Newbie Here!

Hey everyone..my name is Brandon and new owner(sorta)..actually my gf’s daily and we are both gonna race it in HPD events. It’s a 2005 Mini S 6sp, stock at the moment we named Nugget. Next weekend it’s gonna be a completely new car lol. We are from Evansville, IN. Both first time Mini owners. Car is a blast to drive. Any suggestions for making the MINI experience better, I am all ears!

P.S Already has to put new power steering pump in 🙄

Welcome.

You have some light wheels and tires for the auto X? Other then that maybe a rear sway bar upgrade and some good pads and rotors for the event.

Welcome from a fellow Hoosier.

For sure one of our rear sway bars would be the biggest suspension bang for the buck. And happy to help with anything else as we've built more R53s than I can count.
