Absolutley mental - great video, cheers Gav :drink2:

Never thought I'd see an A-series do that!

I wonder what its lifespan is :D

The torque steer was being exaggerated for the camera...

Engine needs a rebuild every 6 months, it kills cam followers and bearings apparantly.

That's mad, 225 bhp is quick enough in a car like a Renault Megane 225 Sport but in a Mini - crackers !

I want overrun flames like that on my ZS :cry2: lol.

Lot of time and effort gone into that Mini though.

I saw one at Croft last year that had a B18C (1.8 vtech) Honda engine in it, with 4 individual throttle bodies and lots of other engine work done, I expect it was arround 250bhp. Didn't see it running though.

Does anyone know if this would be achiavable on a V6 without one of those tacky, illegal flamer kits ? I would love to have proper engine produced flames popping out of the cans !

Don't buy a kit... drill a hole into the exhaust, stick a spark plug through the hole, connect spark plug to battery via switch in cabin, Now tweek the engine to run rich (the richer the better) and when you want the flame drive the car and press the new button... Bang instant flame! :D

dont forget to use a coil,you wont get a spark from just 12v.

That's one awesome Mini, but I can't help thinking a supercharger would have a better delivery of torque right from low revs! It can be done, I saw a brilliant S/C installation on an A series recently.

Cheapest way to enrich the mixture - buy a tuppence resistor off Ebay!

Actually my BGT on twin carbs does a wonderful pop-popping sound coming off the throttle at 4k rpm!
