  1. Update: the brake does lock up if I press hard enough using R888Rs. So I may be just not familiar with cars without brake booster. And I can notice, with a bit temp the brake grabs significantly harder. So maybe the pads are kinda race pads.
  2. Oh. Mustang turns. Just need some crowds as bait.
  3. Thanks. I haven't brought the cat on track yet so not sure about how the brakes perform when hot. But all the observation I had was on street and i used almost no brakes on street so I would say they are very cold... And actually I am not sure what pads are in the car right now... Will test with pads warmed up more and get back.
  4. Thank you for your advice! I guess I need more experiments then. I did notice when brake warms up, it grabs better. But I can hardly get them warm on street...
  5. Hi there, I have had my 420s for a few months now. One thing I am not sure is brake. It just does not give me the feeling that I am used to have in other cars. Maybe I am not used to non-boosted brakes? My car is 420s w/ standard brake MC and 4 piston calipers w/ original pads (good condition). I flushed the brake fluid with new ones recently but the pedal feeling before and after is the same. And I check there is no leak A few questions: 1. Sometimes, when I hard brake, the rev goes up. I think I didn't accidentally press the gas pedal... Anything can cause this? To my understa
  6. Had an early morning drive last week and took some pic for my car.
  7. I actually have this mirror coming with my car. But I am never used to it.
  8. I always find some driving without side mirrors on the highway is a bit of sketchy... after looking the fancy solution from EU, i decide to figure out an easier way by myself. Bought some quality motorcycle chrome mirrors and tap the windscreen mid hole into M10x1.25 thread. Here we go! I am pretty happy about the solution and it is completely reversible since the bolt goes to the mid hole doesn't use that threa d on stand at all!
  9. I would say depending on your experience and are you pushing the 10/10th. If not, that's something i won't worry too much.
  10. Another option might be using simpson hybrid s instead. It is designed for even 3pt seat belt, so I would think it is fine with off center harness.
  11. And @BruceBemay have zzs for sale.
  12. You are right. Mine is 15. But 185/55 vs 185/60 is about 3% difference in diameter. I think many tire size has that much variance from manufacturer to manufacturer.
  13. I just put some toyo r888r 195 width on my car. Based on my calculation, these tires can easily last maybe 6-10k miles, which is about 5 years driving for me. Well worth a new set.
  14. Received the title today and of course mvd put "seven" as model instead of "specon"... I think I will just leave it for now... @panamericano thank you!
  15. I want to share my experience on Caterham registration in AZ here, so maybe future buyers can have smoother process. I bought my 2017 420s from washington state. And there, the car is registered as 2017 kitv Caterham. So I was wondering what the registration process will be like in AZ and since I live in phoenix metro area, if the car is registered as 2017, it is possible that I need go thru emission test, etc. And... For emission test, they need obd2 which 7s don't have... So my goal is to register the car as a replica of 1957 lotus 7 so that I can bypass all the regulations.
