Any ideas how to get wheel hops out of a vehicle I have been trying for two years. I have tried everything from shocks, springs, to balancing the tires...nothing seems to work. Any suggestions? thanks John

Is the track extremely rough? If it is, just use stiffer shocks if possible. What types of shocks are you using?

The track is fairly smoothe most of the time...and as of right now I'm not sure of the pinion angle, all I know its pointed just below the transmission. thanks John

How heavy/old are your rear leaf springs?
