I have raced a Focus and Civic in the CARs D Catagory. Both made from insurance write offs. Well now I am undertaking a Suzuki Swift. I have a 1995 Hatchback. (CARs rules indicate a catagory D car must be at least 20 years old) Now I can't alter too much on the car. However I can mess with gear ratios and polish engine components. I'm not overly familiar with the Swift. My Focus got a huge performance boost from polishing components, regular engine cleaning and an oil change after every race. Would my "new" Swift get the same? I'll probably try it anyways, I'm more looking for if polishing will make it worse. (Like the Civic) Also, would any of you be able to give me ideas on gear ratios for a better top speed? I'm in a standard so acceleration I can manipulate on my own.
Thanks
Charles

First Race for the Suzuki IF ready is October 11 2016

Is this a performance rally? If so, you want the 4.39 trans from a 95+ 3 cylinder car

We call them endurance rallys. But they are almost exactly like a performance rally.
