Default A couple new Mods

Just got a Quaife (am I the only immature one that thinks that name is hilarious?) LSD and a Competition Clutch, Stage 4, both installed by Danny over at Minicorsa. Excellent job as usual, plus a great price!! Looking forward to two track days this month, Buttonwillow 11/20 and SOW on 11/26!! Hopefully this won't happen,

Will post up some install pics whenever I find the USB cable for the camera.

Post up your impressions after break in. How did you come to select that clutch?

I will let you know, it's touchy now, easy to stall out. But the pedal is much softer and the car seems much more responsive if that makes any sense. I chose it after asking Danny at Minicorsa, and then following up with other Mini mechanics I know that track as well.
