    Not the end of story. Still need to know what holds the mount together in the event the 'glue' lets go.

    Re: @#$^!* UUC Transmission Mount

    There really isn't a giant marketplace out there for the V1 and their numbers dwindle every day as they are flipped and wrapped around trees.
    Even fewer people that have them even know what kinds of mods are available.
    UUC's products offer improvements over factory components but have proven not to be flawless and as with any new-ish product there are issues to be worked out.

    From what I understand the UUC trans mount issue being discussed here is an installation issue, as the nuts were being tightened the stud started to spin.
    If the mount is already installed there is no need to take it out and weld anything, it seems a matter of getting it installed. From what I know UUC is fixing the issue.
    The original mount problem that so many people worried about affected only a few people and the ones that I updated from the original to the yellow were in perfect condition, one set was in a supercharged car.
    AFAIK the UUC does not use any kind of fail safe or what I think I see being referred to here as a "positive stop".
    I can't speak for the other product mentioned here as I know precious little about it other than it is an alternative, and from what I have seen posted, not without issues of it's own. The manufacturer seems to stand behind it's product there as well.

    If the "glue lets go" then the mount lets go, pretty simple. That is a pretty big IF and it is also what happens when you do mods.
    Granted the factory mounts have some issues, but they do have stops in them if they fail. Re-engineering stuff isn't cheap or easy.
    We stand behind what we sell and so far UUC is standing behind what they give us to sell.
    I'd consider this a "work in progress" and report issues as you find them so Luke can address these issues with UUC.

    Nobody promised perfection but we do our best to provide customer service.
    Not sure what UUC's deal is but I know Luke is working with them to address issues as they come up.
