    The "smoke" was actually oil dry. Most drivers steered around it, a few(cough, cough) blasted thru it.

    My Accusump has an off/on switch. So when the 2 qt Accusump tank is full, I can shut it off and the oil stays put. If I switch it on, the psi valve releases the extra oil when psi is below 30 (like...

    Thx Ferdl. My Accusump kicks on when oil pressure drops below 30. I tried using a 50 psi valve and since pressure was frequently below 50, all that did was flood the engine with oil, which then...

    Wear a wider shoe? Most of us have too little room in the pedal box and wish we had your problem:).

    Ferdl:

    What spec(size/mfg) oil cooler? In front or behind the radiator? As you note, we have same engine and Accusump. But I am getting much lower oil pressures than you, once warmed up.

    My...

    Zetec engine: oil weight question

    Those who attended the NJMP event last weekend know that I was able to measure my Zetec's oil level by looking at the amount of oil deposited on my pant legs and pedal box(:. Fortunately, it got...

    Wow, so much posturing by the Duratec owners: it's like we Zetec owners present no threat:)! I will be lurking in the weeds next year (hopefully not literally....), as I know my fellow Zetec owners...

    John B: I have that set up so be prepared to have your helmet try to suck your head off your neck with the aeroscreen! If you can find a helmet with down force, buy it. At a measly 116 mph (per Norm...

    Norm has a Caterham S3. He has been autocrossing 50+ years but the first 11 were in a Plymouth Barracuda.

    He put the first Zetec engine in a Caterham in the USA (replacing his X-flow). This...

    Back to herding cats: the woman holding the kitty in the photo in post 125 (Vovchandar's GF) got a number of se7ens owners and NJMP staff to literally herd a cat. Everyone was scrambling like around...

    BTW: the orange car in post#111 is a Westfield with, obviously, Westfield seats. It has a Miata power train. I first saw it at the se7ens event at Tail of the Dragon in 2007. Even with its modest 1.6...

    I join the others with my annual kudos to Tom (YellowSS) and Croc (Mike), for all the background work they do to make this annual event happen, and for being the consummate hosts. This was the...

    Leaving now for the event. Hope to travel East Coast/I-95 late tonight and avoid some of the predictable Baltimore/Wilmington travel/parking lot. Will sleep-in Fri a.m., and arrive at the track...

    Tom:
    The Accusump doesn't solve a hot oil issue, it solves a low pressure oil issue. With our race cars, on super grippy tires, on high speed, banked, 90+ degree turns (like on the Lightening track...

    In post #49 of this thread it notes that all non-driving guests must be registered to visit and watch this event. The cost is $50 per guest, per day, and that includes breakfast and lunch. What if a...

    I did the oil change and, unfortunately, my Accusump's solenoid is only working sporadically. So I added a total of 5 quarts of new oil BUT, I dont know how much stayed stuck in the Accusump. I...

    I have the total as 5.28 counting the 2 in the Accusump (3.28+2). But I am old and my brain isn't trustworthy. I am doing an oil change in a few hours, so will keep track of exact amounts and will...

    The 5.28 quarts sounds right. I have your set up. Once I have the car level and warmed up, I rev to 2K, and shut it off. At that higher RPM, the Accusump is supposed to be full. So you get a true...

    I have never had any under steer in either of my Caterhams. And never had to do anything to trick the front into gripping. Maybe, in addition to Crocs comments, add more negative camber to the front...

    We ordered a Clutch Masters clutch also. First one they sent didn't meet spec so they redid it (delay, delay, delay). We had the flywheel resurfaced. Works like a charm now, though is much stiffer...

    Aardappel:

    FWIW: my 95 hp X-Flow Caterham tended to lap about as fast as stock Elises. We did it very differently(I was always much slower on the straights, faster everywhere else). My 160 hp...

    As Josh (Colorado7er) says in post #9, and as Croc notes, the CSR is available per special order. Josh is also a new Caterham dealer(Rocky Mountain Caterham), though he and his family are long time,...
