so. theoretically, one could just get a set of rear shocks to cure the hop?Mallett's use a very expensive pair of Penske shocks with valving that is prescribed specifically for the V. He assures you they work (you have to cough up 3k for the set).
Many people have had good results doing different things here, but to answer your question as it was titled, the discussions I have had with Chuck and Lance Mallett have always ended up at the shocks. Call him and order a set, and post results.so. theoretically, one could just get a set of rear shocks to cure the hop?
i just hate doin' stuff half-way.
You're not talking about the Supra, right?its just that i came from a platform that no one ever advanced anything because it was out of the box or some idea someone had like 4 yrs ago and got shot down.
if this forum is going to be stagnant especially when it comes to try different performance ideas... ill spend my time on a site that is open to people asking questions AND people who care giving advice trying to come up with a cure.
i mean, performance companies and even a damn race team has found ways to cure the rear diff/ hopping issue. is it wider sticker rear tires? shocks? various bars? being lowered? totally new suspension? better drivers?
just stop always saying search when no solution to the issue exists. i spent 1 day reading another ls forum which had a ctsv section and im reading about v's with ls7 swaps, sick builds, turbos, blowers, maggies, etc. i learned alot just from seeing how people take ideas that are from other areas and then putting it to good use to what is basically a very heavy 4dr vette.
Nothing new was asked, nothing new is being discussed. The problem with the search, is that there is tons of threads about wheelhop. People get lazy, so they start a new thread. You guys don't even support the forum and you want us to do the work for you?!!its funny how here people bitch about the diff and hop but when ever someone comes up with a question to maybe spur some debate on it, the same people say "search"
new things are learned everyday, just saying search does nothing since the cure for wheel hop isnt already documented. if it was people would have them on their cars. clear fogs get new threads. painting rims get new threads. but something as important as coming up with an idea to cure something that makes our cars weak.... hey just go search and be quiet.
if you have nothing to add, just stfu and let the thread die. the thread is already made, thus you saying to search isnt going to make the thread go away.
all i just read there was blah blah and a bit more blah.Nothing new was asked, nothing new is being discussed. The problem with the search, is that there is tons of threads about wheelhop. People get lazy, so they start a new thread. You guys don't even support the forum and you want us to do the work for you?!!
Chip in a little, then tell me to stfu.
"searching" was the first thing i tried. i would not start a new thread if i had only run into dead ends. for instance, when i was checking out the Mallet's website, it stated "NOTE: Mallett rear wheel-hop stabilizer system is not available as a stand-alone kit for catalog sale.". SO. Without knowing the owners, my next stop was this forum. I've had my V only since 4/1. I have a lot to learn. I will always try searching on my own first before starting a new thread.Or one could do a search.
