Default S2000 Mismatched mounts cause play?

I am on OEM engine and tranny mounts and Spoon diff mounts.

It feels like there is slack whilst accelerating or decelerating.

Will mismatched mounts cause this?

Are your OEM mounts old, or did you install new ones in?

I'm the opposite, have Spoon engine/trans mounts and old OEM diff mounts.

OEM is months older. Also installed this year.

Im thinking either upgrade the OEM to spoon or spoon back to OEM.

Argh

For the Spoon engine/trans, you'll get a little bit of NVH. Supposedly, they're 30% stiffer than OEM. I'd look into buying them from rhdjapan. yen to usd exchange rate make them competitively priced to OEM.

I'll have my diff Spoon mounts installed soon.

Yes! I'm a loyal customer of RHDJapan!

An acquaintance will swap his Mugen engine and tranny mounts for my OEM, his missus is complaining cos she drives it mostly.

Waiting for him to come back from holiday then test his ride and if all good, swap

I prefer the Spoon due to the added metal mount, I'm guessing both are about 30%.
But willing to give this a go still

Has the NVH from the Spoon increased significantly?
How does it drive?

Good luck with your Spoon diff mounts, update me once it's done and I will as well.

Thanks for the reply!

Love them so far! Throttle response and maybe even clutch feels better.

Initially, during cold start up NVH is very noticeable. After about a month they seemed have broken in. I found one bad vibration, but seems isolated, and can be fixed if I stop being lazy.

I don't know how people live with any other aftermarket mounts that are any stiffer as a street car.

Sounds awesome.
One bad vibration that can be fixed?
can you describe it please?

This is a personal preference.
All the way from OEM to hardcore solid mounts.

For myself, I have mellowed over the years.
Stripped out, stiff af suspension and urethane mounts to now something slightly stiffer than stock and compliant suspension.

In some years, probably only OEM.

I'm trying to locate it, but it sounds like something with where the soft top assembly or tray. A slight buzz at around 75mph.

Once I locate it, I'm sure I can get rid of it.

Other than that, they're great! OEM quality, fitment and slightly stiffer.

good luck with that.

I'm pretty excited to swap to the mugen motor and tranny mounts, hoping I'll be as chuffed as you

i wanted to put hasport diff mounts as my oem are torn.

but then my mechanic said that it is not a good thing to change only diff mounts to harder ones, because then engine and tranny mounts will suffer due to difference in hardness.
