I've got 5 of these sitting in my garage. Been working great for me for the last year.

Solid front motor mount made out of Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene with a grade 8 bolt.

Does having a solid mount make it harsh at idle?

My experience has been that there is a very small rpm range you will actually notice a resonance, and it'* at the very bottom of a gear when slowly accelerating. Nothing that has made me regret putting one on. This could probably be defeated by using some type of insulation between the mount, I've just got it solid on the bottom and an old chunk of tire on top. I'm slightly curious how it would be if I just had it solid on both ends and took the tire chunk off.

I'll let you know when I do mine.

From around 1600rpm up to 2k rpm you'll feel the difference, all other rpms is just as normal. And Tommy I would have gotten one of those but I needed the cheapest solution
