I haven't done Rallye but what I've heard about it, they get a weee bit off-roady with them...thus the studded tires you see in that photo. My understanding is that with the Rallye scenario, they use a single speed trans. Our group is either 'on-road' (asphalt) or the normal 'off-road' dirt with big whooopteeeedoooooos.

Someone else commented on the 'rallye' or 'off-road' motors having the longer stroke in the .21 which filled in a blank for me. I tried a log-stroke .21 this last year in my GT8 and couldn't quite get the 'feel' I wanted.

here is a picture of a gt8 style ofna car (dtm1) and the Crono Rally Game

they both have flat chassis, the gt8 has very low ground clearance and the crono has "off road" buggy type suspension.

also the dtm1 has a 2 speed, and the crono only 1 speed. the crono has a short "buggy" chassis and the dtm1 longer "truggy" chassis.

You can run the "rally" game cars on unprepaired tracks consisting of grass/dirt/gravel/asphalt basically toss some cones down and start racing.

I am converting one of my JQ buggy's to rally game using the buggy body as a "underbody" to keep the crud out. ill post pictures in a while...i have been using the ofna as a rally car with limited sucess.

I wonder if an SC8 would make a decent rally game car.. I love running mine on an onroad track - much moreso than on an offroad track actually..
