Tonight after I found out that I was given the wrong brake pads and cooled down a bit I replaced the stock motor mount. Very easy to do. As you can see in the pics there is a tear in the motor mount. Hmmm no wonder I was getting horrible wheel hop.
I put in a TRZ Derlin mount. Wholly s*** the car has vibes like my 1982 Ford F100.
Now I can say that it grips much better, I am on the right track, my tire and wheel weight is *** Ooops I could not do proper math. 41lbs on 235/45 -17 But I will be fully bolted soon.

Hey David don't you need someone to try your ETD??

I'm just wondering how the heck you managed that? Us miata guys can even make that with 15's and my 15's weighs 9.5lbs

Sorry updated the weight, I had my head up my ass I have been in manual gunnery class and all the damn numbers have my head fried.
