    I removed a whole bunch of posts, pissed you off, my apologies, did any of the posts that I removed actually help answer the OPs query, no they didn't and it was the Op that was more affected by the thread being taken off topic than those that wanted the chance to possibly get a dig in.

    Tbh if jamest5 is jumped on by all of us at some point and I can't seeing it stopping without banning of the top of my head:

    Me
    Claymore
    Jamest5r
    Nealevo
    Chriss70t5
    Oblark
    Mrp
    Leet5
    External error
    Nealevo

    Plus many many more, the only way to stop the hassle is too ban us or him (that isn't an ultimatum) but could we vote or such?

    From the outside this must look terrible to new members

    I know Ade but as the information had been removed the specific warning lost purpose.

    Looks like a childish ultimatum tbh

    Really not sure whether you are trying to bully management into a decision with that statement but it aint going to fly. People get banned because we deem it not because you had a vote on it!

    Any more to be said on bushes?

    It was more of a suggestion as it must look terrible to outsiders and new member, also it might stymie the decline of the forum in recent years by attracting new members.

    Outside of people posting pics of animal cruelty and posts of similar nature, how can a single post look worse than what you had just posted? It looks like "We don't like that kid in our class, he should be expelled".

    Did you ask those members who you listed, which I know many have their own mind and will if you could mention them?

    I won't pretend I like everyone on this forum, for different reasons which probably has greater basis I don't like James but people behave within the rules they can stay, those that don't can go.

    Sometimes I go back and question my previous decisions and based on that post you made I think I'm regretting one of those past decisions.

    Whatever you think the outcome will be, rather that then posts designed to intimidate action like that!

    If adding your experience to threads to balance debate is upsetting you that badly then its probably for the best

    Can't understand how a car can feel more stable with poly bushing the top mount, the engine doesn't flop around that much without it.

    My only polybush experience is my purple top engine mount, all it really does is put a bit more vibration through the bulkhead and is possibly going to last longer than the standard item, due to its solid design, if your not into the extra noise stick with the standard mounting bush, though you may find they need changing more often on a more powerful engine than standard. I am shortly going to manufacture my own lower suspension bushes and lower engine stabiliser bushes, these will increase vibrational noise a fair bit, but as they will be fitted to the olive T-5R that won't matter and if they are quiet enough, I will make some more for the Gul......

    When I bought the C70, the original top bush was shot, I replaced it with a Powerflex purple bush. I found no increase in either vibration, or car stability. I can understand what you're saying about increased vibration Ade, and I'm sure there are cars that suffer more than others (remember a C70 is stiffer to start with), but I can't see any way it could increase stability, unless it's the only bush holding the engine on.

    I get a lot more engine noise when I boot it over what it was like before I fitted the polybush, but in that car it's fine and that add's to the enjoyment of opening the throttle, some folk don't like it and have gone back to a standard rubber bush, so it's down to personal preference at the end of the day. As for stability, Chris did have a completely valid point regarding new standard rubber bushes being a massive improvement over shot ones and how new ones would compare to polybushes, but that all seems to have got lost, but it is still relevant imho

    Yes but the OP asked about the torque mount, not wishbone bushes.

    yep your quite right there, but in 40 posts (plus the deleted ones) no body here has posted up any info on the particular torque mount, so I'm assuming no one here has ever used one, look like they may cost a bit though
