After the heavy toy... the light one

Hi all,

So, after having introduced my new 3.0 CRD WH (http://www.jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=16362), let me make a little presentation of my other toy; the only similar point with the big toy is its color: full black

It's a Caterham Super Seven.
At the begining, it was a Roadsport Edition with a regular 1.6 - 16v Rover engine. This engine was enough for the car : 115hp for only 550kg but with the love of having the hands inside the engine, I did the replacement of some items:
PiperCross SuperSport camshafts
Vernier pulley and reinforced timing belt for enabling sharp setup of the engine.
Larger Throttle boy
Full alloy and bigger velum
4-2-1 exhaust, free of catalyser

So now the engine is set to 140hp (at least) with very fast response at the acceleration (better intake and exhaust) :Arround 5s for 0 to 60 mph.

But, I can't use it in the winter, the salt used on the road could damaged the body and the chassis of the car (aluminium body panel).

Driving such car is like riding a moto but without heavy security equipment (head and body protection), you can touch the road with you hand while you are inside the car.
Every one turn their head when you pass

When the weather will be better, i'll make some photo with the two black toys together

Here are some photos took last summer:

Thanks.

I'll already tried but the two equipment I had at the moment I did the photos failed: a digital tape and hard drive cameras.
The two failed whiled recording onboard of the Cat, two many vibrations while driving (hard drive and tape motor failure).
I have now the solid state digital recoder; I'll do some when weather will be better.

Re: After the heavy toy... the light one

Very cool, I have always liked the 7's.

My uncle is in the process of building an r1 powered locost ( low cost, home made lotus 7)

Very cool cars, handle like a dream

Re: After the heavy toy... the light one

That's beautiful.. I've read in a few magazines about them but nothing more than that.

Your pictures that scales the WH and the 7 is my new computer wallpaper

Thanks,

I know some guys who own such configuration; they told me that driving this type of 'car' is amazing! I have to test...

In a first time, I tried to build by myself a seven from the factory kit available at Caterham UK but french laws avoid doing that (you can build it but you can't drive it). So I bought one from a friend who was a Caterham reseller in France and know I spend time in performance tunig, detailing, driving.
