I installed my upper cntrl arm in the
top hole per the manual and have wheel hop.

Now I am making some holes in the rear firewall
to slip the bolts out then in.

Which hole should I try first? The middle
or the bottom?

Thanks in advance!

Does it make much of a difference which hole you use on the lower control arms?
Thanks,
Sten

AHHHH Dan stop!!!!! The bolts will go in from the other direction (once you get them out) All you gave to do is grind off one of the 6 points on the bolt head and the integral washer if it has one. Jeff is correct if you have a severe problem use the lowest hole.Non sticky tires contribute to this as well .My experience with tires and burnouts tells me if the tire is not sticky enough or is spinning too slowly you will get wheel hop. Or in NHRA terms tire shake. I have noticed that the slower cars (pro stock 6.70 slow ?!) more times than not ,the stupid fast cars 4.70 or better do not have this problem as often they just go up in smoke right off the bat.If you take it out and reaally bake the tires off it does it hop, or only at slow tire spinning speeds. I'm at 580 hp in the middle hole with 315 drags and no wheel hop (yet) Bob

I have not done a dead stop burnout yet..

I am getting significant hop going into 2nd
gear.

I just made a beautiful hole on the pass
side (no hack) and can get the bolt into the lowest hole.. Now I will try to cut the old bolt out
with a sawsall.. I just experimented with a
10.9 and a good blade will go through it ok.

Got to love those breeze seat mounts... both seats
out in 7 minutes...

Now to make up a nice cover plate..

I may try Bobs trick for the other side..

Thanks again ..

Dan
