KW Clubsport: Mini John Cooper Works Getting The Nordschleife Treatment
Our German KW partner and Mini expert Krumm Performance developed a 300 hp strong John Cooper Works with KW Clubsport suspension kit! The motivation? Sheer driving pleasure at the Nordschleife and everywhere else!
And our partner did it! The latest JCW runs with 211 hp at the front wheels, the Krumm JCW got after installation of the so called Krumm Performance Stage III kit 300 hp and 400 Nm of max torque! The kit contains Hybrid Turbo, intercooler, Akrapovic downpipe with 100 cells metal cat, heat protection shields, intercooler air tubes without resonators, a custom exhaust system, custom intake and even the spark plugs have heat value and air gap adapted to the performance upgrade.
Via OBD optimized software the modified Turbo engine and its sensor will be monitored and the Mini expert has also installed a linear accelerator adoption. This upgrade will give you a benefit if you ride the Krumm Performance Mini. The wheel spin in 1st and 2nd gear can be much better controlled at the end of corner. Our KW partner installed also a racing clutch kit and a limited slip differential from Drexler.
For an perfect road holding Krumm installed our in rebound and compression adjustable KW Clubsport 2-way coilover kit with adaptable top mount.
While our KW coilover kit Variant 3 is also independently adjustable with 16 clicks in the rebound and 12 clicks in the compression, differs the KW Clubsport with it’s KW racing springs and a damper setting for the use of semi slick tires at a race track from the KW Variant 3 with it’s damper setting for street tires. By the way, the Krumm Mini already driven the BTG (Bridge to Gantry) at the Nordschleife in 7:38,12 min with a smaller performance kit.
Additionally Krumm Performance installed Powerflex bushings and changed the original mounted wheels against ATS GTR rims in 17 x 8″ with Dunlop Direzza 03G tires in 215/45 R17.
The Krumm Performance racing brake system is made of AP 4-pistons calibres (weight of only 2.6 kg each) with 330 x 32 mm discs.
Further modifications are a Challenge lip, diffuser, Recaro SPG XL bucket seats, CAE Ultra Shifter, OMP Ultraleggero steering wheel, Schroth harness and a Wiechers clubsport rollover bar.
