Hmmm...Engine or tranny mount maybe? Can you make it to it by really tromping on and off the throttle when stationary?

Wow, that sucks, sorry man. Be reassured we haven't seen any other failures like that recently, so it's more likely you just got a bad bearing from the factory and once fixed it should be right as rain instead of some systemic design flaw.
