIE BARS) IT HELPS TO PUSH THE FRONT END BACK DOWN FOR THE EXTRA NEDED TRACSION.
I MUST ADMIT THAT THE FIRST TIME THAT I SEEN THIS I THOUGHT THE SAME THING, BUT SOME THOUGHT I FIGURED IT OUT.
P.S. SORRY ABOUT ALL THE CAPITAL LETTERS. I DID NOT REALIZE THAT THE CAPS LOCK WAS ON UNTIL AFTER I TYPED THIS.
