Default Still not clear

The part I am not getting is what kind of jumps we are talking about
I assume when people speak about "rally" racing they do not mean simply runing a TC with a slightly modified chassis on a off road course designed for buggys and trucks.

Would a generic 1/10 Electric TC (TC3 XXX-S) with heavy shocks and different wheels and tires race on a "rally" course.

when people talk about a rally are they thinking of a TC like car you can run off road as long as there are no actual "jumps" like off road specific cars race on?

It seems like people are calling some rather different tracks "rally"

Are there any national races which feature a "rally" class.

My G.V. is an oversized touring car/buggy. It's platform is multi-genre. It was designed to serve a dual purpose, but when you combine the touring car body with the buggy wheels, and raise the suspension a bit you have the rally car pictured on the G.V. page.

You can get an HPI RS4 rally which would be an awsome rally car. It has deep suspension travel and plush shocks to soak up the rough stuff. HPI also makes Pirelli rally tire replicas for the rally enthusiast. There is also a TC3 conversion out there too I beleive, that will widen it up a bit and allow it to take some harder hits and larger ruts. Jumping is no problem, just as long as there is enough suspension travel to keep the landings under control. If the chassis hits too hard and bounces off the ground it can cause you to lose control of the car.

most people probably dont run their "touring-based" rally cars on tracks with huge, "mount everest" jumps, but as long as you land o.k. they will jump with the best of them.

Ok, I was relly not meaning huge stadium truck jumps. For example, in the last weekend race, we put in the track a 1 foot jump. It required a great amount of ability to take the jump correctly, specially since you are running against the clock.
