    I have awful wheel hop at the drag strip and I have all basically solid mounts, traction bar, upper strut bar, coilovers adjusted to stiff, and 235/40/17 federal rs-rr and I wheel hop unbelievably. Does anyone know how to get rid of it?!?!?

    What is the rest of your setup? How much power is the car making?
    From what I can see, the rs-rr is an all season, road race type tire?? Not to mention you are running a low profile.
    You can try to drop the pressure but likely better off with a slick or drag radial on a smaller wheel.

    Oh and how do I drop the tire pressure without sitting off the tpms because then i can’t disable traction control because of low tire pressure

    Traction balls might help. I am at the 220-230 whp range with a few mounts and Michelin PSS and still have wheel hop even when the tires are warmed up.

    :hyper:gee wheel hop at only 220hp, my srt-4 is making 275hp at the wheel it doesn't work at 1st gear
    I can't get going till 2nd gear and 20 mph. Ya that stupid tpms really suks that ca came up with making it a pain in the *** to switch rims is another thing I don't like either. Perhaps try 2nd gear at take off.
