For Questions Regarding WOFs/CERTs/NUMBER PLATEs

Recommended Posts

Adjustable platform suspension needs cert if the car didn't come with it, even if it's direct bolt in replacement.

Talk to a certifier, they are all slightly different in what they will and won't pass. For your suspension, adjustable shocks are fine its only height adjustable stuff that needs certing.

If you are talking about wheel and tyres, not allowed to contact/rub ANYWHERE on the car at all. Most stuff is very similar to WoF requirements just a little more in depth. Look up the LVVTA site and download the section of the manual related to what you want to modify.

Crap

I rub my tie rods i think on full lock, if i was to go say Tyre Master would they be able to help me out?

Am i going to be able to avoid the rubbing, if i raise the mounts?

should be able to wind the steering stops off a little, not a big deal at all. Will lose a little sterring lock.

Looking at buying a car with a moved firewall and turreted rear end. What should I look for to make sure its ok for a cert? Quality of welds I guess is obvious, any sneaky little laws?

Dont worry rang cert guy. Apparently if it is as strong as standard then its fine. He said it isnt really a major deal as long as its all straight and solid.

^^ Not really. Its a way of testing cars that have been modified outside of the WOF. I think $400 is a small price to pay to make sure your modified car is still safe. There are some people that do dodgy modifications out there.

For custom gearbox and engine mounts, do these need to be welded by a qualified engineer? Cause I've got a mate who's doing an apprenticeship but from what I've seen is a pretty damn good welder, could he do it for me?

Do driveshafts need to be balanced or anything?

driveshafts need a certificate from the place it was balanced at to say its been balanced. welding of engine mounts etc can be done by a ticketed welder, but it does say that anyone deemed competent enough at welding by your particular certifier can do it as well. youd be best to talk to your local cert guy.

yeh you'l get away without a welding ticket. long as your welds look good. i did all the welding on my cars and both went thru a cert no worries. the second car he didnt seem too worried at all, diff, turrets, engine mounts etc.. only thing he was worried about was drive shaft, witch has to be done by qualified shop as someone else said.

hmmmm thats interesting

its easy to make a weld look good, its alot harder to make it look good and be as strong as it should be

when you do the welding tests, they dont just get you to lay a couple of beads and have a look at them, you do a fuckload of welding, then chop it up to check that its actually getting proper penetration and all that,

Ny cer guy didnt mind we did our own welding, he didnt even mention it. That was on engine mounts. He is a pretty anal cunt too.

Alot of the time it can be seen if it has penertrated or not.

saw a capri at the musclecar maddness show in the weekend that had a halfcage and still retained the rear seat. Is that legal?

or did he just take the rear seat out for cert and then put it back in again?
