    Please don't make this a flame thread as I am not thinking of doing this seriously just passing thoughts thru my head. My Talon sits a little to low to the ground for me these days so I dont much like crawling in and out of it, and with no AC I don't drive it much anyway. So I got to thinking what If I put some adjustable coil overs on, set the ride height about 2-3 inches higher than factory, and put some tires with some off road bite on it???

    I searched google and came up with a couple of pictures (literally 2 pics) of 2G's that were rallied out, plenty of 1G's. I kind of think they look good.

    For actual rally competitions? No. The 2G's double wishbone suspension setup is a weak point.

    For more function than form? Sure. If you think it looks good, it'd work fine and be beastly in the snow/gravel/off-road. Just don't try to take it off any sweet jumps. Or hit a pothole too fast.

    You could do hundreds of man hours worth of work to change that, along with some other mods.
    But like he said, just passing by some thoughts...

    You could, but a 1G would be better at it and you could pour those man hours and time into a worthier platform, tbh.
