BMW Mini Cooper S Rear Rally Suspension Upgrade – Edd China’s Workshop Diaries Finishes Making The Mini Great

Edd China is back at it, helping a buddy of his with a Mini project that is destined for Rally racing greatness. The car has all kinds of stuff done to it already, namely safety and performance upgrades, but the suspension was the final piece of the puzzle and hadn’t been touched yet. In the videos below you’ll see them work on the front suspension and then get into the rear suspension with a lot of new components designed to make this become a real rally car.

This car is nearly 14 years old, so there are going to be some challenges in getting it apart, and because it is also a “new” car there are going to be some hoops to jump through in order to replace some of the suspension components. The factory says you have to pull the whole subframe to get the suspension apart.

In typical Edd fashion, he thinks there might be a better way. Will he make it happen without taking the subframe out or resorting to a torch?

We’ll see. We can’t wait to see this sucker on the road, and wonder if the owner will let Edd take a stab at hauling ass and being sideways in the dirt on some little country road in England. What could possibly go wrong?
