Thanks for the reply!!

Ok I looked it up and I attached the bulletins to address your launch shudder... It involves replacing the mount with different angles to get it set correctly.. Once you perform this it should resolves your issues..

Glad I could help and thank you for the positive rating,

Ok at this point you will need to recheck this.. If you replace the center mount with the correct one it will take care of your issues..
