Got wheel hop.......?

As ya know I installed the Energy Suspension bushings for the rear cradle and the diff.. Well today I finsihed up with the spoiler delete and took the car home. Punched it from a dead stop and I have to say that the wheel hop has disappeared about 90%. What a difference.....!!!

I don't get it when I burn tires from a stand still, only when I try to light 'em up on a roll. How do they do on that?

I have the luxury of a lift at the shop, so it took 45 mins to do. On your back may be a different story.
