2015 Challenger Scat Pack 6 speed manual. This thing hops something terrible. I’m afraid of breaking something, so until I get this issue addressed, no more letting her rip.

Anyone have any suggestions? I’m not wanting to spend thousands. Hopefully it won’t cost near that much to fix this.

?

Had the same problem on my 2016 Shaker R/T, installed BMR upper and lower trailing arms and upper control arms to the rear suspension as well as a rear cradle bushing lock out kit ( also BMR ).
I also installed a Per4ormance Development rear differential brace. No more wheel hop.

I am trying to fix this issue with the above mentioned diff brace and Rear Tension Arms from Speedlogix
I can sit there and spin sometimes no problem, other times when the tires are warmer I think it hops like crazy. And like you I am afraid of braking something, I've had diff problems before from burnouts gone wrong (Ram 1500 with LSD & 4.56 gears).

I haven't done the Tension Arm install yet, soon tho

Keep me posted on how this works out once you finish the install, please.

Some brands of tires are more prone to wheel hop, the Eagles F1 on my SRT8 were terrible. Pirelli Nero were not as bad but not quit the quality of the Conti i have put after them.

Polyurethane cradle bushings will fix wheel hop. I went with White Line. Drag radials will help.
