Yup, Frogs were the dopest ever.
And though my old man brought me back the more expensive/newer Hot Shot from HK (back in the day), I couldn't have been more ungrateful, hahahah.
I believe that was a critical defining moment in my life, when i learned the art of passive-aggressive sooking.
frog was pretty all time. Pinion (sp?) gears lasted about 2 goes though. there was a usa mob making them from alloy I think.
My favorite was the sand scorcher. Hard to drive on the dirt, but it looked so cool. My mate had the Holiday Buggy with the small 380 motor when I got the sand scorcher, then as I outpowered him he got the super champ. now that was a good one. Still I think it had a live axle too, so crap to drive.
After the frog I got the road wizard and had that for a while, got a fox that we never made work. A mate gave me the lambo countach and it lived under my bed for about 10 years, never did anything with it other than toss it out.
I never got the hotshot, wished I did. But i was well into bmx more by then.
Actaully, I had an airboat from an Aussie company, built it up, had the glow engine running and never got to use it. Was riding with it all in my "Tiger" school bag and got hit by a car on the way to the lagoon while on my bmx and it got crushed.
You know I have the and Scorcher Aaron?
It's actually at a dude's place in Ryde, undergoing restoration.
I have a mint Ford F150 XLT as well, based on the same SRB chassis.
Also a mint, never-run Wild One. I'll tale pics of it when I have some time.
I saw your wild one, yes mint.
I liked the f150, that was a sweet model.
as I said, I had a hankering for the Pajero. Also the opel ascona and I think fiat 131? or was it a lancia stratos or 037? can't remember now.
didn't know you had the sand scorcher, which colour B&W or R&Y?

That's no fun!

So buy one and let me know what mods i should do
I dont think i could b arsed spending squillions on a brushless motor and ESC etc the "sports tuned" tamiya motor mite do me for the moment with the alloy dampers and a few pink anodized bits for the ladies.

yeah i kinda realised that after ordering (and i think the $200 price at hobbyco included it from its description) but i had already searched about for better batteries etc already so i'm not that upset haha
The $200 one would have - the SGD$250 example did... though I'm not so sure about the batt I was supplied with actually, it may need an upgrade too?
Wayne, Tamiya stuff is pretty cheap anyway! Does the 3 racing stuff plug and play? I don't have the tools to be a handyman.
