Which mount was "beefed" up? The rear motor mount is still very flimsy on stock job 2 2012+ builds, and even the mazda speed 3 one while initially being a bit stiffer still isn't enough to prevent wheel hop and or axle clanging when the traction control tries to fight to regain power over the throttle.

I don't like going near open throttle with the car in first gear either stationary or on a moderate roll as it tends to clang violently with the traction control on, and spin the tires with it off, at least it did with the stock 16" wheels, not sure if I've tried with the tcs off yet, but with it on it does the same basic thing.
