A bad suspension with a good motor mount still has the capacity to hop. It's a no-brainer (surprising that some of you still don't get it...)
What's surprising to me is that, after all this discussion, you still believe there is someone in this thread suggesting that a motor mount should be used to fix a wheel hop problem.

EDIT: Never mind, I looked back through the thread and found one suggestion to install one to reduce wheel hop:

I've always wondered what life would be like to be ignorant. Looks like you're having fun!
