The Tamiya TT02 gives you the ability to built the car in "high" ride height configuration. I was able to get a good 12-14MM's ride height out of mine but there was some pretty bad bump steer at that height....I imagine you could shim some of that out though.

My TT02 has been super reliable running on a blinky 17.5T set-up with 20+ hour of run time under its belt. I have only broken one rear arm but that was complete driver error. Parts are easily available and there is plenty of aftermarket support.

You can find NIB kits for as low as $70 second hand in the classified sections. I put about $50 in hop up parts and I think the bang for the buck is great. They will also be fine for club racing if you ever want to venture into that.

The XV-01, in my opinion, is probably the best 1/10th scale rally car currently on the market. The sealed drivetrain, integrated radio box, and enclosed battery are great, and the car is pretty spot on in terms of handling. I've been running mine with the stock silver can for a couple of years (on 2S), and it's a blast. Very predictable handling on all surfaces - asphalt, concrete, dirt, bark dust...
I have a soft spot for the TA02 - it was my first touring car (Promarkt Mercedes), and was the first touring car to ever run at the local carpet track, and I just finished building the TA02SW I purchased a few weeks ago. I can't speak to the car's ability off road, but the chassis tub and exposed driveshaft would be a liability. Rally cars end up with a lot of debris piled up on the chassis.
The TT02, same issues in an even cheaper package. The DF03Ra works really well, but again, exposed shaft and electronics.

the XV01 is near the perfect rally platform. Its easily adaptable, and you can take it in any direction you like.
