Texas noobs are the best noobs.
I think you're by far the most mature admitted 17 year old I've seen on here.

Hustler: Rear end is doing well. Thanks.

The new Minis are nothing like the old ones. The new ones are big, heavy, and not very "mini" at all. Our red mini wieghs in at 1354lbs and has a fully built engine with web carbs, cams, very nice head work. Puts out around 110 HP....not bad for a 1275cc. It's probably the best fun you can have in a front drive car.

New minis rely on FI to go quick, not lightwieght like the old ones. The regular just mini cooper blows, heavy and little power (skinny *** tyres too).

No. My dads friend just put it together. He has only run it twice.

Recognized the red mini from the photos you posted. I was a corner worker at a CVAR event at TWS early last year. Took a bunch of photos and you are in some of them!
