    Ok so i have my ls/vtec ongoing car daily driver project, i have a gsr tranny with an Act stage 2 clutch and Fidanza lightened flywheel, i was going to purchase an ETD racing traction bar setup for my car to elimate wheel hop and the inital throw off the line, would this be a good idea even though i do not plan on installing an lsd at this point in time due to time constraints?

    Do you have the Motor Mount inserts? That would be a cheaper way to eliminate wheel hop. I'm not sure your car is wicked enough to need some T-bars.

    Stock Accords and ED Civic/CRX's come with traction bars, so your car doesn't have to be extreme to need them. I've heard of people breaking the joints on the ETD bars, may want to look elsewhere.

    mount inserts, lsd and traction bars are the best way to eilminate wheel hop...obviously inserts are the cheapest id start there

    I have two sets of Energy Suspension mounts. Some of the best money you can spend. I got mine from Summitsportcompact.com. They have good prices on a lot of stuff. I also have a set of Traction bars that I haven't installed yet. I will by the spring. I still have a bit of wheel hop.
