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

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2721130600...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT



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!

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

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

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 ..

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