Newbies - How to make a Wheelie car

#1Stu_ponkPosted 3/6/2008 2:30:57 AM

Only got this at weekend; and tips needed.

1. So which cars can be made into Wheelie cars?

2. What settings/TUNE do you use?

I've tried both my Viper and the basic Nissan 240, but in fairly low trim. Reading the Walkthroughs on here, they suggest LEVEL.3 engine power etc - is that needed? What else?

Presume you put the wheels to small (big fat tyres), low gear ratio, ... soft suspension? Low ride?

I've got no idea how you make your car look like your competitors... ie big fat back wheel, small front wheel. Long loading times, and lack of owning a wheelie car makes it too frustrating to keep entering the event just to peek at the computers car, to see what they use in manufacturer/model.

Shelby gt500(modern) is a great car for wheelies, my best score is 1146, with stage 3 parts and boost the nos in the third gear for more wheelie, and i hope if you put stage 4 parts in the car it will be better

I also have the new GT500 but with all stage 4 parts and can get to do almost the whole 1/4 mile.

Go old school, I use the Challenger with all stage 4 parts.
Stiffen the Suspension and NOS at the end of 3rd gear.

got a lvl 3 zonda, best wheelie is 1392, i have to hit nos at the beginning of 2nd gear, but that keeps me up for the rest of the race, since lvl 4 nos lasts a llllooooooonnnnngggggg time.

i recently discovered this but the aston martin db9 is amazing in wheelies
just equi it with stage three parts
soften the suspension all the way
put everything in engine except cam timing all the way to the right

put it in first gear before the light turns green

you dont even nead nitro at all my best so far is 1446 feet because i havnt found the course to back up all the wy

Ignore my settings for suspension- suspension should be soft.
Small Hint - try Chicago Airstrip for a long wheelie :)

to do easy long wheelies u need a rear wheel drive car level 3 suspension at least level 2 tires and around 450 horses. Retard ur torque put both boost gauges to max and shift on green. When the nose starts to come down (usually in 3rd or 4th gear) use nitros to keep the nose up. Go to practice to get the hang of ur particular ride. Rembember front wheel drive and 4 wheel drives cars can not wheelie. And speed does not matter in wheelie event u can run 14 seconds 1/4 miles and still win so the jump is not that important. The chevelle is a good wheelie car as its easy to control on two wheels and it will with the right mods pull over 1300 foot wheelies
