Oct 21, 2002 update to the Mini Cooper S project car

Big Pile o’ Parts

Parts for the Cooper S have been arriving at our office from Kumho, BBS, Mini Mania, BMP Design, Supersprint, UUC Motorwerks, Koni, H&R as well as Sparco, and we’ll be performing some suspension surgery tomorrow. Graphics are already in the works, and soon we’ll be taking the car to the dyno, too.

Our first round of suspension mods have been completed, as the car now rides on H&R sport springs and Koni Sport shock absorbers.

While the car now sits a little lower, ride quality didn’t change much at all. Will the new setup yield faster lap times and increases in drive confidence?
