LVVTA GOES DIG­I­TAL

NZ Performance Car - - Line Inside -

The Low Vol­ume Ve­hi­cle Tech­ni­cal As­so­ci­a­tion (LVVTA) has changed the name of the NZ Hobby Car Tech­ni­cal Man­ual to The New Zealand Car Con­struc­tion Man­ual to ac­knowl­edge that more mod­i­fiers are us­ing the man­ual as a build and mod­i­fi­ca­tion guide, be­yond its orig­i­nal hob­by­ist­based tar­get mar­ket. Any thoughts can be headed up ‘Car Con­struc­tion Man­ual changes’ and emailed to info@lvvta.org.nz.

The LVVTA has also made The New Zealand Car Con­struc­tion Man­ual avail­able for elec­tronic pur­chase through its new online shop — which can be ac­cessed di­rectly via lvvta.org.nz/shop or through the ‘ Doc­u­ments’ drop-down menu on the LVVTA web­site. Hard-copy ver­sions are still avail­able through the New Zealand Hot Rod As­so­ci­a­tion’s web­site, hotrod.org.nz. While the hard-copy costs $150, the online ver­sion is just $110, tak­ing into ac­count the costs as­so­ci­ated with print­ing, fold­ing, and tabs. One bonus of the online ver­sion is that in­di­vid­ual chap­ters can be pur­chased, al­low­ing you to get ex­actly what you need.

LVVTA chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Tony John­son says, “This could be use­ful for some­one who has a car where all the owner wants to do is in­stall a big­ger alu­minium fuel cell. With the way the shop is set up, they can go to our web­site and buy just Chap­ter 1 – Fuel Sys­tems, and have ev­ery­thing they need for $10.99.”

Chap­ters such as the Build Ap­proval Process, Author­ity Card Process, and the ex­plana­tory and back­ground sec­tions are free of charge. The online sys­tem pro­vides for on-the-spot down­loads, mean­ing there’s no wait­ing around for the courier. The trans­ac­tion will also be reg­is­tered with the LVVTA, with the buyer be­ing no­ti­fied of any chap­ter up­dates. There are no ex­cuses not to build that street-le­gal monster now!
