for classic Minis Cooper S and Automatics
If you want to prevent disaster, you should check your driveshaft joints before they self destruct! The best and easy way to do that is to listen and feel the car as you lift off the throttle while getting off a fast road/motorway etc.
If you feel a slight vibration, it could be the universal joints starting to go.
Mini Spares offer a universal joint that is suitable for performance use for that extra peace of mind.
Order as GUJ101EVO at £8.82 inc vat

Hi again. I'll get some more pictures of the custom cars soon..
I have been slowly stripping out the car with the eventual intention of putting in a full rollcage.
I have got hold of some carbon fiber seats. But the driver one needs re-padding and trimming.
I have made my own seat mount and plan to replace the seat mount points with tubing so I can get my ideal height..
Also,I am making a prototype hydro that will be a direct replacement for the OEM handbrake.…Continue

I'm not one for car clubs or forums. In my admittedly limited experience, they are a soapbox for those who lack imagination to dog on those who think outside the box. Sure, there are those members with vast knowledge, who are willing to impart there wisdom to anyone who seeks it out. However, for every enlightened soul, there always seems to be another 10 of the message board mafia who post after every picture - "MORE LOWZ".
The meets (again in my experience only) seem to be even worse. Dozens of folks show up at pubs with car parks, (which generally means it's a play park / pub / eatery) order a round of soft drinks and talk in a riddle of chassis and engine codes.
There is the occasional club meet I can get on board with though. The Nissan 200SX Owners Club track day at Crail is just such a day.…Continue
