    Imagine how expensive a Caterham would be if it contained many custom parts? Using of the shelf parts dramatically reduces cost.

    Lots of race cars used the Triumph spindle, Including early 60s formula one cars. I have played with a lot of Formula Fords and similar cars. Very common for them to use that spindle.

    Spindle is now a custom AP part, as of 2015.

    It's important to note that *all* car manufacturers utilize an outsourced supply-chain, as it is less profitable to maintain the design/implementation resources in-house. Most of those custom Titan and AP parts were specifically designed for Caterham, to their specifications.

    Pop quiz and a gold star to the one who correctly identifies the interchange on the CSR rear brake caliper (Croc - give them a chance).
