The RS4 is very resistant, not like associated cars. If you are running in very smooth dirt surfaces, the Associated car would tend to be a little bit more predictable, but the RS4 can handle all difficult tracks much more better than the TC3 or TC4.

In three years of using the RS4, I have never broke it, running rally and asphalt track. MyTC3 has not one single piece of the original kit.

HPI shouldnt have discontinued the RS4 Rally.

Here are some cool R/C rally pics I dug up out of our photo gallery....

We had a rally series going for about 4-5 years until this past season when it sorta lost steam. A bunch of us still have them and will bust them out again sometime soon....(I Hope)

This track was in one of our rally racers back yard.....

Nice pics, some big jumps there.

I have never seen the Losi car. Is it something based on the XXX4?

Does somebody know about other manufacturer making 1/10 electric rally cars?

I admit I did not read through all this but another thing that makes a rally car is they are usually 200 mm wide where most all electric TC's are 190.

Yes is a SW or a SW rally. The batteries in that car are supposed to be in a saddle config (3X3) but it looks like someone make a stick pack work. The car will be really unbalanced this way though.

Here's a pic of mine.This is my dirt oval car and it's a mix of rally and IWC parts but it looks pretty much correct.There's 3 rally threads going in this forum now-maybe it's time for a comeback! Sure sounds a like a lot more fun than on-road to me.

More and more people is interested in rally each week. Last season ender with 8 racers, new season in coming with 19 racers. (In my small city)

Some RC brand should really develope more of this cars.

nice car. Thats the normal configuration for the batteries on the car right?
I havn't tried the hpi pirelli rally tires yet. how are they on dirt? do they wear out as quickly on pavement as the regular hpi rally tires?
I agree with pep'. i think that if more companies continued to make good rally cars like the rs4 rally and the losi rally weapon, that alot of peolple would buy them. they are more fun than regular on road in my opinion.

The pirelli tires look great but are not too good in dirt or in asphalt.

Its just the looks, but they doo last longer.

I used them last year in a carpet race and they worked great and made my peugeot look great.

They do hook up on carpet very ice.

By the way, how high do you people think the RS4 rally can jump?

(It would be better if you can post some pictures)

the rs4 rally can jump reasonably high, as long as you can land it well. if it lands on all fours then it will survive a fairly high jump. as for height specificaly, I'd say just short of how high you would willingly jump a stadium truck. with heavier shock oil, you could probably go higher, but nothing unreasonable (like a 10 foot drop).
