What do you guys think would make the best front wheel drive rally car. I was thinking about making a Escort GT into one.

Are you talking "best" in terms of performance or in terms of performance for the money? If its the second - I agree with you about the Escort. If its the first - then the S4 would be my choice (not like I am buying one soon
). Anyhow, if you want to rally, get some sponsors to pay for the car.

Dump the Escort, the North American version is crap (the Escort rally car that competed in Europe was a highly modifed Cosworth Model. It shared about 6 parts with the street car [grill, ford emblems, tail-lamps, etc]).

If you are talking bang for the buck FWD, your best choices are:

1) Talon/Eclipse 2.0
2) Celica
3) Golf GTi (Prior Generation)
4) B13 SE-R
5) Mazda GTX (See the SCC site, they have one as a project car)


All of the above have abundant rally parts available.

I wish I could get sponsers to buy me a car. I have never rallied before exept for in games and in my sentra. Not a real rally though. I wonder how I would do. What about an old 200sx rear wheel drive.

I missread your question, if its a front wheel drive you are asking about then I remove the Audi recomendation.
Do you think any subcompact will do well? I mean a Civic just as well as a Mitsu Colt? A B13 is a good chassis and can be had for not much. The common recomendation I come across is that two door sedans are generally better then hatchbacks because of the chassis rigidity.
