uh, sounds like you need practice more than anything. motor mount inserts won't help that much. just get out there and practice practice practice.

mmi don't make a better driver........

I have heard that the nismo ltb will reduce wheel hop. Which might be better then the mmi becuase you wont have the vibrations.

First time I ever went to the track I ran 15.3 with cat-back / cai / MMI / SS

I went one other time where it was around 95 degrees with 100% humidity.. the most the car would muster was a 15.4 @ 87.. I also had the stock catback back on.


I have i / h / e / mmi / ss / pulley now... sadly these contis are about to crap out on me completely.

did u run w/ that system in ur trunk? i ran a 15.5 stock w/ terrible 2.4 60'
try reving to 2k and feather the clutch out, it's hard to get right so next you need to invest in suspension or motor mounts it will help out a lot
where are u located? and whats ur elevation?
