    It will be ready. Could be autocrossed as it is, but I want to make sure everything is in perfect shape, so a lot of maintenance and acouple of small repairs ahead.

    I plan to build a tire carrier to be mounted on the roll bar. The 12" rims with 45 aspect tires bring the car too low to drive in the street.

    Do you autocross? If so, where and with what club?

    I autocross with PCA, NE-SVT and Track Club USA.

    "Do you autocross?"

    Sure. It is unfortunate that a plain street Seven has to run in D Mod. If a real DM showed up, it would weight 300 pounds less, have double the engine power and double the tire. Lucky there is no one doing that locally. These are fun cars for that. Drive to the "track", run, drive home.

    Similar situation here. In PCA I will be in non-Porsche, R rated tires battling anything that fits that description. In NE-SVT classification is by experience, so there I will be better off. Anyway, I just wantr to have as much fun as my limited funds can buy, and this fits the bill.

    I am a SCCA member and will do them too when they run locally.

    We have the Moore airfield in Ayer, MAssachusetts. One of the best venues in the US. We lay out over a mile long courses on the taxiways and runways. Only drawback is that the pavement is cracking, so we have to run the cone course around the worst spots. Advantage is that there are no objects to run into of you spin out.

    You look like you are barely moving? Did you stall? Need a push?

    @Anker
    That's a really nice looking Caterham. I'll be looking forward to seeing how your experiences with it play out.

    Cheers,
