View Full Version : 1/4 mile wheel hop

04-18-05, 02:52 PM
Took my V to the track this weekend and met my friend who has a 05 vette. I ran 16 times that night and my best was 13.9 103.27 mph. The track was moist because, well, it's Oregon. My friend ran 13.3 in his vette but was pretty consistent in the 13's.

OMG, I cannot believe the wheel hop on the passenger rear. It sounded and felt so bad! I couldn't launch anything from 2500 or higher. Every shift up to forth was hopping. I couldn't even warm the tires because of it. We switched cars and the vette just sticks. I imagine that once that is eliminated I could pull 13.0 on a dry track.

1st mod is the KARS kit, unless I find a cheaper better option.

What times have ya'll gotten?
