    Anyone out there racing a hellcat with enough power to lift a wheel off the ground? If so are there any videos?

    Top Cat if anyone will know it will be you.

    Not on a drag radial. Have to start using some real race slicks for wheelies.

    I haven't seen any videos, but I've been told on several of my runs I got air by several people :cool:

    I do not have slicks :D

    We run drag radials vs bias slicks, so the tire technology is different and getting air actually hurts us, need to understand weight transfer for each set up, we will be testing new shocks when they arrive in the next 4-6 weeks.

    Lifting your wheels in the air is never about the ET or slip that you get....It's just for show.

    I am mostly just curious to see which side lifts on these cars (Drivers or Passengers side)

    Front end lift. Maybe I can get some air when I mount my front Racestar rims.
