#385008 Tow Bar On Zero

Posted by ozz on 15 May 2018 - 03:41 PM

Legally its a big no to fitting a tow bar to virtually any kit car.

 

As Dan says all tow bars must be type approved if fitted to vehicles registered after 1.8.1998.

 

A non type approved tow bar will breach the construction and use regulations and therefore be an offence.

 

Since it is unlikely that the vehicle was registered with any towing weights specified it will not have a plated gross train weight and so will be overladen if towing any trailer. Another offence.

 

Unless you declare the tow bar to your insurance company, your insurance will be voidable, which means the insurance company can refuse to cover you in the event of an accident.

 

It is possible that with such a lightly constructed car, overladen (see above) with a non type approved tow bar, that consideration would be given to a prosecution for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition (S40A RTA 1988) which carries 3 points and a fine.

 

If there was an accident the it could be Dangerous Driving.( a mandatory ban, retest and possibly imprisonment)

 

Its more likely to be VOSA than the police who pull you over for a stop check at one of their roadside check points.

 

Having built a zero and had it rear ended I would not be putting any extra load on the rear end or be drilling any additional holes in the box section.

 

I hate tents too so sorry to put a damper on your plan.

To all parents attending EoSB with their children.

 

I have a fun activity/race planned for the kids.

 

To participate you will need to bring an oversized paper boilersuit (the sort used for decorating) and about 20 balloons per child.

 

Large suits have been tested and work for ages 10-13 smaller or larger suits may be needed for smaller or larger children.

We tested with 5 inch balloons inflated less to fit in arms and legs.

 

The idea is to stuff the suit with balloons and race the children possibly over obstacles fashioned on the day.

 

As an added twist at least one water balloon is put in and at the end of the race those parents cruel enough will pop the balloons.

 

This idea has been tested and is great fun for the children too!

Thanks to Andi and everyone else with a hand in organising this great weekend.

 

It was really good to get my non-kit out amongst the kit cars albeit as rear gunner.

 

definitely on my calendar for next year :hi:  .




#372255 Yeeeeeeehaaaaaaa

Posted by ozz on 08 May 2017 - 03:51 PM

Stick at it Chris and you will have a great car capable of warp speeds, I have seen Whiz's with similar spec and it was awesome. :hi:

 

Just don't think of the miles you could have under your belt if you had stuck with the pinto  =@

Does the water level drop when you use the windscreen washers?

Have you found a small white connector under the dash with two wires going to positive and negative?

 

If so can I have it as its off my battery charger.

I'm going to ignore all mechanical factors entirely and go purely on Astrology.

 

With Mars in the ascendancy you will beat Terry on BHP and torque.

Since Venus is in your lower aspect will not get all the BHP that you want, which will leave you pleased with what you have acheived but wanting more.

Due to Uranus hanging out you will be wanting a bigger intercooler and a cold air ram scoop.
