Default wheel hop

I have a 2007 350Z which I really like except the wheel hop issue.
Iv'e decided to buy a 2016 370Z Nismo but can anyone tell me if
the wheel hop issues has been solved in the 2016 or is it still the
same old suspension problem ? 350 hp is great if great but not
if you can't use it.

Wheel hop??

You mean as in from sudden acceleration from dead stop?

Never experienced same in my Z33s nor our Z34N. But then again, don't drag race Z cars. Drag racing in my '71 Nova was interesting.... wheel hop cured with a set of Lakewood bars...

I would test drive the '16 and sidestep the clutch from 4k to see if the problem persists.

Diff bushing inserts and a diff brace removed any wheel hop I experienced 100% on my 08.

Had severe wheel hop with lowered setup. Got alignment done and removed heavy toe and now mild to moderate wheel hop.
