Finally got round to ordering my tube and now it has arrived I will be making a start on that. An oil can has been machined for the diff so just the bearings and carriers to sort then a sprocket and that's complete. Will upload some photos when I start on the cage.

Any progress on this build, i'm contemplating starting a busa build next year in a clubman estate with a home made subframe. Any updates regarding frame and diff would be great!

Avon CR6ZZ in 165/70r10 are a road legal moulded slick. Much superior to the AO-32r Yoko & highly recommended. They would work a treat with a Busa setup. I run these tyres on my R1 mini with KAD 4pot calipers & braking performance is superb. No fade on track & great decel. However, this on a mini weighing around half a ton. As long as you are near or lighter than this it would be a very good setup IMHO.
Keep it on 10s Good luck with the build!

Unfortunately not much progress to report. Had a super busy end to the year in 2015 and only now getting round to looking at the mini again. Still 100% committed to getting it finished just struggling with time. And I hit a brick wall trying to bend the tube, my tube bender just kinks the tube, tried loads to get round it but to no avail. Now looking into getting the tube made up, only downfall being if its not quite right its going to be a lot of hassle sending it back to be tweaked and could be even more expensive. Cannot find anywhere local that has a mandrel tube bender and struggling to convince my boss to buy one!
