    Hard to change gear at top of rev range. Worn engine mounts?

    Hi All,

    I have noticed this for a while but yesterday i was playing with a C63 AMG and i have noticed every time i am at the top of the rev range in every gear it is really hard to change gear, but once the revs drop a little it fly straight in.

    I have spoken to a few people and they have mentioned it might be my engine mounts are worn, but im unsure how i can tell if this is the case. I am running revo stage 2+ if that helps at all. I have had a look on revo website and they recommend upgrading the mounts but i dont want to spend £400 if that isnt the issue.

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    Jonse

    I don't know the answer to this but I was playing with a C63 AMG yesterday. Haha. How weird. He didn't have a chance though. It was raining and it was from a standing start. I still won though :D

    Must have been an AMG day yesterday.

    There was an AMG C63 in front of me as well yesterday and I'm sure he couldn't work out why he couldn't shake off the little Audi behind.

    He gave up pretty quickly but both of us were being sensible anyway.

    There wasn't much fun with mine, he just spun his wheels up in the rain. I left him for dead so ours was pretty sensible too. Haha

    The engine mount kits make a huge difference, in fact Steve who heads up the hardware side of Revo/SRG fitted a set to his personal own car last week and Wow!! seriously worlds apart. So much so that we've just put a kit together that can be purchased at a discounted rate. just wish we had a way of showing the difference, as everyone would be sold on them once tried!

    Revo Full Engine Mount Kit

    Available and in stock now

    Engine mount package includes:

    • Engine Mount
    • Transmission Mount
    • Pendulum Mount

    Revo engine mount kits are available for the following vehicles which have 2.0T transverse engine:

    • Audi A3 8P
    • Audi S3 8P
    • SEAT Leon Mk2
    • Skoda Octavia
    • VW Golf Mk5
    • VW Golf Mk6
    • VW Scirocco

    Revo engine mounts provide a great balance between sport ride and quality. The Revo mounts replace the factory mounts with an upgraded unit that reduces engine movement, which increases traction, improves throttle response and smooths shifting. It is a must have for increased horsepower builds.
