My engine (4 banger) is being supported on the frame with brackets and between them is rubber.
Because of heavily abuse on the racetrack [img]smile.gif[/img] the rubbers are torn due to wear so the everytime I shift, the engine realy tilts-over alot causing banging on the exhaust.
I wanted to replace the rubbers but couldn't find any so now there are PU bushings between the engine and the sub-frame. The engine can't move or absorb shocks, so when I start the car it resonates, when I drive the car everything is ok (and better response on throttle). The car is also driven (NOT racing!) daily on the road.
Can these PU bushings hurt the engine (drivetrain) because it can't absorb shocks alot?
