You deserve much more than that if you have a flamer kit....Peter & Lorna said:As seen in two tabloid papers today, Cossie owner successfully done for using it on the road spat out 10ft flames according to Old Bill ! £100 fine £35 costs and 3 points to boot.But what happens if your car flames out anyway without kit
yeh, just say your highly tuned road legal engine gives off the odd barbeque every now and then, nothing you can do about itNumptyScrub said:There is a big difference between a kit specifically installed only to produce flames out of the exhaust when turned on, and a vehicle that produces flames as a by-product of it's normal working.
Not knowing the specifics of either the legislation involved or the case in point, I can only suggest that a couple of expert testimonials on rich-running, tuned turbocharged vehicles proclivity to flame spontaneously under certain driving conditions might have some bearing on the actual sentencing if you didn't have a flamer kit. Just remember not to mention it's anti-lag and pretend it always does that
He was done for driving a car in a dangerous state. The argument being that the flames could harm other cars, pedestrians etc. So I guess in that way it doesn't matter if it is a flamer kit or just running rich/anti-lag etc, you might suffer the same fate. However having the odd flash and burst of flame is somewhat different to what a flamer kit produces so I wouldn't overly worry!NumptyScrub said:Not knowing the specifics of either the legislation involved or the case in point
