  1. Caterham’s rarely put out enough voltage at idle to charge the battery. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    oil cooler

    I would not run on track without an oil cooler. I have fitted a Mocal water oil cooler, picture attached, not the most professional installation as I never went back and made a bracket, but hey it’s kept the car cool for 5 years of regular track use. The fittings are AN12. Most people run a standard air oil cooler, which works well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Uh oh I would have bought that if I’d seen it and I don’t have an SV Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Only small chance of rain after 6pm on Sunday at the earliest according to my trusted Millville weather app. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. That was a fun and occasional leery afternoon. Hold on Thunderbolt’s day two that’s promising you have confidence in a late Brexit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Vovochandar The only thing you need to know about me, is that my passenger ride laps come with a British accent, and are a little less time consuming than Croc’s. Look forward to seeing you this weekend and would be happy to take any guests out on track. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I have a BGH gearbox in my Caterham, which I’ve tracked enthusiastically for the last 3 years and it’s been great. They have their own alumminium (spelt correctly) casings, which are a nice upgrade to the standard box. Highly recommend Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. OK I’ve started to think about track days again. I’ll be there for sure. Happy to offer passenger rides and to provide some driving instruction for Seb, he must have forgotten how to do it by now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I believe caterham have changed ECU to run engine temperatures around 100 C. Apparently a request of Ford. I heard this from Blake (don’t remember his forum name) his new Duratec is also running at these temps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. My 6’1” son. S3 with lowered floors and Tillet seats. I think you’ll fit and I personally find the seats comfortable even on longer drives, but padded seat inserts available and only add about 1” of height. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. What? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Sitting at Heathrow airport trying to fly back, very busy and lots of delays apparently there’s some event going on in the USA today, I assume they must all be going to our sevens event;) Won’t make it in time tonight, but see you all Thursday. PS what’s this BS about new slicks Mr Gavel, 1000HP and grip, we’ll be eating orange dust... Simon W Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I upgraded from wet to dry sump. The wet sump is approx 3” deep and the dry sump 2” so theoretically 1”, BUT on my Duratec car the bell housing is approx 3” below the base of the engine (excluding sump) which would put it inline with the wet sump and eliminate the advantage.
