VWR Uprated Lower Engine Mount and Torque Link

To harness your power increases, and transfer that power to the road or track where you need it, RacingLine’s VWR Uprated Lower Engine Mount will give a much more solid drive, and crucially give additional durability to your car.    

The VWR Uprated Lower Engine Mount is a CNC-machined, fully engineered replacement unit and torque arm link to replace the soft, standard rubber mount.  This mount significantly decreases engine and transmission movement, ensuring clean transfer of power to the road.  

By banishing the soft rubber movement in the standard mount, the difference is noticeable the first time you pull away after fitment, and on every aggressive gearchange after that (whether manual or DSG).   The risk of wheel-hop under hard acceleration is greatly reduced as the whole engine and 'box assembly is prevented from juddering when wheelspin occurs.

VWR UPRATED LOWER ENGINE MOUNT AND TORQUE LINK

KEY TECH SPECS

ADDED STRENGTH

Essential upgrade for modified cars to keep the drivetrain properly located.

TRANSFORM THE DRIVE

Transform the feeling of your car, through eliminating wheel-hop off the line and through aggressive gear changes.

HIGH QUALITY

CNC machined in the UK, highest quality materials and construction, including a full replacement lower mount (not an insert) and replacement Torque Arm.

EXTENSIVE DEVELOPMENT

Painstaking development of the durometer (stiffness) rating of the polymer used, meaning less compromise on NVH.

RACE PROVEN

Developed and proven on race cars – then carefully refined for road.

UPGRADEABLE

The upper mounts can be added at any time to supplement this Lower Engine mount to provide the full upgrade kit.

PERFORMANCE /// DEVELOPMENT

performance

///  For those in the know, the Uprated Lower Engine Mount is truly one of the most worthwhile upgrades for anyone who appreciates the driving dynamics of their car.

///  The Uprated Lower Engine Mount stiffens the whole location of the drivetrain greatly to give a much tighter, sharper feeling to your car. It removes that loose feeling when coming on and off-throttle, and all but eradicates the chance of wheel-hop under hard acceleration as the whole engine and 'box assembly judders violently.

///  As you can imagine, this adds strength to the drivetrain, helping to protect from future wear and breakages. Rather than some aftermarket 'push in' bushes which crudely fill the voids in the original factory mounts, the VWR unit is a completely redesigned replacement mount assembly and torque link.

///  Of course, a bit more noise from the drivetrain comes into the cabin, but most keen drivers love the sense that they are more 'connected' to their car.

///  For most road cars, we’d recommend fitting the Lower Subframe Mount on its own, leaving the two upper mounts standard. The VWR Uprated Upper Engine Mounts can then be fitted at any point in the future as a further upgrade.

DEVELOPMENT

///  This MQB Lower Mount includes a billet aluminium Torque Link (often known as the dog bone link). Our testing showed that the pressed steel part used on the MQB-platform cars lack the stiffness needed for an uprated or hard-driven car.

///  The added stiffness of the Torque Link has then allowed us to reduce the durometer (stiffness) rating of the polymer used, meaning less compromise on NVH.

///  The mount and torque link starts life a billet of T6000 Ali which is fully CNC machined into the finished piece before our unique polymer mixes are moulded in to to give the strength, stiffness and durability that we require.

 ///   All our mounts are designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK.

DEVELOPMENT NOTE

///  Suitable for manual and DSG gearbox cars. 

///  Not recommended for TDI Road cars as cabin vibration becomes quite significant.  However, these are perfectly suited to TDI motorsport cars.  

///  Not applicable for cars with aluminium subframes - only the pressed steel versions.
