    The Front left is pulled up by engine rotation. The right rear will lift due to the pinion gear trying to climb the ring gear.
    Theres a certain horse power level on most rear wheel drive cars where the lifting of the front left of the vehicle tranfers enough weight to cancel out the effect of right rear wheel trying to lift. With a hard leaving car this cross over point is in the 400-500 horse power range. On a drag specific car, like a bracket with the front rising very quick it can be much lower.
