lifting my bike back up????

i run a 59" 10r with just a couple of mods. so far i have been a 9.4 and im 208lbs. i have the bike lowered and i have it strapped in front. my question is- if i raisied my bike up in the rear and strapped it when im at the track, would it come up as bad? i ran a 9.6 last fri and the front tire stayed in the air through 1st and part of seems that with the back end higher and the front end slammed, it wouldnt come up as much. . . . right???????

in theory that sounds good cause it seems like your putting more force on the front end. however you have much more rebound when you leave by not having that lower center of gravity from the rear. i think it will wheelie worse or worse than that get a headshake when it does wheelie and comes down..

Your front tire should be up a couple of inches through first and second, if not your not launching hard enough.
