Another good result for the Part-Box Swift (Jamie Exton) placing 3rd out of 7 competitors. considering all the changes that were made throughout the season i think we have had a vast amount of positive outcomes. earlier in the season there was a clip missing inside the sequential shifter and we were unable to finish this event. After fixing the problem we then went on to place second on numerous occasions. The Swift really progressed throughout the season, then we decided to change the ECU From the DTA Fast S60PRO to a Typhoon 2, the reason for the change was that the DTA was not compatible with the the VVTI and the Typhoon is compatible. when the Typhoon 2 was first fitted we were not able to use the clutchless shifts as the cut off switch had to be changed. We thought this might affect the times at the event on the 29th August 2015, going on to place second we found the car was smoother with the new ECU and still enable us to perform some quick times, also another award we recieve was best prepared car whcih was a very rewarding trophy. Onto the last event were we manage to change the switch and get the fuel cut working, this enable us to plug into the car and adjust the fuel cut which made the shift even fast than it was originally, giving us a positive outlook on the last event and placing in 3rd position.
Now the season is over we are going to be sending the Swift back to SW Motorsport, as they are assembling and tuning our new 1.6 engine with the new AT Power throttle bodies, the engine will also be fitted with the following forged parts, Wiseco piston, Bridgeway conrods, Kelford cams and Supertech Valves. We are hoping to achieve around 200BHP out of the new engine. This engine will run with all the existing upgrade such as the Cusco LSD, SQS sequential shifter with dog gears, Piper 4 branch stainless manifold / exhaust system, HKS Oil filter, Koyo Radiator, Cusco catch tank, AP Racing competition big brake kit, Cusco suspension, Whiteline anti-roll bars, Rays wheels, Magnecor leads, Sparco seats, TRS Harnesses and Cusco Roll cage.
Great outcome from the Part-Box Swift (Jamie Exton) placeing second and also achieveing best prepared car. Although the Fuel Cut was not working on the Sequential shifter which meant having to engage the clutch to change gear, Jamie still managed to get a lap of 66.20. This is a very positive outcome as the clutchless gear change would make a vast different in shift changes. So from the performance i would say the change of the ECU was very positive, it has made the acceleration of the car slightly quicker, which is a big help out of corners.
As we proceed to the final event SDCC Single Lap. It is looking positive with the car running smoothly and progressing very well. Again the parts that make this car are as followed: SQS Dog box with sequential shifter, Cusco Differential, Piper 4 branch stainless manifold / exhaust system, HKS Oil filter, Koyo Radiator, Cusco catch tank, AP Racing competition big brake kit, Cusco Street Zero-A suspension and Top Mounts , Whiteline anti-roll bars, Rays wheels, Sparco seats, TRS Harnesses and Cusco Roll cage.
As The Part-Box Suzuki Swift progresses positively through the season. After the previous event at Curborough on the 12th July 2015, we decided to change the ECU from a DTA fast S60PRO which we were using to a Specialist Components Typhoon 2, reason being is the DTA fast S60PRO wa s not compatible with the VVT, so we are hoping to see a slightly different and hopefully better performance now the VVT is enabled with the Typhoon 2 ECU.
Another exciting change for the Suzuki swift next year. We are currently having another engine built, which will be a 1.6l. It is going to be fitted with a new set of specially made AT Power throttle bodies, K1 Rod, Wiseco High Compression Pistons, a lightened / balanced and knife edged standard crank, Kelford Race Cams (230-c) 291 IN / 275 EX, king racing bearing, Cometic head gasket, monster sport oil pan baffle and a mishimoto oil cooler.
With the new engine we will be aiming to get around the 200BHP mark. All the tuning and engine building will be done by SW Motorsport who recently fitted the SQS Dog Box and Sequential shifter and mapped the current engine (Based in Scotland). The new engine is going to be using these existing parts, SQS Dog box with sequential shifter, Cusco Differential, Piper 4 branch stainless manifold / exhaust system, HKS Oil filter, Koyo Radiator, Cusco catch tank, AP Racing competition big brake kit, Cusco suspension, Whiteline anti-roll bars, Rays wheels, Sparco seats, TRS Harnesses and Cusco Roll cage

We’re getting more and more requests for winter wheels and tyres to fit Evos and in particular to fit over their big brakes. It’s not a problem though, as our good friends at Compomotive have wheels that will fit and clear the Brembo brakes – 16″ (x5, 5.5 or 6.0) for Evo 5~9 and 17″x7.0 to clear the Evo X’s standard brakes. We can also supply winter tyres too. Our friends in Germany have to fit winter tyres, or they can have problems with insurance or in case of a collision. If we keep getting winters like this year and last, maybe we should all start to think about having 2 x sets of wheels & tyres. One of our dealers in Germany offers a Wheel/Tyre Hotel service, with racks and racks up to the rafters of wheel/tyre sets, dutifully stored and exchanged with the seasons!
Suggested tyre sizes are;
Evo 5~9, OE is 225/45R17, so aim for 205/55R16 on a 16×6.0/6.5/7.0
Evo X, OE is 245/40R18, so aim for 225/50R17 on 17×7.0
Demand of wheels and tyres has been very high, so not always available next day, can be 7~14 days.
Remember the winter tyres are not just for snow, they are beneficial all winter, especially when the temperatures drop below +7°C, when their higher rubber content offers much better grip than summer tyres. But they still struggle on ice – then you need studs, ideally!
On Wednesday, several Co-ordSport staff attended the Williams F1 partner day at the iconic Silverstone race track, representing their partners RAYS Wheels, which are fitted to all Williams F1 cars. The event was a chance for friends and partners of Williams F1 to enjoy an exclusive day of access-all-areas activities and for team personnel to personally thank them for their continued support.
Left to right: Valtteri Bottas, Paul Evans, Bruno Senna, Craig Clarke, Suzie Wolff, Aaron Moore, Paul Dolan and Pastor Maldonado.
Highlights included Pastor Maldonado, Bruno Senna and Valtteri Bottas driving two of the most legendary cars in Williams’ history – the FW08 that took Keke Rosberg to the driver’s title in 1982 and the FW18 that saw Damon Hill clinch the championship in 1996. Also, Williams F1 Development Driver Susie Wolff driving the FW33, her first time at the wheel of a Formula One car.
Staff got to meet all the drivers, were taken round the Silverstone track by the drivers in souped-up Renault hatchbacks and even had a practice changing the wheels (RAYS of course!) in the pit stop challenge. Paul Dolan and Paul Evans managed a respectable 3.9 seconds, although are not expecting a call from the team any time soon!
