I keep hearing about this stuff on here and i want to know what exatcly it does. I am getting some bad wheel hop and i herd this stuff could fix the problem if placed correctly in my motor mounts. If anyone could shed some light that would be great.

would strut bars help with that to. Like stiffen up the frame or something

Strut bars will not help with wheel hop, they provide an outward tension on the strut towers to stop them from flexing inward.

EDIT-I've been out of the MX6 game for over a year, and have little need to get back into modifying them, but does anyone make torsion bars or hop bars?

Pmo made traction bars but they went out of business.-Justin

Heres my take on this. I had wheel hop back before i started restoring my 6 (actually repairing it, every F'n week)
Basically i got all new motor mounts, control arm bushings and struts. Now i have no wheel hop at all.
Realisticly the stock parts should control wheel hop, unless your making over 250hp (give or take)
The poly parts are a bit stiffer and last longer, Also cost more.
I dont recommend the inserts, There a pain to install
