    hi,
    In the process of finalizing club rego and 2 question to ask if anyone can help.
    1 - What is the Manufacturer GVM/GCM (kg) of my 2 seater twin turbo ?
    2 - Another questions just says - Outside wheels - What needs to be in that part.
    Thanks all.
    Dave

    A quick check of Google shows GVWR is indeed the same as GVM

    "The gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), or gross vehicle mass (GVM) is the maximum operating weight/mass of a vehicle as specified by the manufacturer including the vehicle's chassis, body, engine, engine fluids, fuel, accessories, driver, passengers and cargo but excluding that of any trailers."

    So the answer to your question (which you can back up with the above link) is your GVM is 1620 kg.

    No idea. I can not believe how easy the process was. A new set of tyres is all she needed. I did not fill in the wheels outside section. Vic roads was a breeze. They normally lube you up and bend you over but this time just put what info I filled in and handed over the plates. Now I only pay $70 a year rego for a 45 day permit. Considering I would be lucky to take it out of the shed 1 day a year it is a lot better on the wallet.

    Can confirm that this is an easy process. I've also just gotten club plates and it was a breeze.

    How did you guys go with roadworthies? That's the only concern I have at the moment & only because I've got upgraded suspension, not sure rose joints are allowable.
    Also which clubs have people been joining?

    I had to put 4 new tyres on it and that's all. My car is a mint example of a Zed. 2 of the tyres had done hardly any ks but had a slight wear on the inside. I was more than happy to replace them considering that's all he found :). He was very thorough and went over it from top to bottom. The thing is you just don't know what sort of day they are having and can only suck it an see. No use arguing with them. The rwc cost $165 - 4 new tyres $450 (I know a bloke ;)) and rego $75 so really the same as normal rego for a year and next year just $75. Considering it will do less than 100 ks a year $75 is a lot fairer. I joined a club that is to do with the kind of work I do :D so maybe even a tax deduction :rolleyes:. I had a old bloke fail a rwc on a motor bike because it had no front plate once, I gave up arguing with him that motor bikes do not have front plates and rode it to the local Vic Roads and told the guy behind the counter what happened. He nearly fell over laughing then regoed it for me. So as I said it depends on who you get. The bloke I used this time said that Vic Roads is in the process of re training all testers to try and get consistency.
    Cheers
