Been working on this one for a while now. This has taken quite some time & cash I might add. I have been slowly getting parts & waited to have them all before building it. I just finished & can't wait to go Race it. Hope to come to Leisure Hours & try these out before summers end.

Parts include :
MCD 535mm Chassis
MCD Alloy steering support
MCD Alloy servo tray
MCD Alloy Center Diff brace
MCD Alloy Rear chassis braces
MCD Steel inner trans gears
Chrome GP290 28.5 cc Engine
JetPro EVO3 design pipe
TGN X-can exhaust spacer

Outerwares Pre-filters

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.
