Drives like a go kart with a load of power to be honest. Oodles of grip, no power steering so the steering feel is fantastic not to mention the fact that your arse is about 6 inches off the ground and you're sat on a fibreglass seat so you can feel what the chassis is doing which gives confidence.

Revs to 16000rpm (although the shift light is set to 14000 to protect the engine) so at full chat its absolutely mental. Sequential gears is arcade simple.

Just negotiating price on a trailer. Need to buy a couple of full face lids (mine are open face due to tracking the tin tops) and I'm good to go.

GREEN with envy! I have thought about getting a Catterham kit and building it myself. How do these compare?

Never been in a caterham. Had a Westfield but it was only a 1700 crossflow and no match for this. Look on you tube for Mk Indy r.
