My one college buddy kept ranting about how he was going to build a sports car for a few hundred bucks.

I saw the top gear episode with the stig and the caterham build and I remembered what he said. Looked around at the brit site a bit and then tried finding how to register one here in the states. Then found this site...its been amazing so far.

Google led me to this site while I was in search for an upper balljoint to fit the miata spindle.

This site has been a huge resource for my build. Thanks Chet and other contributors.

google, I saw the top gear episode with the stig and the caterham build and wanted to do that myself. This was the most active board about locost I could find, so I made am account after I got the lotus clone.

I don't even remember. Couple possibilities.

I think I bought my first grassroots motorsports magazine, saw the Flying Miata Westfield, saw that it was a Lotus/Caterham 7 clone/replica, and went from there. And ended up here, enthralled.

I learned about Seven's from Top Gear.

Might have been the Top Gear episode where they assembled one.

I do remember wandering across the Car & Driver(Or was it Road & Track?) about Locosts, after doing research on what a Caterham was. Maybe that?

LocostUSA Yahoo group. Still a subscriber, though I admit it's been a long time since I read every post there.

G'day Guys,
Was on the original Locost Yahoo UK site (back in 1999) and discovered the USA site one night and joined up to see what was going on. A big shitfight started between a few on the UK site about that time so a dedicated Aussie site was set up and a heap of us let the UK site go. I stayed a member here still lurk from time to time.

The Aussie Yahoo group eventually pretty much dissolved and OzClubbies took over. I'm still building, got 5 chassis on the go at the moment, and two builders waiting for me to finish their cars to rego status. Pretty amazing how this forum has developed over the years, some very nice work being done by quite a few people.
Regards,
Mike.
Adelaide, Australia.

Put me on the google wagon. I'm repurposing a toyota pickup front frame clip for autoX duty and I dont think I've seen this much condensed information about practical application of suspension geometries in one place ever! :cheers:

I replied Google as well. I was searching for custom built wishbone suspension information and design tips, and accidentally ran into the Locost results. What a resource! You guys are great and I've only been here a few days. This forum was the end all be all of that search, I think all the info I need is either here, or linked from here.
