    Possibly for the serious tracker, and absolutely for the full out racer. :Thumbsup:

    Production of these full race rear trailing arm pickups, (replacement for the factory bushing setup), is ready to go for the Mini R50 and R53 (non GP) .
    The picture shows the prototype which were installed in a devoted track day R-50 well over a year ago. Still in use today with not a single issue, and this is a Vermont car.
    The new design looks the same but with refined adjustments. This is absolutely the most friction free, zero slop rear trailing arm bushing replacement available for the Mini. Gives you the ability to adjust toe and track. Corrects caster and anti-dive in lowered car.
    This is a relatively easy installation. Some grinding needed and also possible slight shifting of the fuel filler hose.
    Built in my shop by me per order request. Not an inventory item.

    Will take the first few orders at $500 for a set. Includes everything needed.

    Please feel free to email me with any questions at [email protected] :Thumbsup:

    Please ignore the front control arm as it is still in refinement stages after being tracked for a season. :ihih: It's the only pictiure I have at this time. Long story.

    WoW, am so glad you are around making parts like these. Save people a lot of time trying to fabricate their own, in only hopes it might work.

    I am having issues, trying to picture this installed. Where does the Heim joint actually screw into on the trailing arm ?

    Also, gathered from what you have said in the thread about your CAs, you would only suggest this to be used w/ your CAs as well ?

    Would this be something you would even consider to be used on the street ?

    What about use with R56/GP trailing arms?

    Edit: I just got to my shop. They won't work as pictured. Different attachment on the aluminum trailing arm. Guess you'll have to do a V.2, Greg.

    KC, thanks. These can be used with any control arms.
    As far as street use? I can really only say that they are built for racing and sold for racing with the understanding that these are "racing parts".

    Greg, YES, I will be designing a similar part for the later models. We will talk.

    Pre 2006 Mini R50 and R53?

    Was there a change on the 06 R50/53 from 05? Besides the GP that used the 07+ trailing arms.

    Nathan,
    Correct Nathan. Yes, it was just the GP I guess that changed the design during the R50-R53. I was thinking that there were some steal arms that also went with the new style bushing design.
    I have no problem stating that I get a little lost on what car has what design. ;)
