Well , I decided to give my Frog a new heart , so I took out the old MSC set-up and installed a Tamiya ESC and Sport tuned motor . I had some bovver with the body shell , which cracked around the motor cutout area from repeatedly fitting and removing the body . I decided to make up something to stop the stress on the body (and me !!) and I fitted a cut down H4 hex spacer tube in place of the hex pin which then accepts a M3 6mm bolt and rubber washer - easy peasy - sorted . I took the coil over springs off of the front upgrade dampers and fitted the original internal springs into the chassis - smooth as silk . I made up a custom switch plate to mount in the ESC switch . Cleaned up the wheels and fitted new boots all round . A great runner with a 3300 nimh battery . I had a CRP rear bumper ready to go , so that went on - yes it's upside down , but it works and looks better that way . Thanks to Si & Andy for their help with parts :)

Dunno where but I think I've seen this Frog before. Great paintjob, nice colors. And the painted chassis make it look even better. Of course, the mods do something to it in a good way. I like it, and you know some action pictures will not hurt, Kev

Frogs are pretty quick out the box, I bet it's a bit nuts with a sport tuned and esc! Love the paint job, Kev! Love it!
