    Ice Racer - 1991 Suzuki Swift GT - Parts or Fix

    Bump, price drop!
  2. The swift is up for sale. Many of you know the car, and many of you were in Gimli yesterday to witness me put a rod through the block - what a way to go! 1991 Suzuki Swift 1.3L DOHC GT Engine - was torn down and rebuilt by Bill Langner a few years ago Bottom end is blown - I threw a rod and theres a hole in the block. Head is still in excellent shape, engine ran very well prior to blowing New spark plugs, new cap/rfotor/plug wires. MAF cleaned, has cone filter adapter, brand new K&N cone filter GT 5-speed tranmission - newly rebuilt by Asperline Transmission (over $750 last fall) - new synchros, gears, etc. Only has 4 race days on it, and is in excellent shape Tons of other new parts: New front CV axles New front and rear brakes (calipers, pads, lines, etc.) New e-brake cables Newer battery New Oxygen Sensor New PCV Valve New HPDE Shifter bushings - nice and tight! Has 5 tractionized winter tires on rims, plus 1 non-tractionized. Front and rear push bars, full lexan windows (windshield is OEM Glass), new blue paint job (has marks from a full season of door to door action). Rear fog light, all lighting, wiper, and fan circuits on individual toggle switches in the cockpit. Car has a good roll cage, built by Bill L. Very light car, and very competitive. Was a previous winner before I bought it just over a year ago, and I had many podium finishes in the car. 1st place finisher with the right driver. Car will need an X-brace fabricated for the front end - common Swift problem. Comes with tons of spare parts - 2 transmissions, axle shafts, newer aluminum radiator. Can include a new Sparco 6-point Harness (2017 dated, FIA, good until 2022) for additional cost. No racing seat included Price: $1500 Contact: Jared Halpin @ (204) 294-0286, or pm here
  3. Excellent questions! The desire is to take groups of people to events to spectate or volunteer - volunteering is the goal but not everyone is ready to dive into that right away, although the spectating experience you get from volunteering at a station is incredible. A group of us will be organizing an official event to head down to Ojibwe Forests Rally 2018 this year in August - it is an incredible event and the VIP spectator experience is second to none. It will get everyone hooked right away And yes, we will be hosting a rallycross event this year, and working towards Stage Rally in Manitoba.

    Ice Race Event #3

    Couldn't agree more, thanks everyone!
  5. *This is the final lapping event of the year - the Portage and Gimli Ice Racing weekends are jam-packed full of racing both days, so there is no opportunity for lapping sessions. Come out and cheer on the racers instead! What? Icecross style event (driving on a frozen pond, on a track carved out of the snow, in an attempt to get around the course in the quickest times possible)Where?Lake Shirley - Off Murdock road, it's the water ski pond in the summer time --> Google Maps Link: https://goo.gl/maps/64jLxrbogHP2When?10:45 am - Driver's Meeting --> Location: TBD (We'll just congregate together)11:00 am - 4:00 pm - Ice-cross Lapping --> Let's rip!We will be doing rotations with the other two groups, so it will run in the following order: 15 min. studded, 15 min. rubber-ice, 15 min. Icecross, repeatHow Much? Entry Fee: $60 --> We pay what the ice racers pay, plain and simple What Do I Need? 1. A current SNELL “M” or “SA” helmet - SA is strongly encouraged - SA helmet mandatory for all vehicles with factory or aftermarket installed roll protection 2. WSCC Membership --> See here: http://forums.wscc.mb.ca/index.php?/topic/11103-2018-membership-process-msr/ 3. Winter Tires --> all season tires are not permitted 4. Register for the event on MotorsportReg (make sure to sign up under the Icecross saturday section --> https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/2018-wscc-ice-race-event-3-lake-shirley-winnipeg-sports-car-club-743156 5. Bring a bucket to put all your belongings in (Rubbermaid tote, for example), as you will need to remove all loose items from your vehicle before you head out on the track. 6. Vehicle must be dimensionally wider than it is tall (same restriction as Autocross) - trucks are permitted as long as they measure wider than they are tall 7. Vehicle must have functional tow points (either factory locations that are intact and easily accessible, or aftermarket hooks in place) How Do I Sign Up? Follow the links above, or text/call me at (204) 294-0286 with any questions/concerns. To answer some common questions: 1. No, you do not need any special modifications to your vehicle. You can show up with your daily-driver (Toyota Tercel, or EVO X, doesn't matter), or your full blown race-car. This is about having fun no matter what you're in, and challenging your skills as a driver. The only requirement is that the vehicle be wider than it is tall (identical rules to Autocross) 2. Do I need a WSCC membership? Yes, this is mandatory for insurance purposes 3. Where can I get a helmet? You can either borrow one from a friend (lots of people in the city that do Autocross, or HPDE that have purchased helmets in the past. OR, go to SpeedFactor or similar speed shops in the city and pick one up for yourself 4. Am I going to have fun? Um, heck yes. This event allows you to do everything you already do when we get a snow storm, but without the worry of being charged for it. 5. Will I become Ken Block / Colin McRae once I've completed this event? No... But if you keep getting involved and participating, then you absolutely have a chance! This event puts a lot of smiles on the faces of participants, so come on out and join the fun!

    Studded Winter tires for lapping

    Hey Mike, Yes, studded winter tires are allowed for lapping. DOT street legal studded tires to be specific, and it doesn't matter if they have been studded afterwards, or factory studded, assuming the studs used were street legal standard studs

    Great poster, but please correct my name!
  14. *Important Information for tomorrow!* 1. You must arrive prior to the 10:45 am driver’s meeting. The ice school will begin at 11:20 am in the trailer with Al Marcoux. 2. If you do not have a WSCC membership you have the option to purchase a daily membership for $10. For this event it will be done at the track with cash, but will be available on MSR for the next events. 3. We will run as long as people are still around, and end no later than 4:30 pm
  15. Sorry for the delay, I didn't see this post! Nope, if you show up to the first icecross day (tomorrow), there is a school put on that morning that works for us.
