Transmission mounts in a VW or VW based dune buggy or sand rail pull double duty. They mount the transmission to the chassis and then support the transmission and engine. The stock rubber mounts are not typically durable enough for extended off road use. We recommend using the urethane mounts at the minimum for off road use.
If you are using stock rubber mounts we would highly recommend using a transmission strap or transmission support. The straps and supports can be used with the stock rubber or aftermarket urethane mounts. Some of the straps can be installed without removing the engine or transmission so they may be used for a quick fix for a broken mount.
For off road only dune buggys and off road rails, solid mounts are the preferred method for mounting the transmission. We offer solid transmission mounts for most all Type 1 applications. We even have Type 2 transmission to Type 1 chassis mounts and kits if you are swapping a Bus transmission into your Baja Bug.
