Default On-Road Rally

Spent this Sunday afternoon at a crawler / rally car event at a mall. Now I remember why I love rc cars, back to having fun

+ YouTube Video

My daughter ran a TA05 with front one-way to flick the rear around tight corners. White Subaru body.

Around 30 drivers and 50 rally/crawlers showed up... and not a single transponder in sight, imagine that. Playing r/c cars for fun

So cool! RC is so alive in your area. Rally ftw!

I like the "not a transponder on sight". Back to the fun aspect.

Win or lose, everyone had fun. We do not need bowling trophies to have fun

Playing rc in front of spectators... that is a fun feeling.

R/C is not dying. We are still playing with our toy cars somewhere, the racing community just doesn't know about it

No ugly blob bodies!

Now I understand why bashers do not want to join organized racing... they are already having too much fun

Awesome looking rally body, headlight overkill yes!

I see you are using a TA05. I just picked l up a new stock TA05 from eBay. How did you set yours up for rally? Being that this is my first TA05, I wanted to experiment with different setups. I see that it's suspension is quite low compared to the xv-01 I have. The stock springs are super hard.
