Not sure if this has been posted before, but from now on when I hear "rally truck", I'm going to think of this:





Those are being driven harder than many rally cars I've seen.

No shit, man. I've watch a fair amount of that going back some years and its no other words than whacked.. and glad you said it cause if i did i would get shit but its exactly what I thought, too...
is it the water?
Wodka at birth?
What?
I have no idea..

(ya know I just thought of something...actually these guys are doing exactly what I wouuld expect somebody going thru the effort to build and enter a vehicle would be doing.. In udder woids I don't understand the lack of real charging which seems to be the acceptable norm here.)

Speaking of loonies. Whatchoo been up to Tom? have you sold the ol Golf? too much work or 15 kids?

Rally trucks will save rally...

Sequential "car" numbers, 81, 82, 83... 123, 124...

That's a few more entrants then most N.A. events winking smiley

I'm assuming (perhaps wrong) they are part of a larger rally.

only 3 kids for me, 15?! Yikes! no thanks!

Still have the car, hasn't moved from it's spot in the garage since '08.

Aside from that, I've been dirt biking with a KTM 500 EXC. Plated dirt bikes are pure fun! Some great riding around here, coincidently in the same areas that rallies are usually held, good times. Kicking around the idea of getting a smaller 2T (KTM 200 maybe) and doing some hare scrambles and XC races next year. Nothing ultra competitive, just for fun, still have to work on Monday...

looks like great rwd rally fun

i still kick the idea of rally truck around, use the same four link Jon recommends on the 240s and go from there



I would rather drive a slow car fast as a fast car slow!
