Mounting brackets

Mounting brackets

The two brackets still allow the diff to move.  Owners of other Locosts that use the earlier MX5 diff informed me that this mounting point is critical.  It's under a lot of stress and some builders have actually broken the diff housing.  Hopefully my solution for mounting the front of the diff is strong and flexible enough to withstand the punishment of spirited driving.  Only time will tell.
