I was wondering if anyone on the boards rally their sentra. I am begining a slow build up of my sentra for rally duties and was wondering if you have any spare parts for sale like custom peices (skid plates, tank guard, ect.)
Also any advice on performance springs that dont lower the car at all.
Thanks

Trickstr,

You might want to try to hook up with some of the Impreza 2.5RS guys up here in New England. Some of them rally race and they may be of some help.

I have been to one Rally-Cross and I know Wes has Rallied. I'll tell you one thing. When you get out there you realize really fast how important clearance is and braking/accelerating. Lots of fun though, I highly recommend it.
For anybody interested, you can look up SCCA's website and go to your "region" there you will find events. Call the numbers and sign up.

Rallying is expensive. If you want to hook up your car for rallying and be able to maintain it. Your talking brakes and suspension upgrades for sure. Not to mention tires if your serious and you must expect some damage to the body from rocks or hitting something. I saw guys out there in brand spankin new Subaru RSs getting their paint jobs torn UP!

Bubs, you sure Wes has "rallied" his 200SX? Or am I confusing auto-x and rallying? Auto-x is pavement/cone racing. Rallying is off-road mud/rocks/dirt etc. Is this correct? It was my understanding that Wes auto-xed in his car, not rallied. Just clarifying for myself and others...

You are also leaving out all the chassis reinforcement that is necessary to keep your car intact if you rally more than once a season--reinforcing all the welds on the chassis, adding structural support by welding in metal tubes, a welded in roll-cage...that stuff alone is probably 2G's or more...

SCCA has a section called "Rally-Cross" where they pick a location and set out cones. Usually it's gravel, but some times they choose a big grass field. I always thought a "Rally" was any gathering of cars going around a set course. Like "La Carrera Pan-America Rally" is through Mexico on the highways. This SCCA thing seems to be a hybrid of Rallying and Auto X. Either way braking, tires, and suspension are a must if you want to compete more than once.

Rallying doesn't have to be expensive. Check SCC Rally Beater Project in the the March 2001 issue.
