Not bad, I find both cars drive similar to a road going mini although I would say they are a bit under powered. The standard version laps about a second faster around snetterton 200 than a 1098cc mini grand 24 hour car, I would say that the performance of the S works car is about what I would expect from the standard version.

The handling is a little bit too stable on both versions, I think there should be more lift-off oversteer.

Looking forward to the miglia version, would you consider working on a mighty mini version as well?
Outstanding mod!! Thanks!!!
Love this mod, it has very unique handling characteristics, so fun to chuck about on track. Tried it out at Brands Hatch Indy with a short review, take a look here :-


Looks awesome, very detailed and easy on the eye.

A worthy addition to any AC garage I think.
AMAZING LOVE IT. cant wait for mini miglia!! :)
Doesnt seem to work online, can you fix? ty.
Car works online, only del data folder from car folder- i dont delete data folder- maybe people edit and fix something
Really fun little car. I feel the sound isn't a match to the real world car other than that keep up the good work.
Nice upgrade! No tail lights?
Absolutely awesome to drive. Many thanks for your great mod.
so much fun. you should also add some body versions like a "micro" van, a pickup, etc. and yes, those exists ;) here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Autos/comments/20wh46/saw_a_classic_mini_cooper_estate_today_did_mini/ https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2013/04/02/hemmings-find-of-the-day-1969-mini-cooper-s-pickup/ I think that it will be even funnier :)
Wow pickup! Nice but i think next update of mini include migila race car
Throwing this thing around Le Mans is way more fun than you'd think :)
Good job thank you
I had an Austin Mini with the 1.0 and the shortest speedshift of the road version (pont 3.65 :1) and on 12" wheels (full stock), it was an great car... !
I have enjoy to find this mod, the (great) sound and the karting spirit of the Mini !
Now, it would be perfect if you can proposed other versions of Mini :-D :-P (or just differents setup of pont ?)
For example the same version of my Mini, it was very nervous (the 4th gear up to 150 kph at 6000 rpm:-D) and little more performing than this 1.3 on 13" :-P
I like to find a fun car with poor performances in a game, it's difficult.. (i'd tried to work a Mini 1.0 45 bhp on GT Legends but the game didn't accept this low power ^^)
I have make the Smart Roadster mod for GTR Evolution too.

Great job and sorry if my english isn't perfect ^^
The last version I used was 0.3. My complaint with that version was how unstable the car was. I have a 1978 MINI with a 1098cc and 13 inch wheels, and it handles much better than the 0.3 models. I have to say, this 1.0A update is right on point! Excellent work!
Bodywork is ok but power is more than down for this nice car. Not acceptable. 10-20hp? I drove a MINI like this one and it goes much faster in reality.
Power is close to real.thx for 2 star- this reminds me that begging is stupidity :)
Look's very well but animation on hand wich change gear aren't ok. Sometimes hard rest on the level.
And speed on 4th gear? 4L of petrol and full throttle on straight Dottinger (Nordschleife) the car slow down!!!
Never saw a car downhill slower !!

To improve the dashboard because it is not readable, you have to lower yourself to see the top of the instruments.
Probably you never seen mini , its small and slow car with zero ergonomy
Great mod, fun to handle and perfect to learn new tracks. The AI racers seem to have problems however - they drive forward a few meters and then stop dead! It'd be nice if this gets fixed in the next update as I'd love to have some races against other Minis!
Thanks a lot for this! You have captured the spirit of the classic Mini beautifuly. Good training tool, a real momentum car.

Maybe a bit too much grip? At least if it is on period correct tyres. On modern sports tyres it is pobably good as is.
Great job!
grazie ;)
Thanks, had fun on the narrow twisty road of lake louise, any plans for a beefed up version?
Wow, great mod! S1 version planned? Would be awesome.. ;-)
Better and better...
Nice update ;)
Top work , its great fun , thanks a lot
So glad to see this car brought up to a 1.0 release. Nice improvements to a must-have car. I mean, what's a driving simulator without a Mini?
Great graphics and physics. Thank you.
Well done!
