I'm on factory mounts...

you must make more power than me if you need them.


Only low hp cars get wheel hop on stock mounts. As soon as the blower went on my wheel hop went away and turned into wheel smoke. I actually dont think I've wheel hopped the car at all since putting the blower on, of course now at any point in first gear if the petal get matted the wheels spin on star specs and on blizzaks.

launching at 4500 i still get wheel hop... it also deals with how the track is prepped.

It has nothing to do with power, it has everything to do with the amount of traction you are getting.

Its driveline/suspension that is the cause of wheel hop, nothing else. Other factors play into the circumstance in which it will happen but ultimately its the car that the main reason.
