Something a little different... making a bird feeder for a 90th birthday present. #fabrication #tigwelding #stainlesssteel #birdfeeder #bespoke #birdfeeders #steelwork #builtnotbought #happybirthday #edmracing
#projectnugget has had a scrub down and a few broken bits thrown in the skip. It'll need a good inspection underneath to see if it's viable to save it, especially as there's not one straight panel on the shiny side... including the roof which looks like a herd of wildebeest has walked across it! #projectnugget #imprezawrxsti #typer #sti #subaru #subienation #imprezatyper #impreza #subiefam #subarusti #braap #carcrash #imprezagc8 #gc8 #edmracing
Project 'Gramps' arriving at EDM HQ. 1995. Subaru Legacy GT TWIN Turbo wagon. Only 75k miles. Looking forward to having a tinker with this JDM oddball. #subarunation #subienation #subaru #legacy #legacybg #subie #subarulegacy #legacygt #twinturbo #boxer #ej20 #rare #rarecar #modernclassic #classiccar #subaruclassics #wrx #wrxsti #subaruwrx #subaruwrxsti #legacywagon #edmracing #edmotorsport
They both do the same job of holding thin panels together but which would you want in your race car? Left or Right. #motorsportpreparation #raceprep #racecars #edmracing #edmotorsport
If there's one area in which #vinithev8mini excels it's the bespoke fabrication! Even the floor section is a work of art having been totally formed and cut by hand before being coerced into shape. The incredible amount of custom fabrication is all tucked neatly beneath the original Mini 'shell, belying the fact a rear wheel drive BMW DCT gearbox and Subaru Spec C rear diff now live underneath. Question is - should it remain a sleeper, or shout about it's performance externally? What would you do? #powerflexbushes #vinithev8mini #fabrication #edmracing #builtnotbought #bmw #mini #subaru
#boosted #buz loaded up ready for the last track day of 2018 at Silverstone. Hopefully, and time permitting winter upgrades will include the roll cage (at long last!) and some more power, torque rather than bhp. Enjoyed driving this car this year at #magnycours #nurburgring #zandvoort #zolder and #silverstone . #boostedbuz #brz #gt86 #toyota86 #frs #subaru #toyota #scion #rwd #edmracing #trackday #trackcar #tracktool #ringtool #eurotrackday #supercharged

#vinithev8mini 's bag tank cover coming along nicely now.

Slight issue with warping following the pressings in the bag tank cover, but it came good after some fettling. #vinithev8mini #v8swap #v8conversion #v8intobmwmini #mini #r56 #miniv8 #v8mini #edmracing @powerflexbushes

No pain no gain. Tin taping the interior holes might be a dull and monotonous job, but it makes such a difference visually when it's all painted. #tintape #motorsportpreparation #properjob #raceprep #racemini #racecar #mini #r53 #r53mini #minir53 #trackday #trackcar #edmracing #edmotorsport #edm

First time in 4 years that this has seen daylight and turned a wheel. Still a great looking car. #corrado #vwcorrado #vw #16v #racecar #racecars #trackcar #tracktool #tracktoy #edmracing
Morris, our long term track weapon went off to his new home today. We've had a lot of fun in him. We're sure the new owner will too. #r53 #r53mini #mini #MINI #racemini #racecar #trackcar #tracktool #bmwmini #becausetrackcar #becauseracecar #edmracing
Lego Lenny showing off his mad lathe skilz. Making some button head alloy bolts fit inside some securing saddles. Clever little chap! #tfif #builtnotbought #modified #machining #lego #legolenny #VINI #edmracing #edmotorsport

Lego Lenny was a bit chilly today so he donned his new Powerflex jumper, went off next door and made up this water hose for #vinithev8mini @powerflexbushes #lego #fabrication #tigwelding #v8 #mini #miniv8 #s65b40 #mpower #bmw #m3v8 #rwdconversion #bigskids #r56 #r56rwd #r56v8 #minimovement #minilove #minimental #edmracing
When you're busy in the workshop but still want to see the final VLN race of 2018. Great to see all the money teams turn up with their monstrously quick cars yet the championship goes to a humble BMW e90 325i. Awesome! #vln #vln9 @vln_de #bmwe90 #325i #e90 #bmwpower #winner #teamwork @adrenalinmotorsport @therealtimschrick @lukecustoms #classwinner #winnerwinnerchickendinner #nurburgring #rootsracing #subaru #brz #edmracing #racecars #racing #motorsport
Up at Silverstone we gave this 350Z a razz round the GP circuit. For a standard road car it went quite well, however the tyres and brake discs soon proved themselves as unsuitable. (29 track miles) Easily sorted though. These machines are great value and almost track ready out of the box. #z33 #350z #nissan #nismo #trackcar #tracktoy #edmracing #350znation #z33nation
Boosted Buz on his UK track debut at the Silverstone GP circuit. A bit odd to think it's his 1st outing on British soil.

