    ill be able to post up the results in 2 weeks, its booked in for a dyno tune with one of the best a-series tuners in the country.
    before headwork on twin 1.25" SU's i had 42kW at the front, will be interesting to see the difference on paper

    updates:
    simplicity of design is awesome!
    on its second softest setting i have done away with all the understeer


    the front sway bar should go in tomorrow hopefully, its going to take alot of custom fabrication to get it to fit but then i should be able to crank the suspension up to hardcore and see how fast it can corner. without the sway bars i was able to maintain the same speed around round-abouts as my friends wrx, but upon exit he would take accelerate way faster than me.

    also realized that i havent uploaded a photo of the new carb and how it sits through the firewall almost

    induction noise is epic :P

    got my ticket to the sydney MCM meet today so it shall be there in its current state, but i will be stripping it out afterwards to get it ready for the buladelah hill climb in september.

    also looking for a 3rd mini. a coupe this time to build from ground up with a sprint conversion to turn into a hardcore track/road car.

    no. its staying original w0ith the 3/4" exhaust. lol.

    getting the 19mm sway bars retrofitted "PROFESSIONALLY" because with such a major modification to the chaises i dont feel comfortable doing it DIY.

    SAFETY FIRST

    The withdrawal symptoms from not driving one for so long are terrible.

    I'm guessing it must be like a crackhead that's kicked the habit. You know you should stay clear of them as they will take over your life and slowly bankrupt you but there is always that temptation just to spend your life savings and go buy another one.

    I can't wait for mine to be done and I can relapse.

    The yellow van is essentially that. Got the new mini of historic plates blue slipped and real rego'd. When the sway bars arrive ill be stopping the mods on the pocket rocket cause my parent are kicking up a fuss about me racing it. So ill be looking at buying a turbo n12 exa as a racing/rally/hillclimb project that can also be driven on the road
