So they sent you rods with small end 2mm to big?
I think they should make more effort for you!!!
Or is it a mistake when ordering the spec/size ?
I don't know why it's so slow! It takes about 15 minutes the bosh them holes in the rods?

Yes mate, they raspberryed up! the standard size is 18mm and these should be 18mm, there website lists 18mm in the specs and they have admitted they melonsed up. Turns out 9 people have these useless rods!

Even more annoying I've had these since September and never thought about checking them!

They are also going to enlarge the bolts to 5/16th from 3/8th!

That should deal with you first! No excuses!
The smaller pin gives more meet left in piston
And the smaller pins are a bit lighter,
Not that it's a reason for them to mess about,
Best to complain!

Very happy to see you have actually got these after all the grief the seller got. It must of been a worrying time waiting with the amount of investment you had in them.

Massive shame about the rods. Have you got a new plan of action?

I don't think many people realise the work that goes into building these high powered Mini's. It's a credit to you that you haven't given up to be honest.
