ROO was given a suspension rebuild in late May/early June 2014 before a drive across Canada to Sault Ste. Marie, on to Mid-Ohio for the Can-Am Mini Challenge Race then on to Milwaukie for Mini Meet East Meets West and the return drive across the USA.Up front new knuckles, new wiggly pins & bushes, new rack rod ends, new adjustable lower arms with competition bushes, new adjustable tie-rods & bushes and new rubber cones (springs).At the rear, ROO got new rubber cones (springs), new knuckles, new adjustable height trumpets. And all was followed by a 4-wheel laser alignment setting camber at negative

The new rubber cones installed before heading east last June (2014) collapsed, necessitating stops to increase the rear ride height (thank goodness for adjustable trumpets). On getting home I installed Moulton Smootha-ride cones at the 4 corners.

We set out on June 2nd for the drive south to Mini Meet West 2016 in San Diego, California. Southern routing I5, crossing to 101 in northern California, then to Hwy. 1 for Monterey & Santa Barbara. ROO ran like a top even climbing albeit slowly up the east side of the Sierras to Logan Pass & into Yosemite Nat'l. Park on the way north. The Gold Trail was a beautiful drive. After a stop at Seven Ent. for a few parts & service we made our last overnight near the Oregon border, driving through Oregon & Washington to home on the last day. Another longish trip without incident!
