I'm fairly certain you can't anodise ferrous metals. You'll have to paint them.

Another +1 for rear brake overkill. Unnecessary weight IMO.

Awesome spec so far too, I hope that's not coming...

I don't know with respect to minis but in the world of Honda's, specifically the FD2, ohlins are the DBs. Best of the best.

Strange site is rimmerbros, great for some things and a total rip off for others. They want £10 per rover wheel nut. Day light robbery!

I really don't rate the A539 for dry road use. They squeal like crazy and have a soft sidewall. Fine for driving miss daisy drivers I suppose... But I doubt there's many of them on a 16v mini forum....

^agreed with Gazwad on that one.

That said, I'd have guessed the biggest improvements would be from the flat(er) floor (including engine undertray) and tie in the rear valance.

Well, as luck would have it... The body shop it is at is a lotus elan specialist and make their own FG chassis. I think I'll just ask him to widen them.
