The main idea was to give this car a different look and to add a few hop up's.The color is PS 32 corsa gray,wheels are from Astute.CRP front &rear shock mounts,dampers from Yeah racing.The drive shaft popped out all the time,so i replaced them with Frog Universal shafts.Custom rear stabilizer and battery holder,i used 4mm transparent PVC and 6mm alu tube.Battery fits well now.

The Astute wheels really suited the Frog! Nice build!

That looks awesome, really nice job. Like the paint scheme too, the black wing looks good with the red shocks/ black wheels etc.

Never been a big fan of the Frog but I think you've changed my mind. Looks awsome! Love pics 1 and 3.

Very cool looking Frog..Now you only need a black chassis to make a more stealth look...Astute wheels are superb..!!

Wanted to get a chrome chassis first,but i guess for racing stock is ok.The best Hop up is on pic 2 ,if you cant see it ?.... click for the big picture and take a deep look into the lights

Oi mate, your Frog kicks! Totally forgot about this car and kinda stumbled across the best Frog ever! Gonna restore mine one day for sure. Nice one!

Best Frog i've seen on here - nice one. Is that a Parma real anti-roll bar or did you custom make it? Also do the Astute Wheels just bolt on? Congrats again!

The anti-roll bar is custom made,and to fit astute wheels you need Frog 2005 Aluminum Wheel Adapter (Nr.53913)

Hey man, do your universal joints work okay? mine wont seem to stay put in the drive cup... don't know why they keep popping out... clicking all the time..

@Tamiya Tim,the universals work ok.At least the shafts didn't pop out anymore.One reason for this problem can be too much rear arm play,but anyway this drive train is definitely not tamiya's best work.
