Just confirming registration standards and roadworthiness requirements in Australia (Victoria),

So the only issue for a film correct black on black pursuit special is the supercharger height exceeding 165mm from the bonnet...

and the preferred course of action is to remove the supercharger, fully register the vehicle then re-install the supercharger but be prepared to be stopped by Police/inspectors and have the vehicle defected?

What is the actual height from the bonnet to the top of the hat by the way?

Ah pretty sure its just more then the "height" issue... and the height ISNT 165mm. Look carefully at the picture...

In just about all Australian states its illegal to have ANY bonnet protusions.. like an aircleaner etc.... it MUST be covered up by a scoop.

Also remember that if you do get pulled over you wont be able to drive the car more then likely.. and have to have it towed home as the car isnt road legal.

It will be up to the cop who pulls you over and why he pulled you over!

Its not worth the risk of having the car impounded.

I still can't get over all the crazy regulations you guy have to put up with. Getting pulled over for a scoop or tall induction is unheard of here. The tire width regs are also very bazaar. Ya'll have such cool machines and some crazy laws keep you from enjoying them as you see fit. :(

Sadly over the years the minority of bad drivers out there have meant more and more rules and regs.

But on the flip side the idea of limiting stuff sticking out of the bonnet is also there to stop pedestrians being killed by sharp objects.

Also the rules of tyre rims has been relaxed finnally... it seems as long as it fits under the guards its now legal!

Ill have to look it up to make sure however.

Yes. That is what most of the performance car people do. You get the defect, and you have 7-14 days to get it inspected. In that time, remove the carby/blower, throw on a spare hood, and get it passed.

The real issue with the max blower is the moving belt above the hood. That is a BIG no-no. The only semi viable solution I've figured, is to have it being a dummy that can be knocked off by 40kg of force (it is attached to an mount on the engine with velco.)

The modified car rules got even tougher on the 1st January. There was a big protest at Eastern creek about it, but that mainly turned out to be lip service. You can have a 4x4 or a truck with a bullbar that would slice'n'dice a pedestrian, but not a hood scoop because that could hurt a pedestrian if you hit them. If you hit a pedestian, the 1 ton of car going at 60kmph has enough kinetic energy to make the effects of a scoop null and void. The minister claims that people who are hit can not roll onto the hood. Well, you don't roll onto the hood, you get flipped over the car when hit. It also means that people mover vans and light truck that have no hood, just a flat face, should be banned, and there is no where for people to roll over using the same logic. You only move is under the van, where the under carrage, and spinning tail shaft will tear you up.

You can have a buddist temple/pray roll hanging from your mirror that swings into the drivers face obscuring their vision, but not a hood scoop.

A person under 25 can not drive my car because it is a v8 (not that I'd let anyone drive it anyway), but they could drive my daily driver which is a v6 turbo and has way way more acceleration, power and top speed than the 35 yr old v8.
The laws are made by idiots with the sole intention of getting older cars off the road so they increase the coffers by the taxes on new car sales.

I'm happy to publicly debate the minister or any senior person from the RTA anytime over their stupidity and inconsistent rules. That's a public challenge.
