I got a lap time of 2.03 on Buttonwillow configuration #13 clockwise. A more competent driver than me should have no problems breaking under the two-minute mark.For reference, see Buttonwillow CR#13 CW top 40 times:http://www.trackhq.com/forums/f90/to...ap-times-3922/The single axle, electrically braked trailer was custom built for the car and was powder coated around 2013THE HISTORYI bought and built the car in Southern California with a Zetec engine. After adding a supercharger, I sold the engine and bought a Ford Ranger "red" crate unit and a full Cosworth CSR 260 kit, minus the roller barrels, and built the engine as shown in the build diarly linked above.Various bits and pieces have been added over the years. The only thing missing for a full race spec is a fuel cell.The car was a well-known participant in drives and events around SoCal before I moved to Portland in 2015. The car was used about 50% on road (mostly mountain blats) and track (club events and time trials). No crashes, no contact on road or track.If you search for my (magnusfeuer) posts athttp://californiacaterhamclub.com/chat/you will see all the major events that we've been through.THE BADThe paint job is, having done it myself, bad. There is a also dent at the left rear (pictured in album).The car slipped off the quick lift jack at Buttonwillow in 2013 (if I recall) and bent one of the front lower cross members about one inch. This was fixed (pictured) by John West of Dan Fink Metalworks and the car is absolutely straight.The car does not have a odometer since the switch to Magden M1 computer. Miles have been manually logged since 2012. The wiring is still in place for the original speedo/odo, should you want to buy a new one from Caterham.Please note that California title transfer can be done without mileage repoprting when the vehicle is older than 10 years.https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv/de...s/reg/odometerThe FIA approval for the Schroth harness expires at the end of 2016. The harness is virtually unused and should be good for several years' worth of track days.For details, please email me at magnusfeuer at hotmail dot com or call me at 949 294 7871.Dented front cycle wings
