This really boggles my mind because I used quite a bit of vibration reducing materials when I BUILT IT .

It doesn't really vibrate too much but still I'm shaking like a 2 dollar crack whore when I stop from a long jaunt . I wonder if the tires could be causing it.

Rubber mounting actually increases vibration, It leaves a little wiggle room for the engine to move. Try it without the "vibration reducing materials". Just make sure the engine is tight. I started getting that kind of buzzing in my (blank, blank,) parts, snugged the engine, no more vibes. I used to build with rubber mounting, It doesn't really work.
