2007 Mini Cooper S: Blipping Awesome!

May 21, 2008

I think the Mini is my favorite car in our long term test group to drive for one reason only:

The thing is so dang easy to blip shift

I'm not as good as the others on staff with the finer techniques of driving, but I try to practice my blip shifting while in traffic and around town. The Mini has a pretty responsive motor to rev it up, an easy throw gear, the pedals are nicely spaced apart and the clutch has a nice catch point. It's so easy it nearly over inflates your confidence.

s you come to a corner, it's a sweet feeling. You can almost imagine you're Lewis Hamilton speeding through Monaco...
