1.) Can't have anything sticking out of your hood, like a 2x4 set up or blower I think over 4 inches??.
2.) Can't tube your vehicle, and run street legal Mickey super singles (NO BIG FAT TIRES) I think is what they said???.
3.) Can't put a big block in a car that did'nt come from the factory with one in it!! I think they said you could but you have to go see an Engineer first and he/she will tell you what you can and can't do to your vehicle.. For some $$$$$ of course...
4.) can't own hand guns!!!
Allot of other things you can't do, so be happy we live over here!!. Yes some of their car's are cool but the laws are way too much for me!!
I hope some of the Locals jump in here and really let us know what the rules are over there...
Hey, you didn't mention that most of the country doesn't allow people to have fireworks!
You are pretty much right on what you said, but a lot of it has to do in which state you live. But it can be pretty tough.
The rules are constantly changing, but for a while back there, the widest rim you could run was 7 inches, and the track could me no more that 1 inch over stock. But with the factory these days bringing out a 9 inch wide option, it all seems pretty silly now. A lot has to do with where you are, and sometimes who you know.
As for guns, it's hard to own a semi automatic. Anything concealed is pretty much a no no.
It's all because some halfwit massacred 35 people (I Think), at Port Arthur 10years ago, and the govt tightened the gun laws as a result.
