So are each driver timed for attacking each stage just like in a real rally? That's got to be tiring running up on some of the steep hills. The scale realism is cool though.

Don't just imagine this Greg, this is just wild enough to try it!!!! Gotta love that suspension bridge.....

TO ALL....We here in New Jersey had a hefty rally program here about 5 years ago, and I'm sure many still have them collecting dust.

Mine is in a box in the back of my closet still caked with 5 year old mud....LOL

I'm gonna rally our troops (no pun intended) and try this just for the fun of it....

I started a new thread on our site to see how many rally guys that will want to try it....

Greg knows how it works around here.

Great concept, but sounds like a heart attack to me. I wouldn't make it the first minute.

seems cool but i dont like chasing it...what they shoudl do is mount a camera right under the body so you can stand in one spot and it transmits the video, and at the same time you hvae a friend reading off the turns ahead, now THAT would be realism. though the cameras would be expensive...

This class of racing is some great comedy, watching skuba demonstrate it outside mcdonalds in vegas last week with no car was hilarious, had me in stitches.

Go Steve!

Well Steve, you were right. I haven't laughed like that in forever. Those baby steps running behind the car are just awesome.

Two words for you guys...

Mod Class!!!

Cars look cool. Those guys are driving pretty well considering they're shuffling down the path behind their own cars. My wife might actually like me doing this...says I don't get enough exercise racing r/c cars...

The whole scale stage thing is really cool and the tracks are amazing. Although here in the States some guys might be better off with flat escalators like in the airports to go alongside the track.

Too cool!! Now I would call this form of rc racing a sport since there is actual physical effort involved.
