If you are serious about making an impression on the circuit, then the Rally Fighter is what you should be investing in. This is the latest design from Sangho Kim and the team that takes a car and transforms it into a winning machine. We took a look at the latest version of the Rally Fighter to find out why this machine is beating all the rest. What we discovered will leave you in awe.
We’re looking at a powerhouse machine that packs a punch and still comes in at under 4,000 in curb weight. The overall width is a solid 80 inches, with a track width of 65.5 inches. This means you have a wheelbase of 115 inches which is what gives the Rally Fighter is tight control on the road. The length of the car is perfect, just under 190 inches with a manual dual ride height that can range from 61.25 to 69.25. The hardpoints are enough to sell this Rally Fighter to anyone who is serious.
While a lot of the soft areas are standard for rally cars, the Rally Fighter makes two important changes in the front and rear tire type which increases responsiveness and reliability. The front is a 12.9 inch dual piston floating and ventilated. The rear is a 13.9 inch ventilated as well, but is powered by a single piston. When you combine it with the 4 wheel braking system and mount the whole chassis on multiple ride heights of 275/70R-17 and 265/50R-20 on aluminum alloy 17×8 rims, you see why drivers can feel like the Rally Fighter is riding on air, without any loss of feel for the ground.
The chassis is incredibly important in a rally car. The Rally Fighter doesn’t disappoint at all. Starting with a tubular steel space frame, the suspension in the front and rear are customized to promote the best handling and most responsive action you have ever seen. The front has a detachable stabilizing bar with a spring system coil over shock arrangement. It also has an independent double A-arm that has an 18 inch travel capacity. The rear boasts a 20 inch travel range with a 4 link solid 9 inch axle construction. All of this is mounted and fixed with a 6 x5.5 lug pattern with a rack and pinion steering systems.
We saved the best for last, and in the Rally Fighter that is the drivetrain specs. This is a powerhouse that uses the Corvette 6.2 liter V8 engine for power. It comes as an automatic, but you can also opt for a manual transmission. It has a powerful 430 horse power rating coming in at 5,900 rpm, with a 424 pound per foot push coming in at 4,600 rpm. All of this is powered by a rear wheel drive, dual exhaust system, but surprisingly – the Rally Fighter is emission compliant in all 50 states.
