Alright, for a bit now I've noticed a distinct pop/clunk when rolling off in 1st, or rolling on/off the throttle aggressively. I'm thinking it's one of two things:

1: Loose motor mount, I have Manleys, which may be more prone to vibration induced loosening. I tried pushing the motor around physically in gear, and couldn't notice anything.

2: I have a S111 RTV brace with the inner heim joints. I know they have at least 5k street miles and a track day on them. Could these be popping around if sloppy?

I had a similar clunk. I fixed it by putting stop squeak between the caliper pistons and break pads. The pads were somehow shifting and causing a clunking noise.
