This topic has been discussed to the nth degree but I truly believe the solution would be the $60.00 air bags you can put in the springs to stop the hop. Others will tell you a brace...blah, blah, blah....just to sell you a product they cannot prove 100% will cure the issue. As a matter of fact, it doesn't cure the issue. I recommend the air bags and maybe lowering the car an inch or so to get rid of the hop. Cheap and easy! :thumbsup:

The urethane IRS bushings WILL REDUCE the amount of wheel hop. Mine practically eliminated it but then again I don't drop the clutch and/or drag race. Just my two cents. Hope it helps.

I've never really experienced wheel hop because I don't drop the clutch. I ease into first and lay the hammer down after I know 3rd will grip!!

Delrin bushings are supposed to really help. I have poly bushings ... replaced everything, added braces, changed springs, etc. It was better, but I still had hop if I got on it hard. I ordered drag bags from Laurel Mountain Mustang for $60.00 + shipping on the referral from another club member. With 5-8 lbs of air it works like a charm for me. Maybe one little skip and then I am off.
