    I have a 2018 GT PP Auto , went to the track last night and made few passes and wheel hop was terrible 1-2,2-3...

    Changes I have made

    BMR Drag Spings front and rear
    Vertical Links TCA045
    Cradle Lockout level 2 CB065

    Car did better in stock trim and had less wheel hop ? Still running factory hard tire .

    Michelins were the issue?

    What tire did you go with?

    yep those stock tires will definitely cause the wheel hop. The suspension mods to the irs will help but I find start with a better tire first.

    If you start to encounter wheel hop or cradle deflection again as you start add more power to the car down the line. Not a bad a move to take a look at BMR's double adjustable rear toe rods, Vertical links and spherical LCA bearings.

    Yeah, Vi-King or Strange shocks out back would certainly do it!
