Ive read a lot of threads about fixed camber plates and adjustable top mounts,
Buts is there no way of winding a bit of camber on the front without these? Even just -1.5/-2 degrees?
Never had a car before where SOME front camber adjustment isnt possible, cant find anything about it anywhere..
Well, after some thinking and a few mods I've started modifying my '06 JCW R53.
Big mods started some weeks ago when I ordered the 4-2-1 with 100 cells cat to Mini Motorsport UK. I also got the 225hp remap soon to fit a camshaft. Hope to get after that around 235-240hp.
Dry battery's been...
As per the title really. At constant speed its completely fine but under hard acceleration i get vibration through the front end of the car , mainly steering wheel.
Any ideas? I have a feeling after searching around online it could be a driveshaft problem..
Its worst in 2nd gear above 2000rpm...
I'm new to the MINI scene and am looking at making my 02 One a little better.
I've done a few miles but am suprised to find that I am only getting 300 miles per tank of fuel. Is this normal or is my car running bad??? It feels OK to drive and has standard 15" alloys and no Mod's, yet...

Hi all, do OMP etc do a front lower brace for an R56 Cooper S? A mate is after one but I had a look and lohen do not sell one, so I wondered if anyone actually makes one? I was saying how much I noticed when I put the lower one on my R53.
After my first track day experience, my focus has moved from powah to brakes and suspension. About to get the brakes sorted over the coming weeks.
On the suspension department I am looking into getting some more negative camber (front) to reduce understeer and hopefully getting better grip...
When i got it it was standard as anything. No options, not even pepper pack!
since then she has had a lot of different looks!
i dont have a pic of when i first got her...but here is one of how she was...
but she had the standard 15" rims and no stripes or xenons!

This is the story of my beloved ANT-1 :)
I have always loved the new MINI but never thought that it could be my only car. In November 2009, I made a decision to sell my BMW 330d xDrive and thought that I could by something smaller and cheaper to drive, while I think which car would...
