    My friend in KC turned me onto this site for some more technical advice for tuning and suspension ideas.

    Little bit about myself, I work at Gateway Raceway, and I help run a drift club called Driftstl. I have been racing since I was about 13, started out in karts, switched to weekend bike racing, then to rally, and then back to karting. I'm currently in college, and I am getting a degree in marketing with an automotive sports application.

    I drive a Hyper blue 2005 Mini cooper S. I bought it brand new in 05 from Auto Haus of Clayton.

    Mods to date:
    After market tail lights
    Front aero clip
    CAI
    ECU
    Injectors
    Re worked OEM Suspension
    BBS Wheels
    Boost and Batt. pods
    Front and rear strut bars, one Speed works, the other Carbon fiber.
    Stereo system w/ Ipod hook up.


    I will post pics soon

    Welcome, I'm in Southern IL for now but have run at Gateway, good to have you here.
    Can't wait to see pics of your car as it seems we both are drawn to blue cars with BBSs.

    Yes, we have a sticker but there is a small cost, add your wheels to the WheelFinder and then send me a PM with your address. I'll mail a set out.
