I think it looks ready to pounce. I am curious, are the wheelie bars that long for looks or for function?

Looks cool! Digging the Slicks! But that is a good question about the wheelie bars!

The wheelie bars are a very important aspect of a slot drag car. On a typical 1/4 mile they will be touching the track for the majority of the run. Typically they are set up about a business card thickness from touching the track. With out them the car will de slot almost immediately upon launching. A few years ago we tried a class to replicate a 10.5 format without using the wheelie bars. while through creative gearing and motor setup you could get them down the track, ultimately the risk of ruining bodies (both yours and your opponents) was not worth it. Wheelie bar length is an important aspect as well.

A general rule with wheelie bars is five inches long max and position the wheelie wheels either inside or outside the track of your slicks. I run mine inside on my Blue Max funny car.

If you guys ain't ever seen these lil monsters run, your in for a TREAT!!! Yep those wheelie bars DO work! If you watch closely when they launch, the actually do keep the front tires on the track, Good thing they DON'T hafta steer these lil rascals!. just like the real guys, things get pretty frantic at launch!!!:);):blink:
