Fine tune your suspension to the type of racing you do.. there really isn't a 'definate' answer to this question but...9d1civhtch said:Now that i have the engine i want i need to turn my attention to the suspension. first up how do i get rid of the annoying ass wheel hop?
Technicall the answer is NO... You see, traction bars are designed to keep weight transfer to a minimum. Wheel hop is a 'whole different' type of problem. Wheel hop occurs when the tires.. grab-release-grab- release....an so on. What is really happening when you have wheel hop.. is the tire is actually grabbing traction..then pulling forward. The suspension (ie control arms & bushings) stretch and then rebound. What happens then is, the tire is literally 'shot' forward and then grabs again.. then the process starts all over again.HBracer said:will a good traction bar eliminate the need for new axles on a high torque application? b/c someone on here said that traction problems brake axles.
I am currently in the process of fab'n my own crossmembers and traction bars myself and for the life of me... I can't remember what measurements I made..soccaian said:deepstaged.... infinate and i are thinking about fabbing up some traction bars of our own for our 97 civics... do you know of some dimensions of commonly used traction bars (jimfab, z10) that we can use to start from?
