Issues with 420R first startup


Recommended Posts

@Pokey - Contact Rick Muck from Time Machines rick@timemachinesauto.com - I ordered the car from him. I actually just got the side impact bars to put on but haven't gotten around to it.

@Grog, that is what I thought, thank you.  Sorry if my questions seem a little inane, but I've been in contact with Caterham and have an email which very clearly states that side impact bars are not available for the SV chassis.  So you have a cage that is between the Trackday and the Superlight, and with bolt on side impact bars, what I've been looking for but Caterham denies exists :)

 

I'll reach out to Rick to see what this mysterious animal is called.

The original owner of my Orange SV who was 6’8” had a custom cage built extra tall with double side impact bars.  I think it was built by caged but it could have been Arch.  Croc may remember which.   Tom.

@yellowss7, thanks, I've explored the custom option a little bit too, but am hoping to get something with a certification sticker.

 

I reached out to Caterham for a third time, but now with pictures of Grog's car, and the nice bloke I'm in touch with has said he is going back to his engineering group with the pictures as they are telling him there are no side impact bars for the SV (except those that are part of the Superlight cage).  I suspect that Grog has the Academy cage, and for whatever reason it isn't being offered as an option for my needs (cage with side impact bars and front hoop that accommodates a windscreen in addition to the aeroscreen).  My backup option is the Superlight cage, and swapping between the cage and my Trackday bar for road use (which sounds like a real PIA).
