Jan 13, 2004 update to the Mini Cooper S project car

The waiting is the hardest part

JB Racing Flywheel
The Sachs 4-puck clutch should hold on better than the overworked stock piece.
Here's a CAD rendering of our Torsen differential for the MINI Cooper S. It's now in the machining phase. Torsen will actually be be building several units for testing in other Getrag equipped cars.

While we’ve been waiting for the Torsen, we sourced a lightweight flywheel from JB Racing and a 4-puck clutch from Sachs. This should help our little 1.6 liter engine spool up quicker.

The JB Racing Flywheel is quite a bit lighter than stock. We’ll be weighing both before the transmission is reinstalled.
