Yeah I just got two TA03s, one is a Subaru Impreza, the other is a Corolla WRC........still assembling the Corolla, but have driven neither yet. Don't plan on racing them, though..........

Default Picture

Here you go; the Lancer in the foreground is a TB-01 which I run in rally configuration now - when the touring car races come around, I use a carbon fibre chassis and it's a pretty mean weapon there too...........

Kinda hard, if you are going to rally on gravel-type terrain, the sand will get into the top pulley on each gearbox and foul it up. You need a totally sealed geartrain, something like a TA01/02 or a TB01.

zxt

so what did you do to your TL-01 to make it a Rally? i think with those stuff that you did to your TL-01 you can do it to a TA03.

I don't think the dirt will foul it out since the belt/pulley is so high up.

You could try, but the way I figure, the tires are slinging the debris from the ground around at unbelievable speeds that the pebbles and stones get everywhere. At least make a lexan shield to protech the plastic pulley areas...............
