I'm going to keep arguing because I know I'm right. Engine mounts might seem to help in situations where FWD passenger cars are concerned as the factory mounts are SO soft, but it has nothing to do with what actually causes wheel hop. When the suspension parts are stressed beyond their capability under hard acceleration and deceleration, wheel hop happens. That is 100% fact and simply adding a stiffer motor mount won't solve anything.

If you've got C5 Corvette and the rear end hops around like a bunny rabbit with its head on fire, It isn't because you've got soft motor mounts...
