i wouldn't even entertain the thought of using urethane engine mounts, urethane has poor shock load resistance.its bad enough for some suspension bushes.they must use them in torqueless two litre pusbags coz bout the only thing they are good for is wank appeal & shearing in anything with enough torque to pull the skin off a rice pudding.

having said that, breaking them that often does say alot about your driving style.

well my old engine mount lasted for 120,00 ks and this one has only lasted just over 1000 ks. i have a choice of gettin a normal rubber one or the urathane one maybe i should choose the normal rubber one because last time i used the other type.
the guy at the counter told me to chain the engine mount down would that help or should i just drill and put a bolt in

also random question but i have an open wheeler and lately when i drop burnouts it spins to wheels and when i turn corners it sounds like i have a spool in the rear end???
