  1. For sale with a difference - 2013 Caterham CT03 THIS IS A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE A REAL FORMULA 1 CAR FAST TOYS is offering a real very rare piece of motorsport history, the Graal of every motorsport collector: a modern Formula 1 race car! This car is the 2013 Caterham CT03 Chassis #5 that was designed to run the 2013 Formula 1 Championship. This very chassis has raced during the Australian Grand Prix, Malaysian Grand Prix, China Grand Prix, Bahrain Grand Prix, German Grand Prix, Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, United States Grand Prix and Brazilian Grand Prix. The main driver of that particular chassis was Giedo Van Der Garde. The Chassis if of carbon fiber monocoque laminated from carbon epoxy with honeycomb + kevlar structure. Its weight is 642 kg (1,415 lbs) including driver and fuel. The car was using the Renault RS27-2013 2,400cc V8 engine, naturally aspirated with 18,000 RPM limited including KERS. Transmission was a Red Bull Technology 7 speed semi automatic gearbox. Power output was 750-830 hp at 18,000 RPM depending on KERS mode. This car - as it is now - is a rolling chassis with no engine or drive train. But some options are available to complete it to make a fully driveable race car. This is the last generation of F1 cars to use the V8 naturally aspirated engines, making it the most modern F1 car you can actually drive after fitting an engine and drive train. PRICE: PLEASE ASK You can actually see this car at https://www.specialtycarcollection.com/vehicle-details/2013-caterham-formula-1-car-roadster-35822a9fab634cfebe0e02fef926ac98# If you have to ask the price, then its not for you! But I can tell you they are asking $499,000.

  3. Photos are taken outside the Caterham Dartford location - look up Kennet Road. Obviously wheeled the kit out for a photo op - actually very common request by dealers to gee up their customers. Is the seller, Kampena Motors given the Sonoma location?
  4. It definitely needs disassembly to check properly. I thought mine were good just by looking but once disassembled, the crack was obvious. Mileage is not always the driver here - Josh at Rocky Mountain had a CSR with a broken clevis block with only 6000 miles on it.
  5. If they are MG sized then its a Lucas part. Thats your clue it is probably sourced from the UK. But they are slightly more rounded appearance than the MG ones plus the lack of terminals is a weird one. So do you repair/rebuild the switches you have or replace all out with MG switches to give a consistent look?
  6. I resemble that remark! I definitely recommend getting the paper catalog sent out. Absolutely brilliant book of ideas on how to spend more money. Air conditioning is essential in Texas, just like BBQ and illegal immigrants.
  7. Look at the Car Builder Solutions website. I bet you get a match there.
  8. I agree with Tom. Gentle break in in green group and assess progress on the day. Sign up at the track for Sunday if you think you are in a good spot.
  9. @CarlB @slowdude Just a heads up that you are posting in the 2022 event thread and not this years, 2023 event.
  10. Bummer - thats really annoying. Feeling sorry for you and hoping you and your passenger were unscathed other than being shaken up. I think you got away lucky - that could have been so much worse. Particularly boneheaded by the BMW too - he was target fixated on the white shitbox and not track aware. Assuming he was a racer (given that it was a race car) he should have been aware that you were behind and then alongside but I bet you were below his field of vision (window sill height) because of your low height. That said, it is always the responsibility of the passing car to complete the pass on track safely. This is a major reason I am cautious in a se7en around bigger cars on track - they don't always look, they cannot see and they are bigger than me so I will be beaten up worse. I bet the conversation in the pits afterwards was interesting. Who was the track day organizer? The safe answer is disassemble and reassemble that corner. The damage could be hidden and you will not know until you pull it apart. Something is obviously off for your alignment to be off. I'd check the wheel balance too as you may have lost a wheel weight. Check the steering rack has not moved/shifted. Its really unlikely to have damaged the rack but its feasible its moved somehow. My suspicion is a bent control arm - subtle so not obvious on the car or some bushing damage on a joint. The alternative is assume its ok, realign and off you go out on track again only for it to break out there while at speed. Frustrating I know but is it worth taking the risk when the driver in your car is the air bag (I mean that in the nicest way of course!).
  11. The problem with importing that Caterham is that it is not yet 25 years old although someone managed it as there is one in the south. David Saville-Peck is sadly no longer with us as he would have been able to do a kit version of that cycle engine caterham. A number of manufacturers have done bike engined cars over the years - Caterham Blackbird, Westfield Hayabusa - although they are no longer current. For for current makers - you have found XCS. But also MK Indy is out there: https://www.mksportscars.com/models/mk-indy-model.html They used to have a USA dealer although not sure who that is or how to get in contact? There is a USA7s member with a bike-engined Locost amongst other things. Calling @spitfun to the discussion as a voice of experience. Deman had a mixed reputation - some loved them some hated them. The problem with bike engined cars is you are using a small lightweight engine to propel something that is a magnitude of weight higher. Thats not a great equation for reliability on the transmissions.

  13. No chance. I am distracted and then I distracted Bruce with an October trip to Spa with 4 days on track. It will be finished in October - not sure what year.
  14. Yes although I struggled with that target given the inconsistency of the traffic on track that day.
