@  stickman007 : (03 August 2015 - 06:42 PM) Markjohn: check your engine harness before replacing anymore parts! Most MB dealership are close to useless when it comes to repairing smarts...find a good smart independent mechanic (I recommend smart142)
@  stickman007 : (03 August 2015 - 06:38 PM) Mine just started working again today
@  FlossyTheSmart : (03 August 2015 - 11:56 AM) And on that same topic, if you ARE getting emails, it would also be handy to know that they are in fact going out!
@  FlossyTheSmart : (03 August 2015 - 10:21 AM) If anyone is still having issues with not getting emails from CsC, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know!
@  FlossyTheSmart : (03 August 2015 - 10:21 AM) OK, I think I've set up a workaround so that emails will go out as usual. Now I need to figure out why the previous config (Which has been working for years) isn't working anymore. The last email I got from CsC was July 22nd
@  Markjohn : (03 August 2015 - 09:47 AM) Hello all my smart 800 diesel keeps going in to limp mode it had 3 boost sensors had dia gnostic at Mercedes andthay don't no wot 2 do next any ideas please
@  FlossyTheSmart : (03 August 2015 - 09:38 AM) Uh oh, just discovered CsC hasn't been able to send emails for a while :\
@  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?

Over the coming weeks (and months perhaps) you will begin to see some substantial forum layout changes. The BoD is discussing and agreeing on the changes ahead of time, and you can be sure we are thinking big picture and about what the end result will look like.The Marketplace and Regional Groups will be the first to see significant changes. Regional forums will be significantly merged. The Marketplace will be broken out into cars, parts and wheels/tires to help members navigate easier. We may consider moving closed topics (sold items, ended promotions) into an archival sub-forum.We will then be breaking out General Vehicle Operation, Modification and performance and How-To forums into their own group, giving both the 450 and 451 each their own direct top-level access. We are looking to do away with sub-forums here, and eliminate the confusing layers.There will be other changes considered in due course (like the front page of the site perhaps). If you have any suggestions, send a PM to one of the BoD members.President - LeadwingSecretary - smartzuukTreasurer - SameGuyWebmaster - SpeedieMember at Large (450) - Mike TMember at Large (451) - jwight We are also looking for additional moderators for selected forums - please watch for a post about that shortly.Club smart Car turns 7 in 2012... and it's time for a refresh!Cheers,Keith

Site Feedback has been moved from the bottom group up to the top group. There are no foums in the bottom group viewable by regular members - it is now used for Site Administration.The BoD is in the midst of discussing other changes which will be done one at a time, and starting soon!Cheers,Keith

In the Marketplace forums, new and regular members are restricted from replying to topics in Self-Promotion and the Member Classifieds forums.You can still use private message (PM), e-mail and phone. We are intentionally discouraging conversations from occuring in what are essentially classifieds listings.

We're nearing the point of significantly merging the regional forums from 24 down to 8 forums, with all remaining at the top level. Here's the expected list: Not neccessarily in this order: Vancouver Island The Rest of BC Southern Ontario (to be sure, I checked: Niagara to Windsor: http://soto.on.ca/ ) The Rest of Ontario The Prairies (AB/SK/MB) Eastern Canada (Quebec to Cape Spear) USA and The Rest of the World Canada Wide Events 8 forums only When important events occur, they can be pinned in each respective forum. We will moderate the forums as they are to be about events only, and/or significant discussions that are regionally specific. Selling parts, and chit-chat are a no go. Anything smart related has a forum, so those topics would get moved as required. To be sure, no old topics will be sifted through. The forum they would get merged into is their final resting place. Please PM a BoD member with any questions/concerns. Thank you! Keith

Hi,We have completed the merging of all the Regional forums.Next up: Technical ForumsAs a first step, we have moved all the Technical forums to the 'top-level' within a new group.Moderators will be tasked with cleaning up some topics leftover in three of the forums, and then we will eliminate them. There will probably be a total of seven technical forums, 3 each for the 450 and 451, and a 7th forum which catches all the leftover topics.See the pinned topic in the Technical forums for more informartion.Thanks,Keith
