Any one here in Vic had one passed by a Engineer for full vic reg?

Seems there is a driving test determined by the wheel base that has to do with swerving through witches hats placed at a certian distance apart

WTF Lost Youth

More info to come

Nope stock old Model A Sedan with a Rod City Chassis under it Small Block power 4 bar front & rear Most of this Shit you fill find under most Vic rego Hot rods, Vintage chassis works 3 inch dropped axle Falcon dics

Must be able to pass through the cones at a 100 K from left to right
The cone distance apart I will know when the Engineer Figues it out from the wheel base of this car

Just wanted to know if anyone else in Vic using a approved vic roads Engineer is asked to do this test if you have a beam axle???

Seems obvious don't it but I suspect that he's not aware of it ( as in the engineer).....I also suspect the Rod City repo chassis is the sticking point, but again under the National guidlines, that should be OK...I'd push the point

Yeah thanks for the input Guys, I reckon this ol heap will pass ok and I am well aware of the guidlines,but I just aint heard of this test having to be done, I will let you know the outcome when I have done it

Man its been a long long time since I put new rego on a Hotrod" Last time I rolled up in my channeled 34 Coupe to Mentone police station in 1976 and one ol cop came out kicked the tyres checked the engine number and looked at my licence, Drove home with new plates"

Shit has it realy been that Long" where the Hell have those years gone,where the Hell has all my hair gone,

Thanks again Guys

Sounds like your gingerbeer is more of a theorist than a practitioner.
I'd piss him off and get another one.
I mean, what difference would it make if you had a beam axle of IFS.
On a flat surface you'd hardly notice the difference between them.
A few bumps may make a difference but not that much.

A bit of nostalgia there, Lost Youth. "The good ol days" . Just do an engine swap,and down to the local Police station for change of engine number,and the "important form" that informed the Rego branch of the increase in taxable horsepower[the reg fee was based on power weight units ,a lightweight 4 banger was cheaper than a heavy V8].By the time my current build is complete ,I am hoping with a copy of the guidelines,and a realistic signatory,all should be ok...........Frank.
