Default What kind of Motor Mounts

Wanting to get some input on a race only application. Possibly going to be a Ten5 car. 01 Formula with a 408 on nitrous. Turbo 350, or 400, or a power glide.
What are you guys running for motor and tranny mounts?
Thanks
Roger

Solid mounts and poly trans for now, probably go to a motor plate setup in the future.

It takes all the twist out of the driveline, most of these are track only cars and even if we did drive them on the street the added vibration wouldnt bother the kind of guy that driving that car on the street lol.
