Yea going through steve are you? I might have to go accuair but ive already got all my 1/2" valves etc and 3/8" seems slow. Did you get the whole e-level package or just the valve block and yea it would save a lot of head scratching...

Ben,
Craig messaged me about this. I told him QUOTE FOR QUOTE, EXACTLY what the Hobby car manual says. He looked it up himself while we were talking. I even rung Clint Field, A mate of mine, and a certifier up here. He confirmed what I read in the manual, and said all you can really do is challenge him with a print out of what the hobby car manual says, OR find another certifier.
If he not going to cert it even though you have down what you need to do, then find someone else. You would have to go with an E Level kit or similar to do what he wants.

This was weeks ago. You could have driven to Chch by now and used a certifier whos actually knows what hes talking about...

We have a hobby car manual for a reason. Its so we can know exactly what we need to do when modifying our vehicles. What is the point in having the book, when cert guys make up their own rules?

Hey matt, yea I was out there yesterday and I had the hobby car manual with me and he still seems set on the fact that anyone has to be able to get in and drive it so therefore it has to go to ride height.

My utes still stripped down to a chassis at the moment I was just asking about this whilst I ran a couple of other things past him. Thanks

The only reason he is dead set on having it auto lift on start is that if their is an accident or someone hasto move your truck for any reason they can which is pretty stupid but im glad ive got accuair its so tidy and easy.

Ben ive just got the accuair brain and sensors with other brand valves you can use your 1/2" valves with accuair so if you do buy it you wont have to buy the valve block.

Ok that's good to know. Are you running 1/2" with the e level then?
Also are you using steve Rhodes for cert?

Im running 3/8 valves but they are mounted real close to the baggs so they are plenty fast enough. yup still with rhodes. how far into yours are you?

Don't do it, the guys in the states that do it have smooth roads to drive on. With a ball joint flip you will basically have the whole front end weight carried on a couple of nuts, It's not worth the risk.
