Hi Stevie and welcome, there are plenty of mx5 based builds around, so don't be afraid to ask questions , as we have all had problems and queries.
Are you starting from scratch and planning on building up the chassis? not sure from your post if you saw a chassis and bought it (sierra) if you have there are some differences around the diff cage with various options using the std diff complete with arms or by fitting a Talon diff case, all will become clear as mud..... but you will have fun getting there :)
Good luck with the build and don't forget we like pictures we do and plenty of them :)
oh and what classic are you finishing off, interested in that too
Welcome again, Gary
