    LS7 checklist

    HIGH LIFT - 50mm to 150mm ( DESIGN CHANGE )
    Code LS7 provides for the preparation of designs that may be approved by Registration Authorities for use by other signatories or modifiers. The designs under Code LS7 cover the design of vehicle lifts in excess of 50mm but not more than 150mm.

    Code LS7 does not apply to ADR category L-group vehicles and motor cycles.
    DESIGNS COVERED BY CODE LS7
    The following is a summary of the designs that may be prepared under Code LS7:
     Design of modifications that combined result in the vehicle body being raised by more than 50mm but less than 150mm from the original as manufactured height;
     Design of front suspension modifications using different struts or uprights;
     Design of independent rear suspension modifications using different struts, trailing arms or uprights;
     Design of a conversion using a complete suspension assembly from a different vehicle model;
     Design of a complete rear suspension assembly using components from different vehicle model(s); and
     Alternative wheel and tyre specifications for vehicles with modified axles or suspension.

    DESIGNS NOT COVERED BY CODE LS7
    Designs that are not covered under Code LS7 are listed below:
     Design for vehicles originally equipped with ESC that have not been approved by the vehicle manufacturer or proven through testing;
     Certification of the actual physical modification of particular vehicles (this is covered by Code LS8);
     Design for modifications that raise the vehicle body more than 150mm from the original as manufactured height (lifting vehicles beyond 150mm is outside of the scope of VSB 14); and
     Design for modifications that raise the vehicle body more than 50mm from the original as manufactured height on vehicles that have had the wheel track reduced from the as manufactured width. Modifications to these vehicles will only be considered on an individual application basis.

    LT2 checklist

    LT2 Lane change manoeuvre test
     
    The intent of these testing procedures is to subjectively determine the road holding ability and handling characteristics of vehicles that are required to be tested by other Sections of VSB 14. Testing is usually called for when vehicles are modified in such a way as to cause a significant change in the height of a vehicle’s centre of mass, and/or a significant change in the longitudinal centre of mass, such that it affects the way a vehicle handles.

    These tests are applicable only to vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) up to and including 3.5 tonne.
    The test must be carried out by an experienced test driver, who is required to produce a written report on the handling characteristics of the vehicle. Only when the owner can demonstrate prior experience as a test driver can he or she test his or her own vehicle. Since these are subjective tests, it is not sufficient for the driver to have negotiated the test successfully - the driver must also be confident that the vehicle was safe to drive.

    The test procedure utilises the test track described in the following International Organization for Standardization (ISO), International Standard.
    ISO Technical Report 3888-1:1999- Passenger cars - Test Track for a Severe Lane-Change Manoeuvre – Part 1: Double lane change test.
    The procedure consists of driving a vehicle through a set track that simulates an emergency lane-change manoeuvre. The vehicle is driven from its initial lane to another lane (parallel to the initial lane), then returning to the initial lane. The length of each track section remains constant whilst the track width is a function of the test vehicle width.
    The lane-change testing must be conducted under the guidance of a Signatory.
    The lane-change track must be negotiated by skilled drivers with automotive road testing experience.
