Hop do I lessen wheel hop? When its wet out or icy like last nite my car gets incredible wheel hop when accelerating in first through third gear. I tried easing up on the gas pedal but it still is there. On dry pavement it smokes the tires. I have my an intake and exhaust on my car.

i understand that, but the engine doesn't hop. It is just the wheels trying to get a grip on the road which has absolutely nothing to do with the engine. I'm guessing whoever told that guy that its called engine hop must've been smoking too much crack that day.

Ya i have hop with the stock michelin a/s on the car, scares me to even spin the tires since wheel hop is so bad on suspension components.

And I know this is a newb question but what is etd?
