  1. Just curious what your opinions are- box stock. I had a Frog (still have it) growing up and was interested in the Falcon and Fox but never acquired them. I had heard that the Falcon and Fox were supposed to be improvements over the Frog, but they were never as popular. So, which was the best performer out the box?
  2. Wanted- 1988 Tamiya R/C Guidebook (with Avante on the cover) in like new or excellent condition. English/US version preferred. Thanks!
  3. Thanks. Pulled it out last night and everything works! Even the Tamiya 7.2V "racing pack"! I think I will dissamble everything. I am missing some screws. I still have the original box, blister packs (opened obviously), three motors, and mechanical speed control. I even have the original sales receipt ($109.00 plus $4 shipping) from August 1988. I guess I was somewhat anal even back then. Frustratingly, I cannot find my owner's manual. Pictures from 1988 will be forthcoming- I think they're at my parent's house in another state.
  4. Hi everybody- I recently got my Frog out of storage- it hasn't run since 1989. I'm feeling waves of nostaglia and want to get it running again. If I can find them, I'll post pictures I took in 1988 of me proudly holding my freshly completed Frog! I'd forgotten how much I'd modified it- Thorp differential, Tekin ESC/BEC, Trinity motor, ball bearings all around. I still can't recall how I could afford to buy all this stuff as a 16 year old! I would really appreciate advice on what to clean, lube, and replace. I'm thinking at the minimum I need to disassemble and lube the gearbox and Thorp diff, replace the oil-filled shocks, lube the rear trailing arm attachments and the ball bearings. The chassis and wheels have yellowed with age. Any parts I need to consider replacing? Thanks!
