i put a strap on my engine to hold it down under a launch. Basically, ran a strap of steel almost horozontal bolted to two threaded holes on the front of my driver's cylinder head, then ran another strap pretty much straight down, to a chain link, one that has a locking ring, sort of like a climber's carabiner, got it a hardware shop, that goes thru a right angle steel bolted to the frame, there is just a tiny bit of give in it, but it allows my engine to vibrate at idle, but holds it down under acceleration. Cost me about $5.
