    I bought my place racing motor mounts back in april of this year for my 88 civic hatchback. i put a 92 ls motor in it. THe motor is stock, not to powerful, and on my back motor mount, the weld broke between the mounting part and the actual mount circle part. I couldnt believe my eyes when i noticed it. I noticed that the shifter started moving way to much in between gears. I finally got my lazy ass down there and noticed that it was broken. I have never heard of this happening before, but i would be careful about what you buy, if it was me again, i would go with the hasport mounts. i wish i did.


    I really hope that place racing can do something about this for me like replace the mount because this blows and im afraid of what can happen if i keep driving it...

    Whoa man that sucks. I hate it when that happens but oh well, that's cool that they will be giving you a new one right after you send the faulty one in. Good company relations. :D

    IMO they should send you one and let you send the busted one back. It just doesnt make sense for them to warranty a product and it will cause you down time. HASport all the way :) :worthy:

    i got some mounts that are very similar to the place racing mounts...my mounts could even be place racing...i got them brand new from a guy for $200...he said a shop makes them and he sells for them...if you ask me they are pretty damn good...motor sits in there real nice and straight...only problem is that the motor sits closer to the crossmember and i had to bang the lip on it in so i could fit a header in there...i have no room for turbo unless i get the drag manifold...but the drag one looks kinda gay...but it's all good...turbo is turbo right

    my motor sits in there fine, but i did have to cut the mount bracket on the crossmember to make it fit in there. the tranny was resting on the bracket so i cut it. :ph34r:

    Chet had a great story that illustrated the "quality" of these mounts a while back. He was helping a friend install an H22 into a hatch.

    I think your best bet is to buy some HASport mounts, get the Place Racing Warranteed and then sell them.
