    What about the motor mounts and the rear diff. bushing, those new as well?

    Yes revshift street motor mounts were put in as well, but I was told heat shields were not neccessary so they are probably toast next to my Kooks. I haven't had a chance to get under the car and check yet. Carrier bushing was replaced maybe a year ago.

    How was your carrier bushing replaced, its all one piece in the drive shaft I thought.

    Re: Revshift Trans Mount Insert ?

    Update:

    I swapped my stock mount with insert, out for the creative steel mount. (been in for a few weeks now; wanted to thoroughly test it before giving the update)

    Gotta say I think it is the best of both worlds. I didn't like how the revshift insert made 1st and reverse feel better at the expense of a notchier 2nd and 4th.

    Even after letting the insert "settle in" for a while (months) I like the sound with the creative steel better. I still hear the growl of the engine under load through it, but not so much droan as before.

    Shifter feels nice and solid, and all my gears feel equally easy to move to.


    The insert is not a bad product by revshift, I just favor this new mount more.

    Yeah, I'd like to see a full mount option from Revshift to compete with Creative Steel in this area.

    I think I'm gonna give the CS transmount a try. I currently have the RS insert in there and had to reverse the spherical cup in the base of the shifter to get it into reverse. Wasn't a problem until I reassembled my car. I use the Katech shifter.

    for clarification, is your cup now upside down or in the original position?

    I'm not sure what Philistine means. I've had the cup in both orientations in the last couple of weeks, and the transmission shifted the same way both times. The problem with reversing the cup orientation is that 2nd, 4th, and 6th leave the shifter jammed up against the lip of the box. And you'll never be able to run an aftermarket driveshaft, since you have almost no clearance. As far as I know, there's no advantage to messing with the stock orientation.

    Flipped it upside down. Wasn't a problem till I reassembled all my new parts and could not get it into reverse after a marathon session of bleeding the clutch.

    Alright, you got it. I've been putting it off for long enough. I already have it designed. I guess its time to make a real life part. There will be no competition.

    Do you want a better toe rod option while we are at it?

    I'm excited about the transmission mount. The rubber on my stock mount is starting to peel away from the metal. But the Revshift insert looks new. Any chance it'll be height adjustable (e.g. screw drive) or provide better lateral support? Also, what's the chance that you could mold some 80A exhaust hangars? The OEM rubber ones are very soft and can crack and decay.

    As far as toe rods go, I think you'd have to come in with a product that's lighter, stiffer, cheaper, easier to adjust, or some combination thereof (versus BMR or Creative Steel). On the front end of the car, there's more room for improvement--we don't have light/stiff tie rods, and we have one of the world's heaviest spindles. That spindle could be swapped out (see thread) for the V2 spindles, if only we had compatible sway bars or end links. If there's anything you can do about any of that, I think you'll have some excited customers.

    I'm also looking for someone to do some plastic/carbon fiber molding of underbody panels. Do you know anyone who might be capable and interested in that?

    How about a 80a guibo joint? One that can be a solution for the majority of misaligned drivetrains....

    Absolutely agree. I have the Revshift billet coupler, and cannot run above 21 mph with it (the driveshaft carrier bearing vibrates in a truly horrifying way), despite doing all of the other bushing modifications, and following the instructions to the "T". In my opinion, the OEM drivetrain geometry makes it impossible. I'm saving the coupler though--should be able to use it when I get the G-Force 9" IRS.

    Now that would be awesome and worth every penny!

    I wont say specifics right now but you will be happy with it.

    There is an 80A full poly indestructible guibo in the works. We are waiting on patents. Yes, its that serious.