Thanks to new JCW styling, we now have much-needed room for all 3 oil coolers (engine, transmission and power steering) and for some brake ducting on Vini'. It's a little Porsche 911-esque don't ya think! πŸ’œ #powerflexbushes #powerflex #blackseries #edmracing #vinithev8mini #mini #r56 #bmw #m3 #e92 #v8 #7speed #dct #rwd #builtnotbought #trackcar #racecar #becauseracecar #bilstein #cobraseats #arpbolts #toyotyres #milltek #goodridge #forgemotorsport #siliconehoses #eibach #alcon #madeintheuk πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§οΈThanks to our friends and contributors at @bilsteinuk @arpbolts @edmracing @toyotires_uk @cobraseats @millteksport @goodridgeltd @siliconhoses @forgemotorsport @eibach_springs_uk @alconbrakes
Going forward as quickly as possible is one thing, but unless you can stop...it's pointless, and frankly pretty dangerous! 😱 Vini's being fitted up with huge 6-pot brakes from @alconbrakes to make sure we can scrub some of that speed off as quickly as possible #powerflexbushes #powerflex #blackseries #edmracing #vinithev8mini #mini #r56 #bmw #m3 #e92 #v8 #7speed #dct #rwd #builtnotbought #becausewecan #noonesaiditwouldbequickoreasy #trackcar #racecar #becauseracecar #bilstein #cobraseats #arpbolts #toyotyres #milltek #goodridge #forgemotorsport #siliconehoses #eibach #alconbrakes
Testing the new diff cover at Zandvoort went well. Awesome track enjoyed in perfect weather with the Subota. #zandvoort #subaru #toyota #brz #gt86 #supercharged #trackday #trackcar #edmracing #becausewecan #sendit @circuitzandvoort @dftrackdays @skylimitevents
Vini's custom-spec'd adjustable suspension from Bilstein and Eibach has now arrived! Proper job! πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§οΈ πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ That said, fitting non-standard SUBARU suspension to a VERY non-standard MINI is challenging to say the least 🀨 Trial bits everywhere! This is going to be one EPIC MINI though 😎 #powerflexbushes #powerflex #blackseries #edmracing #vinithev8mini #mini #r56 #bmw #m3 #e92 #v8 #7speed #dct #rwd #builtnotbought #becausewecan #noonesaiditwouldbequickoreasy #trackcar #racecar #becauseracecar #bilstein #cobraseats #arpbolts #toyotyres #milltek #goodridge #forgemotorsport #siliconehoses #eibach #alcon Thanks to our friends and contributors at @bilsteinuk @arpbolts @edmracing @toyotires_uk @cobraseats @millteksport @goodridgeltd @siliconhoses @forgemotorsport @eibach_springs_uk @alconbrakes

All done on the 86 roll cage. This car is being built for UK club rallying with disabled drivers. Being mindful of occupant access the cage design still meets new minimum MSA requirements for rally ROPS being introduced for new build rally cars from 2019. #rallycar #gt86 #brz #frs #toyota #subaru #scion #rops #rollcage #safetycage #edmracing #motorsport #trackcar #ripbillgwynne #rallylegend
πŸ“Έ Vini' the Powerflex V8 Mini got treated to a new diff pinion flange today, suitably modified with the addition of a speed trigger ring πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§οΈ #powerflexbushes #powerflex #blackseries #edmracing #vinithev8mini #mini #r56 #bmw #m3 #e92 #v8 #7speed #dct #rwd #builtnotbought #noonesaiditwouldbequickoreasy #trackcar #racecar #becauseracecar #bilstein #cobraseats #arpbolts #toyotyres #milltek #goodridge #forgemotorsport #siliconehoses #fabrication #engineering #lego
15 years ago.... Team EDM about to embark on the 2003 Rally of Cornwall. An Ex Police diesel Astra that we converted to 230bhp XE petrol power along with a Quaife straight cut dog box. A quick car that we ran for 2 seasons in the National Tarmac Rally Championship. #vauxhall #opel #astra #gsi #rallycar #rally #championship #jeep #cherokee #ford #transit #cornwall #2003 #quaife #c20xe #dogbox #itg #jenvey #throttlebodies #mbe #speedline #pirelli #corbeau #sbdmotorsport #becauserallycar #trackcar #builtnotbought #sendit #edm #edmracing
Upcycling supremo Lenny worked his magic on a rusty wheel nut to create this rather spangly speed sensor mounting. #upcycle #lego #machining #lathe #metalwork #fabrication #wheelnuts #vinithev8mini #mini #minilove #powerflex @powerflexbushes #edmracing #edmotorsport @edmracing #bmw #bmwmini
