Wheel hop is a condition where your tires don't quite slip and spin but the don't quite hook up either.. what happens is your tires start to spin but they catch a bit of traction.. when this happens it causes your tires to bounce.. Your tires will keep bouncing untill you either get full traction or they just start spining.. It's quite niosey and hard on the suspention..

I have really bad wheel hop, but only when I'm showing off. A few of you might have seen it at Carlisle or Maple Grove. ;-) :lol: Sometimes I get 3 or 4 inches!!
