Project 42: Trans Mount Reinforcement

The factory Mercedes transmission mounts are hollow and allow a LOT of flex in the drivetrain. On 5 speed cars, this gives way to a lot of sloppy shifting and overall terrible driving experience. One way to remedy that is to fill the hollow spots with a polyurethane. It reinforces the rubber for a greater driving experience. Great and relatively cheap mod at around $15 - if you can find it, 3M Window Weld is a good urethane to use.

I'll be drifting the car and taking it to the track often, so having a solid but comfortable drivetrain is key.
