Keep us posted. If it works I'll just save for that one.

I have the MS3 mount with the CorkSport insert. A bit of vibration off the line. But the instant response it give through the gears if well worth any dollar amount for an enjoyable smooth shifting ride!

If I was to replace my stock rmm with the MS3 rmm, will doing so affect my warranty? I also have noticeable engine movement shifting from 1st into 2nd and want to replace the rmm asap. Thanks in advance!

I don't know the law in Canada, but unless it causes some other failure they probably are not even going to check to see if it is stock.

If this tuning solution becomes available, you'll really be able to increase the stiffness of the mount because you will be able to raise your idle, which will drastically reduce the vibes.

Ok you guys will have to excuse my ignorance. Im a motorcycle and atv guy so all of this doesnt make complete sense to me. I drive a stock"ish" 2013 Hatch se, what is the benefit of replacing the rear motor mounts for me? It seems to be a common "upgrade" but i cant figure out why exactly.

If you drive agressively there is a ton of wheel hop, and a lound bang on the 1-2 shift from the engine moving too much and hitting things. The RMM cuts down on both of those.

It's a great upgrade if you like to drive spirited from time to time, but if not it's probably not a big deal.

Haha , you sir have given me some primo info right there ! My atx fofo is sitting at the trans shop right now because i was convinced it had a trans problem , they called me today and said the trans is fine. So i figure my mounts must be toasted huh? Btw i am getting the " bang " you speak of when i drive " spirited ".
