I have an '09 speed and have "enjoyed" the wheel hop everyone talks about. I have heard that the motor mounts seem to add noise to the cabin. I drive my car at least 1,200 miles a month and that would drive me bonkers.

I found these traction bars on eBay and wonder if anyone had any luck with them...

I have motor mounts. I dont notice the noise/vibration differance honestly. Very minimal.. I definitly notice my engine doesnt move around much anymore though, makes for much better shifting experience.. =}
The first maybe 500-1000 miles it was a bit 'rough', but the mounts 'settle'.

As for the traction bars, Ive heard good things w/ people whom have made custom ones. People have said eliminated almost all wheel hop- Might be worth the few hundread bucks.. I'm thinking of buying them soon..

These are a great set of traction bars made by Medieval. There is several reviews on this forum about them.
