So i knew my mounts have been going for a while. Put poly bushings in the dogbone over a year ago and knew something was up because i was still getting wheel hop bad. Had an extra drivers mount laying around from the svt so i filled it with construction urathane and it worked awesome. Nice and firm but something was still off. Picked up a pass side and swapped them out. Just what i thought, pass mount had no fluid. Car shifts and feels amazing now. No wheel hop. I am going to fill the old pass mount with window weld urethane to have a stiffer mount on that side also. Sorry for writing a book but i think im in love with my car again...

and no you didn't. I was at home by that point, but also my focus doesn't leave the garage anymore. I've only driven it once since the beginning of december. what did the one you saw look like? I have a friend that also has a 09 vista blue coupe. stock 16's, lowered, tinted windows and F2 header. there is also a 10-11 blue flame coupe that i've seen around with tinted windows, think it has eap's, and a FSWerks decal accross the windshield.
