If you are planning on using Miata front hubs in the front, why not just use Miata rear hubs in the rear? This is the most popular/common way to get an IRS setup on a Locost, and there are many builds doing it this way, which are also using the Miata rear differential, and sometimes even reusing the Miata rear lower and upper control arms.

Just to clarify, are you planning on building a conventional front engine Locost? The examples given above which use FWD struts in the rear of the car are typically for mid-engine applications, where the entire FWD drivetrain and strut suspension is moved to the rear.[/quote]

Yes, traditional front engine rwd using Gsxr 1100 engine and Westgarage MX5 chain conversion with modified 7 S2 chassis. Although i have thought about using Miata knuckles at all 4 corners seeing there are alloy units available that offer a 2” drop for a better CG as well as 1/2 the weight (almost)
