    New Product Alert!! D3 Adjustable Billet Motor Mount

    Are these mouts so expensive because they come with a V2?

    Yet another reason why I ignore all of D3's products. Even if those things were platinum plated and engraved with my name on them, I'd still call them too expensive.

    I have so got to get on finishing the brackets to install the V2 mounts in our V1's...I could probably sell them for $1200.

    Re: New Product Alert!! D3 Adjustable Billet Motor Mount

    Thank you all for your feedback. We set out to provide a top of the line product without compromise. We designed this product from the ground up relying on our experience and real world results on the track. There are other options on the market that are available to you if this product offering is not suitable for your setup. Our customers grew tired of the other products on the market, studs pulling through, blistering the poly, poor fitment, breaking under heavy load, etc... As inexpensive as some of those options are, if you have to replace it multiple times at a cost, it is simply not worth the money paid. We were very happy with our testing results and our products addressed a need for our customers without the need to constantly replace.

    If there are any actual questions regarding the products, we would be more than happy to answer them.

    Thank you,

    Dr. Design

    God, people are ridiculous, they get all happy that revshift offers stuff cheap, then when they get a massive amount of orders and get behind people bitch that they are taking too long. Then they get mad when companies come out for solutions to problems like an 8.8 rear end or a 9.0, saying its too expensive. If you don't like it you can leave it alone. I'm sure there are people who will buy D3's stuff, I won't cuz I'm on a budget too tight for their stuff. But I'm not going to go talk shit about them when they do come up with stuff.

    We have a dead platform fellas. This is the second dead modern platform I have owned. And it sucks. When people offer items for it that some have stopped producing don't bitch about the product. That's a sure fire way to make sure our platform dies even faster in the aftermarket.

    By the way I'm not directing this at fuzzy or DMM in particular so don't take that the wrong way. It just seems like that is the general consensus when new products come out.

    I have seen their work in person at a track and it is top notch. And they run they hell out of their stuff. It may not be cheap but its fast as hell.

    Re: New Product Alert!! D3 Adjustable Billet Motor Mount

    Honestly, that's a picture if a V2.

    D3 has a habit of making an initial post that seems promising, only to then clarify that the product isn't even offered for the V1. Hence my snarky comment.

    Re: New Product Alert!! D3 Adjustable Billet Motor Mount

    ^Yeah, the problem is the majority of these posts are for V2s posted in the V1 forum. The only pics that ever appear are of that one V1 they built which I don't think even has a lot of the parts posted about (wheels, etc).

    Agreed. Crap on the vendors if their products don't work or they don't deliver as advertised.

    But if they're overpriced, so what? Don't buy it...

    Most of their stuff is compatible with the V1 with a certain amount of customization. That's always seems to be the case though. Granted some of their supercharger kits require the V2.

    Re: New Product Alert!! D3 Adjustable Billet Motor Mount

    Hello,

    Yes this product is built for the V1 application as well as the V2 application. We were able to engineer various components so that it was interchangeable in addition to help lowering the production cost by splitting it across two platforms.

    Unfortunately we couldn't get this news out before the comments started filtering in. We changed one of the processes and have been able to actually drive the CNC costs down significantly compared to all of our pre-production units. We expect the MSRP to drop by at least $100 from the current price, if not more. That news might be welcome to those that are actually interested in the product.

    On a side note. We understand you guys are passionate about the V. We share that exact same passion with you, if not even more so. We just happen to be on the manufacturing/building side of it. We took our passion to a level that would help build the market and the community and support it with quality products. There are other makes of vehicles that we could have turned to, but we remain focused on the Cadillac brand of vehicle. WE have been a long time supporter of these boards and have seen a lot of companies come and go. Take it for what its worth, over the last few years we have gauged interest in prototype products only to decide not to move it to production as a direct result of posted responses and how it effected the market place.

    Thank you,

    Dr. Design

    ^ Thank you! We welcome another good product. As more V1 guys go with big HP turbo setups, there will be a need for this kind of mount.

    No there isn't. You don't need a solid mount to control even a 1500 HP engine. There perfectly capable and well-made polyurethane and solid mounts available for the CTS-V at between one-third and one-fifth the price of these D3 mounts.

    D3 took the issue with the Creative Steel motor mounts and used it to justify their product's $700 asking price while ignoring Revshift and UMI's products. Whenever someone complains about their marketing practices, there's a good chance that they'll try to have that person banned from the forum. Ask me how I know.

    My advice is this: try to break Revshift or UMI mounts on a CTS-V1. If you can do it, I'll drop a couple of bucks in the mail to help you buy D3 mounts.
