Sneed4Speed has been racing the "new" BMW MINI Cooper since 2006.  Back then, there were no heavy duty race or Mini cooper performance parts available for a car so brand new and like nothing else on the market.  

It soon became obvious that while the new MINI had great handling, looks and power, it was not entirely bred for the track.  Sneed4Speed started by creating a front mount external oil cooler for the cars.  As the engine compartment is very tight in MINIs, oil temperatures would raise to engine damaging levels while on track. The Sneed4Speed oil cooler kit solved that problem allowing MINIs to run full track sessions without over heating their engine oil.  

Once the engine oil temperatures were under control the next weak link in the new MINI was the front brakes.  They were undersized and overheated quickly.  Sneed4Speed developed a brake cooler kit that forced air from the front bumper through flexible hoses into proprietary brackets mounted on the wheel hub to blow the air directly into the brake rotor ,Best Sti Shift knob, and cool the brake system.  The kit worked very well, reducing peak temperatures by over 500F!
