Dude, as a potential grass-o-cross car this is fine as is..Of course ANYTHING is fine for grass-o-cross..We have found it to be very tight inside and both Gawboy and I have girlish figures. Mostly the height. You need to fit the cage *very rightly* to the roof otherwise you'll struggle.
As much knowledge as their is regarding the BG platform, the parts sure have run out. It seems like we're always 5-10 years late to get an aftermarket part that we want/need.
I'm actually running it as a stage car. So, I can speak from experience on a few things (despite being noobish):Dude, as a potential grass-o-cross car this is fine as is..Of course ANYTHING is fine for grass-o-cross..
As a potential one day maybe stage rally car you're creating problems for yourself from the get go: cramped room and lousing availability of wear items like hoods and fenders and doors and glass..Thoese wear out a lot for noobs....
There IS howeber one ray of sunshine and thats there there is a model Maz-dog with a pretty OK---not "good" but OK ---set of ratios:
MT GS AT GS
1st 3.42 2.80 3.31 2.80
2nd 1.84 1.54 1.83 1.54
3rd 1.29 1.00 1.31 1.00
4th 0.92 0.70 1.03 0.70
5th 0.73 - 0.80 -
Final Drive 4.11 3.83 4.39
But can you find 'em??
So have fun with this but think hard about it as a real stage rally car....
