@  Francesco : (01 August 2015 - 09:31 AM) Cool, thanks
@  CANMAN : (01 August 2015 - 03:55 AM) Yes it's Max
@  Francesco : (01 August 2015 - 12:39 AM) I forget who in the NCR was printing SGII brackets. max? It's that time of year when the heat inside my parked smart causes the heavy duty Velcro to unglue from both surfaces, which puts strain on the wonky RJ45 and causes the SAM to throw a P0113 code...
@  marchanna : (28 July 2015 - 11:51 AM) Yup. Sometimes the simplest is the best.
@  Mike T : (28 July 2015 - 11:07 AM) Best idea yet!
@  marchanna : (28 July 2015 - 08:39 AM) It fits nicely in the back of the Benz if I put the seats down. I just thought it would be novel to put it on the back of the Smart.
@  Francesco : (27 July 2015 - 08:10 PM) Or wheelie bars
@  Mike T : (27 July 2015 - 08:07 PM) Preferably, use a larger vehicle.
@  Francesco : (27 July 2015 - 08:05 PM) I would think a trailer is your only option. The physics is just wrong in a couple of dimensions to be hanging 300 lbs behind the rear wheels
@  marchanna : (27 July 2015 - 07:27 PM) Check it out: can-drift.com
@  marchanna : (27 July 2015 - 07:21 PM) It's an electric drift trike. I wanted to see if I could fab a vertical rack on the back of the Smart. The trike weighs about 200lbs - I could probably build an aluminum rack as light as 50lbs - but that still the exceeds the tongue weight of the hitches, thought maybe the towing bolt holes could hold a little more weight.
@  Francesco : (27 July 2015 - 04:50 PM) even the trunk weight is recommended to be no more than 50 kg...
@  Francesco : (27 July 2015 - 04:49 PM) Wow, I have no idea what you're attempting but that sounds like too much weight for the rear of the smart altogether, not just for the two bolts.
@  marchanna : (27 July 2015 - 08:01 AM) I want to hold about 300lbs across of them.
@  marchanna : (27 July 2015 - 07:59 AM) Yes
@  Francesco : (27 July 2015 - 07:43 AM) Vertical?
@  marchanna : (27 July 2015 - 06:32 AM) Anyone know how much load the towing eye bolt hold in the rear bumper of a 451 can carry?

On Sunday May 15, 2011, we will meet at the Home Depot at 1:00pm in Eagle (State Street and Highway 55) and drive up to Banks, across to Lowman, and back down to Boise, stopping along the way for sight seeing, then stop for dinner at either Trudy's Kitchen in Idaho City or the Kodiak Grill near Lucky Peak at about 6:00pm.

Have a great time! We'll be wishing we were there. We'll tell the relatives in Boise about it.

We had a rainy day for the cruise, even a little bit of snow over the mountain pass, but it was not sticking to the road. Four smart cars did the loop: my 2003, a 2005 and two 2008 smart cars. We saw a lot of high water runoff in the rivers and had to watch closely for rocks on the road.Looking forward to this annual event again next year!Tom
