Well i cant help myself ever since i sold my mini i have always wanted another and well i have got another. As i have a van as my everydayer this ones gonna be a bit special :). Not actually getting it till the 9th of march though. But its a g reg racing flame which has had all major work done. The plan is to use the lynx ae r1 cradle as they are only 15mins away from me and will be using a 2002 5pw. heres a few pictures.

nice, I like the look and idea of the lynx over the pro-motive as you dont hae to butcher anything and can always go back to 'the more powerfull' a series awsomeness

I know what your saying, i like the idea of the promotive for the 6 reverse engine driven gears, and the longer chain which should help lifespan. Not keen on electric reverse

Hi well it arrived today very happy with it brought a recon rh radius arm and also lh rear brake refurb set plans for the next 2 weeks will be to remove rear subframe as not been painted or anything and will try to make bit lighter (out comes the holesaw) and then will give it a fresh coat of hammerite and them assemble with the new bits.
It all a bit busy in garage now...
