The Vf mount will give better performance, but with more shake. The factory with inserts is cheaper. It doesn't perform quite as well, but doesn't shake as bad. You have to decide performance or ride quality. Hope this helps.

I had a VF mount on my first SVT and it was smooth; awesome mod. I have a Mac mount in this one, and it will SHAKE YOUR TEETH OUT.

had vf on my red car, the shake was pretty bad (rattttttling steering column plastic was annoying) and the poly inserts in the svt. the inserts are cheaper and don't shake as bad.

I have the VF dogbone on both my SVT and ZX3 and no shaking at all. I'm way happy with it. If you get all 3 VF mounts, expect shaking.
