Went to the track and everything was fine until the last run. First few runs were great, burned out was fine even launched and no hop. My last run had some wheel hop and broke and axle. Then I upgraded them to the mfactory sport axles.

Fast forward to this week, noticed some wheel hop at almost every run. I'm not sure if it's just me hesitating or something might be loose/broken/worn after snapping my axles.

Current mods are kw v1, white line subframe inserts and a custom diff lockdown from 1addicts.

crazy, you still feel it after replacing the axles? id lift the car up and take a flashlight and look at your bushings, sway bars, suspension all of it, maybe even inspecting the diff as well. Usually when you mess up something on the track you wont always just destroy one thing.. but a chain of things connected lol. Id def stop driving it until you lift it up.

wheel hop is usually caused by the shock not having enough control or strength to control the suspension

Id be looking into better adjustable shocks than v1.

Even when brand new, when you turn up the power you need better shocks valved to suit

Koni yellows would sort that out on close to stock springs as you can adjust them
