Jun 19, 2007 update to the Mini Cooper S project car

Konis now all installed

The bushings from Helix came yesterday and we finished up the installation of the double adjustable rear Konis on our 2007 MINI Cooper S. The rear DAs are leftover from our 2005 and have stiffer rebound adjustments and rather stout compression adjustments, while the fronts are specifically valved for the 2007. The result is a firm, but extremely controlled ride, with a lot less squat under acceleration and much less wheelspin on corner exit, even with our stock run-flat tires. We’ll be at the track tomorrow to play around with the settings using racing tires.

These bushings allow the use of R53 (2002-2006 MINI) rear shock absorbers on the 2006 MINI GP and 2007+ MINIs.
