Motorcycle and Cars: Wheelies, the physics behind them.

Yes, but many sports cars now a days are designed to have such a low center of gravity. Obviously if the center of gravity were as low as the contact patch the car could never wheelie, (unless it came upon a bump or hill) So the center of gravity seems to play an undeniably large role to me. More so than the wheel base.
Sure. But like I said before, the wheel base will determine the COG in most cases. Or at least play a significant part. Both you and the guys on the other forum are correct depending on how you look at the problem.
