lower engine mount?

Out of all the mounts I've herd this is the best one to replace for shifts and spritted driving.
My question is between the ones like the cfm street mount and the race mount. How much more stiff is a race mount over a street mount(pros and cons) how dose it feel for dd driving and how are the vibes at idle?

personally the vibration at idle doesnt bother me at all and i dont pay it any attention. it drives my fiance' NUTS if she rides with and we sit still for any extended period of time LOL! as far as "FEEL" goes i could never tell a difference except that the car vibrates at idle and very low rpm cruising and i replaced all 3 mounts at once. i only did it because i got tired of replacing torn up and blown out stock mounts. pass side 3 times, dog bone 4 times, driver side once. since i put vf engineering polyurethane mounts ive not broken one yet. i would have used SOLID motor mounts had i been able to find any at the time

well race will vibrate a little more since its a firmer poly mount than the street. But either way the added vibrations should not be that noticeable unless your at an idle. and even then you would only notice since you have been in the car before and after. I argue that if you first got the car with it in you would not be able to "notice" it.
