Canada Mini Ice Race Car

Hey Everyone,

I picked up a 2002 mini cooper a year or so ago that was in an accident. The intention behind buy a wrecked car was to turn the car into an Ice Racer. After letting the car plug up my garage for the past year, I finally pulled the motor out of the car and gutted out the interior. (I will post pics in the new year)

I do have some question and I am leaning on my fellow mini owners for some help.

1: Is it possible to delete or bypass his "wild" BMW security system? At this point the car is under "self" lock down mode and I can not open the boot or passenger door. With the car only being used for track use I have no need for security.

2: I have the interior of the car removed and am a little worried about removing all the air bags. If I pull them all out is my little monster going to go into some sort of safe mode? or will the security system lock me out of the car again?

This is going to be a year long project as I am intending on racing the car in the 2014 ice racing series here in Northern Ontario. I will be posting pictures as I progress with the distruction / reconstruction of this ice racer. ALSO keep in mind I did cut this car and I do have a PILE of good parts that I am willing to sell, trade or donate. So feel free to hit me up if you need something.

Sorry for the long introduction / help seeking. But I am hoping I can find a few people to help guide me through my first MINI experience.

Thanks for reading and once again I will get some pics up in the new year (left me computer at work for the holidays)

MINJA!
