Rally expedition!!!

Postby ccm » Tue Dec 26, 2006 12:05 am

I was just reading an old post about rally cross, and my inner race car demon seemed to be stirred by one person's suggestion: Raidersburg. It isn't too far away, and I have ridden my 250R for quite some distance on those roads, enjoying scary fast, tail-hanging-out slides. The main roads are fairly smooth, and I have yet to find the end; mechanical failure stepped in the way of that. Anyway, I would bet it would be a blast in a car (or truck) as well. This time of year may work well with the assumed absence of the motocross crowd. I'd hate to bounce a biker of my hood at 60! If anyone is interested, I think I'll go check it out either this week or during the weekend. If one were so inclined, they could even have informal time-trials. Hmm.......FWD vs. RWD vs. AWD? Ha ha, probably not much of a contest (stab, stab).

PS Russ, better think this one over while you still have the STi :twisted:

What, you don't think the Lotus would be a good rally car :wink: Ever watch footage of the ol Lancia Stratos in the 70's on gravel? they make Fornula D look like a little kid on a tricycle :)

Plus, the new car will still be AWD but have a lot more low end torque :twisted:

1995 Escort Cosworth - a little less of a headache
2013 Subaru STI - RPM Speedwagon
