Default Rally Car

Hello everyone. I have a just a few questions about my on-road car.
I have a HPI Sprint2Sport and I would like to make it more on the rally side.
I know the simple parts as tires/hard springs/lift the body.

My question is, are there any other parts or mods I need to make or should make to help me run around like a rally car?

Thanks guys.

Some type of lexan undertray would be a good idea, to keep sand and little pebbles out of the drivetrain.

I think you actually want softer springs for a rally car compared to on-road. You can raise the body a bit, but you also need to raise the chassis ride height to get the ground clearance.

Tamiya makes rally wheels and tires, you could also get a spring that was longer than the stock ones, I know the xray black set of springs are longer than hpi springs. This will get you a few mm of ground clearance. If the car has sway bars I'd remove them, then can limit travel.
