It was realised in the early 1990's that there were some fast and expensive sports cars being built with fairly crude engine mountings and that little was available for the specialist car manufacturer when it came to a design and supply service for small numbers of engine mounting systems. Vibra-Technics Automotive was originally established to fill that gap. Subsequently racing and fast road saloon car mounts were developed for a variety of makes and this has grown the business to where we are offering over 75 specific products for high performance cars with another 18 general products which can be used in a variety of applications from ATV's to V8 engined kit cars.
Vibra-Technics Automotive technical staff have over 35 years experience in the design of Automotive powertrain and suspension mounting systems. This experience was gained working for a number of Multi-National Rubber Companies engaged in the design and manufacture of chassis components used by all the major Automobile Manufacturers.
Why Rubber ?
Vibra-Technics products are manufacturer primarily from natural rubber compounds and occasionally from blends of synthetic and natural rubber to give particular properties for specific applications. Extensive experience and testing in all kinds of environmental conditions by Automobile Manufacturers has shown that only natural rubber compounds give optimum performance and durability (which is why it is still universally used today by every car manufacturer). Where the rubber needs to be attached to metal components, this is achieved by chemically bonding the rubber to the metal during the molding process, using the latest chemical adhesive systems.
What Will Our Mounts Do For You ?
Our rubber-to-metal bonded products are designed specifically for high performance applications where a direct replacement for the standard mount is required along with a much higher level of engine control to cope with higher engine outputs and higher road inputs caused by fast driving. The Fast Road mounts give significant improvements in ride and handling without adversely affecting vibration isolation. The competition mounts also eliminate clearance problems with strut braces and exhaust systems, body panels etc. and improve handling whist still giving vibration isolation at high engine speeds. Competition mounts are not recommended for road use.
