Default Engine mounts or gears problem?

I had 4.10 gears fitted a few months ago and I've just noticed the car is starting to judder when pulling away in first or reverse, gotta really feather the throttle and clutch to stop it. I'm guessing it's the engine or tranny mounts that are either loose or degraded, the car has only 15k miles on it. Anyone else had this problem?

Thanks,

I suppose it could be the clutch, when a clutch is bad though you can make it slip while in gear and under wide open throttle. I think it's mounts because I had an old triumph once that had a similar problem

Thanks,

Does this happen even when you start as slow and gentle(lowest rpms) that you possibly can? I wouldn't think the mounts would be a problem at super leisurely take offs.

At low rpms etc I can get it smooth again, just getting paranoid I think, the 4.10 gears may also be amplifying any natural shudder because of their higher torque/mechanical advantage. I guess I shouldn't expect BMW M3 type smoothness/sophistication from a Ford Mustang either lol
