    Default Need help starting up

    Hey guys I put this on NASIOC but all I got was a bunch of crap. I need to find a good cheap 2.5rs to turn into a rallyX car. I want to make my living driving so this is the first step for me. I can build engines and fab parts so that is not a problem for me. Any car I find preferably needs to be close to Fl, but I'd be willing to ship it if I had to. Any help is greatly appreciated so thanks in advance!

    What kind of rallycross? Like SCCA Rallycross or GRC Rallycross?

    If you want to make your living driving, why are you even thinking about a rally or rallyx car?

    I want to start there. I wanna do stunt driving too and maybe some truck racing but I feel like rallyX is a good place to start.

    Do you have about $250,000 to spend on a season of GRC?

    That's why I want to start with SCCA rallyX, show people that I can win, get a sponsorship to get into a SuperCar Lite, and from there get into a SuperCar. It definitely helps that the SCCA is sanctioning the GRC this year tho.

    I'm not aware of anyone using Rallycross as a feeder to anything other than maybe stage rally.

    You might check out road racing, especially being in Florida. You'll have better opportunities to learn about sponsorship and the business end of the sport. It simply doesn't exist in SCCA rallycross.

    No, it doesn't...

    Just being real with you. No one is going to pay you to run SuperCar Lite unless you prove you can win on your own dime or you are already famous for other reasons.

    I can prove that I can win. That's why I'm looking for a car.
