Talk torque automotive and Les Richmond Automotive have been working together to help simplify the engineering process and to help keep the costs involved as low as possible.
A modified car vehicle will fall into 1 of the following 4 categories.
All vehicles with an increased height of less than 50mm fitted with larger tyres.
An example of this is a Discovery 2 fitted with 265 x 75 x 16 tyres with a 25mm spring lift.
Not many people know but a vehicle simply modified like this is deemed to be illegal. The good news is it is not difficult to obtain and engineers report for this style vehicle.
All vehicles with an increased height of more than 50mm and no more than 150mm
Most modified vehicles fall into this group. It really does not take much to raise a vehicle more than 50mm. Vehicles in this section are subject to cornering, braking and evasive action testing.
Vehicles raised more than 150mm
Unfortunately due to the current laws this style vehicle is outside the engineering bounds and can not be legally engineered in Australia.
Falls within Category 1-3 but has other modifications like Engine conversions, chassis modifications, Non Land rover axles fitted, etc etc etc......
These vehicles will fall into the above but the extra / conflicting modification will have to be engineered separately for the extra modifications.
