"Subject: Stop the RTA taking away our rights to modifiy our vehicles


Hey all you cars/bike enthusiasts, 4WD's & Mini-truckers.

Forget all the rumours that have been floating around for the past couple of years, this time its for real. I have even got confirmation from a couple of the engineers that it looks like all systems go. UNLESS WE DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

The RTA is at it again trying on the sly to take away our right to modify our rides and if we dont act now and use people power by the masses Just like when they put out that VSI50 crap we all rallied & the shit was thrown out.

The RTA has put a date (September 29 2011) on when the current vehicle modification rules will cease to exist and the new (communist nanny state style) rules will come into effect.

This may not affect you at the moment, but 5 or 10 years down the track when you decide to upgrade to a newer 4WD or weekend muscle car, you dont want to look back and remember that you did nothing to stop it, and you might as well be driving a white Toyota Prius Hybrid. LOL

Heres a just preview of whats installed for all of us (and theres something here for everyone):

Cars:
- You can no longer increase your tyre rolling diameter by more than 15mm for passenger cars. So for get about fitting a nice pair of 26-30" street radials on the rear of your muscle cars & no more 20-22" rims for the ricers.

- Replacement engine sizes will be drastically reduced. So no more 308's in LJ toranas, no more 350's in LX toranas, no more V8's in capri's or cortinas, etc, etc. And as for forced induction, with the limits to be imposed you wont even be able to turbo or blow your original engines in most cases. It works out that you can only blow up to a 4.3L in something as heavy as an XY Falcon. WTF

- Streetrods will become a thing of the past.

4WDs:
- You can no longer increase your tyre rolling diameter by more than 50mm on your everyday ride. So no more fitings a set of 35's to your patrol or landcruiser and if your lucky you may just be able to fit a set of 31's to your hilux navara triton or rodeo. How crazy's that.

- You will no longer be able to raise your vehicle cab more than 6" total, inclusive of that resulting from suspension lifts, body lifts and from larger tyres.

- To get a vehicle lift (like just mentioned) for more than 2" engineer certfied will set you back thousands with all the bulshit testing that will have to be done on a closed circuit test track. From what I here it will need to be done on an unused air-strip, so you will be going somewhere like goulburn or somewhere in the sticks to do it & good luck getting an engineer to travel that far away to do it for you. This shit will end up impossible to get done

- Bye bye modified 4Wd's and the massive small business workshops and parts industries that it supports. Hello social security.

Mini-trucks:
- Well all ive got to say is do you remember VSI-50 ! Bye bye chassis notches, drop-spindle & fitting 20" wheels Bye bye minitrucks and the massive small business workshop and parts industries that it supports. Hello social security.

All is not lost (yet) as it has not even been signed off by the Roads Minister yet If we do nothing it will happen and if you think they will change it back once done your dreaming (just like labour cancelled the GST when they got back in after the John Howard ere - LOL). If a few thousand people send emails or letters to the road minister and CC Barry O'Farell, they will realise how many voters they will piss off and can the whole shit.

Here's what you do. send an email to the current roads minister Duncan Gay: 'office@gay.minister.nsw.gov.au' and CC the party leader Big Bazza: 'office@premier.nsw.gov.au' so that Duncan knows his boss is getting a copy.

Keep it clean, and remind them of their election promise to clean up the RTA as well as the previous government backdown on VSI-50 after the huge rallys that took place in opposition to it and also how they held back these new rules until after the election as it would have only help bury their sinking ship.

Make it clear that you are not happy with how it will affect you or even your livlihood, and how do they fancy their chances of getting in next election and the prospect of spending another 3 or 4 terms in the dark, as us vehicle enthusiasts have long memories.


Forward this to anyone that you think may have a problem with this now or in the future. We need it to spread like a chain letter. Maybe I should put a condition on it like if you dont forward this to 20 people in the next 24 hours you will loose your genitals in a freak accident or something. LOL. Well thats what it looks like the RTA would do to us given the chance



To do nothing & cop this shit would be tragic.



I certainly dont want to be remember as the generation who bent over and got shafted by the RTA,"

An email I received..........



Hi All

For those that are interested in the NSW Vehicle Standards (VSB14) here is a link to the site page, its a multi part document and explains what amendments to the rules the RTA want to put in place by the time the VSCCS (new engineers scheme) is ready very soon.

http://www.infrastructure.gov.au/roads/veh...regulation/bu...


This is the Guideline to which we will have to build our cars as the future unfolds, there are things that stand out and need to be addressed as a matter of concern and they are being addressed as we speak with consultation by the ACMC Inc and other very important parties of which most are doing this voluntarily for the good of the Motor Enthusiast.

If you have any feedback please forward it to the ACMC Inc contact link page on the website - http://www.confederationofmotorclubs.org.au/index.htm

Pass this to each and every Enthusiast you can who wishes to know all the rules that are being proposed for modified cars in NSW.
