Things that MAY contribute to wheel hop:

-Worn out Differential mount bushings.
-Worn out rear toe links
-Worn out trailing arm bushings
-A Cracked power plant frame (PPF)
-Worn out engine mounts.
-Worn out rear suspension arm bushings.
-Axel or CV problems

Well for a real cure you need to get slicks and I dont mean the Drag radials either. I talked to Ari about this on the phone a few months ago and he said its been a nightmare for him. He said the drag radials grip and then slip and then grip again causing the hop. The slicks he used to use (until they changed the rules for his class) always hooked with no wheel hop issues. For guys running real power you gotta run good ol wrinkle walls or you will have hop. There is no other cure. Some things may help but nothing like using Real slicks. Of course its not an option for the street but your not supposed to be launching at 7 grand at stop lights right? LOL

heheh,
on the topic of launch revs,
launching at 3k, or just above, with a close to stock FD,
was REALLY great,

Thats what won most races for me,
i'd annihilate em off the line. It's not until 2 or 3rd, when
those super horsepower monsters would catch up.
