    If the seats have sides (I cant tell from the photos and vid), maybe pull them out and build your own seat? Croc has a thread somewhere here on how to do that, I think. Stock Caterham seats are just...

    That's an interesting fact about my steering rack, Bruce, one I didn't know. As it happens, I have had a brand new wide-track steering rack in the basement, gathering dust for 10 years. I don't think...

    The other wild card, I have discovered, is that with very minimal tire/fender clearance, wind pressure at high speeds will shove the fender onto the tire and cause significant rubbing. My efforts at...

    Here is a shot of my custom flared-out roll cage. As you can see, it allows for some crush space before a driver compartment intrusion can occur. Seem like all se7en cages should be designed this way?
