  1. Now that registration is open it’s fair game to discuss plans. When is everyone heading down? Brandy and I have the Cabin Monday through Sunday. So I think we are going to go as far a Tazwell, VA (North end of the back of the dragon) on Sunday. Then working our way south exploring some nice roads on our way in Fontana arriving Early afternoon on Monday.

  4. Sounds awesome. I am no help on the meeting, I am more of an enabler than a sponsor
  5. the rails are still available, there are no TPMS on the blizzaks
  6. I would say just go to the shop, I did not find a lot of interest yet. Do mention the club when you go
  7. Many of us use the cold winter to do some upgrades to our MINI/Mini. What projects do you have planned. I got these goodies delivered to my doorstep from Britain today. Last year was full drivetrain swap, this year is just a fresh up of the suspension
  8. They did not come with overdrive, always a 4 speed. the gear ratios post 1984 are: 3.647|2.185|1.425|1.000 with the diff ratio changing from 3.105 to 2.76 in 1996. That lower the rpm at highway speeds and reduced noise, but sacrificed torque on twisty roads in lower gears. I can run 65mph down the highway with no issues, the biggest issue you can have is overheating on extended highway driving in the hotter humid summer. That can be corrected fairly cheap with improved water pump, radiator, and if needed a larger pulley to decease the speed the pump spins. James had his re-geared as he drives it on the highway for long distances, and he said being able to cruise at 80 was not worth what he lost where you do your fun driving.
  9. Absolutely, they just have to be 56” tall at least 13 years old, and under 300lbs
  10. We are looking to put on some events during the winter months so we can all get together without being dependent on the weather. A few year ago we had a group outing at Autobahn – Dulles, high speed indoor Go-Kart track, that was a lot of fun. I have done a research and it looks like we could do an outing that would include 3 races (20 Laps) per person and include license, head sock, and whatever else needed for between $50 - $60 a person. It was a lot of fun last time, and could be fun to have a recurring Winter Indoor Kart Championship each year. If you are interested, please comment below. Also please include any suggestion you may have, (would want less races for a cheaper price point, etc…) I look forward to your input, would like to do this mid December or early January
  11. Now that the countryman has moved on I got a lot of accessories to get out of the garage: - Free: Set of Bridgestone Blizzak 225/45R17 on a 5x120 lug pattern. These will only fit gen2 countryman/paceman - $100: MINI locking roof cross rails with key and torque wrench - Free: 3 Pirelli Cinturato P7 205/45r17 88w (higher speed rating) runflats. These are not cheap. Still have good tread, pothole killed the sidewall on the forth and I switched to non-runflats. Buy one and pair then with the item below for a great summer set. - $100: set of OEM 17” black rims with 5x120 lug pattern. Again these only fit gen2 countryman/paceman. One rim has a curb scuff on the lip(in the photo) rest are good, it would danish with a little touch up paint. -$100: VIP custom quad light bar ($289 retail) this is for just the bar you would have to provide your own lights. I have Hella 500 black Magic lights(4) and fresh wiring with switch that can be included for an additional $100 ($200 total) this setup is going for $599 on the site right now.
