For this build the kit must be a new kit, show all parts still on their plastic trees, they can be clean, dirty, ready to start a stage, in a service area, doing a night satge with working lights, BUT most of must be a rally car drift cars NOT allowed that is any Skyline or other car used for drifting car and provened to be either a dirt car or a bitumen rally car by that I mean it should have an interior shot showing navigatoin equipment ei; tripmeters map lights etc. other than that it is almost game on and yes marathon or Dakar type vehicles allowed including trucks. If there is not a good responce to this thread it will not go ahead.

what era is acceptable? any? does the vehicle have to actually portray an actual competitor? would the Carrera PanAmerica Road Race qualify as acceptable vehicle type?

62rebal, as long as it relates to rallying it can be any car, any period, actual or fictious it doesn't matter as long as it's not got anything to do with drifting as that is not rallying even though some people think it is connected because of the drift side. When U think about it 62rebel the drift that those guys do started out in rallying as it is commonly known as the Scandinavian flick where the driver gives the car a little flick to the right or left befor going the other way it's thefastest way round a corner when doing 80mp/h+ or 100kp/h+ also it's almost the safest way, I say that because the last time I did that trick with my rally car ( a Renault12 at the time) I ended up crashing into a tree going backwards at 60kp/h. Anyway back to the thread yes even the PanAmerica can go in as it's not really a raod race but a rally they use navigator gear in that.

This is an Edsel I built in 2010 to represent the PanAmerican rally from the early days so U see that one can be part of it.

I hope to see you on board and hope it encourages others to take part it would be great to see more than I got with the other forum.

Dingo I have 2 kits I would like to enter if you will accept. One is the Toyota corolla rally car the other is the 01 wrc focus. The body of the focus is in primer everything else is on the trees. The Toyota I got from my local club with the body painted white and half the decals on but again everything else on trees. Let me know If either will work. Thanks.

mr.camaro, both cars R acceptable all it has to be is a rally car my friend and as long as most of the parts R still on the tree (and please show that) that's OK.

Just one question: I've participated in several low-key Time-Speed-Distance and "Scavenger Hunt" rallys in conjunction with local and national Corvair clubs I belong to. I did these in ordinary, mainly stock Chevrolet Corvairs, with the aid of nothing more than a navigator (in one case my then 11 year old daughter - we finished in the top 1/4 of the field and it was her first time navigating in any rally!) with a stopwatch and a clipboard. Would a replica of one of the cars I drove in one of these be eligible? I realize that you're aiming this at primarily Pro Rally-type cars, but this kind of grassroots rally has a following too. If you don't consider this type of thing in keeping with your theme, no problem. Just thought I'd ask.

Jim, I don't mind grassroots level cars as long as it doesn't look like a drift car I'm trying to stay away from these things as they sneak into too many builds these days as that is all some people think R around. By the way congrats on the top 1/4 of the field placing and say congrats to your daughter for me for doing such a great job as Navi, looks like U have a top flight navigator/CoDriver Jim.

Since I'm building one anyways, I will enter a Tamiya Renault Turbo 5.

For what it's worth I literally just started it and was only able to get the engine glued together with a little paint. I know you want brand new models, but I hope you allow it in this build-off

Well, since I've been meaning to replicate my beloved (former) 1966 Corvair Monza coupe in scale anyhow, and my wife and I ran several TSD Rallies and EconoRuns with it over the 7 years we owned it. The car was pretty well modified mechanically, putting over 220 h.p. to the wheels from a 164 c.i.d. engine with a .040 overbore, bigger valves and 4 bigger single-barrel carbs, a hotter cam and low-restriction intake and exhaust. The suspension was lowered about 1" all around and had adjustable gas shocks and poly bushings. It was a real screamer that surprised many an unsuspecting 5.0 Mustang in a straight line and more than a few BMW's in the twisties...

I'll get going on it as soon as I have a couple of models on my work table out of the way. I'll scratch up a clipboard and handheld stopwatch to go in it, along with the number placard that the car wore in all of the moving events at the 2003 Corvair Society of America National Convention. We ran mid-pack in the rally, 2nd in class in the EconoRun, I ran 3rd in my class in the Autocross and my wife was 5th in hers.) Can anyone recommend a good source for something that comes close to 1966 Chevy "Lemonwood Yellow" in a rattle can?

It looked nothing like a drift car. It actually looked basically stock if you overlooked the slightly wider-than-stock tires and the almost unnoticibly lower ride height. Since Corvairs ride pretty low already, an additional 1" drop didn't raise too many eyebrows.

Patrik, if U want to run a street car as a rally car by all means many club rally cars started out this way before being taken off the road and built into full fledge comp cars, my Toyota Corolla started its life like that as a street car and when I became serious I added a rear half roll bar to start with and when I got the money from sponsors which I picked up I my second year I made it into a full cage BUT I still drove the car every day as a street runner actually Patrik that's how I met my now wife and she eventually became my driver and I switched to the Navi/Co-Drivers seat. We loved every minute of it so sure if U want to build a rally car model out of a street car kit go ahead just remember it must look something like a rally car.

To all others wishing to join this thread just remember it must look like a rally car "NO DRIFT CARS ALLOWED" it can be a club car, a state comp car, a national car, a WRC car, or even a Marathon or Trans-America rally car as long as it is a rally car of some sort and this does include tarmac rallies as well. Hope this clear things up a bit for allU budding raly car builders.

No roll cage, no roll bar, no roll anything! The only aftermarket safety device in this inherently safe car (an intentional jab at ol' Ralph Nader!) were a set of shoulder harnesses and my good sense in knowing my own abilities and not getting in over my head. The car was capable of a lot more than I was! I will be ading the aftermarket gauges the 1:1 car had - a tach in the instrument panel's clock hole and a pod of three gauges (oil pressure, head temp, and voltmeter) suspended under the center of the dash.

Jim, Ralph Nader aside as he thinks no car is safe (we have a guy in Australia like that) the Corviar was a great car if U didn't want to turn a corner in a hurry I believe had a slight problem there BUT even the Cobra was like that great at speed in a straight line, everything else was a chore. Good car though and a great shape Chev had it right there.

It will be a full fletch Historic rally Karmann giha buildt out of teh Tamyia Karman giha. Or at least somethin as close as possible to what could run in a classic rally event these days.
