  2. you should see the kit that was available for the Silvia... if u loved the 180 kit, you'll love this even more LOL i'll see if i can find a pic.
  3. ahh, it was bound to happen one day. there is no salvaging that car as the rear guards were savaged to fit those rims. id hate to see the damage to what he hit as that front section was incredibly heavy. the bonnet was full of bog and glass and weighed about 40kg - not a joke !! am glad it's smashed though, it gave nothing but grief and cost me a lot of money!!! i wont say anything about the guy who owns it now, but KARMA ahhahhahahahaahahahahahahahahaha

  6. Getting an interstate s14 rego'd in ACT

    ride height is simple.. if u can drive over their pit, you're good... if u cant - bye bye. if u go there at about 115mm, you should just get over it. even though the legal height is 100mm, their pit walls are NOT 100mm. I just scraped over them when I raised my old 180 to 110mm and they refused to check my car as I had already failed the height test.

  10. fark this, im going to get on to my cop mates and find out more about the policy regarding defecting of interstate registered vehicles as i know my comments above are going to spark a huge debate - as per previous threads on the topic. i'll be back in Oz in a week, so i'll get back to you all then
  11. by the way, only 2 of the names on that list can sign off on "performance" modifications - Ray Spence and John Wilson. i called all of them to get my Sil engineered, i didnt bother with John Wilson as i k now Dickson would have laughed at me, Ray Spence was very expensive and the others were all disabled person modification signatories (wheel chair access and cranes etc) and would not sign off on performance mods as that is not what they did. its a crock of shite and that list is super old too. i think actually 2 of them now are no longer even working. so you're really stuck with one choice. please feel free to correct me if i am wrong, however i did a lot of research before paying out $2300 for my report. my advice, save your time and money, keep it Tas rego.
  12. i haven't checked in a while, but last time i wore NSW plates ACT cops would not defect me, different state = different motor vehicle standards (as it says in bold text towards that bottom of the first page of the above link "Vehicles will be inspected against the relevant ACT Road Transport Laws applicable at the date of inspection.", therefore they cannot defect you as they have no jurisdiction to defect a vehicle that is registered under the Road and Transport laws of another state. they can hand out infringement notices like candy however, which is how they get you. your car might be registered in Tas, but if u want to drive it in ACT/NSW/VIC what ever, then you have to meet the standards of the state you are driving in too. its completely stupid that for rego purposes you only have to meet the standards of the state you are registering in, but if you travel interstate and the police there do not believe your car meets their standards, they can issue you with an infringement, which is what i got a lot of when i wore NSW plates. the bright side is, no inspections, you just pay the fine and off you go (no points loss either), the down side, it gets expensive after a while especially if you fail the attitude test. again, that is how i understand things, i might be wrong now, but everytime i look at building/buying an import, i do what ever i can to not wear ACT plates as unless you have a Ray Spence engineers report, Dickson/ACT Police will go to town on you - regardless of what ever the BS is you get told over the phone or they have on the uselss Canberra Connect website. there is no consistency with Dickson. If you have family in Tasmania, change the rego address to their address and wear your two headed plates with pride
  13. keep it registered in Tasmania... interstate plates = no issues if u do decide to get it engineered, Ray Spence (Canberra Motor Works) is the only engineer Dickson will take seriously. Dont use John Wilson (AKZ Engineering) as they will laugh at you, then go to town on your car. i've been to dickson more times than i care to recall (like most of the guys here) and (as each of them will atest) each time i went, the rules were different. as i said above, the easiest way to get around it is to keep it registered in Two Headsville or get Ray Spence to do you a report. be prepared for at least $1000 - $2000 for a heavily modified car... my V8 silvia cost me $2300 and that was a stock stock s13 + stock Toyota V8, stock toyota trans, skyline brakes, tein coil overs and no back seat.
