Does my rear end look big in this?

The standard Mazda MX5 NC rear end is a well designed five link, independent unit mounted in its own subframe.  As the Mazda engineers went to a lot of trouble to design and develop a state of the art independent rear suspension I saw no need to try to out think them and build a whole new rear assembly for the Locost clubman. 

After a bit of planning and fabrication the complete Mazda MX5 NC rear subframe was integrated into the Locost clubman chassis and the finished assembly can be easily unbolted and dropped out of the Locost, just as it did in the MX5.
