Hot Rod Hill Climb Tech Inspection

Hot Rod Hill Climb Participants!!

What is the Tech Inspection about?   It’s another set of eyes on your car.

Together Precision Designs and The Colorado Springs Rod and Custom Club will be doing tech inspections at the events. It’s a very simple once over on your Hot Rod, these guys know their stuff, if they find something that needs attention they will help probably help you get it fixed.

This is a great place to see the cars up close!

What these guys offered to do for HRHC, was look over the cars for anything that might be unsafe or questionable.

  • Brakes
  • Tires & Wheels
  • Brackets & Suspension
  • Doors stay closed
  • Steering is solid and tight
  • Seat belts
  • Oil and fuel lines
  • Throttle Linkage (cant go over center, needs throttle return spring)
  • Fluid leaks
  • Battery hold down
  • Wiring
  • Exhaust hangers
  • Fire Extinguisher (please have one in the car)
  • Helmets for Open Cars

It’s really just another set of eyes on the car, we’ve had loose radius rods out back, broken welds on the frame, loose king pins, a few weak throttle springs, and tie rods that were too low for the road.

The hill is no joke… its a climb.

Emergency brakes are highly recommended, just in-case you need it, safety.

That’s about it.

If you are not in the Hot Rod Hill Climb, and  just want your car inspected, the crew will be at the KOA on Friday 10am-4pm, these guys are happy to do it for you.

Here’s a look at the Tech Card we use at the events, all of these things will be looked at.
