As with most front wheel drive turbo platforms, the Mazda 3 suffers from excessive wheel-hop. This is a result of the soft factory motor and trans mounts allowing too much engine movement during aggressive driving. Stiffening up engine movement is the key the getting M 3 to hook up from a dead stop. The Weapon R engine damper kit for the 05-08 Mazda 3 works by bracing engine movement against the drivers side strut tower.
Reduced engine movement means less wheel-hop, quicker launches and significant improvements to 60′ and ET track times. Daily driving will be also be enhanced with a smoother, more connected feeling when rowing through the gears. The Weapon R Engine torque damper is also an excellent compliment to upgraded motor or transmission mounts.
