I've been watching videos of snorkled quads going through deep water. Why do most seem to ride wheelies ?
Is it just for fun or does the front end float up on ya?
Or is it a technique to clear underwater hazzards?

:dunno:

little of both... most the time the front end will float up on its own. But I think that most do it b/c it just looks cool.... :rockn:

haha yeah it looks cool :)

Brute front ends float up pretty quick with any forward movement.
if you don't have snorks doing a wheelie thru deeper stuff keeps the air intake up out of the water.

Its simple physics. Naturally the front end wants to come up due to acceleration. Now add another force,(water) pushing on the front surface of the ATV and you get even more lift.
Once the water gets underneath and has alot more surface area to push on, it comes up even more..

But the real reason its done, is that it requires ALOT less power to move the ATV through the water, as 1/4 or 1/2 of the ATV is out of the water.
Along with the other posted reasons. Mainly to keep water out of the airbox.

That and its fun!

No I haven't. I dont have anywhere that deep & I'm not sure I could without drowning it. I really, really don't want to tear anything up.

And I don't have a Brute anymore...
