Default Rally Weapon

How are these? I know that they are old but could i use xxx-s parts for replacements and also is this a good basher or will it break like crazy?

They aren't as strong as an HPI rally car, so combining that with the fact that parts are difficult to find, they aren't very popular. They're fast though. If you have the parts, go ahead and get one. I have an HPI myself, parts are no problem, and the only time I've broken it was racing onroad

actually i have both the rally weapon and the hpi rally. i find the rally weapon stronger and better off road. its the rally car of choice where i race on the dirt.

the parts for the xxx-s are not interchangeable. however, most of the parts with the street weapon are the same (except the shocks and the knuckles) and many with the xx-4 too. i have no problem finding parts, plenty of stock still around.

I have to agree with Treky,

My Rally Weapon is far better on the rough stuff then the my old hpi.

I have not had a hard time findiong parts for it either.

It depends on what you have in them. They are both real great cars IMO. With like $100 you can turn the rally into a fast, losibeating machine. I have an HPI rally, and i love it.
