Help, problem with wheel hop !!

Postby Landoman » Mon Jan 13, 2014 7:45 pm


lately I've noticed that i have some issues with wheel hop in the beginning of a burnout or donuts. It stops after but at the beginning when i let go of the clutch i feel it. also tried this on wet floor and then it was much more serious that the complete car was vibrating and didn't want to stop till when i let go of the gas.

any ideas/thoughts what the problem of this might be so i know what to start changing?

running on stock suspension with lowering springs.

any help would be greatly appreciated !!

but it sounds like it could be either worn bushes or dampers on suspension or possibly and would think more likely diff mountings

Sounds like axle tramp dude. I solved that problem by solid mounting the diff and the subframe. Happens very rarely now, but thats because my gearbox mount is on its way out.
