I was wondering if anyone here did it? I'm thinking of getting another car specifically for this and was wondering if anyone could give me a quick overview about the entire series and the major things that can and can not be done to the car. Not really looking for specifics otherwise I would read all of the rule book, right now I'm just looking for a quickie

If you don't mind losing, buy something that is cheap and you can leave in the field when it breaks. If you do want to win buy something that is cheap and you can leave in a field. Then after a few events of seeing what other folks are running you can see where you want to go class-wise. Oh and depending on the site, power means nothing as you won't be able to put it down anyways.

ALso look on DirtyImpreza for more info too.

I will say that the modified classes are super hard. M4 is equivalent to SM in scca autox.

I would say that beginning in a stock class first would be great for your ego too!

Theres going to be tough competition in all classes, just because its a stock class doesn't mean its easier to win. It just means cheaper as far as parts go. Call it bias if you want but 93-01 imprezas and some legacys are cheapest easiest cars to find that are rallyx worthy. Also early 90's fwd coupes ie. sentras, civics with peppy engines are always a good choice.
Vut what it come down to is finding a car within your budget youre completely ok with beating up because it will happen.

I love it, and own/operate the Texas Rallysport series in Texas. Most fun you can have in a car. Depending on the site, you should not "expect" damage to a car if you drive within your limits and look ahead at the surface conditions (ie, don't drive into a hole or a rock!). I've rented cars like the Ford Fiesta, Mazda2, etc and had them back to the agency in just fine shape. Get out there and do it, it's a blast!

This picture sums it up, its the most fun that you can have in a car and you don't really have to put alot of money into it. Best advise I can give you is to got an event and participate, lean on the experienced guys for the basics (and they will be more than happy to help) and just have fun.
