No, not at all. Maybe your motor mounts are on the way out the door already? Sounds like it's happening when you're putting big surges into the drivetrain. I'd look at your mounts and such.

I got the same thing the first second day i had the car. I had a perfect shift into second and hear a pretty loud "thunk" and was scared to death that i had just busted a motor mount. It hasnt done it again since. Could it of been wheel hop? It was just one thunk and that was it, im pretty sure we experienced the same thunk :)

If you break a motor mount, will it make noticable noise every time you shift? Or can a broken motor mount go unnoticed?

This car has enough torque that the few times I've launched I've did it in
2nd gear! Wheel hop was not as bad as a 1st gear launch. we need the lsd and some type of traction bar for sure! BeRad
