Rally vehicle dynamics design is a quintessential part of motorsports in today’s do-it-yourself world. An aspiring hobbyist aims to design and implement a robust build which is simulated initially using software tools and furthermore, developed as a large-scale manufacturable product. This report aims to discuss the ABC’s of a professional vehicle build which incorporates the use of all the aforementioned features of development. Consequently, the final build is an integration of many modern and futuristic features and hacks that are supposedly a niche requirement in today’s automobile industry. The features highlight the modifications and improvements to the essential sub-systems of a typical commercial vehicle. Subsequently, the vehicle can then be used in rallying, off-roading and as a means of transportation in rugged and tough terrains.This report elaborates a basic proof of concept of the features thereby implementable, a design summary of the wholistic build of such a vehicle, the adaptations performed and a conceptual generalized calculation that can be implemented on any generic vehicle. Some of the features elaborated are: On- demand drive change mechanism, Independent wheel braking system, An Onboard diagnostics tool which is configurable to any required engine specification and a contrast of independent and partially dependent suspension.
