Just stumbled across this palce thro a link to a thread posted on another forum :cry:

Seems a busy place so figured id join up!

Got into minis a few years ago casue i crashed my car and needed another car to get to a party, so bought a mini my we bro had his eye on(he cidnt drive so i bought it with the intention of letting him have it when he could!. At the time i wasnt keen on them but grew to love it :cry:
Thanks to minis i taught myself how to weld, fit bodykits, paint and everything mechanical resulting in my current daily driver :cry:

If your a "purist" dont scroll down!




Tis a 1600cc rover k-series plucked from an accident damaged rover 400 :cry:

i certainly have, but cant afford it, not by a loooooooong way.

Racelogic's system is aproacing the £600mark for a basic basic kit. Shame there isnt a MegaSquirt'n'Traction controll avaliable :cry:


Im dreaming up my own system in my head (just finished my degree, and specialised in electonics and microprocessors in my final year) but its a logn way form even bein put to paper yet :cry:
