Also it just carries the mass of the motor, the torque mount prevents the rotating force.

I don't see the benefits of poly filling those 2 mounts tbh unless they have popped and to fill them is cheaper then replacement. But for performance I don't see benefit

Polony, I think the idea is that high power will rip the stock engine mounts.

I also have all poly filled mounts. Vibrations are only slighted more than stock.

If the torque mount is stiff enough then they will not move and therefore can't rip.

The torque mount controls the movement, those 2 mounts simple carry the weight of the motor
That's why you got barely any vibration from your poly mounts, cause they don't do anything but hold the motor up.

I have filled all the ST'S mounts.. and as Poling so rightly says is true.. the top mount and one under battery carry weight ..
I always ask the person if they want serious race bits or just something better than stock..
