Car is being used by my mate at present as is T&T. Runs great so seemed a shame not to use it. But will have to take some before shots, will ask him to drop over this week with it.

just thought if u had 13" there smaller than the busas normal so more acceloration than the busa sooooo....13 are best bet because of the more grip meaning u can put more power into it
make it storng and turn well
and we could have a cozzie beater

thinkig of cozys i saw a modded one today with dump valve sounded the *man danglies*

You can forget the Cossie brigade, I'm after the Macca F1's and Enzo boy's,
all it has to do is a 11.0 standing quarter to beat them.
My Ultima was 395 bhp/ton and did a 11.8, so a 610 bhp/ton Mini should do at least
a high 10 with Traction control etc..
PS that's 350 bhp at the crank, which is only 14psi boost, with upgrades you can run 20psi (450-500bhp at the crank) so you can see why I'm getting alittle serious about what started out as just a toy to get to work and back.

Unless you really like the look of 13s, consider going to 10" wheels for normal use. You can always throw on a set of 13" slicks for drags or whatever, but with that much power if you run dished 13"s your bearings will need replacing every few weeks probably.

MB spectrum 10" split wheels... they weigh as much as a feather :)

I need some realy wide tyres on the rear, 225 at least to get the power down on those dry days. So will have to use at least 14" if not 15" rims.
This is causing a lot of rethinking at present, the rear suspension will be made from new so can be made to fitt anything I want, but the front suspension will have to go in the bin now. Zcars do a grass track Double A arm front suspension so will just have to have it welded on higher than normal to make sure the Mini still keeps it's ride hight correct.

So that's what the other thread is for, I need some body kit's or large arches etc.

Life's getting a little more complicated, but after speaking to Jack at Holeshot he has told me to try and lower the car as his was to tall, and the Vacumn does not realy work well with our engine setup, so the Brakes will have to be bigger and manualy operated. He has been very helpful, honest and friendly.
Nice bloke.
