Just curious if anyone who has had both on road and an off road RC vehicles could comment on the current selection of available RC 'Rally' vehicles out there today. I've never had one of these, and am interested in getting one but don't really know what to expect because I've only ever had a nitro on-road vehicleand even that was a good 7 years ago.
Maybe a few questions to get you thinking:
-Are they as versatile as they are advertised to be? Or are they really just on-road vehicles with extra ground clearance?
-Can they handle decently on dirt/gritty surfaces?
-Think of the poisitives and fun aspects of your on and off road vehicles. Is Rally a good mixture of those attributes?
-Do you think the rally vehicles on the market now have any significant shortcomings?
I'm interested in something around the 1/10th size. Perhaps a Tamiya DF03-RA, for instance. I like the idea of a realistic body like the Lancia Delta much more than the cartoonish type offered by Traxxas, too.
Please, chime in!
