That's an expensive driving suit to cut up!
Seems to me like he could have gassed it pulling the ass down a bit to level things off.
all wheel drive...
Chicherit crashes cars all the time, I think that's his natural habitat we see him operating in.
He is like the car version of Bang Bang Barreda, except he does not win as many stages
Whooa, I wonder if the guys that modeled this on the computer also modeled the crash!
You mean as opposed to the car he detroyed?
The firewall here at work only let me see the pic with him in bed with the cut up suit, I haven't seen the car. I purchased a new Simpson suit last summer and I'm still paying for it,(someone else payed for the car we flipped :huh).
Friend of mine told me that Honda produces a privateer Rallybike for sale next year, anyone knows something for sure? He read it in a Motomag here in Germany. Haven´t read it yet myself. Google didn´t gave me a answer, and I´m very interested
It was announced in the last paragraph here, but few details
Let us know if you get one.
Hehe, I´m gathering offers
But the Rallyemarket is not that big (KTM 450, 690 RR, GASGAS 450 RAID, Yamaha with JVO, etc.)
So in my opinion the Honda Rally 450 is a enrichment for the "market", but doesn´t go for under 16k.
I would use it mostly for Dualsport purpose and max. 1 rally a year. So I´m tending more to the Defy Quest Kit from KTM Basel. And the good think is, you can bolt it on a 690EnduroR.
I got the oppertunity to buy a Mecasystem-kit for my 450EXC RFS a while ago, but I didn´t go for it (afterwards a big mistake).
With my RFS i participated in the Intercontinental Rally ´14, made it to finish without even 1 Bolt got lose. Ok, I wasn´t the fastest but that´s not the point, the old RFS engine is just top-notch.
"Ahaaaaa... now eye knew why Robeee Gordini push ze motor back to ze meedle of ze leetle trophy truck Hummeeer... non?"
I hope those are his underpants and he doesn't have a lion tattooed around his groin / old fella.
A shameless plug for my Tuareg Rallye 2014 post-rally review over on the official coverage thread - lots of nice photos and tasty info starting at post #255 on page 17: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=956944&page=17
#37 Chris 'Corky' Cork (GBR) in action on day 4:
I think I've found the ultimate Dakar car...
Nothing in the rules says you have to stay on the ground the whole time does it?!
Navigation would be tricky though , but what an excellent idea. You may get some penalties for missing waypoints, but for sure one would set the fastest stage times ever
It would be nice to see the orga people flying with these things all over the place
ART 285. FIA general prescriptions for T1 (modified) cross country vehicles:
Mechanically propelled single engine land vehicles, with 4 to 8 (max) wheels, propelled by their own means, taking continually a real bearing on the ground and of which the propelling device and steering are controlled by the driver on board each vehicle.
These cars may be unit built (prototype) but must comply to the International Convention on Road Traffic, particularly with regards to following points, windscreens/wipers/washers, speedometers, lighting/indicators etc.
Ha - I'm sure Rubby could argue his way out of that one "But the parachute is only to aid braking, nothing else..." ;o)
good point, you could be onto something afterall Jen... Bet there's some potential for RG to ditch the parachute altogether and run a downforce fan/hovercraft skirt on the Gordini and thereby harness all of the surplus hot air from the cockpit... oser
