It would seem that different size halfshafts are what really cured the wheel hop problem on the V2, the cradle pretty much looks like ours.
Can custom made halfshafts in different diameters solve the problem on the V1? Anyone know how expensive these would run? Could it work? It doesn't fix the weak diff casing but the diffs might last a lot longer if they are not subjected to the shock of wheel hop.

LOL... This has been covered quite a few times. Once by myself;

It's been covered more than just the two times.

As soon as the first info came out about the ZR1 having the different half-shafts as a preventative measure against wheel hop, it was immediately suggested by peoples for the V1. Funny thing is that, now, it actually appears to have originated in the V2 and then subsequently been applied to the ZR1. Anyways, I expect we better get used to seeing this question pop up again and again, at least, for the immediate future.

It's deja vu all over again! :D
