Default Touring/Rally car

Hi expert buddies,

I am vic here. I wish to buy a touring/rally car. My budget is USD200.00 for kit come with motor and ESC. ( cos I have spent too much on nitro).

Do you have any recommendations ?

Thank you.

I too wanted to build a rally car,but I was wondering if the FWD for the mini will be good for running in dirt?

the tt01 can easily be converted easily into a rally car. visit some of the rally threads linked below. in fact, any TC with a sealed drive train cen be converted. just look at it and fiddle around with ride height and tyres. i think the norm for rally is either some kind of schumacher mini pin or hpi rally tyres.



HPI E-Firestorm - Tamiya TA05 racer (carbon chassis, 10.5 brushless etc) - LRP Blast S10 BX - Revo 2.5r truggy conversion (in progress)

Losi XXX-S seems to me like it would be a good platform since losi made a 4wd buggy using the same design. It seems to me that the XXX-4 is basically the same chassis with different arms and shock towers. Though I'm sure there are other differences. In any case, I'm sure that you could find a good XXX-S withen your price range.
