Wheel hop issue
Hi there, I'm ViperJoe and i have a 2004 Viper. It had rear wheel hop since i bought it. i just finished building the engine to 700 to 750 hp. It still had hard wheel hop and it blew the posi differential. i replaced it with a wavi 11 from unitrax. now it blew the cv joint on drivers side from wheel hop. does anyone have any solutions to this problem?

Not sure on the Vipers but people with Challengers have had some luck with modified rear suspension and changing tire types I believe.

As Indicated in my PM to you, I do NOT own a Viper so cannot offer any words of wisdom based on said ownership. :(

I do know from previous experience with wheel hop on other vehicles (including my 2010 Ram) that it can be a real bugger to sort out, and sometimes quite costly. If you are near the end of life of your tires, I would consider starting there with a different brand/model. If you see another Viper and can ask the owner about his tires and possibly about any wheel hop concerns, that might be a great starting place on what tires to consider.

Good luck and please post all your findings in your thread (good or bad) so that other members may benefit from your experiences with this issue. :)
