Wheel hop problem

Hey guys after running at the track this past weekend, during one of my runs I discovered the nasty wheel hop wondering what you Guys have done or do to control this, It was a low 50 degree night at the track and I was spinning a lot.. But lets talk about solutions I know http://http://www.defivfabrication.com/ offers a solution with bushings and what not seeing what else you guys know of!

i would recommend the defiv option also not because i have it but because it works. also you can try different tire pressure settings for the rear and see if anything changes

under your car there is a brace that ties the rear subframe to the body of the car.

Isn't the Defi kit for 335i and 335is only? This is an xi thread. Does it work on an xi/xdrive 335i?
