Capricorn anti-vibration engine mount

Capricorn anti-vibration engine mount

Capricorn have introduced their new anti-vibration engine mount. Many hours of work and testing have led Capricorn to develop this new anti vibration system, specifically made for the brand new Lab C801. This patented system has been designed to work with any brand of engine available on the market and each engine will need a specific engine mount with a dedicated mass damper. The purpose of this device is to dampen the alternate movement of the piston with a specific counter balance weight. The calibrated weight, that is located in a cavity between two dampening materials, reduce the vibration made by the engine which is normally transferred to the engine mount and then to the chassis. No word on a release date.
