I will be using the original engine sub-frame mountings in the frame but the sub-frame will be custom along with a Torsen LSD in a custom carrier.

Have you had much experience with Torson diffs? We were going to use one on our race car and after a bit of research looking at other peoples cars using them, we found out they leaked like fuck and cost a fortune.

They do a special one for Formula Student cars which made me think they did an RGB car one too. The FS one sucked balls...
