Time and track use. I don't recall how many years I had them.

Where they Ireland Engineering ones? They had a few bad batches where they would fall apart very fast. But they should still be considered a wear item.

I went Delrin for the motor, trans, shifter and trailing arm bushings. Urethane for the Subframe bushings for the S52 TI. it does shake at low RPMs but at 800rpm,its smooth enough. Need to swap out the diff bushing before the season. Will prolly do the same for my AutoX Z3.

Rubber is definitely more comfortable and is perfectly fine for the M44s. I suspect it would be fine for the S52 as well, since I set this up to be used as my track car, I renewed all with the firmer/solid bushings to get shifting and road feel solid.

Mhmm, I'll keep and eye on mine. I do know they had a bad batch/s and basically everyone's crumbled. As for OP I still say grab some E46 M3 stock trans mounts, and if you don't like when they're worn out snag the Rogue Engineering ones or go to poly if you want a more "solid" feel.

Rich - I can't imagine the delrin motor and trans mounts. Racecar!

Evan, it is a mixture of Parts I had laying around at the moment. Condor solid engine mounts, Gargastic solid tranny mounts, Powerflex Urethane rear subframe mounts, forgot Delrin trailing arm bushings, Delrin shifter bushings.

It is definitely a solid and precise ride along with a Bride bucket seat so I don’t get thrown around.

Rich, that’s gotta be one rigid chassis. Does it pull the front tires off the ground at track events?

Yup, first time out with it, i had the three wheel Calendar shot last year, banking right setting up for a hard left.

Debating if I go the same route with an AutoX Z3 I am setting up. If I do, I’ll try out solid Aluminum engine and tranny mounts after a bit of subframe reinforcement.
