    I had a Safety Devices cage that I got from Stable Energies in my first car, and it was a great cage. It look 3 different rolls before I finally did it in, and that was only because we hit a huge...

    As Matt points out, the federal regulations only apply to the manufacture and sale of a vehicle (being interstate commerce and all...), so it's really up to the state that you are in as to what's...

    I wouldn't worry too much about a series. Other than some fairly simple (but important) differences in car prep rules between sanctioning bodies that with a little planning can all be met with one...

    Sounds great! But, you need to tell Victor that you aren't the one that he needs to be telling to get into a rally car!

    Group 2 or its equivalents (i.e. normally aspirated, 2WD, <3L or so of displacement) is going to be the cheapest to participate in, and it generally doesn't take much to be competitive, because most...

    I can't stress enough that you should start with your budget first. $10k is a reasonable amount for a reliable (but probably not fast) car, so you can aim for an $8k budget, but don't start until...

    Being the owner of two rally Foci, the first of which I built in 2002, I recommend that you think carefully about whether you really want to use that Focus. I happen to be relatively tall, and have...

    Since I don't own a Subaru, I can't give you much in the way of specifics, but Prescott isn't exactly the desert, there are actually (small) pine trees, as well as animals like pronghorn, deer, and...

    As far as I am concerned, if my engine is back together, I'll be at 100AW and, if there are still openings on the entry list and the car makes it through 100AW, Sandblast. After that, I probably...

    To the OP, if you carefully read the P-stock rules, you will find that a car that is prepared to the limit of those rules is going to be better prepared than your **average** Group 2 or CRS-2 car. ...

    Every rally event that I know of pays EMTs, since they are critical to running the event, and you can't train somebody to do it in 15 minutes. That said, in recent years, the trend seems to be to...

    Dave,

    Since I don't deal with them on a regular basis, I won't claim any expertise, but my understanding is that DOT regulations apply to the manufacturing and sale of vehicles (interstate...

    Gene, I don't think it's odd at all. The first thing 50% of people ask when they find out I have a rally car is where the "tracks" are that I drive at. I haven't played any of the newer Gran...

    If a car is no longer eligible to compete, it doesn't matter what the cage is, you can't drive it in an event. The FIA uses homologation to thin the herd, so to speak. I do agree that no...

    Except that most of those cars have been out of homologation for so long that they are no longer eligible for FIA competition anyway. If somebody was building Seat Ibiza into a rally car for just...

    Depending on how tall you are, as well as how you feel about parents in your neighborhood profiling you as a child molester, you might look into getting a van. In my opinion, it's a much better...
