  1. Thanks to all with experience on this in CA. Clearly, Caterham Sevens are delivered as kits, and have an assembly manual. Tom - you might be on to something with the pre-built Hillbank approach. I've always winced a bit, when they put together demonstrators like that. Cheers, -Bruce
  2. Thanks guys. Not a lot of 6-speeds running around. Cheers, -Bruce
  3. How many folks are currently running the Caterham close-ratio 6-speed, or would be interested in a Caterham 6-speed if it were available? We're currently evaluating our investment level, in supporting this gearbox moving forward. This is the Type-9 derivative, not the newer Mazda-based gearbox (5-speed). Cheers, -Bruce
  4. Sounds like a good idea for extending reach and awareness. It's also encouraging that the approach and guidelines for the use of those two additional outlets still retains a center of mass here on the forum. IMO - that part is important. Cheers, -Bruce
  5. Well, there are a bunch more pins on the CSR tach. In the end, power, ground, and a tach signal make a tach a tach. What year is the chassis? Armed with two sets of schematics, and pins/shells from Caerbont, one could probably get most, if not all chassis side features working on the new tach. Cheers, -Bruce
  6. We have both of these tachs (58055 and 71261) on the shelf. I'm a bit surprised that the 71261 you have is 2-coil, but, there are clearly multiple generations of these tachs. To be specific, we have the 58055A, which is the current CSR tach listed on the UK website. You can always reach us at info@beachmanracing.com Cheers, -Bruce
  7. Spindle is now a custom AP part, as of 2015. It's important to note that *all* car manufacturers utilize an outsourced supply-chain, as it is less profitable to maintain the design/implementation resources in-house. Most of those custom Titan and AP parts were specifically designed for Caterham, to their specifications. Pop quiz and a gold star to the one who correctly identifies the interchange on the CSR rear brake caliper (Croc - give them a chance). Cheers, -Bruce

    New Build

    You're welcome :-) Cheers, -Bruce
  9. Craters/shippers have been notified - this one's coming up to Seattle. Many thanks to everyone who expressed interest and support. And I dare say, Seattle is starting to become a decent locus of Seven ownership. This year, we've got new representation in Seattle x 2, Woodinville, Redmond x 2, and Kirkland. Vroom, vroom! -Bruce
  10. Yogi had a good collection of seats to check out today: 310S SV with leather seats 620R S3 with carbon Tillets G7 SV race car with the FIA Tillet "Big boy" XL seat CSR race car ("Catzilla") with standard FIA Tillets Cheers, -Bruce
  11. Wow Bob - I should put you on the marketing team :-) I've been slow-rolling the pickup on this kit at the factory, but I'm guessing my excuses will be exhausted sometime this week. If you live closer to England than Seattle, and are thinking about a self-build, I believe there will be time and money savings. Cheers, -Bruce
  12. Price on this kit is now set, at under $49K + shipping. The kit is still in the UK, so a drop-ship can be arranged. Cheers, -Bruce
  13. Thanks - gearbox is the new Caterham 5-speed. The only 6-speed option is the sequential Sadev at this point, as the bespoke Caterham 6-speed is discontinued. While the car looks attractive in black, we chose the color based on input from our local body-shop. For those wishing to change the color, black is a good starting point. For dry-sumped kits, we offer professional assembly services at $7K. We will be settling with the factory over the next couple of days, so pricing will be fixed at that point. Then we'll have a few days before locking-in on delivery to our facility in Washing
