Yup, basically a mix of poor traction and poor suspension geometries, it makes the wheels hop around very rapidly and if you've never experienced it, you will probably crap your pants thinking your car is falling apart or exploding or something... That's what happened to me anyways lol

I think dragon graphics on sides and neon under glow kits also stop wheel hop...

Thanks primer for the tip, I'll go check my headlight fluid...

Ohh. What about the radio grease?

Damn! You mean I've been doing it wrong all these years? I've always poured the fluid into the blinkers. That explains a lot...

BTW, here's where I've always gotten my blinker fluid: KaleCoAuto.com, Your home for the rare, unusual, and hard to find auto parts.
