I was out of Menzerna PO85RD. Sometimes you've got to just use what you've got. Have you considered a ceramic coating for longer lasting protection, topped by a wax?
The Megs lasts about 3 months with bi-weekly washes and being outside 24/7, so I’m happy with that.

Regreased Moog endings, installed Neuspeed pitch mount insert (no more wheel hop, but too much vibration at idle), mounted FK510s on my other set of RSE16s, retightened up rear subframe (shifted when I spun on 200tw tires) , got car aligned, then swapped on my FK510s. Reset VAQ adaption too.

So nice to be able to accelerate without wheel hop, but will likely find a different pitch mount insert that has less vibration.

I’m not familiar with Neuspeed, but BFI and others settle and and become much more livable after 500-1,000 miles.

Thanks, I'll give it some time then.

It's crazy that VW couldn't have found a better compromise with engine mounts. They aren't even adequate for the car stock.

Mine lasted 100,000 miles with much more power than stock. The track racing you do must have had much more impact than a stock car would endure.

The car has severe wheel hop with stock power and brand new engine mounts, so it's not a matter of wear, it's a matter of design.

Swapped in an Odyssey group 48 AGM battery when I started seeing signs of battery failure. OBDeleven made the battery adaptation easy. Use 11 and the date in DDMMYYYY format for the battery serial and you'll have a reminder when you last changed it. The actual number entered just needs to be different than the prior one.
