Has anyone brought their front wheels off the ground (AWD), or is it even possible, man, the drivetrain probably wouldnt like that too much.

i've only ever seen one awd dsm do that and he is the fastest.....sean glazer. it's pretty common to see a awd dsm smoking the front tires off though. this is mostly due to the center diff being an open type diff and the crazy weight transfer that the awd's get on the launch.

I assume the axles would rather break than let you do a wheelie. :)

I bet Mr. Buschur, with his RWD Talon, looked into the clouds a couple of times off the line.

i've seen a bunch of guys come close with near stock suspensions on awd's. normally they just lifted the front really high and smoked the fronts then had to shift to second where they'd nearly bury the front bumper.
