Went to the track tonight i ran 8.3 85mph 1.8 60 ft. I though it was pretty good besides bad wheel hop. Anyway to keep this tech related whats a good set of mods to get rid of the wheel hop. Oh and this was on all motor no spray.

+1 and if those springs gave you any kind of drop I would suggest relocation brackets for the LCA's. Shocks may help also.

Yeah, my car used to wheel hop real bad. Any good lower control arms and relocation brackets will go a REAL long way to reducing wheelhop. I have BMR lower arms/brackets, BMR springs, BMR panhard bar, and Bilstein shocks/struts (which really aren't the best for drag racing), and have zero wheel hop now. I cut 1.8s on street tires with 4.10s, so something back there works.

+1 on all that, I got everything except the Upper control arms, they are a bitch to install and I don't really need them. I don't hit the track a ton but I can tell you when I burn into 2nd and 3rd gear, the rear end is smooth.
We only have one upper control arm:yes

BTW: BMR FTW

+1 to control arms. Rubber CAs cause the flex that induces it on a grippy tire! That's what destroyed the bearings in my rear end...and my driveshaft, costing some relatively expensive repairs; luckily I would've done the driveshaft eventually, so I got a couple mods out of it. Now for the bearings this weekend :(

If you do not want to replace the mount than I suggest you either go with the Steeda or buy the stepped washer from Steeda otherwise it's highly probable that you'll run into an issue with 'clunking' from the UCA. The hole is 17mm and the bolt is 14mm so you've got a lot of slack. The stepped washer is going to take that slack up so it's a tight fit.

Those are awesome times. I had good luck with Steeda LCA and BMR UCA. Both are non-adjustable, but I don't plan on lowering my car.
