Yes i did do a lot of rallying up until i bought the mini exactly 12 months ago and sold my subaru. Im stil involved with organising them but i couldnt keep up witht he running costs!!! and have the time between work and family to do it justice. At least the mini can be used when i get any spare time. :w00t:
Are you spending all day every day building the r1 mini at the moment?

Cheers

you must have seen the builder dvd it didnt take them long. i think if you have every part and a plan of action and all the time in the world it should take a month or two.

thanks for comments ian

Didnt like to say Demon tweeks but i have a contact there who will sort you out ;D pm me if you want his number?

As for the build look s cool, just one comment, the pedal box and all the other metal coated stuff is great but the pedal rubbers let it down a bit!!
I used so skateboard grip tape as do most race and raly teams and it help when you got wet feet

Just an idea for you??

What have you covered the floor in? It looks far to heavy!!! :ermm: :genius:

Glad you have it running though ;) ;)

What are you doing for a bulkhead? Z-cars or your own?

Cheers

Hi mark
the plan behind this mini is to make it a bit more practical for the road ie noise reduction.
its 2mm rubber studded matting and 10mm foam i know its a weight thing but its lighter than the origional
i will make up for the weight with polly carb windows and the guts out of the doors.
as for the bulkhead ive already started that its my own desighn 1mm alloy i will post more pics of that later
might have a vote for the desighn of the top cover as i dont like the erm 45 gallon drum style
thanks for the tip on the peddals the rubbers are just temp i made some alloy cheqer plate ones but your right about the wet feet so al have a think about that.
and it looks like am going to need mud guards soon cheers ian

Im not boxing mine in as i think the heat build up under any design will affect the power so im running a z-cars style bottom half and then running an alloy panel with a removable perspex window in it all the way up to the roof panel to seal the rear off. It should help with the heat disapation and easier to work on aswell.

Cheers

Hi Jacko, On the original mini subframe you mount the fan in between the rad and tank but on the new tubular frame it doesnt look like there is much room inbetween but loads in front so you could even just put a pacet pro fan in there or as Koss has done get one from a donor vehicle?? I used an Mpi mini fan and Pacet pull through fan mounts.

Didnt you buy the purple mini kit off e-bay a while back??

Cheers

If you fan is that big? Just be careful on the current draw as the bike engines only produce about 25-30 amps so if you are running with your lights on or wipers etc and the fan cuts in it will kill the engine as the ECU is designed to shut down when the voltage drops too low so it may cause you problems?

Cheers
