I recommend putting your tyre pressure to 150 psi, removing that really heavy power steering belt that must make the crank want to snap off when going 30mph through your town, i also recomment converting it to diesel and also a huge spoiler for more downforce on your 1.0

And to obviously make it lighter and a bit quicker off the mark.... in a small engine car it makes the world of difference, specially up hill

Not sure, I actually just swapped the whole carbon out if my spares

quicker of the mark..? ditch that bloody great sub box made out of like 20mm mdf it must weigh a tonne
power to weight ratio.............?

its not the weight of the belt im concerned about jesse, its the power steering mechanism that it drives putting extra stress on the crank.

I smashed out the pre cat today, put it all back together and starts fine, havent had chance to take it out yet though.

I'm 30, just love Swifts and would much rather have a daily swift and a race swift than one fancy car.
