Default Bad Torque Axis Mount?

I'm interested to hear from anyone that has had a torque axis mount go bad or break.

When pulling my motor, I found the mount had some tears in places not visible unless the mount is out of the car.

Last time I had mine out, it had some tears. But no other evidence that would make me think it was bad.

Do we have the same mount to begin with?

Same story here Boosty. I have low-level cracks in my mount, and decided to just keep it in. Hmm...I wonder if you can fill it in with urethane and make it a bit stiffer?
