Cool! I didn't realise the Honda transfer drive gear was the same ratio as the FD on the MX5! That's convenient!

Hi Nick,

That’s great work, I’m particularly interested in the chop down of the MX5/ Miaita rear subframe.

I am doing a RWD Electric conversion on a mini moke, and using an MX5 rear would be loads cheaper than a new custom sub frame from minitec whoever.

Do you think it would fit under the floor in a std mimi or would it make the car loads higher? I’m not bothered about larger wheels, I think they will look cool on a moke
