That was probably from your adventures in wheel hopping, not from the power necessary for your 104mph trap speeds. :P

<p>Its a miata. Wheelhop happens. Even when slipping the clutch sometimes the tires just blow off and bounce lol.</p>

It's there not a way to fix hop on the miatas? You need to install my bearing thing, and go with delrin where you can.

upper or lower? it kind of matters.
Upper - yes
Lower - Can be done, but alignment is difficult/impossible.

<p>So upper delrin, lower poly? That might help.</p><p>I know real slicks will make a huge difference.</p>

I really enjoy reading your thread among a bunch of others. My $0.02 worth: When you drag race, raise your ride height as high as you can get it at all 4 corners. Think weight transfer on launch and use your tires as the slip mechanism instead of the clutch.

<p>Using tires as a slip mechanism just creates wheel hop. Thats why I have to slip the clutch.</p><p>If I dragged more I would change the ride height, but I don't want to mess up my alignments.</p>

I was thinking of tires with less traction. But, yes, that's a lot work for the occasional drag.

<p>I get just as much wheel hop with shitty tires. They spin until the rev limiter, then hop when they start to gain traction.</p>

<p>Basically Miata's suck as drag cars. I like going to the drag strip, and I'm going to bandaid the problem the best I can, but not at the expense of ruining my track car.</p>

<p>How big should the delrin be in relation to the sleeve? Like press fit?&nbsp;Does it need a sleeve inside where the bolt goes through?</p>

<p>They don't need to be greased right?</p><p>Do the sphericals need to be greased?</p>
