exactley only problem with rally is it doesn't run too well on grass tracks. just brilliant, because england has REAL offroad tracks, with grass and mud, none of this sissy hard packed clay.

to help make a rally car try using super ten tyres and rims,this will give you more ground clearance bul lower the final drive ratio to campensate for the larger wheels and higher load on the motor(go up by about 4-8 teeth on the pinion) these wheels use a standard hex )

you mean down 8-10 teeth on the pinion? the bigger the pinion the higher the gear ratio.

nope he got it right only prob is your acceleration might take a hit due to the extra drag and less torque

you want to lower the number of teeth on the pinion for offroad, so you can get more acceleration and torque but less top speed.
