The wheelie bars on the FWD cars are used for an entirely different purpose, not to prevent wheelstands.
When the car stages, the wheelie bars, which are hydraulic or air operated, are activated and push down on the track, lifting the rear wheels off the ground. This puts all the weight on the front drive wheels. After the car launches, the bars gradually let the rear wheels back down.
Kinda goofy, but it works pretty well. American inginuity......it's a wonderful thing. Some of these cars I believe have cracked the 6 second barrier and are over 200 mph, so they do go.

You're right Chevelle, the imports can't do that. But, if you're into racing, you know a wheelstand like that will probably lose you the race. They are good for the photographers only.
In all honesty, I don't care for the imports much. I never thought a car smoking the front tires was very cool. But, some of them are VERY fast, and have to be given credit.
Ironically, over the years, I have had my share of small blocks, modified 6 cyls., a Plymouth ramcharger, a Fairlane GT, and a few others. What do I drive today? A Dodge SRT-4. Why? Economics. It was reasonable priced, had a good warranty, gets great mileage, and has all the performance most anyone on the street would want. And it AIN'T an import. It's just fun to drive.
