Wheel hop can occur anytime torque (twist) overcomes traction (friction). It can happen on pavement or rough surfaces. It sets up a harmoninc movement that continues untill torque is reduced...or something goes >BANG<.
I should note that adding a longer block doesn't mean you'll have issues, only that it increases the potential, just like any other mod. In other words...I've seen stock suspensions with high powered motors have this problem.
