MILLINGTON ENGINES

Millington Racing Engines is a British race & rally engine manufacturer, well-known for producing the high performance, state of the art Diamond Series Engine. With over 40 years’ experience of designing, building and manufacturing competition engines, Millington Diamonds are widely known as the ultimate engine choice for motorsport applications worldwide.

The Millington Diamond is a 4 cylinder, all alloy, 16 valve engine but unlike other naturally aspirated competition units, the Diamond Series is a purpose built race/rally engine. Whereas high production, road based engines are heavily modified to extract every last unit of power, the Diamond reliably generates a tremendous spread of torque and power

The Millington Diamond Series II engine can be supplied in variants from 2.0L to 2.8, in tarmac, gravel, circuit or hill climb trim

MINILITE WHEELS

The original Minilite wheel, probably the most successful competition wheel of the 1960’s and 70’s. Originally developed as a magnesium competition wheel for the then revolutionary new Austin ‘Mini’, its success meant that it was soon to be seen on many of the serious race and rally cars of that era including the Works Escorts Mk1 and Mk2. A new iconic style was born, and to this day, all genuine Minilite wheels are made to that original classic design. Manufactured exclusively at the Minilite factory in the UK, Minilite wheels are ‘Low-Pressure’ die cast, in high grade aluminium alloy, CNC machined, 100% pressure tested, and finally powder coated for maximum protection.

The original Minilite wheels are supplied as standard on MST Cars Mk1 and Mk2 as a 13” wheel option

TRACTIVE SUSPENSION

Tractive Suspension have worked exclusively with MST Cars to develop a bespoke Active Suspension System for use in both the Mk1 and Mk2. This allows the driver to make on-the-move adjustments to the suspension.

Supplied in Touring Line specification to utilise OEM top mounts and developed as a Standalone application, utilising the unique TracTive Digital Driver Interface, this gives you independent control of front and rear damping, mid-corner roll and pitch during corner entry, braking and acceleration – all from the comfort of your cockpit, using our Driver Interface touchscreen controller.

ACE is compared to existing “passive” suspension systems. ACE has an intuitive ability to react to changing road surfaces and conditions. Bumps and compressions mid-corner will be absorbed before you have time to react, easily holding the desired line through a series of high-speed corners without being deflected offline.

The ACE semi-active suspension, initially developed and used extensively on the Porsche 911 models is now available for the classic rear wheel drive Escort Mk1 and Mk2
