Well now that people have realized that it's the same mount as the MS3 this could be a tough market... however people do typically prefer something that was "made for their application".

There are also a few pictures of the stock mount floating around now.... and it's more than obvious that needs to be addressed. Should be on everyone's short list IMO.

Whether I end up with an ST or a regular 2012/13. I'd definitely be interested. How about that G trac brace sold as a stand alone item?

I would be interested in the rear engine mount, but really interested in the Steeda G-Trac Front end Brace installed on the Steeda 001 FF.

Soooo... I replaced the stock mount with a take-off MS3 mount that will allow me the option of installing poly inserts later. The results are excellent.

MS3 mount...



Stock mount... (almost totally rubber!)
