I'm looking for some help setting up my 1971 Mini for autocross and would greatly appreciate any help.
The car is stripped of any unnecessary items (interior, mouldings, heaters, blowers, passenger seat, wiper motors etc.) Roll bar installed and entire car powder coated and baked. Subframes were removed, powder coated and replaced with all new hardware. Front and rear subframes have the harder racing cones, HiLos and adjustable GAZ shocks. The Cone setup is hardest in the front, slightly less in the rear. I have KAD swaybars front and rear. I have adjustable lower arms and tie rods front and KAD adjustable camber plates in the rear.
I would like to lower the car further than it is but, when I adjust the HiLo's to lower the car, they get to a point where the Cone starts to back out of the cup that holds it in place. Creating the potential to have the cone move out of the cup seems dangerous so I am wondering how I can lower the car further with the components that are in the car now?
One more item, I have the adjustable camber plates on the rear subframe and can only get 1 degree negative camber. Is there a trick to getting closer to 1.5- 2 degrees?
Thank you for your input!
