Another world's first from Black Forest Industries, MQB / MK7 / A3 Torque Arm Insert / Dogbone is available for purchase now! This 3D modeled part is meticulously designed to exactly fill the voids on the stock dogbone / torque arm to limit engine movement and to ultimately put more power to the ground! These inserts are specific to the latest generation of vehicles and while they may look similar to other inserts out there, they are the only ones available to fit the brand new cars from VW / Audi.
With each torque arm kit, you will receive one polyurethane insert, one stamped stainless steel washer - not mild steel which will deflect. You will also receive a steel insert that is coated for corrosion resistance, as well as a heavy duty upgraded 10.9 replacement bolt to ensure everything holds together for years to come.

Under hard acceleration, the pendulum mount (commonly referred to as the "dogbone" or by VW as the "torque arm") acts to limit rotational movement of the engine - The factory bushings do a satisfactory job, while limiting vibrations, but only during sedate driving conditions. When pushed hard those bushings flex creating a vauge feeling in the engine and gearbox, and adding to the dreaded "wheel hop" phenomenon.
Our pendulum mount torque arm insert fills the voids in the stock rubber bushing, making what was a soft rubber bushing with voids into what behaves like a solid mount. With the insert installed, you will notice that throttle response will feel better and your shifts will feel more crisp and defined, especially on manual transmission cars.
Designed In-house, these mounts are made to be a more comfortable option while still offering significant performance over stock. Made from the highest quality (90a) durometer polyurethane. Each insert is pressure injection molded to insure a consistent hardness throughout the mount for long life even under hard driving condtions.
