Banning lifts with stability control

The federal government is at it again wanting to ban suspension upgrades on vehicle's with traction/stability control.


Government misplaced policy reform threatens vehicle safety.

Australian automotive suppliers have become global leaders in the design and manufacture of high quality 4WD parts and accessories, improving the safety and functionality of these vehicles.
To provide evidence of the safety of the products that these suppliers design and manufacture, the Australian automotive aftermarket industry has undertaken extensive independent testing both in Australia and the USA to validate the engineering integrity and ongoing regulatory compliance of vehicles.

Despite this evidence, Minister Paul Fletcher and his Department are about to make it much harder and more expensive to modify vehicles.

Ah yes; the nanny state wants to intervene into our lives ever more obtrusively

You are a clueless weasel that lacks even a shred of understanding our world!!!

Nothing these blithering idiots do surprises me anymore
Major party sponsorship from Company X
Results in laws to circumvent Company Y's product
Yet they hide behind bureaucratic nonsense :monkey:

That are creating a host of new rules for importing vintage vehicles also..... Basically everything now has to be asbestos free and how that is determined is not clearly stated. Apparently a guy brought in an old Mustang and it had to be stripped down to parts at the docks, at his expense to remove anything that may or may not of had asbestos in it eg, brakes, clutch and cylinder head gaskets.

Another dopey rule that is to be voted on this week is any heavy vehicle legally imported previously will have to also be retroactively inspected to ensure the no asbestos compliance

Going to start calling politicians 2 dicks as cant get that silly playing with one

Sheesh... if they want to start doing something positive about asbestos, then clean-up campaigns for fencing materials would produce a far greater impact. The laneways around my neighbourhood are littered with shedding fence material and broken bits.

The amount in old vehicles would be a pin drop in comparison.

Maybe common sense will prevail.
Quote from the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association

Due to the great response from all, the below video achieved 105,000 views reaching 305,000 people, generating 3,700 reactions, comments and shares.

This has now resulted in the Departmental head making contacting with Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association and offering to fly to Melbourne to discuss ‘a way forward’. This meeting will take place next Tuesday.

Politicians & common sense? That's an uncommon occurrence Clarky. I've had to meet & speak to a few over the years, never came across one I liked. First impression of all of them was hand shake like holding a dead fish, totally untrustworthy & don't let him get behind you. I'm sure there must be good ones, but it's probably easier to find a unicorn. While I'm on the soapbox, the present debacle with politicians & dual citizenship. If these people are in the job under false pretences, shouldn't they be prosecuted & lose all benefits obtained or likely to be received because of these false pretences? Sorry for the rant Clarky, every time I see these idiots come up with another dumb idea That will have a huge negative effect on a very large number of people & no positive effect on anybody it lights my fuse.
