what causes crazy wheel hop

Recommended Posts

My 00 boxster S standard has teribble wheel banging and hop if I try to peal out front wheels straight ahead. Is this due to wear or looseness of cross members or by design

I guess I could just not do it

Broken engine mount will cause that too, usually the front one breaks from doing hard launches, buy a Cayman one or Pedros garage has a decent one.

Correct as well as a broken transmission mount.

These cars are not drag racers - there is proper way to "launch" a Porsche that is much faster than dumping the clutch.

Thanks I have a new engine mount but original trans mounts I have seen cars where the tires will smoke like a bmw m5.

So I should rev it high as i let out the clutch slowly as to not spin the tires

The fastest start (Launch control) is about traction not wheel slippage.

The best technique (IMHO) is a bit learned and growing familiar with what your car can do. Watch some good autocross drivers -- they can do a really fast start with little or no wheel spin - and their times will be faster than others that spin their wheels.

Unfortunately Pedro is no longer selling his mount as buyers were not returning the cores.
