Tom’s Mini Cooper S: The Jerry Killer

Published on June 30th, 2010

Let’s just throw sentimentality out the window and accept the fact that changes can be good too. And in this case, a new Mini Cooper S souped up and slapped with crazy (let’s not forget expensive) mods, ready to trash any tarmac on any given track.

Or, just cruise around town and let the sound do the talking.

Dwelling in the deepest abyss of Motoring underground, Tom is the overlord of Zerotohundred.com, being the one responsible for the creation of the motoring website/forum. If you’re reading this and found yourself wondering just what the hell is Zerotohundred.com, there’s something wrong with your cerebrum. Have it checked by the nearest neurosurgeon. If you’re lucky, you might spend the rest of your life in a research facility somewhere far, far from home.

Anyways, Zerotohundred.com started its life as a motoring forum back in 2000, exactly ten years  ago (they’ve just celebrated their 10th year anniversary by throwing a Time Attack Party with HPC in Sepang International Circuit). Since 10 years ago, they’ve been scorching tarmacs and smoking fumes, at home ground and internationally.

Let’s get back to the Mini Cooper S before Botak starts screaming up and down my throat.

As you can see, the Mini is decorated with the shade of green taken straight from the new GT3RS and the Porsche’s style livery.

No engine swapping here (not like this is the old Mini with a VTEC engine, but that’s another story), but the original 1.6 engine has been going high on weed with Shrick cams, John Cooper Works intake with ITG filter, MSD ignition coil pack & leads, M7 oil catch tank, Fastlane oil cooler and GRS V2 big intercooler, Alta intercooler snoop boots, Hartge 15% supercharger pulley, 0% Alta lightweight crank pulley, GTT tensioner stop, twin idler bearing, tensioner bearing, AC Schnitzer cat-back exhaust sytem wrapped with thermotec heat wrap, MOCM skid plate and Hartge reflashed ECU, all parked inside the engine bay.

For that stopping power, Brembo GT custom yellow calipers with 320x28mm 2-piece slotted rotors are used. Bilstein PSS9 coilovers, K-Mac front camber plates, Alta rear adjustable arms, Mini Madness adjustable rear antiroll bar, AC Schnitzer front strut brace, O.Z. Ultraleggera black rims wrapped with Michelin PP2 tyres and Super Pro lower arm poly bush are all thrown into the handling area of the car. This is definitely not a Mini you’d buy for your girlfriend. But then again, if your girlfriend is as maniacal as you are, you might want to give her phone number to me.

Moving on to the looks. Porsche’s Signal Green paint job has been applied complete with aerokit, Arqray adjustable carbon spoiler, Fastlane cowl vents, rear facelift lights and Porsche GT3 RS style side decals.

Interior-wise, Sparco Milano seats are the ones carressing the driver’s ass. AC Schnitzer pedals are used for pedal-play, Promini oil pressure and boost meters, Stack oil temperature and voltage meters, and Hamann gearknob and brake lever are installed to smoother the feel on that left hand.

If you ever see this car on the road, be perfectly aware that the car is owned by one of the people who helped develop the motoring scene in Malaysia. So, if you still want to ‘cucuk’ this car, do so at your own risk. If you got smoked, don’t go and cry to your mama, because we’ve definitely told you so.

            Nahh, the writer was high on, errr, KFC when he wrote this. The typo has been corrected. It’s a 1.6 with intensive mods.
