Tamiya Frog

Tamiya Off Road Chassis (ORV) LiPo Battery Hatch

Since I found parts of an old Tamiya Blackfoot and Frog in the cellar, I've put together a driving Frankenstein-Car with some modern parts. Just the LiPos I use for other RC stuff didn't fit very well so I made this replacement hatch.

I don't have the original pin to lock it so I use a screw. If you want to use the pin, you'd have to remove the 2 additional loops on the back (I guess that would be better anyway because it turns out my screw is not long enough :D ).

The LiPos I'm using this for are roughly 3,5 x 2,5 x 10,5 cm.

Tamiya Off Road Chassis (ORV) Skis

Trying to make it more winter ready, I created skis for my Tamiya Frog.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to test them yet, there is no snow :)

Tamiya Off Road Chassis (ORV) Snow Tires

Trying to make it more winter ready, I created snow tires for my Tamiya Frog.

Initially I wanted to create something to slide over the small sand tires but that didn't work out. So i glued this on some old monster truck rims.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to test them yet, since there is still no snow here :)
