That seems like some good fun.

Wish I could've turned off the music though...

Love it. I did something similar with the Maple Leaf Rally club when I had my AW|D Subaru. It was one of the most fun things ive ever done. I hope to get back to it again one day. Problem is, the rally track is ovr 3hrs away!!!

Here are some videos.

It's a highlight reel of the season, I actually like that it was put to music (a decent song too) and that you could still hear the cars. Overall it had good balance.

awesome

even though everything is almost new on my car, i would be scared to thrash it like that, thats just wild. I am assuming they are bnot all stock, anyone know what you would be able to modify to run in something like that?

This is most likely like Group 5 rally racing. In which case the cars pretty much stock mechanically. They have just had roll cages installed and a bit of suspension and fender work done for clearance when they get air. There's obviously a bunch of other minor tweaks done to the cars like skid plates and mesh in front of the rad to protect from stones, but those things aren't mandatory, just good practice.

Scott lent me a magazine with an article about these guys a while back but I can't find it. Maybe I gave it back, even though that's totally not my style.

Anyway this series seems great-- the rules are all designed to keep costs down and the focus on the driver/co-driver's skills, not vehicle development. The cars do have intake, exhaust, and chip-- but all cars have the same intake, exhaust, and chip. All cars have LSD. All cars on the same tires, etc. I don't remember for sure but I don't think there are any body mods... 318is's are tough as nails anyway.

The article went on to describe how there was some antipathy towards these guys from the big money rally teams since they are always having so much fun, and when conditions are good for a RWD car they have a habit of embarassing the big money/power/tech teams in segment times, too. Haha!

I envision the death of my 318 to be quite similar to that video. LOL
