My 535i's axle hops very badly, I've learned not to drag race with this car. It seems to get worse as traction goes down. I recently read a review of Dinan's pumped up 540 race car, they said it had the same problem, so I'm not too worried. ;)

One time I gunned it a little too hard in the rain, and rather than spinning the tires smoothly like on regular pavement, the rear end shook violently... ouch... =P

Now THAT"S wheel hop. I've gotten that a few times myself. My bro's Goat gets it REAL bad, too. That's why he can't win a race!
