I installed JBR’s Stage 2 rmm, I went with the 80 durometer bushing and i may have regretted it, I hope it breaks in and tones down a bit but it may be a tad to radical for me.

Just wait a week or so (given that you're driving every day). When I installed mine (no Stage2 though) I found the vibrations pretty harsh at first. Within a week they were as good as gone. I'm also on 80 durometer btw.

Hopefully the vibrations settle down some. It's been nearly a year since I installed JBR's 88 durometer RMM and it still vibrates just as crazy as the day I installed it.

If it hasn't settled after a year, I doubt it will ever.

Im pretty sure it will and I dont drive the car everyday, maybe once or twice a week so its not unbearable or anything in that sense. I had a CPE stage 2 rmm on my old 14' FoST and i dont remember it being this harsh, but it has been almost 5 years.

I meant the vibrations for STKev. I know mine are never going away, haha.

Yeah, I put roughly 17,000 miles a year on my ST and even with the harshness of the 88 durometer it isn't unbearable. It also makes it easier to live with when you know just how much of a difference a RMM makes, haha.

After driving around for the past year and suffering from nasty wheel hop everytime i wanted to drive "spirited", i will definitely live with the vibrations even if they only tone down a little, car feels way quicker, i guess it helps that all the power is being put to the ground now. lol

I figure mine adds 15hp LOL🤣

I used to rock an eco beast decal too. So it's hard to say how much hp I was putting down with that one. But lower windshield stickers are not for daily drivers 🙄. Learned the hard way they destroy wipers.
