Pulling a bolt in two is never as easy as breaking it in two.
I was looking for a mount that gets rid of the verticle bolt design on the trans side. Seems like the verticle design works w/ the stock style rubber mounts= The motor moves around or pivots. Then you add a poly bushing & the alloy tower on the trans breaks or cracks. Seems like PT performance is another horizon bolt design, like Sure motorsports. Now which on?

Who's running poly motor & trans mounts?

I'm thinking of getting a set of Sure Motorsport mounts. I was just looking for some input, if it was really worth it or not. Some of the write ups are saying it reduces wheel hop or axle tramp. I already have a vf engineering dogbone which helps a lot. I know they will add a little more vibes at idle. The Sure motorsports trans mount takes the verticle bolt & puts it in to a horizontal plane, which I'd say is a better design.
