For those of you who requested a mount, I will be getting to those this week so you all should have them by next week. Sorry for being slow, been busy.

Yes and no, my work kinda stopped me after I got a few out, "kinda stealing", but everyonce in a as long as I got scrap, I can make em without it being a "deal". But I think Im gonna keep it as a "Meet Only" thing. Like if there is a WhateverBF meet, next year im gonna try and make it to a lot, I'll make a few and bring them with me. So, yes they are available, but by Meet only. If that makes sense.

Depending on cost of material, you could offer to buy the stuff from your company. Or.... I have some old Bandag re-tread at my place with some substantially thick and firm rubber. I could bring you a sheet of it if you want. Let me know before it'* too late!

you can make one (solid mount) its so simple, i made the first one and its holding up good. 2000SilverBullet made the second one and its still going strong.
i like mine (over 130,000+ miles on it). lift the hood, rock the car(back and forth) in park, see all that movement even with a new mount.
that is not good for all the fule lines, electrical lines, exhaust pipe so on and so on.
it will also help the torque steer. it will help put the power to the ground.
i made a 3" wide motor mount for my car, but i made a 2 1/2" wide motor mount for a friend and it works just as GOOD.
we used a 2 1/2" hole saw and cut holes (wafers) out of the sidewall of an old truck tire. cost for his solid mount $0.00 and he has over 50,000 miles with out any problems.
if i had to make a new one for my car i would use the wafers made out of the sidewall of an old truck tire.
the distance between the top of the BOTTOM cross member and the bottom of the TOP
motor mount bracket is 3 5/8". i used a 7 1/2" bolt, put it in from the bottom with the double nut on top. (no smart a$$ jokes about the NUTS on top).
