Thanks ! Well we finally got some time for me to go test this baby out. We had a great time. best of all it come home in one piece & no big damage. The only issue I had at all is both front inner fenders got some small scuffs from the wheels that come up & touched a small bit. We run our cars as designed & push them to the limits. They handle extremely well & run very good. They are capable of over 60m.p.h. & weigh near 30lbs. Luckily my wife come along & shot some video. Hope you enjoy watching them in action.

I thought rally cars were designed for more surfaces other than asphalt

I think that was more of a first running tweak session. Seeing that on a mild dirt course would be great!

They make 2 versions of Rally cars in the MCD line. There is a on-road version & what they call a gravel conversion. The on-road has a short travel suspension & the gravel has a medium travel.

Thought I would update with some pictures after sevral runs & a new video.
