Definately upgrade to universals in the front, dogbones can bind if ya turn it sharp enough, if you can, go ahead and get MIP CVD's for the front. the rear, dosnt really need them since they dont turn, but if you put universals or CVD's in it will eliminate most of the play (very general statement).

of course, if the car is 2wd you dont need anything in the front, but if 4wd, the above applies.

The tc3 rally kit was good, but the tc3 does not get along very well with dirt. It performed very good but little rocks samaged the steering. Better handling than the tamiyas though.

TB01 Universals are a direct fit I run them on mine (short arm version)

Servo saver, anything is better than the kit version, the HBX kit may have been improved, do not bother with the quick release battery, the packs have a tendency to pass the clips and fall out.

Just had a look at the HPI Rally looks nice, but a belt drive on offroad?

And the spur seems in a very open place.

Isn't that asking for trouble?

Thumbs up TT-01 Rally!

Bro, i've flipped and bashed my TT01 rally lots of times. recently i've filmed a bash where it flipped and did many 360s. will count and let you know how many times it crashed but still came out strong. will post the video too. :

and with TRF shocks, it does not bottom out. got good ride height too!

here's where i post. http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=114013

Tried it, the TL-01 looked tougher!

Nice, just started on my TL01 Rally project.

Have put in full bearings, TRF Shocks, Alloy Hex Hubs, Tamiya Rims with Speedmind Rally tyres and Inserts, Team Orion Stock motor, M Troniks Waterproof ESC, Futaba S3050 Servo and bunky AM radio for now (will chuck a Spektrum in there)

Evo 7 Shell

Will post pics when I have painted it all up!

Its funny that there should be a thread about this. I bought 2 HPI Rally kits a while ago. Built one which I eventually sold and I have another one new in the box ready to go. I'm just going to build this one up and use it for a bit of fun cause I love rally style racing. The belt drive on offroad isn't really much of a problem because the drivetrain is fully enclosed as there is a normal rally body shell, plus an internal body shell and undertray keeping it enclosed for the most part. Its an awesome looking car when its all built up so I'm looking forward to doing it again. :-)
