    He is a friend of mine, he gave it up because it was a pile of crap, blew so much smoke it wasn't even funny and yeah it sucked ass, so slow and old and had a big ole dent in the back. He wanted something newer and better and he got his car for an awesome deal.

    i never had any problem with the place racing mounts, anfd i was pushing a bit under 300hp with my b20-v boosted there not as stiff as the hasport but they work fine, alot of friends of mine break them but becasue they are not instaled properly and not tight.......so i was very happy with the mounts

    My place racing mounts were installed properly and completely tight and the back one broke in half. i really dont like the quality of place racing mounts. they r all skinny and welded. i want the hasport ones mass bad and i know i wont have ne problems. WEll i also had a racing clutch so every time i raced and shifted hard, it put all the pressure on those shitty mounts and finnaly it just broke in half. cracked my rear crossmember too, mass bad.
