The quest to build one of the world's fastest Mini's continues...
In episode 11 of Project Binky, we grapple with bumpsteer and Ackermann angles, we wrestle with the gear-shift mechanism, sort out the passenger seat and fit the handbrake. And we drink tea of course.

Hey, loving the project. Haven't seen all the episodes yet and know this one is 4 years old, but is that still how the steering rod ends are attached to the struts? Worried you might end up with vague / unpredictable steering if there's too much flex from steering arm to bearing...

Problem with the build... Nick has 99 solutions that will all work perfectly and 3 that are entirely over engineered and full future proof for reliability, accessibility and effectivity... GOTTA LOVE IT!!! :D

Billybob09871 Vuosi sitten
Setting Ackermann angles is done by positioning the track arm end mount in relation to the pivot of the hub, typical in a manner to where they make a line heading towards the centre of the rear axle. As the pivot of the hub is a line between the ball joint at the bottom and the suspension top mount, it means the line actually angles inboard as it goes up, so by mounting the track end higher the correct location will be further in, also as the wheelbase has been shortened this will also make it further in, so you might actually have got lucky and found the right place by accident

The suspension and engine parts being used are patterns, they'll restore or replace them for final assembly.
Robert Rishel

So... all that fabulous fabrication work and you’re using knackered out old suspension parts which are not easily replaceable? You should get fresh suspension and brake parts! And these high wear items should be off the shelf replaceable.... you have that option now....

Proper Ackermann geometry is why the steering wheel with self-straighten after reversing out of your driveway when you start going forward.
Billybob09871 Vuosi sitten
No that's caster. Ackermann angle is used to make sure the inside wheel turns more than the outside wheel turning to prevent wheel scrub, as they said in this video. Caster is the vertical angle of the mountings of the suspension and basically creates a situation where the vehicle has to lift slightly when you turn, this makes gravity straighten the car

I'm in pain watching this... it would NEVER EVER pass engineering for it's road worthy here in Australia. You just can't use fully customised stuff like that, you have to be able to buy replacement components for these consumable items that wear over time and will on occasion need replacing.

16:22 I drive a 356 Porsche; looks good to me! And the time spent on steering geometry is a curative to those TV/internet "Build your hot-rod in a half an hour!" BS sessions. Brings back memories of the 11(!) years I spent building my hot-rod 356...

Why not use a different shock that has the mounting for the steering integrated - like the Land Rover Freelander 1 does??
Albertas Agejevas

No need for atan in the schoolboy math. We can make use of the fact that for small angles, sin(α) ≈ α ≈ tan(α), so we only need to convert radians to degrees, and the calculation goes 75/4400. * 180 / 3.14159 = 0.9766, which is precise within 4 decimal places. I use this calculation all the time when setting up the wheel geometry.

I think you need to make your own custom bottom arms.. I'm guessing the front suspension is the area you have to address, again, in the episode 16.

pure genius! there must be times when you guys just want to bang your heads on Binky's chassis rails. but you always come up with a neat solution to every challenge. Seeing how much time and effort goes into solving issues like setting up the steering to minimise bumpsteer, or to check the steering Akerman, makes me wonder how those American custom builders manage to complete their cars without (apparently) giving those things s single thought..........

So I've been rewatching this, and have been trying to figure out how much of the donor mini remains. As far as I can tell, it's just the roof and windows, most of the rear seat back, and i think maybe a bit inside the car under the rear windows. And a VIN.

This is already 3 episodes behind, but I'm still wondering what's going to happen with these transverse braces on the bottom of the car.. I mean, it's almost as if they've been forgotten and you guys mentioned that chassis fabrication is basically done, but.. You're surely planning to fabricate something of your own to replace it, aren't you?

+frankgile1996 The fab on the car is basically finished but as you say, there's a few bits left to sort. Episode 15 will cover those braces you speak of. And they're luurvly. 😊

By welding new steering brackets you made them way weaker. Why do you think the engineers attach tie-rod ends right to the hub with a big meaty lever? Because the forces are enormous and in that position, you have the best leverage. Please, please please make some connections to the original holes for the tie-rod ends. Or you might end p in a ditch...

couldn't find an aswere to this in the comments, but hypothetically, if the struts needs replacing, I guess you also have to refit the brackets for the track-rods?
Michael Carey

I was wondering the same. I was fully expecting the stock suspension to be there solely for the R&D, in the hopes that an aftermarket coil over setup would be thrown in later. Doesn't look like that's an option. We shall see

Good work. But a little question is still not answered allready. If the shock absorbers broke, you have to build this construction again? So hopefully there is another pair made for replacement ;)
