You didn't say what tires you're using.  I experienced this some years ago
when I put some high performance street radials on the TR4A while we were
waiting on Hoosier to bring out the new Speedsters.  A race tire expert at
BFG told me it was the tread alternately gripping and then letting loose
that caused the hopping sensation.  It went away when I changed to the
Speedsters.  Don
