Officially the World's Fastest Mini!!!!
This has been a long time in the making, it was the first time we ran it on the drag strip with the freshly built 7.2L. We ran a 10 dead on the motor at first. We then squirted some gas down it and a 9.6 second quarter was achieved. There is a bit of tweeking to do to maybe see 8seconds!! 600bhp, only running 50% of the 150bhp of Nitrous ;o)
We have just got back from Shakespeare County Raceway and claimed the official Worlds Quickest Mini Award 2008!!! Bring on 2009!
1964 VW engine on a Gibson frame. After sitting in an old barn for 15 years, I brought this thing to life in May of 2009. Fuel filters, new gas lines, new fuel pump, carb rebuild, plug wires, plugs, points, 6 volt battery , battery cables, wiring and 3 oil changes. Smokes sometimes on start up due to bad valve seals but runs great after warm up. Got several plows, rock rake and a small bulldozer blade to play with. Love it !

Mini V8 roadster at knebworth.mov
NOW FOR SALE.
My car is a 1975 Austin Mini. This car has been completely restored and is now powered by a 4Lt rover v8 engine and 5 speed transmission. The carburettor is a four barrel Edelbrock 500 as is the inlet manifold. Crower 232 cam and stage 2 cylinder heads. Ignition is provided by Mallory. The cassis is made from 38mm CDS tubing. Fibre glass boot lid and bonnet. The car has a steel flip front to allow easy access to the engine. The differential is a Ford Sierra Cosworth LSD. The suspension is coil over shocks all round. Seats are black glass fibre buckets with 4 point harnesses. The car now has disk brakes all round with 4 pot callipers on the front and Ford Sierra callipers on the back. Due to the engine layout the radiator is in the rear of the vehicle. The wiring loom and all electrics are new. Wheels are alloy and are 15X8 all round. Weight is approximately 600Kg's.
This gives me 500BHP per tonne.
If you look on Ken Voss's website he has an applet to calculate quarter mile times. Mine comes out at 9.46 @ 144MPH which is a shame cos my tyres are rated at 130 MPH Ha Ha Ha.
