Hmm, I would like to know what the stiffness levels you went with all around.

A member in our area drove his 08 focus in AutoX with me one day and he was having all kinds of issues as well.
The difference is that you have a tune for better controlling the traction control. Which he hated for AutoX.
But his car was also hoping. What I helped him with to get some of the hop out was adjust the stiffness of the shocks all around. we just softened the setup here and there and it helped some.

Some of the other fellow autoX'ers around us also noted that his tires could have been a factor as well for the hopping.

I guess we all here need a bit more information.
