Wheelhop. I launch from about 2500 RPM and the driveline chatters for about a second. With some throttle control I've managed to avoid straigt-up wheelspin but I still can't get a solid launch. I'm going to invest in some upgraded engine/transmission mounts in a few months (gonna be out of town most of the next year in fact.) I wonder if there's anything I can do with the suspension to help the situation as I haven't done any mods there yet. I'd to take a look at possible fixes before I start buying suspension parts.

Are you still running stock suspension? Have you considered coilovers?

The two things I know of to help eliminate it are better dampers (and a lower COG) + a LSD.

I've only launched a handful of times, but with the Koni coilovers, I've not had any wheelhop issues (flat level surface).

Just my .02 cents. ;)

Any suspension and/or drivetrain experts out there can help answer this one. What tricks are there to setting up a FWD car to minimize wheelhop?
imo, if you learn to launch with minimal tirespin, you won't have to worry about wheel hop so much. throttle control...
