  • Another new caterham in San Diego

    Joe, a Mission Hills resident, has a CSR superlight on the way. The duratec will eventually reach 260 HP.

    Hopefully he will be along to tell us more about himself and the car.

    Thanks for the introduction! It was great meeting Brad (Roll A Seven), Justin (sdcat) and Tom at the Qualcomm autocross this past weekend. Yes, I do have a CSR Superlight on the way and hope to start the assembly in ~one month. The first pictures of the build came in today, from Dartford:

    The base color is Aspen White and the stripes are Ice White, both shamelessly stolen from the Lotus color wheel. The design layout is a reflection of the Caterham Formula One livery.

      • Plumbed in Fire Extinguisher

        I'm not sure how you will be able to cure upgradeitis w/ that spec as the starting point! :-D

        You might as well get the Nitron dampers (2 way) now. By all accounts they are *much* better than the stock Bilsteins. They are certainly on my wish list.

          Nice spec :)
          One concern would be the 4-point harness. Not sure about autox but for track use you need at least a 5-point harness with 3" straps

            Thanks! Nice catch, slomove. My understanding is that the "race" version of the 4 point comes with the 3" straps. I did buy the anti-submarine belt, which is supposed to clip in to the harness system.

              Maybe even the dampers that have both high and low speed bump and rebound adjustment.

              You may need them to send a suspension engineer out to adjust them. Only a nominal $$$$ charge.
