Ya I spent alotta time on that, planning to make it a shelf queen but I found it was just sitting in that stage forever so i sold it. It had the thorp diff and everything and I sold it for 80. I probably would have made more on ebay but oh well.

Ya thorp diffs are worth more than I sold the truck for in that condition lol. The ones with regular dogbone ends are worth more though.

After seeing the pic a little better, it basically adds in a Ball-Diff to the Blackfoot Tranny...
At least that's what it looks like to me..[8D]

So you could run a brushless system in that blackfoot and not have to worry about stripped gears or twisted axels.

Pretty much. I never would because of the ridk of breaking something, plus it's not the greatest design so I'll keep the bashing to my newer cars with steel gears

hey everyone im Tom im 28 my son is 9. I have been into rc for awhile but never had anything really nice. Most of it was cheap stuff. When i was a kid i won a grasshopper ll suger g and its still in the box just never got around to put it together.

The past few days i have been looking on ebay for a one. Not sure what i wanted i was looking at nitro and electric. It also depended on the price. I found a original Tamiya Blackfoot today. I was kind of looking for one that we could repair but i found this one. I have been wanting a blackfoot for a little while but finally found one. Ill try to post some pics of it. Ill get some better pics of it when i get it.

congrats on your "new blackfoot" something you might want to look into to make it more durable are the rerelese frog gearbox joints and cvds, and welcome to RCU

Here they are they will be worth the investment.

Any car goes as fast as the electronics you put in it. With a sliver can, stock motor it will do around 20mph.

Most Tamiya vehicles like the blackfoot would run pretty fast with the Sport Tuned motor.

Nah, sport tuned is barely any better than stock. Go for a nice 27t or a 19t if you're feeling confident.

No it's not like the silvercan at all, I was winning races with it in my Gravel hound.
Plus I ran it in my tamiya TL-01 and noticed a faster speed difference than the Pk2 I had in it..

Id put ball bearings in it but that's it. The sport tuned is like a silvercan but its black. You dont have to worry about brushes either.

LoL! I have owned one, ran one in a gravel hound, dissambled and compared, and ther is only a slight difference in the armature and the sport tuned had advanced timing.

For the thread. Monster Beatles were popular along with the blackfoot, but still same chassis, just different shells.
