Maybe a bigger capacity Supercharger Andrew.. Those AR-1 tyres seem to be the business..

Bigger charger is very hard to find. It would be best option though.

Another octane day last Friday, brakes vibrating more now, may have warped a disc. Ar1's still have loads left but only did 1/2 day in Mazda.

Loads of classic minis on track. Best fwd car out there.

Changed brake and clutch fluid after the day.

Put in some new rotors today, didn't think I overheated them but the vibration is gone. Same pads.

Found this just before a multi venue auto test. I was thinking of changing the suspension anyway as it's probably 10-15 years old. Tein super streets that were covered with underseal.

Found these year old Ohlins on nutz.

Bastard of a job getting the old fronts out, spring adjusters were seized solid and limited space for spring clamps but got there in the end. They make the rest of underside of the car look very old.

Quick test drive and the car is much stiffer, good range of damping from fairly stiff to really stiff. The ride isn't as good as the Teins, but the springs are much stiffer in the Ohlins, so its expected. Be interesting to see how they go on track.

20 clicks of adjustment all from the top of the shock.
