Default xD getting dirty...Rally Cross car and DD

I have a 2008 xD that is my current Rally Cross car and daily driver. I am very impressed on how the car handles and holds up in the dirt. I have only done a few modification to the xD. More Are for sure to come.

The first mod I did was a skid plate probably the best and smartest mod. Also some rally Armor mud flaps.

Some other things had done to it is I straight piped it from the axle back. Put a spectra cone filter on. Made a custom Engine cover.
I have many more things to do on my list just waiting on cash flow and waiting on a new daily driver before start doing some of the bigger mods lol.

List of a few things:

Roll cage
Racing Seats
Weight reduction
Reinforce shock mounts
Strut bar
Sway bars

Default Engine Cover you made

Hi,
Great photos and sure looks like fun!

Any chance to get a DIY on your Engine Cover?
Looks Awesome and something I'd sure like to make for mine!

PM me if you would rather keep it out of the thread.

Thanks and Aloha!

very nice. have you thought about removing back seats and some carpet before races to help with weight reduction. I know it's not a whole lot, but hey 50lbs is 50lbs

Plans are when the car is paid off. Turn into a full stage rally car. Just slowly building it tell then. Got a few years lol. But a stage rally car takes a lot of money and time so building it slow is the way to go.

I feel ya. I got similar plans for mine. I'm planning on doing a 2zz swap with a turbo, wanting to get about 400 to the wheels, but like you, once it's paid off

Sweet looking ride but I think would look better if you painted the mudflaps green also oh and put some fog lights in the actual fog holes 2 but keep the ones you have on also.

Cant really paint the mud flaps to flexible would just crack and chip. Plus all the rocks and stuff hitting them. Probably just going to go back to the black ones.
