I've changed the cones for small coil springs recently which is just amazing the difference it's made to the handling! I really should have taken some photos as I was doing it but nevermind. I'll get some photos taken at some point of them on the car.
It's a rebuilt HiF44 SU which is the same one that you can get off a 1275 metro from a scrapyard, which keeps the costs nice and low, ish.
Yep, small coilsprings! There's a company called Minitastic (and many others for that matter!) that sell coils that replace the rubber cones of the standard suspension system. I'll take some photos of them on for anyone that's interested. I would have done some proper build photos but I was up to my neck in Copper greese trying to make sure the height adjusters will keep adjusting as time goes by! At the moment I've got it running quite a lot lower than in those photos with the new setup, but I might have to raise it just a touch for clearance.
Whilst I know the Merlin bit was a joke, it's the Eaton M45 blower incase anyones interested!
