最新消息 MINI GP3 – NEW ADDITION TO F56 FAMILY

MINI GP3 – NEW ADDITION TO F56 FAMILY

If you know TAROX you will know we love MINI’s. It goes without saying we love the original Austin but since the brands re-launch in 2001 as a sub brand of BMW we have owned and developed parts for ever single variation.

If you know TAROX you will know we love MINI’s. It goes without saying we love the original Austin but since the brands re-launch in 2001 as a sub brand of BMW we have owned and developed parts for every single variation.

如果你了解TAROX,你就會知道我們喜歡MINI的。雖然說我們喜歡原來的Austin,但自從MINI在2001年作為BMW的子品牌重新推出後,我們為每一個變化開發了零件。

We were pretty blown away by the very first Cooper S back in 2002. We shortened the pulley on the supercharger ran a Supersprint exhaust developed many different brake kits as customers came to use with different wheels – clearance was always an issue with R53 wheels. 
Our MINI was a lot of fun and fast but the at this point they only really had a cult following but never quite established itself as a ‘proper’ tuner car until it started to become bigger and faster with the R56 and then really found a wider tuning audience with the F56 chassis which was the first full BMW car and was in Cooper S and JCW is very quick and accomplished car – the GP3 takes it a step on again.

我們早在2002年就被第一台Cooper S震撼到了。我們縮短了增壓器上的皮帶輪,使用了Supersprint的排氣系統,開發出許多不同的煞車套件,因為客戶開始使用不同的煞車套件一直是R53車輪的問題。MINI在駕駛上既有趣又刺激,在這一點上他們受到了狂熱的追捧,但直到R56變得越來越大,速度越來越快,找到了合適的車身大小之後,才真正確立自己在改裝車界“合適”的地位。 F56是第一輛完整的BMW底盤汽車,曾推出Cooper S、JCW,是非常快速和完善的汽車-GP3再次邁出了一步。

We Ran a F56 JCW as test/demo car for 2 years, developing a wide range of products which helped us, with our prior commitment to the marque, to establish ourselves as the go to company for MINI performance brakes. We now find ourselves nearly 20 years into product development and we have not slowed down our commitment to ensure we have a range of products for all MINI’s. With the launch of the 3rd ‘GP’ model the GP3 BMW looked at increasing the overall braking performance by increasing the disc to 360mm from 335mm quite the increase which comes with quite the weight penalty. It wasn’t straight forward but we have managed to save an impressive 2kg per disc compered with the OEM items.

我們將F56 JCW作為測試車使用了2年,並開發了廣泛的產品,這些產品幫助我們兌現先前對品牌的承諾,確立了TAROX成為MINI高性能制動器公司的地位。如今,我們已經進入MINI的開發領域近20年,我們並沒有放慢我們對所有MINI產品提供一系列產品的承諾。隨著第三代 GP車型的發布,BMW希望通過GP3將碟盤從335mm提升到360mm來提高整體制動性能,這將帶來相當嚴重的重量提升。這並不容易,但與OEM產品相比,我們已經成功地為每個碟盤節省了2公斤的重量。


The new 360mm BMW disc when fitted to the MINI GP3 is a very tight fit. The GP3 retains a 4 piston caliper from the JCW which leaves little room between the centre mounting surface of the disc and the lowest part of the caliper. At first look it did not seem that a 2 piece disc would be possible. With some extra time with additional parts we realised it would be possible to make the disc with a alloy bell but that the bell would have to mounted using revered bobbins – so the 6mm hex head bolts come through the back of the disc and screw into special adapted nuts.

新的360MM BMW碟盤安裝到MINI GP3上時非常吻合。GP3 保留了 JCW 的 4 活塞卡鉗,在碟盤安裝表面和卡鉗的最低部分之間幾乎沒有空間。乍一看似乎不可能塞得下兩片式碟盤。我們隨著一些時間發現了一些零件,這將是有可能使碟盤與合金鐘,但鐘將不得不安裝使用受人尊敬的線軸來安裝-因此6毫米六角螺栓穿過碟片的背面,並適應螺母鎖在特殊的位置。
 
One of the more challenging applications but being open to change and having flexible design and manufacturing methods allows us to find solutions to the most difficult problems. We knew upon inspection of the OE disc that if we could achieve a 2 piece disc there would be some substantial weight saving along with the usual benefits of performance and longevity.The first pair of discs are now fitted up to UK customers Aaron Singh’s modified example running OZ wheels and Advan rubber the perfect set up to test the parts to the limit on UK tracks this spring.

這是一個極具挑戰性的應用,但開放的變化和靈活的設計和製造方法,使我們能够找到解决最困難的問題。我們知道,在檢查的OE碟盤,並獲得有效的性能和壽命優勢。首先碟盤安裝對英國客戶Aaron Singh的安裝案例使用OZ輪圈和Advan橡膠完美的設置,今年春天以測試零件對英國賽道的限制。
