951 wheel hop

I noticed today when you pull out quickly and the boost comes on the tires begin to spin a little and the wheels begin to hop. Is this a normal scenario that can be cured with better shocks? I know from experience that wheel hop leads to broken drive train parts. No, I dont plan on driving like this all the time I was mainly testing the clutch for chatter or slippage before I tear it down.

sounds like shocks to me,

worn or weak shocks means that the wheels dont keep good contact with ground, also wileffect handling and braking

Back when I was in school, I learned that Issac Newton said that for every action there is an opposite reaction. Since then wheels are spinning, not getting traction, & the car not moving forward at the same perifial speed ofthe wheels, the reaction to the wheels torque is the hubs & control arms kind of winding around compressing the bushings. The stiffer the torsion bars, the more this can be felt. Harder bushings along with better shocks will help.

Better shocks are in the plans, the current ones are just your basic cheap Les-Schwab type. The front struts are adjustable Koni's so I will probably do something similar on the rear.
