Are there typically any jumps? I’d like to do it but don’t want to catch air.

Jumps are prohibited and the course is typically very technical with hairpin turns and such. It is more about car control on loose surfaces.

100% interested.

Also how did you fit the 15's? did you have to modify the tie rod location or do those fit without the need to do so?

Wheels are 16" so they have no problems clearing the brakes. They are rally inspired wheels, not real rally wheels like Methods

First off, good on ya! Used to do Rallyx back in college and really miss it. Did quite a few events in Antioch, Santa Rosa, Prairie City and even T-hill. I was hell bent on doing it with the BRZ when I had it but I only ended up doing track days due to the much higher seat time-to-time investment ratio (with kids, free time is at a premium).


I've been strongly considering doing it again on my RS, but definitely need to invest in some smaller wheels/tires (I'm sure it won't take much to debead my 19's with skinny 35 series tires) and a skid plate (knowing how rutted PC gets after a few runs).

I have 16" wheels as well, but having trouble deciding on what tires to use for rally/rallycross. There are some 16" retreads but on standard tires so the side walls are meh.

I see winterforce, and toyo's winter tire in a 225/50r16 are both affordable, not sure how they do in dirt.

Rally.build also sells 225/45r17 retreads, and I have my stocks. So considering those as well.

I work sunday, so trying to see if someone will cover me.

I used to run Blizzaks, but any snow/winter tire within your budget should work well. You are really just looking for something that has slightly more knobby thread pattern to grip the loose dirt (full A/T tires seem too aggressive from what I remember)


Also make sure to bump up your tire pressures (I used to run around 45 psi) to keep that sidewall from rolling over and debeading.

General Ultimax Artic is a good choice if you can get it in your size. Stupid cheap and good grip in dirt/mud.

Altimax arctics are really popular, and I am running those in 205/55r16. Most people in stock class just buy the cheapest, knobby winter tires they can find and fill up to at least 40psi.
