  1. Terry, what is the recommended time between rebuilds?
  2. Copying here for any bay area se7eners: http://californiacaterhamclub.com/chat/showthread.php?1969-Nor-Cal-Sevens-picnic After driving today, Tom and I were discussing the sometimes spotty contact between 7 owners and enthusiasts in the area. So we thought it might be good to have a picnic. So I'm thinking, depending on whether it rains or not, maybe Saturday, October 13th or 20th I'll go down to Vasona Lake Park in Los Gatos ($6 for parking, but very safe!) with some basic picnic fare and hang out at one of the first come, first served picnic tables by the creek. Any with a Caterham, Bir
  3. Yes Caterhams are light and I think NA engines are nice, but I'd love to have the HP to blow by a GT3 on the track. It will not happen with a NA engine. Terry, I love the sound of your Rotrex & Hayabusa powered seven. Please post more videos! How is it's drivablity compared to the NA Hayabusa?

  8. Wow. I see this and think: "Trees don't move. Really. If you hit one, the tree will not give, your car (or you!) will!!"
  9. I've done a fair share of touring miles. I have a starcom intercom wired into the car. I've used various headsets. The over the ear headsets are convenient, but as Gert says they can get sweaty/sticky on hot days - they are GREAT when it's cold out!. They can also squeeze your head after a few hours of wearing them. A member of se7ens.net worked with Sensorcom to create an in ear solution. They did a group buy but now it seems like they have made it a product: http://www.sensorcom.com/prodtype.asp?PT_ID=346 They work best if you have custom molded earpieces made for them. Th
  10. That is a very nice looking Saab - wish it was a turbo!
  11. Gert, that looks like a great trip. I'm interested. Tom
