Cheers mab01uk for that, I was only just now reading up on it.

 

Absolutely EPIC to say the least - be the journey of a lifetime.

 

I wish them well and all in the name of a few good causes.

Having followed a few builds that have done this i think they made a bad choice on the adjustable suspension as they have been known to bend.

 

it is one hell of a trip though. And very tough on the cars.

I love my mini and always have this dream of some sort of road trip across thousands of miles discovering the world!
Then I drive 30 miles to a classic car show at the seaside and have cramp in my ankle, am hot and the endless rattling from the heater has given me a terrible headache....
