Here are some new Nitro Rally pics I wanted to share from earlier today....

FREAKIN' FUN I TELL YA!!!!!!!!!


By just adding the longer rally shocks and a little modification on the front "c" hubs, anyone with an unused nitro sedan can build one....

Anyone with an HPI shaft driven sedan chassis can contact me and I'll show you how to hook it up....:pimp:

Thought so! lol

All these threads and expectations about rally almost make me want to transform my old Mugen MSX into a rally car...

But it's been discontinued since last year so parts are extremely hard to get. That alone keeps me away from using it. I have an old O.S. motor that I can use, but then, most of my extra servos are blown, plus I need another receiver. It's looking to be too much expense for me.








Maybe I can borrow my cousin's unused basic servos, transmitter/receiver, and hope nothing breaks.... :p sounds like a fun project for spring break while getting even more broke...














I did NOT just say that I swearImage

Prime, that's one of the cool things about rally....breakage is very minimal because everyone is racing the clock intead of each other....you have to drive smart and stay out the way of danGeR to do well.....:)

I've only broken ONE belt in over 5 years of racing my electric rally!

Basic electronics is all that is needed too! No high tech stuff needed!!!!!

Start building your mugen.....you'll be glad you did......:beer:

Just a note to say that I have found an inexpensive way for HPI drivers to make rally length shocks....

I found out that HPI has also discontinued the rally shocks, so we have to improvise....LOL

I took the regular onroad shocks and used Associated shock shafts (part # 6461) to get them to length needed! You'll also need Associated "C" clips too.

Everything will fit a little snug, but it'll work and should seat nicely after a few runs.....:)

You also need some slightly longer springs unless you use a ton of spacers with the stock springs.....

I'm also assuming that the Associated drivers (and other manufacturers) can use this setup in their onroad shocks too, so try it and let me know....

The shafts were like $3 each, but much less than buying a new set of shocks....

:beer:

It may give you the length but where you getting the rebound travel? You'll be beating the shock shaft into the top of the shock cap. :shoot:

Remember, we won't have the terrain of an "offroad" track, so we won't need as much travel in the shocks.

I just compressed mine to the maximum and looks to be more than we will need......

If worst comes to worst, a nylon spacer or fuel line tubing on the shock shaft before you put on the spring, will keep the shaft from hitting the shock cap....

I'll let you know how it works the next time I test so you can try it on your rally.... :shock:

BTW, do you have those associated shock shafts in stock????

I just put slightly longer shocks on mine and got the height I needed. I have an inch of clearance in the rear and 3/4 inch in the front. I had to modify the front "C" hubs a little, but no big deal....:)

If you can get it near there, you'll be good!

Preferably, I'd rather see the standard size for scale realism....

If you already have them (36mm), I'd like to see them run and what they look like anyway....

Post some pics when you can...... :beer:
