    GT Rally Mod

    Greetings, I've had my GT for a few weeks and overall I've been impressed with the durability after it flipping end over end for 30ft and not a single broken part. But now onto why I bought it in the first place. I was wanting to turn it into a rally platform and with a little modification it turned into just that. The rear only required to removal of two small pieces of the chassis and longer shocks, while the front I had to take a dremel to allow the hub carrier to move further down. Now with adding a little larger tire and the suspension raised I achieved what I was after. With the large tire and stock suspension height the chassis was riding at 18mm and with the modified chassis and longer shocks the chassis is riding at 26mm.

    Here are the photos at stock ride height with taller tires.


    Here are the areas that need to be modified in order to increase the ride height.




    Here you see the increase ride height with the larger size tire and the factory shocks extended to 62mm using a new rod end.

    That's cool but why? If a taller ride height was wanted why not just get a Rally? Looks cool though. I like it.

    I went this route because I wanted to keep in the 190mm/200mm body size to keep in the overall width of SCX10 or similar width rigs.
