My SC had wheel hop as well which cost me a tranny at the drag strip. You can eleminate that problem with the right shocks and springs. The problem then becomes wheel spin and over-revving the engine. Choose your poison.
so just for the record Bryan,, how long did it take you to give up the drag strip habit ?? LOL
