COOL, MAN!

Mini Spares has announced a new version of its lightweight alloy radiator which comes with a fan sensor hole and a new switch for post-1991 classic Minis. Plenty of kitcars, based on the same, included.

This is an upgrade of the popular ARP1110 radiator (which has sold 800 in 3½ years and had great success in both racing and in the Mini Spares eight-port head cars). The new radiator boasts all the same features as the ARP1110, such as:

One of these was the Grand Prix Midget of 1996 – a car that was inspired by the Grand Prix Midget racers pioneered in the USA in Los Angeles in 1933 and soon spread to other parts of the world such as Australia, New Zealand and the UK.

The Westfield GP Midget was originally developed by well-known racer, Martin Lyon and Eddy Ricketts, using a More >
