Actually any touring car that has a sealed front and rear diff case can be converted to rally just buy the old BJ4 (non worlds) top and bottom body. These items can seal all your drivetrain and electronics, off course the modifying is up to you. Just color these with black and top it off with a rally body.

Here's something for everybody. My retro Tamiya TAO2. Even the Novak sticker is retro! I used to race this chassis in our club.

cool! i guess that counts as onroad. i decided not to buy the batteries and instead im going to buy a gallon of nitro (mmmmm nitro)... so rally is out for me for a while as i put the electronics back in my firestorm.

sorry if i make any mistakes typing, i'm hungry and a bit lethargic...

hey guys, I was looking for some rally tires.

http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/produc...ducts_id=15548

Would those work? Also does the 6.7cm diameter measure outside diameter, or inside?

WOW

That is an amazing track, and your driving is superb as well. I like how you almost flip over, but the car rights itself. Yay for Low COG!

I forgot if you use a TT-01, and you're in the Philippines, right?
