Fugly Rego Stickers Gone


GTR-N1

Recommended Posts

As of 1/1/13 those fugly rego stickers can be ripped off - yes, even existing ones.

Until then, they need to stay on.

ACT guys have to keep theirs on until 1/7/13.

SA & WA guys are way ahead of us.

Nah, fugly means fugly!

I'd only keep it if I had an ADM GTR perhaps.

The downside of the absence of a sticker, might be when a car is dumped in your street with the plates removed.

How do you report its specifics then?

It just means that when HWP pulls you over, they'll already have...

a) in date or out of date rego details

b) owner details

c) address

Then when you're asked for your licence, you may be then asked...

i) if you're the person on this licence

ii) are you the registered owner (to determine if you're lying)

...and so on.

Stickers should be staying.

I don't care what they look like, they're "the norm"

While police setup an RBT station they always look for those stickers, you may not notice it, but they do. Now it's going to be harder for them to quickly identify unregistered cars.

Why should you be more concerned?

Well now it's going to be easier to get away with an unregistered car, meaning cars that can potentially hit your pride and joy, and wont be insured. People can more easily do a runner from an incident ecause the plates don't match the address to which the car really belongs, etc etc.

Once again a stupid move by RMS to just save more money.

How many registered cars in NSW/ACT? Factor a dollar to two dollars to prep and send each receipt. Yet we don't get a rego payment cut, and they sure as hell won't put more money into our roads either.

All ACT police now carry a Camera that process 6 cars a second.

No need for them to try see your rego sticker.

I agree though.

This excersise is more for revenue raising and redcuing human admin overhead !!

They are attempting to take pics of cars in the Club car parks so if they see you on the road in the next several hours they can pull you over.

It's being fought as an invasion of privacy by some but I expect the PC will let it pass...........

No longer will you actually have to be caught doing something wrong to be pulled over.

this is happening in all states and the only reason they look at the sticker is so they can fine you for not having a current one

The sticker doesnt mean the registration is current so I dont see how that is a major issue. And if someone is going to do a runner with stolen plates I wouldnt expect them to stop and hang around for you to check out their sticker and vin.

Hi Terry,

Our family has 3 cars registered in December and 2 in November.... Does this mean I can remove the stickers on 1.1.2013?

I thought I'd need to keep them on till next year?

Cheers,

Bob.

Yes Bob, NRMA (which has me on their mailing list) made this announcement last week.

They quoted RMS as saying that it's optional after 1/1/13 for NSW Rego stickers to be on or off and thus, existing stickers can be removed.

Matt and I both have December Rego stickers. They of course will only remain on the glass for a matter of days. :)

    • Hey I have a spare CAS unit if you wanted to borrow or buy
    • All issues mentioned are mitigated by running billet gears and a long nose crank. My question pertains more to the oil pump housing differences. I already have an RB25 pump housing I wanted to put billet pump gears in. I was wondering if there's any advantage if I purchase an N1 pump instead and put billet gears into that. Even stranger is I found a link (One in OP) that states the RB25 pump housing is actually preferable which I'm wondering why.   Thanks
    • In the middle of the rb25 upgrade on the rb20. Its actually a Arashi bolt on. Its in and lined up perfect First question is can I use a standard hose as my oil return line? New turbo fitting is shorter and having to  change the line/hose The oil supply/intake hose has a smaller hole than stock. Not sure I should go back with the old one   Any other tips would be appreciated   
    • So just to update: I changed the brushes over and polished the commutator using a 1500 grit sanding sponge; it was super easy to polish being copper. A power tool wasn't necessary, although could have made it easier if you have the finesse to use it well.     Yet this was to no avail, the motor worked as it did before, stop, start, stop start, etc. Today I went to my mechanic's shop to do a few things. I showed him the motor and asked in broken Japanese "who can fix this?", he took it from me and had a crack, was able to fix it-ish. From what I could understand (which is very little), the problem with the motor was with the clutch disc located amongst the gears, I saw it whilst he was working but couldn't identify any issues. I say he fixed it-ish, because now the motor will run continuously when free from the rack, which is great. But once I had reinstalled it, the tilt function would work but the sliding function sounded off, like the motor was under more load than before and the motor was struggling. We're going to pull apart the rack in the new year and see what we can find.  Hopefully this is of some help to others that get sunroof motor issues with their R34, S15 Silvia, or highly unlikely the Z10 cube. I will update this when more progress is made.
    • AFAIK in the RB26 section of the service manual it explicitly says not to take apart the AAC valve. If you took it apart once there's no harm in taking it apart again to see if you can save it.
