Question?!

Generically in mustangs at the tracks...
How much rear wheel torque and horses do you have to be running to lift your front end off the ground?? I've always wanted to do that and want to know if I'm at the specs to do so. Ya know?

I may be wrong though, but to lift it up you would need a strong rear end and other suspension mods as well as other supporting mode

Yeah.. definitely you need a light front and higher rear gears to get spinning. I don't have many track chances so I get to do red light burn and launches. Can't even push it..

If that's you're goal it would be easier selling the car and buying one already with the power.

I've actually seen bone stock 5 speed new edges lifting 1 tire, but it's all in the tire and suspension. Plus dumping the clutch at 6000 rpms lmao

So my est. 375 hp gt could probably do it. And by the time I get to a track it will be around 430 hp. Lol with new toyo's in the rear afterwards lol. Tear up the pavement.

Not exactly sure, but i've got a friend with a 69 Firebird with a built up 455 (really heavy motor) with around 500 horsepower and when he throws the slicks on the back it will lift the wheels into the air.
