Does anyone have a clear answer on how the stage 1 vibrates compared to the vf mounts?
Quote, originally posted by vee arr six » I have stage 1's all the way around including the tranny mount. I would recomend replacing all the mounts at once because the stage 1's were too much for the 'heavy duty' rado mount causing it pop. Also, after the mounts were installed i noticed my motor sitting slightly higher than before, it actually would hit the underside of my hood when i would start to slam gears causing it to dent. After i installed the stage 1 tranny mount about 3 weeks ago i noticed that my tranny sounded like it was whinning, but apparently thats normal if you put a solid tranny mount on a VR. I love the way my VR drives now, it feels very solid, and as my friends say 'feels like a go-cart' cause of the mild vibration.
just drove mine for like 4 hours. (stage1 all around+tranny) feels awesome. not too much vibration, theres a verycool hard engagement of the starter, i can feel it with my with my butt. nice quick response and gear banging gives me whilash.
VF's are a complete redesign and replacement mount, our are inserts designed to work in the same manner as the stock mounts and using the same brackets.
As far as firmness our Stage.5 & 1 are softer than the VF. Our Stage 2 is harder

just installed stage 2, well just droe it for the first time, yes vibration, the front windows are rattling a bit but its a 16 year old car so its expected.... started loosing traction in 2nd and shifting seems alot firmer. great product!
Do u currently have any in stock? When I ordered my Stage2 Complete Kitseveral months back u guys were out of the Poly tranny mounts.

You didn't post a price for just the Stage2 tranny.

i really want a new set of mounts but im not sure which ones to get the stage 1's or .5's?? i will be commuting back and forth to college come fall(about 40 miles one way trip) my engine shifts way too much for my liking!!! which ones should i go with. i use to skateboard and i know the difference between 60A and 85A which seems pretty hard. I can stand the vibrations just not may car shaking apart on me. its the VR6 OBDII with exhaust and intake. what do you suggest???
is the .5's still a substantional amount of engine movement??? Ive heard that the satge ones dont really vibrate too bad. this car has got to last me through college so i really dont want to mess anything up i just can stand barely letting of the gas and then barely pushing down on it, having my engine slam back and forth. and when i step on the gas i dont want any hesitation from engine movement.
Anyone have any feedback on the stage 1's
maybe would i be better off mixing and matching the .5's and stage ones???
i appreciate the info so far!!!
