Rally
Anyone here rally there Benz? I know we have all seen kamel's picture of his airborne W123.
I would think there might be more intrest of that kind of event within this community...or should i say following?

I checked the SCCA website and im out of luck because they have no events in California for 2010.

I ocasionally take my 240 out to old dirt/gravel roads, or atv trails and get sidways in the dirt, and hit the bumps maybe a little faster than i should.
It seems like these cars can take everything you throw at them and then some more.

Anyone else interested in this kind of fun?!

On that formula rally X site they only have 1 event for 2010, and that already happened.

We all know theses cars are perfect for this kinda racing!!

An unexpected launch off a bridge approach. Kind of "knocked some sense" into me as my wagon slammed into the asphalt.

I suppose if I hadn't foolhardy wasted $900 on a Holset turbo I could have bought a cheap-o dedicated racer. Rolleyes
Neither of my cars could do it. The 240 is my winter warrior / long-distance cruiser and the 300 is my "nice" summer fun car.
If I were to dedicate a car for rally, I'd probably use a 190D 2.5 and supercharge the piss out of it. Big Grin

RE: Rally
Yeah! I bet it "knocked" some sense into you!
I guess we just gotta be careful as best we can and prepare for unexpected situations!

Well get out there and start looking for a $600 beater to have some fun with!

A 190D would be amazing out in the dirt..funfunn
