Let us help you go fast!
TiC needs 4 testers....
For engine mounts.
2 for the softer bushings
2 for the harder bushings
Throw your name in this thread, and why. THIS THREAD. Really simple. If you flood my PM box you are not following the very first instruction so how can I expect you to follow the others?
Items that will help with selection:
Once we have made out decision we will contact each person. It will do you absolutely no good to continue to ask once we have announced that the testers have been chosen.
We expect to pick the testers over the course of the next two weeks.
For an idea of what we are getting independent feedback on check this out:

How do these compare with Cusco mounts (harder/softer? durability?)? I just put a set of those in, but I might be interested in swapping them out if you are interested. I'm never one to say no to free stuff, haha. It looks like a very similar design though.
I have a 2011 WRX. 20G XTR on E85. Bolt on's, build motor, built tranny, etc. Daily driven with occasional track days (but wouldn't see any more until next season). I do all of the installs in my garage. Here is the thread on my car.
Post on the mounts:
And a few other reviews I've done:
I understand if you're not interested, since I just installed new mounts. Too bad this didn't come up a couple weeks ago. My car was badly in need of new motor mounts (I had been using stock ones). I wouldn't be too heartbroken if you choose someone else, I'm not all that too excited about having to re-do that install anyways, haha.

I've tried stock mounts, and filled stock mounts, both are too soft.
Group N mounts crumble under the weight.
Give me something harder to test and I'll put it through the wringer. I cannot guarantee you a favorable review though if they fail. If they do well though, I'll get the word out! I know of 3 other people with the EG swap looking for more-solid (but not welded) mounts.
My car is a DD but also a fun car, It'll see rally-x action (but probably not in the 2 week timeframe).
I can also guarantee install within 2 days of receiving them. (I just put the motor in a couple weeks ago, still have all the tools out lol!)
Let me know!
EDIT: I also have a Contour ROAM camera, and could provide before/after video footage of the flex during cornering/accel/decel/etc.

Bone stock, starting to mod out now.
I've done reviews for other products not automotive related and also I am a former mechanic who now works for snap-on in their diagnostics division.
I think I would be a good person to choose because I can give you a sample of base line change, while these mounts may work great with a modified vehicle they may have some werid adverse affect on a stock one. Swapping mounts is not that hard so if they are crazy hard/soft I can swap em back out to stock again easily.

Haters Gonna Hate
Pretty awesome concept you guys are going with here.
07 STi with ~ 95,000 miles on the body and ~ 4,000 miles on a brand new block with CP pistons/rings and a Dom 1.5XT-R tuned to 395/393. The car sites on A'pexi coilovers and has front and rear endlinks and sways. Currently on stock wheels with Evo 12s but am waiting for lugs to come in any day now for my set of Advans with Star Specs sitting in my garage.
This is my DD and I drive it in the dirt, on the street, in traffic, and on backroads. Never been to the track although in the future I'd like to hit up Road Atlanta to further my skills as a driver. I do a lot of long distance driving and generally love to drive (I put around 70,000+ miles on the car in 2 years) so a blend between comfort and performance is key.
I bought Group N mounts recently and haven't installed them yet. I was going to do them at the same time with my Group N tranny mount, which just arrived, among other things.
Plenty of other goodies on the car, I just don't believe anything else is worth mentioning in regards to this request/test.
I've never done a review on NASIOC but that's not to say that I won't or am incapable. Besides the fact that I have multiple driving styles, I will be 100% honest and impartial in the review I would give to any product.

I have a 2006 WRX, Stage 2/Protuned. Current driveline mods:
Motor mounts are the last thing to do. I've had that list ^^ for about 6 months now, so i'm very familiar with how it feels with stock motor mounts. I have a week with the SO away on business Nov 2-11 so i was planning on ordering the grpN mounts and doing the install then...but that COULD be the TiC mounts.
My car is purely a DD, no track time yet, so i won't be able to provide much feedback on track performance.

If possible I’d like to offer up my cars and be one of those testers.
I have the following two personal cars to do it on, just a minor note on the state of each car. I don't want to clutter the thread with my pages long lists!
1999 2.5RS Track Car.
2005 Legacy GT Daily driver.
I turn my own wrenches of course, and have done several reviews before.
Here is a full build thread on a swap I did.
Tool review as an example.
Radiator review I posted today
and just for kicks a rant I did
Hope I get to be one of the lucky few, not to brown nose but I really like your products.

I've been dealing with a 1st-2nd gear change grinding issue when shifting hard. I've read that changing to stiffer mounts will help with this particular issue. I would be more than happy to do a review for TiC on these mounts.
I have a 2011 STI hatchback with about 15k on the clock. I'm running Cobb stage 2 + SF intake 91 oct map, Cobb SF intake with the cold air box, catless Invidia divorced WG downpipe, and GReddy Spectrum Elite catback. I also have a Cobb adjustable short throw shifter and Katboy front and rear shifter bushings (grinding issue became more apparent after this). I recently installed Stop Tech braided stainless steel brake lines, Grimmspeed brake master cylinder brace, Goodridge braided stainless steel clutch line (install instructions and review below), and flushed both systems with DOT 4 brake fluid. Other than cosmetic enhancements, that's about all I have for performance mods.
My car is a daily driver that I also use for track and autocross events. Here's a vid from a few months ago:
This video is the best example I can give to explain my 1-2 grinding problem. Sorry for the long intro, FF to 1:15. You can clearly hear it grind when I shift from first to second gear:
I did an install writeup on my clutch line, mainly because I couldn't find one really anywhere. I have lots of pics and went into as much detail as I could.
I also have a sound clip of my exhaust setup.

Interested in being a tester!!!
Car: 2004 Impreza wrx
I am currently doing a full built motor from top to bottom and hoping to shoot for 600+whp and I still have stock motor mounts.. So this would be a great upgrade and test to see if they will handle and work well for the setup. I am also a subaru mechanic and have done all the work on my own car myself.

To give good feedback, we would really need to know what you are looking to find out.
Here is a quick blurb on my car
1999L with 06 WRX/ 05 STI drivetrain...basically a stage 2 GC STI.
I have most drivetrain bushings, which IMO helps show the difference in NVH between different brand mounts. In the car I currently have Cusco mounts, but I have had Group-N as well as Tigwerks mounts.
- FCAR Bushings
- Lateral Link Bushings
- F/R Trailing link bushings
- Rear Diff and outrigger bushings
- Crossmember bushings
- OEM Sti struts and springs
Lots more that is not relevant.
Built and tuned the car myself...and it is daily driven about 100 miles to work.
There are a lot of other folks that would benefit more from these more, and probably give a better review, but I thought I would post anyway
