    This first frame design was supporting the motor from underneath. I will do another version from supporting the motor from on top and see which one I like better.

      I would suggest to go top attachment - more force is applied this direction in terms of road waves, Also it is cleaner to service the car this way - you can disconnect and pullout the whole subframe with motor if needed.

      Another part to keep in mind is - where you are placing batteries - if you are using engine bay then having frame part between motor and battery pack to support both is a good idea.

      Also keep in mind acceleration and stopping force applied in parallel to the car, Tesla subframe is designed (as I see from the photo) to apply it to the frame in front, question where it would go in your design. Two options: straight (in terms of force spread) frame part or rods to the front main frame - same as accord/prelude have.

        I redesigned the frame. I received my batteries. Now I need to figure out where to put them.
