    I'll probably have to redo the rear shock mounts. This whole thing is going to be installed in conjunction with the cage, so the body will basically just be the body at that point.

      1999 Miata rear track width - 1430mm
      1991 BMW E30 rear track width - 1424mm

      Pretty darn close...

      I am interested on how you tie this all in to the new cage / chassis. Sounds like the rear of the car will become a tube frame. :)

        maybe you plan to remove a bunch of overkill mazda designed into the structure while mating it up to the e30?

          The actual miata rear subframe is AWESOME. It will be cake to connect to the back of the e30. The diff/driveshaft is what I'm worried about.

          I would not say the miata chassis is particularly overbuilt.

            vertically, i imagine there to be an issue... bmw framework being a little low for example.

              BMW framework will be mostly gone.

                  That cars a honey but the url you pisted was a disappointment - why? cos i thought you'd already found an e30 with a miata arse end...

                  all we need is some italian stuff in the car and it will be the whole WWII axis:hitler:

                    it may just be easier to fabyour own subframe ratherthan fab the car to fit around an existing subframe. I would love to see this project completed.

                    please keep us updated. Also i would love to see some ohlins in the stock rear shock location mounted to a double wishbone. this reduce unsprung weight dramatically as well as giving much better camber gain and toe control as well as adjustability.

                    as far as a front suspension goes... i dont think you can get much better than this

                        Went nowhere. Ended up selling the car for scrap.

                        I'm doing an e36 track car now, since it comes from the factory with a non-stoneage rear suspension. :)
