Thanks !!!

The cars are incredible to drive .. weirdly they feel just like you would imagine a full sized RX car would feel .. tonnes of power and drive nice n loose ...

.... even "lairy" as one spectator commented last weekend !!

Don't know how many of you are on facebook but this 1/1 video looks sweet.

Cool deal!, always thought there should be Rallycross in the RC world. But you need a dedicated dirt section with a table top jump.

Run as close as possible to full sized, we even have a joker lap !! we run for 3 minute sprint races and the racing is super close and the most exciting to race a lot of fun for spectators too ..

Its now proving so popular we're up to around 30 drivers all in the space of a few months !!

Watch the vids and let me know what you think ..

I not only like the cars but also the music of the first vid. Can you say where the music is taken from?

Thanks

This is awesome! I love the idea of using a larger scale chassis, like the ones you've mentioned. They have more durability and can handle much rougher conditions. Here on the other side of the pond, it looks like we'd be using short course truck chassis with rally bodies.

Does anyone over there run associated, losi or traxxas? 3s and 4s would be a departure from the 1/10 scale cars like xv-01s. But the flip side of going larger scale is that you get that center differential! Thanks for sharing.

I think the 8th size is the key, I've run 10th scale rally before and its just not the same ... with the weight and size of 8th you can get them side ways and hold it ... its just epic

and as they're based on super tough 8th buggies with big bodies and foam bumpers the racing is ALL action !! ... nothing ever breaks ..

There's a good mix of chassis types used, mines a Xray xb8 .. championship leader runs a RB one .. there's also Losi, Associated, Hyper GT, Team C ... they all competitive .. just lower them and put on the stiffest springs you can find and wind up the anti-roll bars and your good to go !!! ... and don't forget to lock the centre diff ...

We have a Facebook page if anyone wants to take a look .. you need to ask to join but all are welcome

The song is a piano rendition/cover from artist Tears for Fears, song is Mad World.

There are a few covers on you tube. I do not know who was used for the video.
