    Isn't that how it always is??? Not fair. I just finally reached the financial independance to scoop up a Baja(which rocks by the way, no matter now little I drive it) and now I see Largescalerc.com. I went to the website to see something called the MCD Rally. Oh I want one of them, too! Haven't done the research yet, but I like the rally look and proportional body mounting. That thing would be awesome with a Colin McRae Suburu or maybe even a Stephan Peterhansel Mitsubishi Pajero. Yea. I'm a rally fan.

    I agree it does look nice. I still am getting a Baja over it though. I just heard so many good things about HPI customer service and there are really starting to be cool hop ups for it coming out all the time.

    Oh yea, I'm alll into the 4wd part, but the Baja has it's strengths. I wonder about that MCD though. Is the body stretched over the buggy body or is it a special chassis for the rally? I wonder how stable it is.

    I think the baja will out climb it. I have yet to find a hill steep enough for the baja. My wife says Im obsessed because I am always looking for new places to run when we go out.

    only 1 thing would suck more than having more cool stuff available than you could afford. that is having no cool stuff available. I set goals, if i see something i like i imediately start setting any spare cash aside till i have enough to buy what ever it is. The MCD vehicles are still crazy priced i don't see what on them is worth so much cash.
