    Ran a John Cooper Mini Cooper S (210 hp mini)

    It wasnt from a dig....but from a 3rd gear roll while i was about 3500 rpm's.
    Heard him gun it from behind...so i did the same.I put about 2 cars on him by the top of third and then when i shifted into fourth he was slowly inching on me...had to let off past 100 mph...

    Real cool guy....he stopped and told me at the next light that he got john cooper upgrade that gives the car a new supercharger and more boost to make 210 hp...

    He loved the JDM V7 i have on mine and was impressed by the way the WRX was able to pull even from a roll.

    He told me

    Happy motoring as we drove off !!

    we just traded for a john cooper mini cooper the other day...i am going to see if i can get one of the salemen to run it against my stock WRX just to see how they compare. I drove it and it seems quick, but not sure it has the same punch as the turbo does.

    I know it's kind of off-topic, but when I first read the title of this post I could have sworn it was "I raced John Cougar Mellencamp".

    Now that is an interesting mental picture!!!

    I used to have a mini cooper s the jcw kit is cool and more power but not worth 7k. Be careful with mini's on the twisties i used to beet up on all kinds of cars in mine. If you have a mini ur better off going after market or keeping it stock and wokring on the suspension and lightening it up.

    im stock....almost

    my silencer hack and drop in fram air hog along with a sti cat back are good for about 1hp.
    he was closing on me...but fourth gear is so much further where third leaves the redline. Im sure he would not have overtaken me as roots superchargers very crappy top end.

    i know i used to jackson racing civic Si. was nice form the hole but lost its pull up top.

    They aren't made to be drag cars as we know they are amazing cars i ahve driven mini's with lots of power and then mini with alot less weight and i would pick less weight obviously.

    The only people that I've seen driving the cooperS have been complete a$$holes. I beat a nerdy guy in one to a light and he got all pissy and then got in front of me and slammed on the brakes then took off. What a tool. anyone else have cooperS a$$hole problems, or is it just me?
