Guys,

I have built a Lotus 7 replica (PRB Clubman) with a Suzuki 1300 Hayabusa engine in it. I know it is not the sort of thing that you normally go for, but I thought you may be able to help me, BTW the car has 400hp/tonne.

To get the car registered in NSW it now has to comply with ADR 79/00 for exhaust emissions which is very dificult. Are hot rods with a new chassis classed as IVCs? Do you rodders have this problem with emissions? Can I register my car on some sort of hot rod restricted use plates? The Lotus 7 was built from 1957 and the PRB is a replica with modern components.

Cheers

Dave

Well I'm no expert but I'll let you know was told when I was considering building a F/glass 32 roadster on a repro 32 chassis, ( a ICV).

I asked what was the main consideration for rego? .the reply was emissions.

OK I say what's the best way to go? he suggested a 350 Chev on gas would pass, lots of others have.

Don't know if info this helps you. I would of thought a late model engine with all factory exhaust bits would keep them happy.

Maybe you could contact (or join) a club that builds and runs cars like your building, most car clubs welcome new members and love to give advice and help out the new guy.

good luck with it.

Dave.
Nice car mate . Some very interesting engineering to. A friend of mine had one of these with a 1300 Toyota in it and it went really well so I could imagine what yours would go like.
Repro chassis are usually stamped out like the originals and it's hard to tell them apart, if you what I mean. I've been watching with interest the hassles that another friend of mine is having getting a Cobra on the road. 140kph brake tests, in the wet, on a race track and with a professional driver!!! Here in NSW ICVs are definely not the way to go at the moment
Re. Street Rod Rego. This only applies to pre 48 cars. Also you need to have a separate chassis and body. I know this because I have a roadster which is built like a sports car. My original concept was for a full space frame with the body panels attached to the frame much like your clubman. This was not acceptable to the Street Rod Committee so I had to stick with the tried and true method of hotrod engineering.
Sorry I couldn't help you any further but I feel that your best hope is with a club that has similar type vehicles to yours as the previous post suggests.
As a consolation check this out. I found it looking up info on fuel injection.

Thanks for the advice. I am a member of a couple of car clubs and I am very aware of the process required to get my car on full rego. I was just wondering what the requirement for a street rod are. I am close to getting ADR79 certification on the engine so I guess I will persist.

Cheers

I have a mate that just went through the process of getting his Clubman registered...It has the Toyota engine though, but I don't think that will be of much difference. If you want me to put you in contact with him send me a PM and I'll give you his number.

Only yesterday I was at an RTA emissions testing site in Sydney, voluntarily thank christ, as the car did not pass.

There was a very informative guy there who was telling e that to get an ICV registered today, it must meet 2007 emission standards. (may have been 2006, but who cares).

I told him that I was planning on using factory standard mechanicals from a 2003 model Commodore and so I thought the emissions should not be a problem.

WRONG

It turns out that the 2006/7 rules are so difficult/expensive to achieve that the local manufacturers have been given until 2006/7 to comply. Only imported vehicles currently meet these standards.

This could explain why the guys at Bullet are using a Lexus V8, prolly not the cheapest motor around, nor the most powerful.

I'm personally a little dicouraged by this, let me know how you get on!

i would take issue with that!!! you can get a decent one out of a wrecker these days for barely over a grand!

sure, there's not a major aftermarket that you've got with the 350 chev, but i think it will appear soon enough.

oh yeah, i've got one

Posted: Tue Sep 09, 2020 9:25 am    Post subject: ICV's or Individually Constructed Vehicles

I'm a member of the Highway Jokers Rod Club in Tassie and also work for the Dept of Transport in Vehicle Standards & Modifications.

The question of what is an ICV and what is a "hot rod" or custom car is becoming a very complicated issue and depending on who you talk to and what their motoring ideals are, will depend on the their answer.

One certain member of our senior management equates any vehicle that has been rebuilt as an ICV and therefore should meet all ADR's - especially emission controls.

There are now problems occuring with guys that are building clubman or cobra replica's and the vehicles ability to meet these new requirements.

He is also trying to dictate that there will be a maximum build date of 2 years and the vehicle will need to meet all relevant standards and ADR's at time of registration.

This of course will require a crystal ball to determine what standards and/or ADR's may alter or change within 2 years and will encourage builders of hot rods, etc to rush the building of their vehicles.

In the past we have been able to prove that all vehicles have been built to a very high standard of modification and pass relevant standards.

With the inception of "special interest" registration in Tas it is now easier to have such vehicles registered but I am becoming increasingly worried about decisions made by the "WRX" crowd.

I would consider that all rod and custom car clubs in Australia monitor this situation very carefully.
