thanks to the people in advance..

i tried serching thrue the fourms and cant seem to find my answer so here it goes.

usually when i launch i burn out and my car takes off fast and it was a smooth launch but recently when i try burrning out my tires start to skip and from inside it feels like my car is jumping up and down from the front!!

what can seem to cause this?

my tires have way more than 70% percent of thread left..

are you simply "dropping" the clutch? if so, you need to stop doing that. the hopping is very bad and will break a lot of things if you keep doing it. you need to learn to pre-load the drive train.

yes i think i am!

well sadly im a noob at this..

when i try launching what i usually do is hold down the clutch halfways not all the way down and rev it to about 3500 and at the same time let go of the clutch and gun the gas!

before this it use to lauch soooo nice now its jumping ans sputtering

Imagine this, every time you do that your basically hopping the wheel into the air, then it spins really fast and then suddenly hits the ground and all that pressure is instantly transfered to the hub, axle, transmission everything. Mainly the diff pins explode and wreak havoc in the trannys.

Wheel hop will break shit if you don't fix the problem. Try feathering the clutch more, get some motor mount inserts, and possibly a traction bar if you have the funds.
