Default Need a little help with this problem

Ok, heres the situation. When under hard acceleration, the front end of the car kinda lifts up and I get wheel hop. This only does it when gunning it after a turn. Particularly after a really slow 180 going into a short straight. My clutch does engage a little hard and I don't know if that's whats making the front end lift a little. I've played with droop and it does it no matter what. Here's my setup:

MTX-3
16/19 conversion
Front droop- 2mm
Rear droop- 5mm
Ride height front - 4.5mm
Rear height - 5.5mm
Rear blocks B/B
Front tires trued - 61mm
Rear tires -64mm
Front sway- flat
Rear sway - Silver bar

Currently I'm using the Novarossi ART 50220. It's the black low end pipe. I switch between that and the RD Logics pipe.

Running very hard tyres may require very large amounts of steering, the large angle of the front wheels can upset the balance of the car. Even on very high traction I would rarely go over 42s. I also use Japanese rubber, I find they wear less and this allows smaller diameter tyres.

Yes, it hops at the same spot. The last turn right in front of the drivers stand. Also going into the straight. I don't know if the bumps there, but I can actually see the car lift from that distance.
