  1. Brad, can you send me details on this? Thanks,
  2. Keep in mind the autopac positions in brokerages are usually very entry level and can be staffed by people fresh to insurance. I'd recommend calling MPI directly with any questions.
  3. Not an MPI rep but this is correct that a vehicle with wheels on the ground needs a plate if being on a tow dolly or flat towed. If on temp insurance it should be "safety-able" but they don't really enforce this from what I've seen.
  4. Haven't tried everything on the list but here's my input

    Used harness

    Awesome, I'll grab it at WOW. Thanks!

    Used harness

    Looking for a used harness, 4 or 5 point, can be expired. Just something to be occasionally used for a passenger seat.
  7. I had a good experience with RE71's on my S2000. Multiple hot lapping days with 20+ laps per day, plus some autoslalom. I ran them for 2 seasons, probably 150-ish laps on the old Gimli surface and a dozen or so autoslalom events. Now the car was rarely street driven other than driving to and from events and it's a fairly light car to begin with so your mileage might vary. They did not like the heat as much as I would have liked, which I imagine would only get worse on a heavier car. They had about 5-7 laps in them before they needed to cool off. I switched to Maxxis VR-1's and liked how those handled heat. Good amounts of grip when hot but they really lacked the cold bite the RE71's had, not sure I'd recommend them for autoslalom. I think you'll end up needing to make a compromise as I've yet to see a tire that excels at both autoslalom and track driving.
  8. Jim, do you know if this will be incorporated into safety inspections?
  9. Ontario is different for this type of thing since insurers have more discretion to deny or surcharge vehicles based on modifications and will cancel you if they get a whiff of motorsports. The person at the autopac location likely knows very little about this and I'd be willing to bet the person they spoke to at MPI was a CSR or something similar. A MPI claims person would likely be able to shed more light on how they would handle this situation, but I'm not sure they are available to speak to with questions. The area of the vehicle inspection book that might make reference to this is on page 31, section 10-7 - Frame and/or Structural Body Components. It states "(B) inspect for evidence of collision damage or additional welding on frame rails or unibody" and to reject (fail) if "(D) structural components does not meet OEM or I-CAR standards" MPI/rules aside, a cage is a bad idea for a street car. Higher costs to repair and potential to cause additional damage to the vehicle itself. Potential increases to both frequency and severity of injury, not to mention potential injury to passengers who may or may not be aware what a cage can do if you aren't wearing a helmet. Plus you are compromising the safety design of a vehicle, especially if it's newer and didn't come from the factory with a cage like the GT3RS. Calling Vehicle Standards/MPI for their official answer is likely the only way to confirm how they would respond.
  10. I'll investigate if you can provide the information Ken mentioned above. @SVOXR4STi, yours was a bounce so maybe check your email in MSR to make sure it's correct. @wolfgirl, you received to the email on file so it might be in your spam folder or something similar.
  11. @Jim Eh. Outside in the compound where we used to store the trailer?
  12. I had a great experience at Speedfactor getting custom specs done. Good equipment, good tech, not cheap but worth the cost IMO. Was around $200 if I remember correctly.
  13. Sort of depends on the vehicle/situation. If the cost to repair (minus the value of salvage) is higher than the ACV (actual cash value) of the vehicle just before the loss, it will in most cases be written off. Other factors include parts availability and loss of use costs.
