Default Beatrush Propeller Shaft mounts

has anyone used these or have them on their car currently. it sounds like a good idea in theory but wanted to see if they actually made a noticeable difference. they are the machined aluminum mounts that replace the stock rubber mounts, here's a picture for reference, courtesy of rallysportdirect.com

I don't think anyone has them. Unless they are cheap, it seems like a really silly mod to me.

I have used them in our race cars, for the $30ish dollars the cost they work pretty well.

They do transmit a lot of noise into the cabin.

Why won't these fit the 02/03 WRX? It says in the description that they only fit 04 and up.

Reviving an old thread after doing a little research (and yes, this thread was found using the search button ) but not finding much info on this mod. Can anyone shed some light on whether or not these are worthwhile and make any difference whatsoever in driveline movement? I know the driveline carrier bearing sits inside a rubber bushing and takes most of the shock from the driveline but I'm wondering if there's any improvement in on/off throttle response. I'm contemplating getting them since I've got all control arm bushings and rear diff/subframe bushings and lock bolts ordered and on the way from TiC. Just trying to tighten up some of that driveline/drivetrain slop. TIA

i have them and you cant tell at all that they're there. that doesnt mean they arent doing anything, you just cant feel them like other bushings/mounts.

Got it. Seems like most vehicles have the carrier bearing bracket bolted straight to the underside of the car without any sort of bushing anyways so I would imagine NVH isn't much different. Oh well... one more item I'll probably get to sooth the mod bug

I have them, easy install on a lift with a BFscrewdriver to get off the factory mounts. With the factory mounts there is up/down play in the driveshaft at that position, after beatrush's I couldn't move it down at all.

Probably placebo, but I felt WOT was smoother.

I'll post up after getting my ride back on the road. I don't have the Beatrush units....I got mine from www.Importimageracing.com. They have the same thing available.

Here's what makes no sense about this part. Get under the car and shake the driveshaft right where that joint is. It moves soooooo much inside that carrier bearing that those little things will do nothing. Even you make that little mount solid the entire driveshaft will still move an inch in either direction. It's all a placebo effect.

I used a few thick flat washers in place of the rubber bushings. I noticed no difference good, bad, noise or otherwise.

That's gangsta, but you get 95% of the use with -95% of the cost.

i think its just something to dump money into. i have them and all it takes away is the slight slop you have on the carrier bearing.

Clint and i talked about this a few years ago, The CNC lathe was sitting pretty for a little bit. We both figured out that its pretty much a useless bling part. So we didnt bother making any. Save your pennies for gas.

I have the torque solution shaft mounts. very subtle difference if at all, not so great bang for buck.

I agree on the driveshaft, I want one eventually.....I just wish we had more choices for driveshafts other than the aluminum dss and acpt cf one. Other than going to your local driveshaft shop.
