You have mad skills.

I am not sure myself if a clamping drop-out is required with so much meat to hold the shaft, but I agree that the shaft will always move a litle if not clamped.
It could be something like this in order to avoid removing too many screws :
Thanks I dont have much experience in bike, but I have 15 years experience doing 3D CAD design, and maybe 10 years doing CNC programing/milling/turning.

Welcome to the fold.
He he, not so many more. Norco is almost finished selling this batch of A-line frames. They've been going for cheap because, unlike the previous version, this one didn't do good with the DH - Freeride crowd. I bet Norco will never risk making another A-Line again. The new Aurum and Truax (repacing the Team DH and A-Line) have a completely redesigned suspension frame that is more likely to make a success on the tracks.

Love the front-mount battery box! I put the controller up-front on my wife's bike, but I haven't had the acerage to do it on my other builds; are you sure it won't hit the front wheel when the suspension is compressed? Also, I'd consider super-beefy phase wires for the long run to the motor. BTW, the plastic version of my Magudaman dropouts fit perfectly, but the Ally version didn't give like the plastic did, so you still may see some filing when you get to metal.

I wasnt expecting such a high price for the drop-out.

Here is the key switch + the access for charging ( there is a protector cap on it ):
Inside the box, design have changed for the bracket ( all images are upside down )
Battery pack will be removable. I will strap it in place with velcro.
