Apr 23, 2007 update to the Mini Cooper S project car

Racking up another Win

Our 2007 MINI Cooper S racked up another win this Sunday with Per at the wheel. Kim had some problems with those pesky cones.

We’ve also done some testing comparing the new car to a well-prepped 2005 Cooper S. The results were quite surprising and will be published in an upcoming issue of the magazine.

In other news, we’ve started using Hoosier A6s on the car and will soon be comparing 17x7-inch Enkei wheels to our current 16x6.5-inch Rotas. The larger wheels can fit some pretty big (but tall) race rubber under the fenders, which might help our wheelspin issues. We’ve also begun to consider upgrading our shock absorber package.
