The Chassis has been enhance the famous capabilities of the Mini and reduce weight. The Brakes are light to use and well-modulated and it goes without saying will stop the car on a pin-head!! The coilover conversion retains all the charm of the Mini's suspension but eliminates the " Bounciness" associated with the rubber donuts and allows fast height and damping adjustments. The car has just had a full geometry set up at Tolman Motorsport so is razor sharp and changes direction like a hornet!
