    Why did he use an R34 sub-frame and rear end?

    They have to use a r34 rear subframe due to the fact the stock r35 transmission is essentially the rear sub. Stock the r35 has a trans axle rear mounted transmission. They moved the transmission forward to a standard mount behind the crankshaft with the holinger. Once they loose the stock trans, the whole rear end comes out.
