MINI’s New Shoes

Update by Per Schroeder to the Mini Cooper project car

Kim and I have been in a small dilemma with this MINI. Kim realized that she was just 2 events away from having enough points in STX for a year-end trophy. As a first-year autocrosser, Kim is understandably psyched about this. Of course, I had to go an sell the SE-R which throws a monkey wrench in the works. We came up with a pretty easy solution. We mounted up some leftover Falken Azenis on the extra set of 15” MINI wheels that I found online. This will allow Kim to run a few more times in STX (an HS car on “street touring” style tires is legal in HS, STS, STX) while I can see how it compares on PAX index as an HS car. After Kim finishes up her two events, we’ll be switching over to R-compound tires.
