    thanks guys

    NiN^_^NiN's right though, it would be a shame to smash up your car after installing a PC, especialy if you have done a fair bit of fabrication, insurance companies dont pucker up any tighter then a snare drum when it comes to making claims

    hopefully i can make it to the meet in sept\oct, im hoping for late october so i can put some birthday cash into the hilux.... and mabey be more cautious with acids heh heh

    btw.....

    wtf is with no pictures?!!

    diddnt gazza and mulder say they where taking cameras? damn!!

    serves me right for beying careless at work i suppose

    Standard test the insurance company does it to so if u have a crash and the tyres are out of the body of the vehicle by a set amount then they won't pay you.

    Im guessing it's safety if your car drops the wheels need to be able to slide up inside the guard of the car.

    I did bring my camera, but as NIN^ ^NIN stated, I didn't get around to getting it out. It was sitting in my center console the whole meet fully charged and ready to go. Sorry Guys. Overall the meet went well with plenty of ideas/problems talked about. It's good to see the different ways that people have things running. I'll definately come along to future meets. I am more than happy to have a few beers (and then a few more), but I would rather leave my car at home then..

    Cheers,

    Just on wheel size. For those 4X4ers out there. If you raise the height of your tyres more than 30 mm (i think), then your car is 'technically' unroadworthy unless you get an engineers report. The reason is that by increasing the rolling circumfrance, the load on your brakes is increased. If the insurance company wanted to be picky they probably wouldn't have to pay if I had a crash. Fingers crossed....

    Oh I don't condone drink driving don't get me wrong. I just think it'd be nice if we all pulled up somewhere, sat down, had a few drinks, let it out of our system then went home. Make an evening out of it sort of thing. Maybe even a Grand Final get together.

    And I had my cam in the laptop bag but didn't think to have it whipped out for pics. Was too busy admiring the shelf.
