    Diving head first into the taboo world of  a highly modified or compromised vehicles on club reg.

    Ever drive to a car show and see some highly questionable modified cars on club reg and wonder what hoops they jumped through if any to get such privileges? Engineers Certs and RWC and what ever a club does for scrutinizing? Each club runs things a little different.

    Whats your thoughts on the process drawing on experience from your own or someone you know of? Do you have/or lost a club rego/how many years/cars? What club are you with? Would you join one again/what would you do differently? And most importantly what would you consider a red flag when it comes to any car enthusiast club.

    Key point is Club rego process and retaining it. Not really going into details of what they offer in terms of track days/discounts and social events.

    Cheers

    Big crack down is about to happen. All these dodgy clubs and member will get caught and shafted eventually.

    Then when they do get caught they need a roady to get registration again. So if they are modified. It’s only time.

    My uncle is a tech inspector here for the Chrysler club, he is anal about stuff, so I just assumed all clubs were.  Sounds like its not the case?  As my engineer literally once said to me, “Gary if your vehicle is involved in a major accident, I have to be able to stand up in a court of law and explain why I approved what I did”  I wonder where these club tech guys would stand if something went seriously wrong?

    Over the top modified vehicles running club reg. Soon all modified vehicles with be subjected to wear a club reg plate that states modified.

    Copper can see this. Pull u over and go over your mods etc if they aren’t engineered. You loose the plates.

    Its to stop all these blokes with blowers out the bonnet etc scamming the club reg system. As well as blokes who daily drive their club reg vehicle and don’t fill out log books

    I honestly don’t see a problem with it, well the modified part.
