cool pics

Any of those still in production???

Seems rally is alive and well in europe, but no kits that I know of:

http://www.rcrallysport.com/
http://www.rca-ck.com/

From what I understand everyone's using modified touring chassis
what about in the U.S:???

maybe its time these companies pay attention to this class, specially since it can be so cheap! The HPI sprint I'm running can be had for as low as 189.99 rtr version... I love it since I can just add some rally tires, new rally body, raise it a bit and its good to go! And then I can always go back and run it as a GT... In fact that's what we're doing over here, starting a rally/GT class... two classes for the price of one

actually if you can find the 200mm conversion for a tc3/4, then you raise it a little bit and put rally tires on it you have an amazingly stable and fast car... probably your best bet for serious rally IMO

Yea,

The HPI RS4 Rally was AWESOME!

We used to have a HUGE rally class at my local track. Most Ever was 23 cars that turned out. We had a points setup similar to the WRC. We litterally drove them with parts hanging off JUST to earn points. We had some crazy racing in that class. SOOO much fun!

I converted mine to a Drift car, but im putting the rally suspension back on the car to run at my local track.

The HPI challenge races used to offer a Rally class, at it was a kick too.

I would look for longer shock shafts and slightly taller springs to give your car the clearance. I wouldn't think serious "offroad" would be tough, but mild dirt like a baseball field, or even gravel would be fine.

actually baseball fields are great fun with rally cars. do diamond runs. they are best wit ha few people(dont all have to be rally...) basically you time trial loops around the diamond. go from the plate, around first, outside second, around third, and back to the plate however many times you so choose. time it. let others run it. do it a few times and its fun. you start really moving good! and with rally cars you can slide it out so easily, especially with a smooth field. but stay off the grass!

now thinking about it, since most people use drift cars with longer shocks and dirt tires to make a rally car, why not just get the e10? you can pick one up for $80. add your radio and reciever and your ready to go. oh and those tires and shocks. in the end your up to like $120-$150 for a brand new ready to rally car... pretty sick idea huh? or you could get the full drift version ready to go for like $160. then you still need your tires and shocks.

Those are sweet vids by the OP. The only thing missing is the turbo wastegate whir on the downshifts. LOL!! "Phsst... Phsst.. Phsst"

I might be getting a used RS4 rally. I am really interested to see what I can do with it. The only problem is...that there are no more parts for this anymore...

Does anyone still use the RS4?

It's not quite rally, but we're going to try racing the Tamiya Pre-Runners and CC-01 chassis this summer. I'm contemplating on getting the recently released Pajero or the F-150 Pre-Runner.

guess what i'm doing with mine when it's done racing for the season

if you remove the shocks and move the front steering arrangement round (one screw each side!) then you can get an inch of clearance. all it needs is some longer shocks!

and you could probably use short front buggy shocks for that... but i gotta ask... you race an e10? they are non adjustable and stuff. do you race it spec class or something?
