STREET LEGAL 2005 Mini Cooper John Cooper Works stage rally race car all up-to-date and needs nothing.
Just turn the key and go racing!
Canadian logbook which is tolerated by Rally America as well.
picture is the latest taken @ Big White Winter Rally. Dec 15-16 2017
1.6L supercharged engine, 6 speed. tuned for 94 pump gas
Built exactly one year ago. Have completed two rallies both with class wins
And two not finished: one with bent control arm on the very first stage
and another with broken rear aluminum lateral link due to manufacturing flaw
Front suspension takes slightly modified Subaru Impreza front struts
currently JDM WRX STi with Bilstein inserts re-valved for high speed compression/rebound
and rears are off-road Bilsteins w/external canisters
Engine is tuned with Bytetronik FA53 Full access kit (comes with the car) and pulls like a train
Surely car has certified rollcage, hydraulic handbrake, aluminum front skid plate and rear suspension protection.
Rear track is widened by about 30 mm on extended wheel studs which are used instead of stupid BMW bolts.
Seats and harnesses are only 1 y.o and have a few years of life in them
King engine bearings, heat wrapped headers, silicone radiator hoses, sunroof deleted. a/c system deleted, ABS deleted.
clutch and flywheel with single mass replaced last year.
polyurethane front control arm bushings,
has adjustable timing intercooler spray. Wired for LED light bar.
EBC brake pads, Terraphone intercom and many more.
have about 20 rims, including stock JCW set. studded winter tires and a set of gravel tires to get You started.
Just installed brand All Aluminum racing radiator and rad support because old plastic had cracks.
What comes with it:
Running supercharged ENGINE with TRANSMISSION,
full wiring with ECU and body module, brake components, some front and complete rear suspension
steering components, front/rear bumpers with re-bars, fenders, rear door etc etc
long story short: i had a complete running Mini Cooper S which I took apart and even have a front end just in case =o))
surely there's more to tell about the car and really interested in it can PM for more.
Asking 11.900 without seats and harness. otherwise price will be $1800 more
but feel free to through an offer.
Currently building a new rally car, need funds and that's the only reason for selling.
Thanks for reading!
