This is the Tamiya 1/10 Frog 2WD High-Performance Electric Radio Controlled Off-Road Buggy Racer Kit. Relive the good old days of 32 pitch gears, 3-piece wheels and kits you build yourself with the Tamiya 1/10 Scale Frog 2WD Off Road Racer!
When Tamiya first introduced the Frog in 1983, the 2WD racing buggy made a huge splash with its eye-catching design and high performance running. The Frog now makes a comeback, updated for a new age, but with its basic structure essentially unchanged. Preserving its characteristic space frame, the oil dampers for trailing-arm type rear suspension have been updated to diaphragm type. The rear drive shaft features a dogbone type joint for secure power transmission. Its sleek polycarbonate body remains the same, while 3-piece wheels feature front grooved and rear spike tires for excellent off-road running.
This electric R/C racing buggy features ABS space frame and nylon suspension and bumper for a lightweight yet rugged form that is perfect for off road running. The battery is held in an ultra-low position, giving this car the stability and weight balance to handle rough terrain and wild jumps. An advanced 4-wheel independent suspension is composed of front double wishbone type featuring in-board spring and durable steel radius arm. The rear trailing arm type features horizontally mounted aluminum cylinder oil dampers for effective shock absorption. A sealed differential gearbox ensures high speed cornering, while full gearbox ball bearings and 3-step gear ratio secures maximum transmission efficiency.
