Ever have a crazy feeling something not right with you car but dont check it out till it breaks??? :lol: Three times i had that feeling weeks before a motor mount would break but was too lazy to check it out and kept pushin on the car till it gave, hell i knew there was a broken mount once and kept launching and it broke an axle, then drove without that axle which screwed up a wheel bearing, tryin to fix the wheel wheel bearing caused my wreak that damn near totalled my car :? Well lately if i was pullin hard in 2nd or 3rd and push in the clutch and not pull hard into the next gear, like go to neutral to coast, it just didnt seem right, wierd feeling, but just thought it was the three puck talking, well since i was thinkin about goin to hpt tommorrow and that rally saturday to double check all the motor mounts and tranny mount bolts and just see whats what, i found this!!!!!!

Are you sure it worked itself loose? You probably broke it! :roll: :lol:

Good catch, though.

Wow, good find. I have that feeling also right now with my 07. Everytime I pull out from a dead stop I hear a metal clunk, almost like a pulling sound. I havent been able to find it yet. Sorry to thread jack, but I kind of know where you are coming from.

You need to have those things replaced with titanium and then Gorilla Glued in place.

oh yeah i test the limites daily, motor even seen a few mishap of well over 9k rpms and still kicking, and if any dont believe you can override the rev limitter and rev to 9k, downshift to 2nd at 80mph and watch that needle blur deep into the red :lol:
