What to buy? Looking for dogbone mount...

I know FSWerks has the VF-Engineering mount, and that CFM has a mount (not sure which one it is on their website), are there any others?

What are you guys using and why did you pick it? If I choose the CFM one, what's the difference between street and race? Bushing stiffness? I'm not planning on racing, but I do drive it hard pretty often.

I've personally decided on the CFM unit solely because it's $20 cheaper. CFM has both street and race options (different durometer bushings) whereas VF is only a single bushing type though if that influences your decision at all.

Is this the right mount to help reduce wheel hop on hard take offs? And I take it that the street bushings from CFM are sufficient enough for what I want?

I have the super race and it's is really stiff. It took a few weeks for it to calm down, but I really like it!

I have a CFM dogbone I'll sell you. I'll post some pic if you are interested.

Sure post them up. Which bushings? And are either of these rebuildable? If I wanted to order new bushings (or the race ones) could I push the old out and the new in?

The dogbone is the one you want for reducing wheel hop although you'll definitely see even better behavior with all three replaced. I had racing mounts (maybe 1/3" of polyuerethane 90A durometer material) on my '07 Civic Si and it vibrated like crazy but I could break my tires loose all day long without a single hint of wheel hop.

I know that would make the vibrations too much at idle without a tune to bump up the idle speed.

Yeah I'm sure you could buy new bushings if you wanted. I'll post pics tonight.
