Quote, originally posted by sikvibe Â»I went to the local drag way this weekend and experienced massive wheel hop whenever I tried to get a decent launch..My best times were only when i took off slowly at low rpm, getting into the low 16's. I was thinking about raising the rear end with spacers or even putting the smaller overall diameter, larger sidewall stock front tires back on..anyone else experience this..any ideas??Hey, I mentioned this on one of your other threads: ES motormount insterts helped tremendously. Your car is already lowered , so besides the sway bars and such, these inserts keep your engine from throwing weight around, and stop the rockin' and a rollin'. Of course, a limited slip differential would keep you from being a peg leg, but that is kinda pricey.Bring a portalble cigarette lighter compressor with you to the track, and let a lot of air out of your front tires, fill them up before you go back home. Get your 60 ft times down, that will be the key for you getting into the 15's.
