Engine mounts
Okay so, I broken in my clutch after 700 wanted to test the clutch and attempt a burnout at our local lame 1/8th track... Yes I'm aware that burnout on radial tires are counter productive. and instead of spinning them they made a strange grip noise, didn't hook. Freaked me out sounded like my tires came off my wheel almost. Was this wheel hop? I do have a Torsen, I'm building for FI, guess I needed opinions on this, I think I have a aftermarket dogbone mount it's red my driver/passager side is black rubber mounts. Massive claims there inserts help prevent wheel hop, should I just swap out my poly for these, and also get poly/massive if they make driver/passanger side inserts? How about the VF mount'inserts from fswerks they're alum just like stock ones but supposly they're stronger then steel ones? but 150 a pop

I have a insert in the dogbone and both VF mounts on either side of the motor. If you have a raised idle @ 1000k rpm's it's not harsh and I do recommend it if you plan on dragging the car. It's a good investment.. I would do it. It won't hurt that's for sure.

For the trans. mount you might want to try Sure motorsports. The pass. side of svt's are different. Having CFM's tubular front arms helps w/ wheel hop also. What aftermarket dogbone do you have? I have vf engineering one w/ no issues & I have more torque than you do. What is your 60' times? How are you leaving?
