I am shocked that they haven't fixed the motor mount hole issue in two years. They certainly been aware of the problem long enough.

Thanks for the input guys! We've recently revised those mounts both for correct fit to the OEM thru-bolts and for improved clearance to the right side engine mount isolator bracket (there are 2 OEM variations, our mount now easily clears both). Just heard back today from one of the customers who received the revised mounts this week and everything fit 100% during his install.

I purchased a new 3.5" 7/16 grade 8 bolt and drilled out the rear mount so it fits fine now. I have not tried the right side isolator for fitment yet. Matt can I exchange mine?

Whelp, the driver side inner CV finally bit the dust this weekend. I'm putting 400 ftlbs at the wheel through this setup so I'm pretty pleased that it lasted almost 4 years with probably over 100 drag launches. These are the 500hp axles, not the 1000hp axles they offer. I'm glad it wasn't the transmission that blew.

Hat's off to MWR. I just ordered the inner cv joint from them for $140 so that's a pretty economical fix to boot.
