      What about nissan gtir? reasonably narrow, has an r180 which is f series size or upgrade to R200.
      Same setup as a subaru wrx. two transverse links and a trailing arm forward. Would be pretty straight forward to fit, I have a friend with one in a starlet rally car, packages nicely with flares

        Worth considering for sure. Only issue for me would finding one I think. Not a common car at all here in Tas...

          I think the problem with re-drilling to a bigger PCD is that there won't be enough material to support the stud. Looking at the pictures online, moving each stud ~7mm out would put it real close to breaking through.

          Could you run spacers to convert the stud pattern?

            Yeah fuck you are right.

            Just had a quick Google. Seems rx8 rear hubs are identical but 5x114.3
            Would have the right diameter but would have the reinforcements on the back in the wrong place...


            Spacers I really don't want to run. I don't want the rear track any wider than it is currently. Already it's near 3 inchs a side wider...

            So to compensate I would have to pull and extra 40mm out of the centre for a total of 140mm (doable) to accommodate some spacers thick enoub to run pcd changes lol.

            Hmmmmmm still drawing board...

            Thanks for al the advice and criticisms guys

                Thinking back to your hub problem.

                It may be entirely possible that some other hub could fit. Mazda was/is a lot like Nissan at the level of interchangeability - just fewer people know about it all.

                Pretty sure early (like 1983) FWD 626 and FWD 323 were 4x114.3 - although some where in Mazda's history 4x110 was also used!

                The later 4x100 and 5x114.3 setups can be swapped into place of the 4x114.3 I think (at least some vague memory exists about it)...

                Could be worth a wrecker crawl - get a 4x100 323 (89+) hub and an early 626 hub and compare.

                You may be able to bastardise CVs etc to make shafts work as well...

                  Looked into e36 bmw rear ends? They are reasonably compact, easy to mod for different bmw diffs, wide variety of ratios, lsds easy to get and come with good brakes from factory.
                  Can pick up a whole car for under $500 these days on the main land.

                  And i mean coupe/sedan rear.. not hatchback (they are e30 style)

                    Have not considered this at all. But very good suggestion. I'll have a look later.

                    Currently I'm stoned out of my fucking mind trying to deal with being stabbed at the hospital lol.

                    How would modifying bolt patterns go ? And shrinking the housing for smaller track ?

                    Thanks for th continued advice lads.

                    I'm committed. The car will go

                      On the rotisserie. Later this week if all goes well. I'll spend the time between now and fitting the cradle doing stitch welding of the whole car to give her a bit of a birthday.

                      I've got a basic plan for how to modify the cradle to minimise cutting of the floor and chasis.


                      I did have a question for those playing at home. If one was to remake the cradle in tube, how thick would the tube be ?

                      I'm thinking 38mm 1.6mm. I know this is thin. Roll cage tubing is usually 2.4. But I figure roll cage is designed to be structurally significant AND add safety from ingress in an accident. The cradle needs no added strength to compensate for sapplings.

                      So 38 x 1.6 mild - would this be simply too light a gauge for the loads of a suspension cradle ?

                        Look up what people are doing to run IRS in Clubbies too.

                        They generally use a combo of OEM and bespoke bits like arms and diff cradles

                          Yeah have seen a bunch of those guys stuff. Ranges from awesome to cringeworthy lol

                          Most seem keen on the mx5 rear end. And I think the mx5 would be great. But it's a lot of mixing and matching to sort the details

                            Also subscribed. I have a Mazda 1300 widebody that I plan to transplant an entire MX5 driveline and front setup into.

                            I think your MX-5 rear cradle idea is sound, I'd just get custom 4x114.3 hubs made. Surely someone in Tas could make you some (yes it would cost a fortune but then you'd get to run your cool wheels).

                              Yeah I hear you. But like a lot of things this is being done as a very cheap idea. Nissan stuff is redicukousky cheap.

                              And easy to find here. Mx5 is a lot more. And harder to find ...

                              I know it sound stupid but I simply don't have the money to spend. If I can save a hundred dollars lol that's like 6weeks of actual saving...

                                Yep, know the feeling. arse hanging out of pants with competing interests/hobbies.

                                I've been trying to find an 1.8 crashed MX5 for about two years, but I keep getting out manoeuvred by wreckers snapping them up.
