anytime bro, glad to help you can get even better if you keep trying

btw I got 14.24 @158.99km/h in the drag....seems like a good time for GTIs running our rubbish 91 octane fuel!

Wheel hop is very common on a FWD platform. The movement of the engine under load causes movement in the drivetrain all the way to the wheels. So the tires are fighting traction and being wiggled by the engine at the same time.

Almost every company made a torque arm insert for the MK6 which fixed the issue for the most part. Keeps the engine from torquing back and forth. Engine mounts help as well. Im not aware of anyone making inserts for this platform yet.. But i guarantee they will!

THIS.

I ran hoosier slicks for drag racing and going to the car hangouts for a while. The complete fix for the wheel hop was a VFengineering pendulum mount, after I went through 2 inserts ofcourse... After that, the car never wheel hoped again, and felt alot tighter. You can also feel the improved throttle response and a deeper growl from the exhaust while on idle.

Agree with this, it's common whisdom on the Mk.V/VI GTI and still present on the Mk.VII.
The GTI shares the same soft engine mounts as most (if not all) 1.8/2.0T transverse
engine VAG models (Passat etc.). Sadly VW does not fit stiffer parts to the sportier cars.
These mounts quickly detoriate if driven hard and wheel hop gets even worse with age.

Only cure: Get stiffer engine mounts. Best bets on the Mk.V/VI were THS and Vibratechnics.
Hope they'll make similar parts for the MQB platform soon. The pendulum mount insert does
not fix the issue completely, at least not long term.

Yep... Motor mounts are what you need. Every FWD car has the same issue with stock motor mounts

Wheel hop is quite common.

There is a lot of information on the forum concerning. See here:

How do you engage launch control on these? Is it just like the Mk6? I can't find it in the manual.

I have the 6 speed manual in my '17 and get wheel hop like crazy when letting the clutch out ~2-3000rpm in 1st

I would love if someone could educate me on mods that can tighten things up?
It scared me the first few times, thought it was or some engine component grinding to hell after dropping the clutch (relatively slowly)

Didn't know what it was until I watched the video's linked by Tyrant (Thanks btw)

Terrible wheel hop comes standard...it's the overly soft engine, trans, and dog bone mounts.

There's TONS of info on this around here. I personally suggest at least a BFI dog bone mount insert, but I run all three of their stage 2 mounts and love them

Holy thread resurrection batman.

Dogbone insert = no wheel hop. Simple cheap fix, had one on mine for over 2 years.

Haha thanks guys! I'm new on here so everything is new to me. Didn't even realize this was two years old until you mentioned the resurrection.

I'll check out the dog bone inserts. It's mostly a daily driver until I get the itch to remind myself I dumped a dodge dart for the GTI and now have some oomph under the hood.

Probably better than starting a new thread then someone linking you to this one.

Do a search on here for the 034Motorsport dogbone mount seems to be the best value and that is the one I have.

Can someone enlighten me regarding mechanics linking engine mounts and wheel hop? My understanding is that the issue is strictly caused by high engine torque, limited tire traction and ECS cutting power momentarily and resulting feedback loop (as the whole system is reacting to detected loss of traction and not really preventing it so the cycle keeps repeating until the driver takes foot off the gas or the vehicle is at the speed/in gear where overcoming tire grip is no longer possible). I've observed it myself couple of times - particularly when I let the engine rev way too high for my forward speed. Also rough/bumpy road surface helps break tire/road contact and makes the issue more likely to happen. As much a limitation of FWD as the driver error.

I think you nailed it.

Exactly what I’ve been trying to put together when I had very bad thudding and loss of power trying to accelerate fast from a light when the roads were slick. Forgot to turn off stability/traction control. Thudded, lost power and felt like wheel hop. Been wondering if I caused any damage to components...though everything seems normal after.

Even when you hold the traction control button down it doesnít solve it. Iíll still get the light and torque limiter kicking in. Better than not doing it though. Itís fíed me on launches before.

OBDeleven solve this?

Periodic wheel hop shouldn't cause damage... but cars with added power, and more rarely stock cars, have cracked or broken engine mounts due to wheel hop... but in most situations ist just a huge inconvenience.
