I was just wondering if anyone else has set up an old nitro street car for rally style racing. I have the old Kyosha Porsche 1/10 nitro and use to race it in parking lots, but I just bought a house with over 2.5 acres and I am thinking about making a rally style track for my car with some jumps and nice turns and stuff, all on hardpack dirt. Has anyone set up their car for this? What tires would you suggest? Anything else you would suggest? Track plans? Thanks.

Re: Rallying

i have never done this but i am an expert when it comes to hoppin up R/C's. first you may want to play around with gear ratios, some "street settings" are not tough enugh to handle the beating. new tires, you dont have to buy offroad tires but it will help when you do look for em, kyosho has rally cars im sure they will have tires. larger suspention, obvious if your gonna be hitting jumps, with street clearance you'll destroy the thing, you want about 1/2" to 1" of clearance and remember allthough huge jumps may be fun they can wreck your car in a heartbeat. motor should be fine. all your screws and hardware may need some support, there not made for bangin around and getting airborne. track sounds like, well i guess all i can say about that is, "man i wish i had one in my back yard!!!"
