You can baby the car so it doesn't do that but the real fix is going to be getting lower control arms and upper control arm and a pan hard bar and stiffen up the back end.

What you are describing is wheel hop.

Yea it sounds like you're going a little to hard on the throttle coming off a shift. Alas, this is my first manual as well so maybe I just baby it too much going 0-60 haha. I get wheel hop when I hit small raised bumps in the road, kind of disturbing haha

I disagree with nosypathy's post. Although those mods are great, what you're experiencing is nothing more than slight wheel spin. Cold climates, cold tires, and driver input are all contributing factors to this. Take it easy in seasonal weather, keep the nannies on, and be safe. You'll know wheel hop when you get it. This is not it. Good luck and be safe!

Just remember: the throttle and brake are not toggle switches. Smooth inputs counts for a lot.

Is there a way to calculate how much more grip you get with good LCAs? Like If you have the stock 255 Pirellis, will they grip like 285s?

Looking back I think I misread his post. I thought he was talking about the back end hopping but rereading it that doesn't seem to be the case. My bad

smozilla is correct tho, colder temps and such can cause this. I still have it happen when it is warm, but fixes for this for my understanding are stickier wider tires and still the UCA/LCA.

I currently have the all season pirellies and know if I went with some sticky summer tires this would go away.
