Hornet is driving- badly. It handles rather like a greased pig, largely thanks I believe to the adjustable suspension items I fitted. Does anyone know of a good place to get this set up in Sussex? Doesn't have to be mini-specific, just recommended please. Ta!

I think most of the Hornets were on Hydrolastic suspension originally. Exactly what suspension is now fitted?
Before taking it to be set up it would be worth checking the basics such as ride height. You can also check toe-in/out is in the right ball park with a long plank of wood and some improvisation. Wheel offset and tyre size / pressures can also make a big difference to handling.

Wherever you take it make sure they know how to adjust a Mini suspension. It is quite different from modern cars.
If you have fitted adjustable suspension items it might be assumed that you have adjustable length tie-bars.
I have previously posted on here the optimum settings for a road Mini.

Hi Mat, I'm in West Sussex too and this is my next job as well! I have never used them but have heard good things - Mini Motorsport in Shoreham. Trying to get booked in soon but can't get through on the phone!
