    Tow cars

    Ideally it’s what I’d like but I’m not sure it will be heavy enough

    Tow cars

    I’ve been considering opting out of the company car scheme when the tax year ends in April as much as I love my M140i. But for what it costs it’s not really a perk any more plus having something with a tow bar could be useful for trailering the track cars to track days. So my question is what do you tow with? What weight would I need to be at safe levels? can anyone recommend anywhere for doing the trailer test? what trailer do you use? In an ideal world I think I’d prefer an estate or saloon car to an SUV but open to ideas

    The batmobile

    I have also purchased some r56 trailing arms and some of Karl’s nifty mounts. I suppose if we’re going to do it we might as well do it properly

    The batmobile

    Long over due update, engine is together, it’s all been balanced, this has now met the gearbox with the new clutch and flywheel

    Trackmini project version 2.0

    A few weeks later, myself, Rob and Simon met up. We got the front coil overs off the black mini in simons garage, but failed getting the backs off as how we had it jacked up was sketchy. We they started on fitting the roll cage. Simon made plates while I got the last bit of sound deadening out of the car. Simon then started to weld the plates in, we then put the rear part of the cage in, at this point I was going to head for home but the battery died.

    Trackmini project version 2.0

    From there I continued selling but off including the 3 spoke wheel and airbag, door casings, Xenon lights to highlight a few bits. i then started on removing all the sound deadening material

    Trackmini project version 2.0

    I’ve had a strange year with illness in the family, plus been mega busy at work so this didn’t get as far as I intended. Jack at work came round and swapped the stat and housing which stopped the over heating issue, we ended the day by fitting the gold team dynamics Rob had given to the project
