I was looking at companies that offer FWD traction soloutions and came accrost an interesting one.

Traction Bars

It seems like a fairly simple and affordable option for better traction. I sent them an e-mail to see if these can possibly be adapted for use on our cars. By the looks of the product and looking at the stock suspention it should work with little modification. Possibly these and improved engine mounts should help out alot. Anything to reduce wheel hop and improve traction cant be a bad thing.

Thoughts on this are welcome as I am not a suspention expert ;)

If my understanding of it is correct, this system corrects torque steer by keeping the front lower control arms stationary in respects to the length of the car. It won't do jack for wheel hop, I don't think.

I had a huge prob with wheel hop on my srt, even with struts and springs it was still as bad, till i changed the motor mounts, and worked great, till i broke the motor mount bolts. What can you do.

We are prducing lower control arm bushings to fix this issue and to control wheel hop. Here is a pic of the SRT-4s that we make. They will be very similar.

And here is what they do

Just a shout out for the Psi-Fi guys :)

I have these on my SRT4 and they are simply amazing, it made the car feel completly different! ZERO wheel hop and better 60 foot times :)

Thanks guys!

I don't know how much power everyone in here is running, but I am running in a 04 RL with GM stage 2 with Jason Smith header and K&N CAI and I just installed the lower torque brace which joined with my upper mount torque brace have pretty much eliminated my wheel hop.

2004 rl. i have no torque braces, no poly bbushings, no traction bar.
if i drop the clutch at any rpm i have no wheel hop. but i spin the crap out of the tires.
i only get it if i let the clutch out slowly. and than only occasionally. but it does suck when my wheels hop. it turned my windshield wipers on once. that cant be good.
