Rally Legends? Scale, off-road and saving on-road?

More articles by »
Written by: Derek Buono

On-road racing is in a “break-up” phase with the world. There are pockets of racing around the country, but the reality is it became too complicated and expensive for the average wheel to absorb. Rally Racing isn’t new. One can say Tamiya had every possible class on the market years before anybody thought it would make it. Rally Legend RC thinks they have something on-road racers will like, scale racers will love and off-road racers may “turn their heads” like when you say “cookie” to a dog.

I hate to say that Short Course has helped us get over off-road cars having wheels inside the fenders and gets the inside of the body dirty…whaaah! So combine scale retro looks, a 4WD on-road chassis and through in some scale bumps and terrain and maybe, just maybe we might see some fun touring car racing again? We hope to get some samples and see if we can find the magic combination with these kits.
