    I love touring in the Westfield and have done well over 10k miles that way. I'm definitely up for adding to the total.

    As for parts potentially missing...that never happens. Never!

    Sounds good to me. There are several enjoyable roads a little east of the Beachman Racing shop. As for "crazy folks", that should cover just about everyone on this forum.

    Cem Congrats on the new car and welcome. I have a Sadev sequential mated to a Duratec with about the same HP as your 620R, althought mine is normally aspirated. You will love it. It's a great gearbox and no lift upshifts are thrilling as the power just keeps coming. But mine also does rev matching downshifts too but I do have to lift for those If you haven't driven a 7 with 300+ hp you are in for an experience.

    BTW I had a new clutch installed this winter and since the gearbox was out, I sent it to Sadev for a refresh. Great service, turned it around in two days. I had the car out this Past Sunday and I'm still smiling. Had a slight issue during the first session, where it got stuck in 6th gear, but you won't have that problem. Luckily it was easily corrected back in the pits. Good Luck with yours. Tom

    We (Time Machines Motorsports) supplied the 620R to Park Place for Cem. The car is a roller and the install is being done by a mechanic (don't call him a "tech") that I have worked with for 35 years and trust. We would have gladly supplied it as a roller but Park Place wanted it "turn key". I was at the factory in March (just made it back in before the shutdown) and was told the SADEV sequential is light years ahead of the Quaife unit....and three times the price!

    Enjoy!

    Hey Rick, nice to meet you and thanks for sharing more context. My interaction has been limited to Park Place so far, but great to hear from you!
    You do know i'm counting days to get this car... and hoping for maybe 4th of July week?

    So i do have two questions asks for you:
    - You gotta share some pictures with us on how the build is going?!
    - When the car is done, before you ship it... i expect you give it a go... push it hard, have fun... and do share on this thread how the car feels! (Hey if you have video of a few powerslides that will put a smile on my face as-well while i wait)

    As i wait, i'll continue playing with my Lego caterham which this will be identical to

    Cheers,
    -Cem

    We will have a better feel for completion this week. The shop doing the install has completed some other work and will be full on the 620.

    Car looks great! Good to see Caterham emblazoned the dash with the model name in large letters so the passenger is clear on exactly what just scared the living hell out of them

    Looking forward to seeing this beast in the flesh.

    Is there another decal to go on the boot?
