    I have not received mine yet, getting it as a roller. Still deciding if I am going to run it as a rally or convert it to a slash.

    Best to all you great Rally owners

    Monday I received my TBR Fr/ Rr bumpers. Nope to get them installed. Tomorrow expecting the taller battery hold down. Then hoping for some RC time this weekend. Fingers are crossed.

    Charging batteries as we speak. Looks like it might be decent for once outside, somewhat sunny and no sign of rain yet, grounds still soaked but that's ok. I am itching to bash it's been to long. Going to run a few packs through the Rally.

    Chassis will be late december from what I see/read everywhere. That's pretty much all I need now, ordered lots of parts to convert my Sl4sh PE to a LCG Rally, soon I'll have 2 Rally's .

    Well, just got back. Put 3 packs through it. What a blast man!!! Took some videos I will upload some later. Charging up another 3 packs to head back out, this time I am bringing the Launch Ramp and will do some jumps hehe!! Ill post vids! Might not have time as I have to go the boys Xmas concert at 6:00pm but I'll go after if that's the case.

    By the way, first time running with the Outerwears shroud. Extremely pleased, ran in the same area I usually do. My chassis would usually be filled with stuff, it's pretty clean in there. No need to take it all apart and clean it. Sure the fit is %100 on but works more than good enough for me. Kept out %95 of the stuff easy.

    Good to hear. I've had the same luck as you to. While not 100% fit, it does doe a good job considering its made for another chassis. A few mods to it and that might make it even better. Glad someone was able to have a blast today.

    They look nicer in person than in pics. I was debating on keeping it as a rally or converting it to a slash, but after seeing it, I am going to keep it as a rally. Now just trying to decide to use sct wheels/tires or convert to 17mm and use buggy wheels/tires. Suggestions?

    I installed the "tall battery hold down" & TBR Fr bumper. Oh and I also charged a couple 3S packs for the Rally and 2S for the little guys MERV. Plans are to burn up those packs when I get home from work. woohoo I'll take some snaps too.

    There is a little room to spare with the 3S pack i'm using. I can take height dimensions for you if you like. I'm guessing you have a 4S pack that could be used?

    This is true. The Rally really is a fantastic design.

    I've been ignoring mine for a few weeks, maybe I'll bust it out Monday if the streets are dry.
    My Black & Blue Rally is faster than your color...

    I measured it at 42mm tall with the 29mm battery hold down in the tall battery kit. You would have to mod the quick release posts to make it fit. We are talking a minimum off 3-4mm to make it happen. Maybe straps to hold it down.

    You know the 2200's sweet spot is 4s. At least on the ERBE & EMBE. Can only imagine on this car. LOL

    Hope this helps ya.

    Ran the Rally again today. This is the 3rd pack through the new Traxxas CVDs. I ran it pretty hard on road with the ET-2400 motor. Keeping everyone updated with how they are performing. Cleaned the car after the run and inspected everything all good to go at the moment. I'll keep yall posted.

    I bought a used roller off of here in Blue. I think it's getting a Novak HV 7.5 550 motor and an HPI Qbase esc (hpi mamba max pro).

    Looking forward to getting it.
