Project Binky - Episode 2 - Austin Mini GT-Four - Turbo Charged 4WD Mini
In the 2nd episode of Project Binky, we start to get down to the nitty
gritty of the build. We strip out the front bulkhead, make all new
suspension mounting points and drink a lot of tea. We also travel to
Goodwood for a cheeky track day. The project to fit all of the running gear
from a Toyota Celica ST185 GT-Four into a Mini 1000 without widening or
lengthening it, really starts to take shape.
There'll be more by Christmas 2013 we hope, so please subscribe to our
channel to get all the updates.
Thanks for watching, we hope you enjoy our escapades.
Feel free to share it far and wide!
Celica All-Trac 12.04 @122.46 mph Quarter Mile run at RMR
Well, on 29 psi of Boost with bad
launches on cruddy 205/40/17 h rated Kumho tires, in conjunction with a
slick track, I ran consistant 12.0 - 12.1 runs at the last Midnight Drags
of the year. This was one of my runs that night. With some more tuning,
higher Boost, better driving and
some slicks, next season I'm shooting for low 11's/high 10's... We'll see
how it goes... :-)
Celica All-Trac 521 WHP dyno + 11.8 quarter mile run

correction factor). Also shows the car out on the track for the first time
running an 11.8 quarter mile on 205/40/17 street tires. All turbo system fabrication and tuning performed by
Kris at KORacing. For more info, check out koracing.net
868 & 863whp Dyno pull, Celica Alltrac ST-185, Full Exhaust
These 2 back to back runs were at 43psi falling to 39psi. Right at peak
torque, (7000rpm) the tires spun on the Dyno on both runs. Apparently
the front was doing a wheelie, so we put a a different strap across the
front straps. Needless to say the 47psi run was just ridicules
