My XXX-R

I know, the XXX-R has never really existed. ;)

But here is what my XXX-S converted to rally looked in its first version:

Now, I'm working on it to improve... even if I never really tried it outside.

I installed 6mm offset wheel to have something near 200mm:

In back ground, you can see the futur body: an EVO VI 200mm from HPI.

View of the height ride:

Chassis: XXX-S
Shocks: Traxxas
Wheels: HPI TE37 6mm offset
Tire: Tamiya Rally block tire
Clutch: Team Losi XXX-4

what traxxas shocks did you use? Pede's?

In front:4-TEC with spring who come with
In rear: Medium lenght big bore. Part number 2659... if you can find them.
With HPI rally spring (black)

I had these shocks (rear ones) "in stock" for many year and finally find a use for them

They are front Traxxas TCP buggy shocks.

Very for the suspension setup info guys...thanks.
This body looks super on there, just playing sega rally and was using the Evo, similar scheme.
These would look even better with some action shots, dust and dirt flying.

Moving these threads to our newest section...

The Traxxas TCP buggy shocks show the same part number as the 4 Tech...2658.
My question (and I've looked allready, can't find) is what is the length of the shock from Eye to Eye?
I've got a set of 70mm shocks here and I think they're close to being the right size to work.
Could you please measure for me?
Thx,
Kev

EDIT: I was right, I writted 2659 above. :smoke:

And you're right, 4-tech shocks part number is 2658.

I think your 70mm shocks can work, maybe with a small spacer inside.

I mesured 65mm eye to eye at rear and 56 mm at front.

Your car looks great Joel. Where do you run it? I just found this rally section today. We have a rally section on our forum too, one10drift. We also started a new forum, but it's pretty quiet(one10offroad). I think the rally guys are too spread out web-wise.

How many guys are local? (Fraser valley/greater vancouver area)

Thanks for good comments.

For the moment, I ran it 2-3 times at our track, on carpet.

I will try to run it outside next summer.

What country do you live in? I'm assuming you're not near the greater Vancouver regional area.

Right, I guess you won't be attending any rally meets here any time soon. How many have rally rc in your area? I know about 10 around here I think. That's spread accross 100km.
