We threw some prototype parts into a car tonight, but for information that others may find interesting:

Old setup:
Group N engine mounts
Group N trans mount
Kartboy pitch stop

Motion of engine at startup 0.65".

New setup:
Test engine mounts from MAW with soft bushings installed
Group N trans mount
Kartboy pitch stop

Motion of engine at startup 0.35".

Surprisingly not harsh. Can you feel it? Yes. Is it obnoxious? No.

As I said video is forthcoming. Oh, and I have some pics too.


So you guys wait until after I find a new job and no longer design and manufacture engine mounts to start making/testing engine mounts?! I could have been useful.

Now I'll have to wait until you guys decide to produce an active rear differential so I can develop the software and calibrate it for you.
