I was planing on building my R/X as a rally car but have reconsidered.
it would work fine for a rally X car.
there are no upgraded factory replacement struts avl. for those cars that would work for rally. custom coil overs are possible but not cheap.:-\ the cabin area would be a bit tight with a roll cage installed. it would also place you in the same class as the WRX and lancer evo. In stock form those cars are awesome.
I will be looking to buy a 2wd normaly aspirated car first to have a low cost starter car. I recomend buying a completed car too.
not what you wanted to hear but it might save some frustration.
if the budget alows go for it. any thing can be done with enough green backs.

I just won in open class with my baaaaarely modded 97 4 door L impreza. I've only added a cold air intake and cheap snow tires.
This last time, there were 4 full on rally cars and 2 modded STI's (300+hp) among the 30 or so cars in my class.
Second place went to a guy in the twin to my car. Same basic set-up, except he had also added a flomaster exaust.
Drivers win rallys, not always cars.
I say start out in a basic car, have fun learning how, then upgrade to a faster better car.
