I thought I’d make myself useful in some way shape or form this morning so I decided to clean the diff up in thinking of spraying it black once it’s dried off annoyingly I can’t get into the small areas! I’ll have another go before I spray it but here it is at the moment

Not much done really today, managed to get the diff painted and mounted into the subframe no doubt I’ll need to move it back when all the other parts are mounted into the frame as well.


Started looking for the mx5 flanges but started to struggle as I could seem to find what I was looking for! I wanted to try and find some alloy ones or lightweight ones but after a few searches I couldn’t seem to find them any ideas guys?

Right so little update as I haven’t updated in a while! I’m still moving a long with the project just at a slower pace then anticipated due to a number of things. The rear subframe is almost near completion, rear driveshafts have been ordered and are currently being made, all the rear hubs are built up and have been added to the frame also, brake discs have been ordered as well I’ve gone for 231mm grooved and drilled, just deciding on which calipers to go for!

Looking for some information if anyone can help with what engine mounts to use on the front frame of anyone can help it’d be great! The engine is a b18c4 and it’s the new all speed frame, hope this helps
Alex

Can anyone help with engine mounts for the front allspeed subframe Iím starting to build it up now understandably I know that I will need to modify the subframe for the gearbox because of the 4wd set up but I am wondering which engine mounts to use! I am looking for uprated ones can anyone help with that?

It’s been real slow due to training away from home! The frame is virtually complete just need to fit the custom shafts and buy the brake calipers and calliper mounts but I am still unsure on which ones to get.
I am currently looking into the front frame and where to go with that. I have purchased the lower arms for the frame and will be buying Kads 6 pot big brake kit, hubs and flanges and maybe their hi los still looking into them but my biggest concern is the engine mounts and which ones to buy ��

This I will look into when I get to really 🙈 but I believe that it will either be a sidewinder manifold or a top mount due to space really....

So I placed an order to day Kad 6 pot big brake kit, kad alloy flanges and kad alloy front hubs 😄 big spend I know but hopefully itíll be worth it!

Iím looking into the top arms I want something other then standard I was looking at force racingís titanium ones but I canít seem to find any pictures of them fitted to a frame or would you guys recommend another company?

But more of an update, I received my delivery from Kad on Friday, I have got to say it felt like Christmas came early when I started opening the box ;D but as they say pictures speak a thousand words!



The 6 pot big brake kit
The kit is amazing I must say the quality is second to none!




A comparison to my rear brake discs 231mm rears 265mm front


Callipers


A comparison with them next to a tv remote


Hubs and flanges - these are so good in person again, you really wouldn’t believe the weight of them




So I have ordered the force racing titanium top arms which should hopefully come this week and I have also ordered a set of engine mounts but I’m waiting on them so they could be a month or so unfortunately so that means I can’t do the modifications to the frame yet.
Next month I’ll hopefully be ordering the Kad hilos and red/yellow doughnuts need to check which ones I will need.
Can anyone tell me about quantum shocks?

Regards Alex

Very nice bit of kit there. I'd really like the KAD hubs but a little gutted they can't use the 7.5 disc flanges.

Have you tried ringing them up and asking if they are able to make some for the 7.5 disc flanges? They were helpful with all of my questions and queries so they may be able to sort something out?

Hasport or Innovative engine mounts are both good.
I've gone with the softest (60A) Innovative mounts, and I'm very impressed - much more supportive than standard, but very little extra vibration. Fit perfectly too !!
