    I'm looking to replace the front iso rubber pucks. Have a urathane one and an aluminum one. I'll be fabbing a pair for my next race car project. Can I assume that the puck is just a filler? Can I fab a pair fron delrin or aluminum, depending on what is the lightest, and drill some additional holes to loose a few more ounces? I've already replaced the 5 mph impact systems and fabricating a much lighter front bumper. I'm very weight conscious.

    They were intended to isolate vibration and noise. Aluminum mounts are a common upgrade. they are really just a spacer

    If you are using the aluminum pucks to stiffen the chassis I can see it for a race car but i wonder how much weight it saves if you use aluminum vs urethane? I can`t believe it would be a lot. May be easier for you to save weight elsewhere.
