    don't have too much in the way of power add ons, but have had a set of d and d tubular control arms installed, along with a set of frpp 4.10's put in. also had the trac loc specially built by Devon at performance solutions. that grabs like a bat out of hell!!! Performance solutions, i must say has been just an awesome shop to me. i have been very happy with thier work. Dan and Devon run a kick ass shop.

    allmost forgot to add my 28 spline mosier axles, and the nitto 555 dr's.

    MM SFC's
    MM LCA's
    Stock UCA's (for now)
    MM Pan Hard Bar
    MM Super Race springs
    D-Specs
    GT Brakes so the 15X10's fit
    325/15 MT DR's
    31 Spline mosers
    4:10's
    FRPP Cobra Diff with carbon fiber clutches

    What did I forget?

    Just pulled the MM Heavy duty torque arm off. Would not recomend that unless you are road racing.

    With all this I still get wheel hop.

    Hopefully that will be taken care of with adjustable UCA's.
    Now I am pulling low 1.7 60's. Hopefully that will drop to 1.6-1.5 once I get the new UCA's and get it tweaked.
    I would be happy with 1.5's with DR's.

    You hear this Jeff? I think a solid is good but I bet if you use regular ET Streets it would be gone. It is on my car.

    That being said, I might get the parts together to install a solid this winter. lol

    Curious why you think going to ET streets would stop wheel hop. I don't think the rubber compound is that much different between the two.

    What kind of 60's are you pulling with the ET streets?

    I think your combo of springs and stock UCA's are causing your wheel hop. Here's mine:
    Superior 31 spline axles
    Ford 31 spline track-lock
    3.73 gears
    mac diff girdle
    Pro3I LCA's with weight jackers
    FRPP UCA's
    Roush rear springs
    I get no hop!

    Nothing to think about it. I tried both last weekend and I get hop on the DR tires. I used 275/40/17 DRs and got all sorts of hop as my car just plain makes too much power and has an on-off type clutch so it plain wont hook.

    The last two runs with my buddies 26/11.50/17 regular ET Streets plain hooked and I got ZERO hop.

    The DR in 17" don't have enough flex to harness the power, IMO.

    I regularly see mid 1.6 shorts on ET Streets.

    I don't think sidewall flex is my problem -I am running 325\15\50's which are a 28 in. tall tire with a 13 in. sidewall.
