Also known as a, "wheelie." An acrobatic driving or riding stunt, of lifting the up the front tire(s) or wheels, while temporarily putting or shifting the weight of the vehicle onto the back ones. This pertains to skateboarding, bicycling, motor vehicles capable of sudden acceleration. motorcycles, etc. For vehicles larger than a motorcycle, it means the weight is intentionally shifted beforehand to the back half of the vehicle as to make it easy for the front to rise into the air during acceleration, especially on a tarmac's slope.
I jumped the clutch and the gear as I red-line revved up the engine, then I burned out the fat slicks in the back with a lot of noise and smoke, of which made my Nox-injected rice rocket immediately pop a wheelie, as my Pennzoil-logo car screamed down the straightaway while the front grill was pointing up in the air at a 20 degree angle for a a couple of seconds after I floored the gas with blue flames shooting out of the bellowing exhaust pipes. Given the loud cheering of the racetrack audience, I guess they loved the spectacle of my pulling that simple stunt.
