Assuming all goes well money wise am or will be looking at getting a quad bike in aprox a years time but the car I have currently is a 1.4 Nissan Almera Ambition petrol
Was curious on a few points :
1. Is it possible to adjust the tuning of the car ie torque so that it is better at pulling instead of speed and if so is this very costly to do ?
If answer to question 1 is it is costly then I presume its cheaper to buy another car, if so any suggestions ( hoping no bigger then a 1.5 petrol, not sure on the diesel side although I do know that I don't want insurance / tax etc to be expensive )
I won't be towing more then aprox 15 miles , not massively hilly from what I am aware.
Dry weight of quad bike as per specs is 279 Kg
Quad bike has a 16.3 litre fuel tank + Oil, Brake fluid and any other liquids if I am missing anything ??
Not sure how much the liquids will weigh ( fuel, oil etc ) so I would guesstimate the total weight of quad bike ( wet weight ) at around 350Kg give or take a bit
Trailer will be aprox 140Kg for arguements sake
About 500Kg in total
I presume my 1.4 would be able to tow it, am not expecting to be able to go fast and I think 50 or 60 mph is the max ( could be wrong on this - need to check around )
Also will be looking at doing the soddin towing course ( as I passed my drivers license in 2008 which is obviously after 1997, dang and blast :-S
Any ideas on the cost of the towing course and roughly what this entails - been reading around on DVLA etc and am getting a little confused with it all - just need the simples answer :D
