That only means you HAVE to get the Tamtech miniature version.

Hee hee.. Grasshopper, eh?! If you are going w/ Grasshopper, I'd go w/ the Hornet instead.. it is basically the same thing but with lexan body, 540-motor (instead of 380), live axle, oil shocks on the back.. just a better car...

Join the vintage parade, man!!

You'll have fun with it. It's awesome on shorts grass or dirt. Spring is the prime time for running the frog

I will mess around w/ the front oil shock conversion.. hee hee..

Other than the shock tower, did you get the screw kit?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...6322&rd=1&rd=1

Any idea what the rear shock mount is for?

Hmm.. so if you take a look at the screw kit above in the link, you need that too, right?

Very nice, I can watch this one until I get the Brat.

BTW, fix the thread title while you still can. You are missing the R in "strikes"

1/16 scale Frog.. I wonder if these are any good.. how well it will stack up to a Mini-T, for example...
