    There was a distinct whine (especially during engine braking) with the Beatrush one we installed on my friends car.

    OK this is a odd question but how much should the factory Bleaah pitch stop, well ...stop? If I am idling in first and tap the throttle my car jerks back and forth like crazy, you can feel the motor rocking with head/neck. Feels like I need a hanz device. I would even settle for a stock piece right now

    It looks intact but the 'bushing' part in the middle is starting to crumble. I'm thinking torque solution or kart boy since nobody seems to have one here

    Oh that's why they look like there's nothing in there! Thanks sinister! Ya I don't want to go solid. Group n everything else and a aluminum/ bushed pitch stop. And after romping around the big city of bozeman...probably a clutch too. Cold car its not to bad but after some city stop n go it starts to shudder really bad compounding the engine pitch. Feels like hot spots on the flywheel and I have records showing its been turned twice already. Strange I'm less concerned about replacing a flywheel/clutch assembly than the ten minute pitch stop. I've been under cars to long I think!

    The problem with the Group-N mounts is that they have been shown to break down over time and end up being no stiffer than stock. I have solid billet aluminum mounts, but in my car NVH is not a concern. I wouldn't recommend them to most people though.

    Kool. The billet mounts are real lookers but I am a daily driver. Right now I'd be happy with new stock bushings and mounts! That said, the misses gave me a budget and it looks like I can get into the rest of the drive line as well. Up front looks like KB pitch and Group N tranny and motor mounts. I also am looking at the rear diff lockdown kit and TIC comphy diff bushings. Cheap parts and relatively easy installs. Let see...also white line gearbox bushings and steering rack bushings. Quite a list but if I'm gonna burn plastic and replace a clutch too might as well make a weekend out of it. Anything else under there I should be prioritizing instead? I'm on a bender to stop the drive line slop. The rack bushings I don't really need but hey...I might make a scca solo event once or twice this year!

    Sounds pretty good.. as far as drive line slop, one of the main contributers is the joint in the drive shaft. Unfortunately a one piece carbon fiber drive shaft from DSS is like $1000. The aluminum one is cheaper, but you have to hammer out the tunnel to make it fit since it is larger diameter than stock (3"). A good solution is a custom steel drive shaft. Strength wise it can be smaller diameter then AL, and if you have a decent shop in your area they should be able to make you one for less than $300.

    Just did the clunk killer installs yesterday. They really weren't as bad as it seemed. Time consuming, yes. But just follow TiC's instructions and you'll be good. I had really bad diff clunking going on and these bushings really cleaned about 90% of it up. On top of that, the response from the transmission when accelerating after shifting is insanely noticeable. Definitely well worth the money and time spend on them.
