Rally X

Anyone rally-x?
This was in Crystal, MI last weekend.
Tried different TC settings and tire pressures. These things need LSDs...



Camera phone video. I'm at 3.00 and 3.55

Clearly what you call Rally-X isn't what I know as Rallycross.......


Whatever it is it looks like fun though

Rallyx is autocross on dirt or snow.


Rally cross is an entirely different animal...and yes we have it here too

this looks like a lot of fun. what kind of tires are you running? thinking a set of blizzaks should do nicely on that surface

I know.

I have been following Rallycross since the early 1970's. It's not as good these days as it was back in the heyday of 1980's, but it's still my favourite motorsport.

Just Blizzacks.
No, what would be best is studded tires...

We have rally-x or SCCA Rallycross which is like an Auto-x on dirt, one car at a time.

We also have Rallycross. Wheel to wheel mayhem. Best left to sponsored teams with lots of spare parts!
