I'm using the minisport 4 pots.
It handles great but at the same time as the brakes I fitted kad rear adjustable toe/camber brackets, minispares adjustable lower arms, tie rods, new ball joints, new knuckles all round, front bearings, longer track rod ends and front subframe mounts, hi lo's and gaz standard heights, and its all been set up at professionally. its amazing, a total transformation

God that a lot would the geometry be ok with just spacers on no? And if you put spacers on would they make the wheel sit out over the brakes a bit?

Putting spacers on does affect the geometry, how much I don't really know.The spacers on mine were used so that the wheels clear the calipers, wether you need them or not depends on your calipers and wheels. I fitted all the brakes/suspension, fitted wheels and spacers, set ride height, then set the geometry up.

Nice Mini 40 Rob Mac. Those 10" gold alloys look good, continues the gold theme with pin stripe and Mini 40 emblems. I thought about fitting 13" gold superlights to my 40 but decided to keep the standard Rover alloys. Those 10s do look good.....

thanks. I'm pleased with how they look, I wanted to keep the gold theme going. I've still got the rover 13's to return to standard if/when needed, and I'll be rebuilding the 8.4 brakes etc. to fit back on to return to standard
