    I tried to rent a U-Haul once and was turned down because they didn't really know what a Caterham was and didn't want to take a chance that there would be problems. My solution was to call a separate...

    Caterham lug nut size

    Various parts went missing when the wheel (literally) "fell off" last Fall. It turns out I need 4 lug nuts as well as various and sundry other parts. I went to Autozone today and showed them the lug...

    Thx Croc. Those don't look like the right items. But, between Bruce Beachman and Innominatus (who is buying up all of Jon Nelson's leftover Cat USA inventory), I should soon have it sorted. Next up...

    At our annual USA7S event at NJMP, the S1's have no trouble keeping up with similarly powered Caterhams and Birkins. Just saying, tho it is a bit more polished than they are, it is just as competent...

    Very good dyno #'s for a stock Zetec. Not that much less than my SVT (hp 155, torque 143).

    Thx Croc, I will see what I can learn. Caterham seems to only sell the "uprated rear brake kit" as a group of parts, so I am not sure if the rotor has a part #. I will ask Bruce Beachman, who I...

    Thx Inn, I will await your verifying that it is, indeed, the rare, bespoke, long rumored, seldom seen, unicorn, Caterham uprated rear brake rotor:).

    I have a dB app on my I-phone. Typically, my home db is under 40. At a recent crowded office holiday party in a small venue it was spiking at 115, with no music, just yakking.

    I find that particular Caterham pretty tempting as well:). Maybe they will sell it for less, it's been there a while?

    Unlike most sports/sporty cars, Caterhams hold their value...

    Maybe Jon should list his parts inventory for sale here? Most of us Caterham owners like to keep a spare or 2 of everything, so when something breaks, we aren't frustrated by the typical Caterham...
