Okay, this has been bothering me.

Is it even possible to pull wheelies in automatic RWD cars? My friend says it is, but i just don't see how it could ever work.

I dont see why not if it has enough horsepower/torque.

Yes, it is.

You need some heavy-duty traction, but I've seen some heavily-modded Camaros pullin' wheelies.

In a stock car, it's not possible.

I can't find the video but I saw a drag race between a supra and mustang and the mustang did a pretty long wheelie. Maybe a full second. it's all in the torque thumbsup

You know if you put your frt wheel drive in reverse you can also do a wheelie.

But I dont understand...would you just stomp the gas? Neutral bomb? Hold brake, floor, and let go?

Yeah. Advice would be cool.

I wouldn't say all. A great combo is the two speed power glide-manual. Then theres 350 turbo auto which is a three speed.

Poppon the front tires off the ground is actually a loss in quarter mile time if you think about it so I guess you could say that doin wheelies looks cool but is a disadvantage if you need to run faster down the track

my other, and first car, a 1985 ElCamino that me and my dad dropped a 454 bigblock into with hooker headers and MSD iginition, bored 60 over with a crane cam, i can get it almost off and it it's running just street radials and a 87 camero rear end, but thats a hella lot of power and it wants to go straight, if i was at the track though with some really sticky slicks im sure it would do better.
