Jun 25, 2007 update to the Mini Cooper S project car

Hey, It’s a ‘MINI’ again

The MINI Cooper S felt a lot more MINI-like yesterday at our local autocross. Kim and Per went back and forth on times and if we were at a National-level event, Kim would have taken the lead over Per by .3 seconds on her third run. Per, however, dropped 8/10ths on his fourth to take back the lead, but Kim did come back with another .3 second improvement on her fourth. Credit the Konis for making the car much easier to drive at the limit. Once again, Konis simply rock.

CFR DeLand Results for 6/24

We wound up being the 4th and 6th fastest cars overall in raw time and first and second in index. That was on our smaller 16-inch rims and tires—we can’t wait to see what the car feels like on the Konis AND the bigger rubber.
