I am new to the forum, my name is Daniel and I am from Montreal Canada.
After years of drooling at the Z-cars projects and lately the Pro-Motive I have finally last summer got my hands on a clean Rover for my project. I have decided to go the Pro-motive way. As I am new to the MINI scene I will be looking for your advice on some issues I might be oblivious to. The kit has been ordered (6 weeks waiting time) I have started stripping the MINI getting it ready for the body shop.
The first subject I will be asking advice on is suspension setup. I planned on running 13x7 wheels and have purchased spax coil overs (lowered height) Just getting worried about my choice since I have been reading coil overs are not the best way to go.
What are you ProMotive guys running as basic setup? ride height, camber, castor, toe, anti-roll bar?
I also purchased barnett clutch springs but see that mostly everyone is using the complete clutch assembly, would springs be enough? and how is the pedal feel (I hate a soft clutch pedal)
As for the sump baffle, is it really a must if the car is mostly for daily driving with occasional track days?
