For people looking for bodyshell options, I quite like the look of this one from Protoform named the PFRX :thumbsup:



Just out of interest. Is anyone considering using a short course truck for the rally cross class? Being the same dimensions, you can add a body shell and some 8th adapters for tyres!

11 of us with rally cross cars now :thumbsup:

Best finish building my car! Rallycross is on!

Here's a link to a "speed calculator"

I've used this to work out overall top speed, and initial gearing for my cars setup, I aimed for around 45mph and this seems to be about right for rallycross on Mendip short track ..

Our first round of Rallycross RX proved to be pretty popular straight off with 8 drivers turning out to run the 8th scale beasties !!!

The Hyper GT's looked good straight out of the box with most using the standard electrics listed above ...

The BSR's looked to run quite well and should go even better with a few tweeks .. some softer Hyper GT springs should work well as the std car is quite hard ...

Nearly everyone was running on the amazing GRP S4 compound cut slicks ... grip was great after a couple of laps on the tarmac .... but not quite so good on the grass :lol:

.. and here's a short vid of the days fun and frolics ... apologies for the dodgy editing !!!

Nearly 1000 views :woot:

Someone's interested !!!:thumbsup:

mrspeedy 31-05-2016 08:11 PM

We need to talk bodies seeing as there really seems to be a growing interest in this class.

Choice isn't great really, stock Hyper GT actually looks better painted up in some decent colours in the flesh ..


mrspeedy 31-05-2016 08:13 PM

Associated Pro Rally body .. although a little pricey does a very good job of looking like the VW Polo rally car ..


mrspeedy 31-05-2016 08:23 PM

Hobbytech DS3 would look amazing painted up in Solberg colours .. need to save up a bit first !!!


terry.sc 31-05-2016 11:28 PM

There are plenty of body options available from Delta Plastik

mrspeedy 01-06-2016 10:24 AM

:thumbsup: and not a bad price either, even shipped from Italy !!

The italians seems to have the majority of good body options ..

BYSM make some tidy bodyshells ..

Audi would paint up nice in Mattias Ekstrom Red Bull colours

Looks Good, will have to save some pennies and get one in the near future .... will stick to our 1/10th Rallying at the Mo ...

mrspeedy 03-06-2016 05:02 PM

Good to hear that :thumbsup:

They're not expensive to get up and running, plenty of 2nd hand stuff on ebay as usual, thats where mine came from !!
