    Number Plates.

    I have a vinyl plate on the nose. Been like it for years and numerous mots and police pass by’s no problem but I’m not kidding myself as I know it’s definitely not legal and would just plead dumb to it at the roadside and hope for a wrist slap

    Small Number Plates.

    assuming you've changed your adhesive vinyl number plate on the stylus.....which is technically as illegal as an undersized number plate

    Personal Details Leak - Members Information

    It's a genuine and honest mistake made by Alan - we're all only human after all! Alan has supported the club a great deal over the years and acted quickly as soon as this was brought to light. Whilst I appreciate all this GDPR thing going off at the minute, please let us not blow this out of all proportion and loose a fantastic area sec!!

    So Little Time So Much To Do ---- Part Two

    I pay £95 for half a ton - so that works out at 19p per kg, so it sounds like Bob's being ripped off

    Official Stoneleigh National Kit Car Show Information

    Just a thought; It maybe worth asking the hog-roast company to set-up at the back of the club stand this year instead of in the camping area. In previous years, the old camping area (plot 64) has been pretty much RHOCaR exclusive so plenty of space and easy to see that only members are getting pig-cobs. Given this year you'll be camping in the same area as everyone else at the show, space will probable be limited (especially if the weather is good) as well as every man and there dog trying to get a free pig-cob.

    We do Santa pod loads throughout the year so will probably be up for any of those dates.

    And unless Keith has cancelled, I'm sure the Ukrainian centre still has us booked in for this September.

    Eosb Discussions

    I am only 1 voice on the committee and as you all know I will be stepping down very soon because this is one of the decisions I've strongly disagreed with - and yes I'm probably spitting my dummy out over it but its because a lot of hard work and personal favours was put in to get it to where it is, only for it to be tossed aside because the committee basically can't be ar5ed and are using the 'only dates available' as a convenient excuse not to bother with it this year (September date was offered almost straight away after last years event and June was offered not long after, so these dates have been on the table for ages). I accept that I do hold a bias view on the EOSB given that the venue for the first few years was Hollowell (which I had close ties with) and then in last couple of years it has been held at the Ukrainian Centre (again, I have close ties with the venue). Both these venues I've managed to get the club and vastly reduced costs compared to other venues. My take on the situation is that the newer members on the committee would rather stick up some RHOCaR banners and write some cheques for other people's events instead of rolling there sleeves up and organising something (EOSB) themselves.

    Catalytic Converters

    Thanks Dan - I thought about dropping you a line as I remember seeing you now have a gas analyser.....however discovering the lack of a cat made the emissions problem pretty obvious!

    Catalytic Converters

    The VX220 failed mot yesterday on emissions.....and its hardly surprising because once I got underneath to have a look at the after-market exhaust, there is no bl00dy cat installed. The car is an 03 plate with I think means its tested to Euro3. Ive bought a 200cell cat with is e-marked and supposedly Euro4 standard. But Im a little bit worried because Ive read some bits on the web where people struggle to get 200cell cats through the mot. Now it maybe one of those instances where the more you read, the more conflicting info you get.....so I thought Id reach out to the trusted RHOCaR crew to see if any of you guys have had experiences with 200cell cats, any problems etc..... 2 foot notes - the vx has a really short exhaust system and the cat is immediately after the primaries so it should get plenty warm enough.... Also from looking into this, it looks like most cats you can by for kitcars are 200cell.....gbs sell theres and it is 200 cell and they say it Iva compliant

    If you mount to the suspension uprights the arches don’t turn with the wheels. The brackets can be adjusted to fit to the hubs and then the arches will turn with the wheels.
