Thread: G-R billet C2 engine mounts.....

  1. #1

    Default G-R billet C2 engine mounts.....

    Right guys after a few people have asked, we're going to develop our own set of aftermarket mounts for the C2. As GMC seem to be holding people to ransom knowing they are the only supplier on the market.

    I'm considering making 2 bush strengths available, as the gmc's were always a compromise. Will be in a fast road or motorsport bush strength, depending on what people want.
    Can we get a list of anyone interested in a set of these going, just so I have an idea of quantities for the first full run.
    Just as a heads up, while we won't be asking for full payment prior to machining, we will ask for a deposit to stop people backing out after we've shelled out for cnc work.

    Any idea on a rough cost per set?

    I will be getting them priced up in the next week or so, but expect somewhere in the region of 325-350. possibly a little higher for the hard bushed set.

    Unfortunately no, gearbox mount would fit, but drivers side mount is a different design on the block side.

    Yes I'd be interested. Excuse me if I'm being dim but isn't that the same price range as the GMC?

    No he sold his last batch at 372 plus postage, a new batch if 5 people ordered at once is 400 minimum. If less than 5 order could be over 450! So these ones senior can produce are a much better price.

    I need to price the cnc work, unless you guys would prefer a cast version which would be cheaper, although they would need loads of pre orders.

    No doubt be better fit and quality than GMC if Senior is the man behind it also. Plus for the money you pay for the GMC's they still had to be trimmed on mine to stop knocking.

    Based on the responses already, it looks like getting 5 interested buyers is easily achieveable. Can you advise please Senior what timescales we realistically would be looking at before available? Thanks.

    I am also seeing Mick at MH Motorsport early next week about other C2 stuff, and he is a builder of C2 rally cars and uses GMC ones so may also be interested in some. As maybe Andy Gwynne who is starting the C2 Challenge rally series. I will let you know.

    Sounds good, it's good that people starting to make c2 parts all build them not just making parts for profit

    Just an update on this, a set mounts are now at machine shop for programming and pricing. So should be a matter of days before i can confirm the final price.
    They will have polyurathane bushes, instead of the gmc solid rubber, and be available in two grades.

    Also, are you making all three or just the two sides mounts?

    Default

    All 3 bud, and they will all be billet alloy. Not a migged mild steel torque mount.

    Default

    Right guys, price has come in at the higher end, so will be 360 for a set including delivery. Yes the price may be similar to gmc ( at least what they used to charge ), but these include proper polybushes and all 3 mounts will be billet cnc alloy.
    Can we get a list of people wanting to order so i can sort a batch being made..... as i said before a 50 deposit will be needed to prevent us paying for excess mounts being made.
