explain "jumping". could just be the way you are letting the clutch out and giving it gas.

it was doing it to the owner to. like jerking forward but not stalling just like shaking kinda. he said its got a stage 4 clutch. like when i first took off it didnt do it but everytime after that it did

hmm...i have no idea then. ive drove my friends and it never jerked once.

yea like its like the stalling feeling but it does it like 4 times then starts going kinda like shaking it will shake the cover of the head unit off before it goes

is the whole car doing that or just an engine? maybe bad motor mount? or it got solid motor mounts and you can feel all that vibration in the car. Looks like its an old post.... did you figure it out?

It could be that the clutch is more of a race clutch and they need a different touch. Or you are just starting off way to hard and getting wheel hop

Well it would really help to know if you knew what kind of clutch was in the car. if its anything like a racing style which is much more aggressive and has a higher clamping force, it will do what is known as "chatter". clutch chatter is unexcapable when using a race clutch. its just higher friction material which makes for a harsher engagement and will make the car shake. holds a ton of power though which is a plus.

If you're taking off hard on stock motor mounts the car WILL Wheel Hop.
