Mini Cooper (Fireball Tim Racing) Dragster
|Mini showed up to Hot Import Nights in Phoenix with their new Mini Dragster. The cooper is a bad mo-fo. The car is yet to make its debut pass, although rumors that it ran 12's at HIN have been floating around - they are false, as the car didn't race.|
|The Mini Cooper S Dragster's body is composed mostly of carbon fiber, aiding in weight reduction. The Cooper S is the result of a collaboration between Fireball Tim Racing and Mini USA. The Fireball Mini puts out 500 horsepower, and weighs a meager 1700 pounds.|
Fireball Tim's blog states that the Mini uses a twin-charger motor. I am not aware if it is twin turbochargers... a turbo/supercharger combo, or a sequential setup of some kind. It is hard to tell from the under-hood photo.
If you have any details on the specifics of the setup, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any information.
