I was having some fun with burnouts the other day, because it's cold here in Wisconsin and my Star Specs are like ice skates on a cold road. The wheel hop feels like it's going to shake apart the entire rear end. Has anybody else experienced this? What's the best way to improve it?

Be careful, wheel hop breaks driveline parts.

I think "balloon-foot" describes the remedy Brandon! :)
I learned to drive in January when I was living in Chicago. Dad had a Buick Wildcat, so that approach to throttle application was a big priority.
best regards

I don't think it's a matter of leaning how to drive. Brakestands and burnouts are pretty trivial. My Z06 had no wheel hop, but my Miatas/Fiata have always had a large amount.

I could feel wheel hop on my previous car even without any burnouts... The alignment and wheel balancing solved that issue.
