    I have an idea, buy a "no wheel drive" car... or otherwise known as jogging. You'd be better off than reading though all this jargon.

    I can say... that the reason people quit after 1, 2, or 3 rallys has nothing to do with the type of car they started off with unless it was a budget crusher. I'm pretty sure I started off with an easy slow car and never once thought man this boring, i'm waay to awesome for this car i'm just going to hang it up.

    Most people quit because they realize the finanical and time investment required to keep pursuing the sport.

    czwalga nailed it, it's not because they don't want to continue, but the cost of trailering to events, both in terms of fuel cost and time, is a sport killer. Smaller more regional/localized events would keep people involved. Of course cost would need to be kept bare bones to allow entry of 12-14 cars to keep them viable, and they would need to be done in a manner that required fewer volunteers as well.

    Well crap that puts me into open 2 then because I have 13 pins and 2 plates in my right hip from a nasty high-side during a rain motorcycle road-race. It definitely doesnt help me go faster, somedays it hurts like hell.
