    Default Aeroscreen question

    I have a seven clone built to the 442 spec. Tennessee doesnít require a windshield and I want to run a aeroscreen. Can anyone tell me which one will fit a plus 4 chassis. Thanks

    Hi. There are only 2 aeroscreen models commonly available for the Caterham chassis. Regular "series 3" version and the SV, which is the wider/longer chassis.

    If I recall the 442 is dimentionally different from the book by 4 inches wider, but the book is also not the same dimentions as the S3. it's close but I don't believe it's the same.

    The SV model aero screen will be your best bet, but some fitting will likely be required.

    You might also consider something like Brooklands screens. Or maybe fabricate some lexan tabs to direct the air flow on the driver's side.

    You can follow Dave Struves build for his Aeroscreen experience

    He had to buy two different styles because first one had a fit issue

    Not sure how close dimensions would be, but I used an aero screen from aerodynamix for my Stalker.
