2.0 Version

Totally rebuilt from zero, the 2.0 version represents my personal journey in the modding world and 3d modeling.

Full race configuration, in compliance with appllication K FIA regulations, pre '66 touring car racing.
125HP and 140NM of torque. Full roll cage, racing suspensions and dampers, LSD and rear ARB fitted, all according to period correct specs. Easy and fun to drive, but difficult to master!

Detailed 3d model, openable doors, sound recorded from a real cooper S. Almost real suspension work and travel ( back emultated, as it's a trailing arm system), torque data from real rolling tests.
Fully working wipers, lights, indicators and all dash lights and gauges.

Big thanks to @Kyuubeey for the perfect work on physics, suspensions and tire model, and a lot of valuable info.

Big thanks to @luathas, for the big help with a lot of parts ( mirrors, handbrake, etc. ) a lot of mapping and quality control, testing, and the super super SOUND.

Hi I'm a sim beginner and I only use Assetto Corsa, this Mini is fantastic also the sound is damn realistic, the only thing I found to fix is the rear toe too too negative
Amazing from the inside to out. Didn't miss a detail. The sound is fine and the comment reviewer below is the typical RF2 weirdo that keeps thinning the RF2 community out.
Horrendous unrealistic sound, does nothing that the rFactor 2 version doesn't do better.
Well thanks anyway! Tbh sound is recorded both internally and exterior front and back from a real cooper, and actually the model in rf2 is the same
Best AC mod ever
Hands down the best and most accurate Mini I have ever driven in a sim. The loud transmission whine might be accurate as well, but for me it's a bit too loud and makes it difficult to hear the engine rpms. CM can swap the sounds from another car quite easily, so that is sorted.

If you're feeling down, take this, choose a twisty track or something suitable for vintage touring cars, and then throw it against Pessio's Scorpion TC Rad and A3DR's Honda S800 RSC.
Will make your day 100% :)
Awesome cars to race. Excellent modeling, wide attention to details, so realism and imersion are over the top. Typical handling and well translated here. A ton of fun, thank you very much for the quality work and most of all for sharing it with us.
excellent work! I think the whine from those straight cut gears is pretty much bang on.. Having owned many Mini,s in my huge amount of years on this planet This is the next best thing to actually driving one for immersion. cant imagine how many hours you put into this but glad you did ! Many thanks for your effort..
This is lovely
It's such a great drive, and looks amazing
thank you
excellent work!
Best of the Best - well done
This has to be the ultimate Mini mod, for any game, ever.
Really like how those mini models handle. Very well implemented
nice mod
Great mod! The handling of the car is very realistic! The sound is the only negative thing! I have several Mini's and none sounds liek that! The gearbox straight cut gears do not sound so loud when accelerating and the enigne sound is also a bit different. I can't find much similarities between this car sounds and the real life car sounds. That's why I don't give 5 stars.
Really enjoyed taking this for a spin.
