The Losi8 buggy could make a fine “Rally” car too. It’s a real good chassis for off-road racing.
You’ll need to experiment with different bodies to see what would clear the stock off-road shock towers or fabricate smaller towers and use front shocks in the rear too.
In Europe they call these classes “Rally Game”, some searching on the internet could find out if they’re using these chassis and maybe pick up some useful tips for it too.
The Losi8 could work very well with the single speed center diff, the need for a 2-speed would depend on how “open” or “technical” the track it would be racing on. I guess a 2-speed could be adapted if none were available from the manufacturer.
In a worst case scenario, if it wasn’t competitive as a “Rally GT” car with the 1-speed center diff, it could always be turned back into a monster off-road buggy again.
