The subframe will require some additions to mount the motor, inverter and cells. Niel Fraser of 0800 Certz advises:
- 3mm plate welded to the frame in the front corners and on the towers
- 38x2.5 wall tube or 38x38x3 RHS (Rectangular Hollow Section)
- Front batteries to have shear mounts
He also mentions Capital Instruments for speedometer adjustments
See http://simple-pages.homeunix.net/mini/Minizuki/subframe%20finished/slides/IMG_10061.html for a vtec motor in a mini subframe.
- 18 guage box
- 10mm flange
Need 1.5mm spacer to give flat walls for cell compression.
- rear C section 3mm steel
- 3mm, 25 wide 50 high angle iron base of the battery holder
