Not every one has had wheel hop with the 2011. Once start adding power it will come though. LCA's and the relocation brackets help you bite at the track. They are really easy to do also. Like and hour worth of work. Simply cause have to take off the rear wheels.


If you use spherical ends the cons will be stuffer over bumps and more noises generated from road etc.

Re: Getting the car to hook and stop wheel hop

i had some wicked wheel hop in my 12'. One thing i noticed that helped for some reason.
Do a burnout with your traction control all the way turned off (hold button for 5 seconds foot on break) then after turn your traction control back on then one click off for 40% on launch. launchin with the traction control on 40% seemed to stop the wheel hop for now.

A guy named nitrous pete a tuner and mustang specialist near me told me pushing the traction control button once doesn't turn the t/c all the way off. Leaves it about 40% on. Holding it down with the brake held for 5 seconds apparently turns it 100% off.

That's not entirely true. Pushing it once turns off TRACTION CONTROL, the full stop/foot on brake/hold for 5 sec method disables that as well as STABILITY CONTROL.
