No, it's there to dampen the oscillations of the flexy chassis.

There's no harm in running the non-cab mount. You'll actually tighten the car up some. But it will cause you to feel more cowl-shake, but it will be at a higher frequency. But the higher frequency means it's torsionally stiffer.

You're trading the perception of solidity for a little more rigidity. If you're looking for comfort, use the cab arrangement. For handling, then use the coupe/targa arrangement.
