Do you drive your on-road car "off-road"?


I see a lot of cool looking on-road cars that I'd really like to buy, but they all seem to sit very low to th ground which doen't seem to be a good idea for off road or street use.

Anyone here drive their on-road car off-road or drive them on the streets? If so, tell me, what kind of problems do you encounter other than the obvious?

TT-01 : Rally bashed it once... now its just a street drifter/racer...

Its fun watching it get airbourne when you hit debris on the street.

Did that once with my HSP Flying Fish by fitting it with rubber tyres.. it was fun seeing the dust flew while drifting on the dry gravel. But cleaning the kit afterward wasn't so fun. Plus the air compressor used to clean the kit was contaminated with condensed water thus damaged my esc.

Basher RZ4/RGT DT2 have higher ground clearance than racing touring car. These cars have almost same parts than racing touring car except longer damber and chassis plate without holes. I can easily use it it the street but i avoid gravel. RZ4 run well in very short grass also.


EDIT : I just see that this old thread has been wake up, it slept since 2008

Living so close to a Native Canadian reserve, has great benefits for on road cars. I have numerous Lacrosse boxes that rarely get used, and they're perfect for on road cars.

Cross the Mercier bridge into Kahnawake (spelling?) you may find some lacrosse boxes. I know Châteauguay had them when i was a kid.
