Wheel hop is just that. The car hopping up and down slightly but quickly enough to lift weight off the wheels causing spin, then it plops back down only to bounce again. In my experience anyway.

But Wheel Hop and lifting are two different things, which are we talking about here?
Oh, ok. I thought they were the same... Then lifting is what Im talking about.

Wheel hop is when you launch, the car lifts weight off and on the shocks getting traction, losing traction, getting traction, losing traction. Thus ruining launches.

But yeah, lifting is soft suspension in the rear (usually) and perfect, hooking traction. Like dumping first at 7k and mashing it, if you get 0 WHeel spin, the car will just have no where to go but up hehe.

Easily can destroy hundreds of dollars of **** when you land.

Is there a way to prevent parts breaking when it lands down?

That I don't know, but most people just throw wheelie bars to prevent how high it goes.

I mean, its thousands of lbs slamming on the ground. I personally do not know of any measure to save it, short of preventing it altogether.
