Default motor mounts?

Should I consider buying a set. There cheap and if they really help, I'm all for it. I was lookin at the NRG mounts.

i would only replace them if their torn or somethin like that...they do add a bit of performance, mainly less wheel hop and better control of the power to the wheels. if their not torn, buy an engine damper, its cheaper, hell of a lot easier to install, and does the same thing. its also adjustable so u have a smoother ride for daily driving...just search "engine damper" on ebay..

ya inserts work well too. my friend got them for his car and he noticed less wheel hop and a lil better power control...it def. made the car shake alot tho, when it idols and driving just around normal theres a good amount of vibration throughout the car.

this is true. Big T, do you race at all, or just drive around town?

I should have specified. I was lookin at the dampers. At the moment it is a daily driver. But I just want to upgrade my car. As of yet I don't actually race. But I would like to know that I have a slight edge over the competition if I did.
