Same for me. I've yet to experience wheel hop? Drop the clutch in 1st or 2nd and its nothing but a smoke show...and I love it.

As it turns out, fun generally costs money.
For example, my brother and I decided it would be fun to see how long we could hang on to the doors of my 340 Cuda while wetting the tires and dumping the clutch. About the the fifth time we grenaded the clutch and after a tow home we were replacing the clutch and flywheel.

But, it was worth it! that was in 1978???

Are you on stock brand tires? When my RT was NA it would hop every once in a while but now with FI it generally just spins. My firestone 245s would spin with easy...those had the worst traction. When I upgraded to 245 nittos (420), there were occasions where I would just get into hop...usually after the tires got nice an sticky with the linelock and launched hard during a 30 mph roll. Even the 315 nittos (555) are easy to spin in 2nd in these sub 50F temperatures but I am expecting that to change once the weather gets warmer.
