over the next few weeks i am ordering all the steel so i can make up the space frame for it.
and i am using a std metro turbo diff that being heavily modified by me to take the bike sprocket etc.
i am aiming to get it done for the mini showdown in oct.
but i think with the time i have got space that could be a bit optomistic.
i can but try.

this looks like a very quick easy and cheap way of doing it but surely it must wear them out faster.
i have looked at the zcars diffs and they seem to be similar, they are a normal lsd just cased in and welded up with 2 main supporting bearings.
is this really all that is needed for a day to day car or would it be worthwhile me designing a diff that can be removed from the casing to be replaced when it goes pop.?

the trailing arm setup gets a lot of camber change through the bends, wheras the unequal double wishbone setup minimises the camber change and is also very compact.
i am using the std mini diff, driveshafts and front hubs, so should not be too complex to get the track, camber and tracking sorted/fully adjustable.
diff will be mounted dead center with the engine offset to the drivers side to align the sprocket.
only problem is the engine will have to be quite far forward to accomodate the wishbone setup so it will be mid mounted and close to the seats, which is no real major issue but does mean the chain will have to be slightly longer than i wanted, so i will have to make a tensioner setup to cope with that, i ahve been thinking about possible using a tensionner gear/wheel thats spring loaded as well as the adjustable engine mounts.
anyone got any ideas about the tensionner issue??

but i am concentrating on the back end more so at the moment. i will however be attaching the rollcage through the bulkhead to the the front of the front subframe to stiffen everything up more.

so i now have to rebuild that engine which leaves me with no money for the mini at the moment.
