    Good job on your lap times Croc, at least in the dry! Even in the dry, the cold weather probably cost you some seconds since your tires likely never got fully warmed up. I dont see the Ferrari 275...

    Rain is bad, sleet is worse! Suddenly the enclosed cars make a lot of sense. At least the G-forces will be modest! Have fun tippy-toeing around the track. You will be soaked. What is your non-track...

    Folks who track and or auto-X their se7ens sometimes attach the rear fenders with plastic fasteners. Then, when the inevitable offroad meeting with a tire wall, or a cone collision occurs, the fender...

    Well, then the least you can do is send us some photos from Spa next week:). I will be waiting.

    If the car was supplied to a Caterham dealer close to Boston, that would be Sevens and Elans. They have moved their (one man) operation to St Augustine Fl, where the owner, Chris Tchorznicki, has a...

    I went thru starter-replacement hell on my original X-flow. I became convinced that Caterham uses a different starter, on every car they build, just to make it interesting. I eventually had mine...

    As I mentioned in an earlier post, Q-Silver told me a few months ago that they were no longer building the MicaelD spec, high hp Zetec. Instead, they offer just a basic rebuild. AND, anyway, my...

    You will also need to determine why the engine went kaput. Typically, it is oil starvation issues caused by GG-forces generated by sticky tires and pushing the limit, over and over, on the track....

    When I contacted Quick Silver a few months ago they said the guy that built MichaelD's 220 hp Zetec was no longer there and that they were doing basically stock rebuilds.

    Aha, mystery solved! Not sure how I missed the US one but, given it is of nearly identical spec but 1/2 the price, I'd favor the US version! I think it mostly boils down to what "needs work" means,...

    Keep in mind that a street oriented Caterham is still just a slightly civilized race car. And in my experience, a street Cat is easier to drive on the track than a full tilt race prepped Cat (I have...

    I have to say, the new BMW's have (mostly) taken a page from Acura's playbook: give the car styling that is as bland, inoffensive and generic as possible. Such a shame. Compare to Audi, which somehow...

    The headers and exhaust are beautiful! Nice that the Duratec dumps the exhaust out on the passenger side (in the states) and not the driver's side (Unlike the Zetec and X-Flow). It will be...

    It makes sense to have spare "consumables". But I doubt very much that you will wear the rear brakes, or even the fronts, enough to need replacement, even after years of track days. One of the nicest...

    Bob:
    Welcome back! I guess the generic-looking silver "super car" at the bottom is an Acura NSX? Without the "calipers" logo, it could be almost anything. Unlike the original NSX.

    My 135 hp X-Flow was advertised as about 6" 0-60 mph. There is a pretty big real world difference between the 135 hp X-flow and the 140 hp base Zetec. Mostly because the 135 hp seems to have been a...
