I'm not conviced that the engine mount is "causing" the wheel hop issue, especially after discovering one of my tires mounted improperly. I'll have to wait until spring to find out for sure when I put the F1's back on.
I wouldn't doubt the tires having an effect on the wheel hop, but seeing a video showing just how far the stock motor mount seems to be moving with the stock rear motor mount I would also have difficulty to say that it wasn't at least contributing to the wheel hop/ axle hop.
