    NS = engine Not Supplied.
    I don't have the decoder but it's been posted here before. Maybe Croc will add it?

    Sorry for the further hijack Bruce. Many of us here seem to have a mild case (or worse) of ADD.

    Back to this lovely 310SV. How hard (or, how much $) is it to add power? Are there any standard...

    Interesting Croc. I have to say I am not impressed with the Caterham cage. It hugs the contours of the car so there is no "crush" zone. My Caterham's custom cage sticks out 6-8" on the driver's side...

    Shane: You must be referring to the massive 4 wheel, flat spotting lock-up I applied, to the accompaniment of clouds of blinding, billowing tire smoke, in an effort not to be mowed down by Croc's...

    Lotsats: I don't think so. Based on my ever worsening "memory": the Caterham FIA bar weighs 31 lbs, the standard bar weighs 11 lbs. I weighed both on my bathroom scale many years ago. So, it is much...

    I DO deserve more power Croc, ask anyone who has raced with me:)!

    And I agree that the price for this 310 SV is a deal. I recall when you paid that much for a Caterham kit, that you then had to...

    It seems Caterham sells 2 types of belts and the FIA belts, with their expiration date tags, are required by many track organizers. The belts you reference may not have expiration dates on them. If...

    Hi Bruce: What is a ballpark price for a turnkey version of this (you supply the 310 version of the 280 Sigma 1.6 engine, and have your supplier install it and you do all of the other assembly and...

    Skip: Caterham, Morgan, Ginetta, etc., have been using the MX-5 gearbox for a few years. Apparently it was a combination of the T9 becoming scarce and the MX5 being both available and more reliable...

    Nice to see that Croc isn't the only one having bucket list experiences. What a great write-up!

    I like the custom cone-collector/storage unit combo. Original thinking. A whole lotta car for someone.

    And on a se7en, that penultimate lap will be years (decades?) after you buy them. For street use or as a rain tire for track work, use them as is. If you want them to be primarily for dry track use,...

    Actually, I mis-spoke, they are Toyo RA1's. They are still available, AFAIK. They last forever and seem to get more grip, not less, with age. The Toyo R888Rs have become more popular than the RA1's,...

    Wow, +10lbs! So what was your final cold pressure level, 28? Was it all 4 corners? I had R888's which I credit for putting me in the tire wall at Mid-O. I loved the Toyo R1's, I have a set of R888R's...

    Lots of dubious choices here. No Jeep? No Ford Explorer (which started the SUV revolution that continues), no Dodge mini-van (which started that seismic automobile trend). The Opel GT but no 'Vettes...

    So true. My old Zetec SVT engine, which made more power than my just-rebuilt SVT, now has a new, high-end oil pump. Since low oil pressure was my motivation for replacing it, I might put it back in...

    Thx Jim. I was unable to locate a pre-wired connector and the dealer told me there was none. But, based on your post, I just now googled some more and found a how-to-find-it guide on a Touareg forum....
