Default UNOFFICAL Tamiya Blackfoot Thread

This thread is based on every Tamiya Blackfoot ever made. BLACKFOOT,SUPER BLACKFOOT, AND BLACKFOOT EXTREME.
I used to have one when I was a kid, and just last year I fixed my cousin's Super Blackfoot, wish I had pics.[:@]
He called it the GREAT PUMPKIN because the body was painted a weird orange color.

I had the original blackfoot when I was a kid and LB making all these threads made me think a little about the Blackfoot.
Post away pics cause I made this thread for that reason.

I still got my original 1988 blackfoot rims that I saved, but that's the only part of the truck I have...[:@]

My dad made me give it to my cousin chris when I was 10 years old, not the same cousin metioned above on the other side of my family,
He had his reasons because a neighbor was ripping me off for rc stuff, rc magazines for motors, tires, batteries...
My dad just got tired of the neighbors ripping me off....[:@]
then I started taking Taekwondo classes. I got all the way to brownbelt then quit...got tired of it...[]

Sorry for too much details, but now I just have 1 hobby, just rc.

I'm 27 years old and back in the same boat, spending money...

Sounds like it is time for a Blackfood Extreme...

Without RX and electronics, they are very affordable... don't let me beat you to it..

Just kidding, but it would look cool on my Bullhead.

Sand / snow -> although being a RWD only truck, the front tires shouldn't be paddles...

But I am sure the owner of the truck just think it looks cool... wonder how it turns in the sand / snow...

I have a twin detonator...same thing just has a gearbox in the front as well. You wanna see some modified td's and blackfoots? I'll get some pics for ya But first, here's mine.


I only ran it once because I dont have stick packs and you need stick packs. I want to get it running again soon if possible, I just need to find some scroll saw blades that can cut aluminum sheet so I can make a new chassis.

Pretty cool mod. The clear plastic arms were they hand made?
I like the E-maxx shocks you used. But you should have used Integy piggy backs, man those shocks rule!
Are the CVDs custom made to fit the truck also...[8D]

I think I like the shocks layout on the King Blackfoot better than the new Blackfoot Extreme!!

Yeah the Extreme seems to have very low ground clearance compared to the older ones.

Just the name of the King Blackfoot I guess is saying it's a better version of the Super Blackfoot.
I think the King came out before the Extreme did.

You buy a king blackfoot and we will race lb

I made the suspension arms and extensions for the driveshafts. That was a cheap project so no way was i going to get integy shocks for that one. Sorry that I havent gotten any pics of modded td's yet, havent had the time.

Integy, quality, what?! (joke)

Are those piggyback Integy shocks any good?! I am not trying to bash Integy without having try them, so I am asking.. just that my past experience with Integy's other stuff did not impress me much...
