Re: Team popping a wheelie to get on the bridge

There was a team in Oklahoma who did...can't recall their number off the top of my head...

Team 2410 thinks KISSing is amazing! Keep It Super Safe!

Theory is when you know everything but nothing works. Practice is when everything works but you don't know why. On our team, theory and practice comes together. Nothing works and nobody knows why.

Both 470 and 3175 here in Michigan could do it consistently. Unfortunately, neither are going to the Championship, but it was fun to watch as a scout.

Re: Team popping a wheelie to get on the bridge

We (team 422) were pulling them way back in week three . As head scout, I heard from Team 900 that they were going to attempt it, and told my driver, who decided the wouldn't beat us to it. We rode the wheelie balance train to the finals at VCU, only to lose when our alliance captain tipped, two matches in a row.

If you're actually wheelie-ing up, and not using something to prop the front up, don't forget that you have to go away from the bridge, then slam forwards to wheelie up.
A slightly higher than normal CG and torquey drivetrain helps too.

Re: Team popping a wheelie to get on the bridge

Team 1248 did a wheelie to get on the bridge. They were really successful at it
