Before getting an electric motor into the Mini, I needed to get a subframe that would fit both it and its associated transmission, etc. Don from MiniMania helped me source from MiniTec a VTEC B-series front subframe and two modified axles.
The subframe arrived mounted on a pallet with the parts in a box inside, and looked great!
Counting the axles, I sensed that something was missing...
However, that didn't seem like a big problem at the time, since I had lots of stuff to do still, before a missing axle would be an obstacle. Some emails were sent and I moved on.
More on this axle later.
