I mentioned earlier that I had seen statements that people had had to wait a while for MMR to get their diff mounts to them so I thought I update and let everyone know that I sent the paypal just this morning (10am-ish) to them and have an e-mail from USPS with a tracking # saying they received the package at 3 pm. Pretty darn fast. I'm quite happy.

Are the MMRs polyurethane or UHMW like their motor mounts? I have poly diff mounts and wouldn't mind stepping up to a solid mount if it's available.

I don't know

The pic looks like they are UHMW - the material looks exactly the same as their motor mounts. I am assuming they are, but at $50 I would not be dissapointed if they showed up and were poly. If they are UHMW, awesome. I will let you know when I get them.
Curious, will UHMW present more vibration from the diff into the chassis or is it one of those things where theoretically yes but it really is not noticeable according to people who have them?

If there were a ***** in the passenger seat, UHMW would give your girlfriend a better orgasm than you've ever been able to.

Perfect. I've been looking for a way to convince her we should take my car instead of hers. Now about this attaching a ***** to the seat thing, got a write up? I'll just look the other way on the issue of yours being in the driver's seat.

But seriously, solid mounts ******* blow for a daily driver. My car was legitimately useable as a normal vehicle before the MMR motor mounts. It's now started down the slippery slope to full race car.

Well solid motor mounts... hell yea it's going to turn the chassis into the sybian. The differential mount, maybe not so bad, but **** if you already have the motor mounts in UHMW, it doesn't matter any more - get the solid diff mount and while you're at it, pick up Emilio's new tubular control arms when they come out w/ 95A urethane (just about the same as delrin). Solid bushings FTMFW.

MMR diff mounts arrived this morning. That makes a grand total of 48 hours from when I sent them paypal to arrival here, and that was the included free shipping. I'm impressed.

These are most deffinately absolutely UHMW.

Good to know. I'm going to be putting a Torsen back in my car at some point so I'll do the MMR mounts at the same time.

O rly? Seeing the trouble Logan went through with his rx7 diff to get the preload decent turned me off from the idea of going that route.. are you that unhappy with the rx7 diff as well?

EDITED

I went a little overboard on the newb. I apologize, it was WAY out of line.

Try searching, reading the stickies and FAQs.

seanfr85:


I went and checked out your profile...looks like you've already turbo'd your Miata and need a better rear end.

Next time put a little more effort into your post (and searching/reading for that matter), and you won't get **** on.

There are good write-ups on the common 1.8L Torsen swaps, as well as the clutch type RX7 into an open 1.8L housing.
