    Lol, sounds a lot like my car but twice the power mod. I hate it when I see guys telling other guys they better get their suspension dialed in before adding FI. All I have on mine is the BMR cradle lockout as well. Awesome car you have there for sure.

    maybe a ignorant question, but would "proper" suspension mods prevented the wheelie? or maybe not gone up as high? shocks springs and what not? or is there really no way to tell. Ive seen cars do this with all the suspension mods (like lunds blue car) but wondering if the suspension stuff helps prevent this.

    :clap::rockon:

    Thanks about mentioning the valve timing I had forgotten about that, so yes there are more variables to this than what I mentioned before making it harder to find an answer.
    I wonder if 1 full point in compression was "gained", "masked" in a way these things can tolerate octane/ NA or boost wise because of the use of the D.I. now? What I mean is if we are not really boosting 11:1 again because of the D.I. system is taking care of the rest, that small area so much better.
    Being able to run 12:1 and 87 octane N/A is already nuts and mind blowing and if we told that to someone 20-30 years ago they woulda call us crazy or woulda laughed of us.

    As engine compression numbers are on the rise and fuels are also getting better and more oxygenated especially for racing, it will require all of us to dig much deeper to find our answers as the subject is extremelly complex and again so many variables come to the equation than I showed before.

    9.5:1 Aluminators are probably going to be discontinued sooner rather than later by ford racing. :cwl:

    The car had never wheelied before so it was completely unexpected. Sure if we had coilovers on the front and locked them with limiters then the car would've stayed on the ground.
    You can also strap the front factory coilovers down with a rachet strap. Most of the car doing a wheelie this big is from the initial inertia shock. We were just about to go make another pass and strapped the front end down but then saw the motor mount was broken in half lol.

    A lot of those suspension mods work really well if you're on a street tire. Once you switch over to radials though stock suspension is where its at!

    Didn’t realize your suspension setup was so simple....goes to saying “less is more” can play out in a positive way. You have one hellva setup!

    Oh c’mon now, putting it on the bumper is nothing... a real man keeps pedal to the metal and backflips onto the roof for ultimate completion! :devil:

    ——







    All sarcasm aside - that’s a killer S550 wheelie, you now need a bigger and better wheelie bar to keep nose up and run full length of the track! :like:
