Making a stoppie on a motorcycle is well known in racing circles and is also often tried out by amateurs. The result is usually more or less good and accidents and injuries are often unavoidable. But what about the car and what is meant by a stoppie? Below is a closer look at the Stoppie and the difference to other interesting stunt figures that can be made by car.
Stoppie - what is it?
The stoppie is one of the driving techniques used in motorsport and show events. The Stoppie itself is known from motorcycle motorsport. It is carried out less often with a car. There are few videos on the Internet that show this driving technique by car. In general, a stopie is a driving technique in which, due to dynamic wheel load distribution when braking, it can be set up on the front wheels (the front wheel) is reached. For motorcycles, for example, a distinction is made between two stoppie variants.
which forms are differentiated?
A distinction is made between the standing stoppie and the rolling stoppie. A standing stopie occurs on the motorcycle when the motorcycle is stationary or stops immediately before the rear area is raised. The standing stoppie means that you stop directly on the front wheel. When rolling a motorcycle, the rider only continues on the front wheel. On YouTube is a video with a mini car showing drifts and a stoppie. The stoppie in the video is a standing stoppie.
How is a stoppie reached on a motorcycle?
In motorsport, the stoppie on a motorcycle is achieved by braking hard. Only the front wheel brake may be applied and the brakes must not be applied extremely quickly. The brake pressure must increase continuously. If the brakes are applied violently immediately, the front wheel slips or locks. A dynamic wheel load distribution must be made to reach a stop. The driver's weight is also shifted forward to further increase the effect.
What is driving on the rear axle called?
Many people are familiar with driving a multi-axle vehicle on the rear axle. This driving technique can be seen as the "opposite" of the stoppie and is known as a wheelie. When doing a wheelie on a motorcycle, the front wheel hangs in the air. This can also be done identically with a car if there is enough power available. Then there is often a so-called Wheelie bar used to keep the vehicle on the road. One of the most well-known scenes is probably that of the Dodge Charger from the finale of Fast and Furious with Dom at the wheel.
Where is the stoppie used?
In the motorsport area, various driving techniques, such as the stoppie, are used at stunt events. The driving techniques should inspire the audience and show what is possible with multi-axle vehicles. The stoppie is often used in motorcycle motorsport. It is carried out less often with a car. In tuning forums it is speculated that an auto stopie can lead to a broken axle and of course it is relatively more difficult to implement. If you are interested in the Stoppie by the car, you will find videos on YouTube. Motorcycle stoppies and other driving techniques can also be found there.
Stoppie - conclusion
A stoppie describes a driving technique in which the car "stands" or stops on the front wheels and the rear wheels (the rear wheel on the motorcycle) hanging in the air. The Stoppie by car is less well known than the Stoppie by motorcycle. A stoppie is interesting for stunt shows and must not be performed on public roads. Neither by motorcycle nor by car. The same naturally applies to the Wheely.
