What causes wheel hop?
The main cause of wheel hop is an imperfect or improper geometry of suspension and tires. A normal suspension setup and tires work perfectly fine for an average car; however, things dramatically change when normal suspension and tires are subjected to increased power output.

Does pinion angle cause wheel hop?
Setting pinion angle keeps you from destroying driveshafts, ujoints, and pinion bearings. Wheel hop is caused by what the others have said about the susp moving(spring wrap) and traction of tires. You need the susp to keep the pinion angle realtively the same, and in turn it stops wheel hop also.F
Why does my car hop when I do a burnout?
It’s normal. Wheel hop is just the tire losing and regaining traction repeatedly.
What does axle hop mean?

How do you get rid of axle hops?
Regardless of whether your car has a live axle or independent rear suspension, the fixes are largely the same: replacing the soft rubber bushings with either polyurethane bushings or spherical bearings. The rub, of course, is a less-refined ride and more road noise transmitted to the interior.
What causes axle hop?
Wheel hop is caused by the rear wheels being allowed too much motion in relation to the chassis and struggling to get grip. Think of it like this. As you push the throttle, the wheels go into motion, but as the wheels move forward, the toe angle changes and you lost grip.A

What is rear axle hop?
Wheel hop is the rear axle loading and unloading itself in rapid succession. It’s caused (as you stated) from either the design of the axle, worn parts, soft parts, hard tire sidewalls, or any combination of these. Wheel hop is very common in vehicles with leaf springs and straight axles.A
